I guess we should be happy that Noah even got to the doubles final, not his specialty to put it mildly Down 6-3 *4-0 ATM

Thank goodness the rain came later into the week unlike at 53 Trofeo Bonfiglio where he lost badly to a local wildcard in the first round 36 16

Of all the players train at Boca, I think Stefan is the only one capable of playing well on all surfaces. Thai can only play on fast surface, Spencer only on slow outdoor or clay, Luca is well Luca (struggling).
Papa was very good on fast surfaces before he started training in Boca. He did have a breakthrough on clay this year. He could definitely use some help with dubs play which will make him a better singles player on faster surfaces where he has less time to produce his shots. Kozlov is Kozlov, so he can play on Mars. Redlicki can play better indoors and fast outdoor. His lack of movement can be exposed on clay easier, although he did well in delray. Thai and Corinteli need to step up. They are both trying to get back into playing more aggressive style quick worked for them before. There is a trend with kids out of Boca, they stop playing aggressive and attacking style and back up a few feet. It s a shame since there are very able kids going through the training there and they level off after a few years there.

It s no coincidence that Rubin, Kruger, Tiafoe, Mmoh are competing better than Boca kids. Even Paul started playing looser and better after leaving Boca. Rubin played a subpar level in Tulsa and yet won it because he out competed everyone.

Maybe private coaching is the way to go.

Other similarities: both were or are promoted by Johnny Mac and both are small in stature and yet are way ahead of their peers. Let s just hope that the similarities end there, otherwise the great success in juniors will be the biggest accomplishment. But I think Rubin is a way too smart of a kid and has a pretty good team of people around him.

Interestingly, Kozlov gets private coaching from his parents when he is home on the weekends.

Maybe. I heard, although not confirmed yet, that Thai, Redlicki, Corinteli and paul are training elsewhere, not with Usta. A smart and timely move in terms of development. I hope they will not drive Papa, Kozlov and other kids into the same vicious cycle that is becoming a trend in Boca. Too many examples of wasted talents and opportunities.
Level of coaching, infrastructure and facilities are in place in Boca. However, the basic philosophy, structure and genuine care for the kids is absent because of self serving and arrogant attitudes coming from the top.

I begin to sound like Wayne Bryan. So, I shall stop now unless someone wants to hear more.

You seem to have an insight into what goes on in Boca. I have more general information, and I keep in touch with few people that sometimes are willing to discuss certain situations.

Did not know that about Kozlov. Usta takes credit for all his success.

Tommy now trains at L'Academie de Tennis in Boynton Beach
I think Thai still trains with the USTA in Boca, but he also trains with his original coach when at home in Charlotte.
I think Luca is still at Boca, not sure though.
