Noah's first serve is far, far better than expected. Really impressive. Second serve could use more kick though

Agree. He's got a tiny bit more power on the ground strokes than I expected as well... but still more of a finesse player.

I think we would get a much better idea of his ground game if he were playing singles. I've really only seen him hit cross court balls with a lot of margin

I thought they had the match. Should have won the first set for sure!

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

JD is in Newport Qualifying: http://www.atpworldtour.com/posting/2013/315/qs.pdf

Don't think he will qualify, but should be a good experience. Hopefully, he stays long enough for a reunion with Stefan And hopefully, there will be some pictures on the tournament website. I'm anxious to see how big he has gotten.

Jared got through by retirement. Should be good experience against Herynch who is very good on grass.

I think this is Jared, hard to recognize him without his Nike fittings and headband. He still uses the Head racket. Looks taller with longer hair, but still on the skinny side.

JD lost 61 63, I'm guessing he will stay for the US Hardcourt tournaments before heading back to Argentina.

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

My bet is Kozolov to win Kalamazoo. IMO he has the most upside in any of the amercian juniors.

Djokovic
Del Potro Berdych
Donskoy Dodig Lacko Stepanek Gulbis Davydenko Kudla Cuevas Goffin
