Re: Michael McClune

He got a wild card for the Indian Wells qualifying. He's already down in Palm Springs practicing.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Michael McClune

He was named as a practice partner for the upcoming DC Tie... should be a good experience for him

Re: Michael McClune

McClune lost to Michael Yani 7-6, 6-0 in the second round of qualifying in the Baton Rouge Challenger. A pretty disappointing loss. I'm surprised by how poor his results have been this year.

Re: Michael McClune

Seems his trip to Dubai with Federer hasn't turned into the results they might've hoped for. He's just gotta stick with it though

I love a good service motion. Thank goodness for YouTube, somebody uploaded some videos of Michael at USO last year and I really like what I see. I hope I'll get to see some more of him soon.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Michael McClune

I saw McClune play at teh Carson challenger...and was very impressed. I like his movement...he's quick. And a good fh, but he has to develop a couple weapons to hurt his opponents a bit more.

He's just got to keep on working, because he seems to have what it takes to move up. Whether he's a top 50 player remains to be seen, but I think he can be much higher than he is now.

And he seems like a good kid...

I was there on Wednesday, and because of change of plans, for about 3 hours on Thursday.

I thought of you when I looked into going, but my niece doesn't have internet access so there was no way to pm you to see if you were going. I had to call my brother and have him look up the directions for me.

I need to buy a phone that has the internet. It was so frustrating not having the internet for days.

Nice little tournament. And love the grounds at the Home Depot Center.

Aren't you East Coast based? Was this just a visit?

Yup, I live in Connecticut. I visted my nephew in SF for a couple of days and then my niece in the LA area. But I was also checking it out because there is a possibility of moving there in a couple of years. I've been to LA a number of times and always liked it, but wanted to doublecheck. The only problem is that I don't know if I can afford to live there. Everything is so expensive.

Re: Michael McClune

McClune is up to #326 in the rankings this week. He's starting to win consistently at the Futures level. Hopefully, he can get into a few Challengers before the year is out.

This guy is most waste talent so far

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic and Mikael Ymer

Thiem will be No 1 by Dec 2017
Nick Kyrgios will be No 1 by Sep 2018
Mikael Ymer will be No 3 by Dec 2018
Alexander Zverev will be No 3 by Dec 2017
