They definitely both need some college time. I'm a little disappointed that Halebian is going for it now, but I'm pretty sure his family can financially withstand him grinding it out of the futures circuit for a few years. I just hope it doesn't wear him out mentally.

Actually from what I heard, Halebian s family is not in a position to withstand the grind of the futures circuit financially. I think Halebian did get some money from signing with CAA agency.

I agree, but if I have to choose one I would rather have Halebian go to college. I hope Adams can add some pounds while he is at Texas A&M, which I think he will.

Oh. I thought I remembered someone saying his family was pretty wealthy, but honestly that's just heresay and I don't know how reliable they were (or my memory is).

Had numerous chats with Alex s brother, Edmon, and he made it pretty clear that the family is not struggling to make ends meet but certainly can t finance Alexios ' tennis schedule requirements. The kid did get some money from his contract, probably very similar to what Kruger got from Octagon. Btw, Kruger lost to Sandgren today in the first round of Texas future.

Re: 1994-1996 : Rubin, Kwiatkowski, Halebian, Papa, Corinteli, McDonald, Donaldson,

Here's Noah Rubin at Pan Am this year. He gets a ridiculous amount of racket head speed on the forehand side.

It's interesting to compare it to Filip Peliwo's video who also won it at 16yr old in 2010

Slow week, not many players in action.

Everyone is so fired up about football. Mitch and Thai #gambling
Christian getting Michael Sell's first tweet
Great response by Coach Sell btw: https://twitter.com/_sellmichael/sta...69864006201344
Then Tennys and Rhyne just have to butt in and ruin it, so typical of them

Re: 1994-1996 : Rubin, Kwiatkowski, Halebian, Papa, Corinteli, McDonald, Donaldson,

Just looked at the Q for Birmingham and the only name that stood out to me in the final round is Aron Hiltzik, Jared's little brother. Unfortunately, his next opponent is the No.1 seed. Don't know much about Aron but did a search and the following came up:

Smyczek practices with Hiltzik and Fawcett

Quote:
Tim is in town for the weekend training and was nice enough to spend some time with Aron Hiltzik and Tom Fawcett today. Both boys got to hit for about 1.5 hours with Tim, each working on something different with him.

Tim and I spent a lot of time this morning working on a few things we feel need to become strengths of his. It just happens that Aron is working on some of those same things…it was a great experience for Aron to see how a pro goes about “working” on his game.

Aron had this to say about the day, “It was an amazing experience hitting with a pro and knowing where I need to be to make it to the next level. Tim was a good mentor to me by helping me with my forehand.”


Aron was also featured in the new Wilson commercial:

^Maybe he will get one for Pensacola too.


This is probably the most interesting tweet from Spencer. Have to say that he is not a very exciting tweeter

Pretty weak future! Great opportunity to get easier points.

I always wonder how Sekou play He gave Christian and Spencer a hard time. Btw, Aron didn't qualify.
