Re: Ryan Sweeting

And now he's signed with IMG......

IMG signs Ryan Sweeting for representation
November 21, 2006

Ryan Sweeting, the 19-year-old rising American tennis star who won the U.S. Open Juniors in 2005, has signed for exclusive worldwide representation with IMG.

Sweeting, ranked 372 on the ATP Tour, advanced to the second round in his first U.S. Open as a professional this summer, playing a tight five-set match before being defeated by the 36th-ranked player in the world. In May, 2006, he won a Futures event in Vero Beach, Florida.

“Ryan’s turning professional has been one of the most anticipated developments in American tennis,” commented Tony Godsick, IMG Senior Vice President of Tennis, and a member of the IMG team that signed Sweeting. “He knows he carries a lot of hopes for the future of American tennis, but he’s prepared with a great game and emotional maturity to take on the challenges.”

“It’s flattering to be pursued by the big agencies,” Sweeting said. “My family and I decided on IMG because their team and expertise are in keeping with our goals. They realize that tennis is the top priority and will make sure I can concentrate fully on my sport.”

The 6 foot 3 right-handed player was born July 14, 1987, in Nassau, Bahamas. He lives in Fort Lauderdale, and attended the University of Florida this year before deciding to devote full time to tennis.

“We’re working with Ryan on a schedule for next year that can embed him in the ATP Tour while developing his game,” added Eisenbud.

Re: Ryan Sweeting

ryan does have a lot of talent, but physically needs to do better. He is quite skinny, and not very strong. He can surely hit some big shots, but i dont think that he will consistently be a top competitor. He has a lot of work to do in cleaning up his game. He plays very wristy, but is sloppy way to often.

Re: Ryan Sweeting

Ryan is finally making some breakthrough. He started 2009 by reaching Noumea CH semis (def. Guez, Lisnard Roger-Vasellin and lost to Mayer) and then he played AO qualies, where he reached R3 (def Schukin, Ouanna and lost a close 3-setter to Ouahab). After that, Ryan went to USA and he has reached Dallas CH final, where he gonna play another in-form american Brendan Evans tommorow.

Mardy Fish!

Sweeting has all the tools. It looks like this may be his breakthrough year. He should be a top 100 player.

Re: Ryan Sweeting

He played extremely well in the final, winning 6-4 6-3. Some of the shots he was pulling off (especially on match point) were pretty sick. If he can keep his head and play consistently like this, top 100 would just be the beginning

I agree. There is no glaring weakness in his game that I can see. His forehand, backhand, and serve are all quality, and few have his combination of power and mobility. I think he's somewhat reminiscent of Blake, except he has a two-handed backhand and plays with a little more caution. From what people have said about him, it seems that his biggest weakness has been a lack of poise. He didn't show that at all this week, but then again he was playing at such a high level that there wasn't much to lose one's temper over.

BTW, he's now won two of his last six Challengers, and didn't drop a set in either. It's a shame that he won't have a chance to play in San Jose. I think he should get a wild card in Memphis, ahead of Isner, Levine, Odesnik, Delic, Young, and the others.

Re: Ryan Sweeting

I remember when he came out of nowhere to win the USO Juniors and TTC happened to play it and I was really impressed at all the shots he had. I saw him play a year or two ago at Indian Wells and he was abysmal. Hopefully he can find some consistency and get into the ATP events. Seems like his form is pretty good so maybe he will get a WC. Delic got a lot of attention with his run at the AO so he might get it, but generally they tend to favor the younger players for the WC, don't they?

Yeah, generally they like young up-and-comers and high profile guys (like Baghdatis, who got a WC this week). Delic did get a lot of press at the AO, but Sweeting's momentum may earn him a wild card. Odesnik won the Carson Challenger, so he should be considerd as well, but if it's one or the other, I would give it to Sweeting since he's two years younger.

Re: Ryan Sweeting

oh, in the entry list thread it says baghdatis, haas, and roddick got the three memphis WCs. So i guess it's a moot point. too bad! Then again maybe Sweeting can qualify into a few of these events, might give him some good confidence

It's always unfortunate when WCs have to be given to guys who would have received direct entry. Not that I disagree with it, but it frustrates me that they didn't enter the damn tournament to begin with.

If the qualy WCs haven't been decided, hopefully he'll get one of those. He can play with these guys if he maintains this level of play. There's no doubt about it.
