This guy, along with a couple of other Aussies, is almost making me feel patriotic. I actually cheered for him in a couple of matches :eek: and he seems like a nice enough guy. Here are some pictures from Adelaide qualifying last week...

Adams second round qualifying match in Adelaide, against Frank Dancevic

01-05-2008, 08:20 AM
Mr Feeney's photos from todays qualifying at the Sydney tournament. Wish he would quit playing other people I am interested in, I am growing tired of:
a) cheering for the other guy.
b) seeing him lose [gee that makes my players sound good huh]

It's Adam!!!!! :hearts:

Wooo thanks for taking the photos that I haven't had a chance to take yet.

Can't believe I didn't take my camera to the wildcard playoffs... didn't realise I was going to become such a big fan of Mr Feeney during that day I was there.

Great photos Kristen :dance: I'm glad I've succeeded in semi-converting you ;)

01-05-2008, 08:54 AM
If he was Swedish or Austrian, he would have all the traits I like in a tennis player... this week I've become more interested in Aussies. They're not as bad as I make them out to be hey! :p

01-10-2008, 09:26 AM
Lost Today In a close match 6-4 (1)6-7 7-9


01-10-2008, 10:41 AM
He did well today, just got away from him in the end.

01-10-2008, 08:52 PM
It's ashame because he had a match point when receiving at 6-4 5-4 Ad-40...Oh well, can't win them all!!

01-25-2008, 12:44 PM
I was really impressed with Adam's third round doubles effort at the Australian Open. Good points and dollars which helps. He is a good looking and very nice fella.

01-26-2008, 04:17 PM

01-27-2008, 05:45 AM
Would love to know about Adam's schedule from here on in. Anyone got any clue? It will be a bit of a scheduling quandary as he could play the bigger events wih his doubles ranking but not the singles. It must be tempting but I hope he keeps persisting!

03-01-2008, 01:14 PM
Adam is back in action again next week and he has drawn Danai Udomchoke form Thailand in the first round of a challenger. Good luck Adam! We love you!

03-03-2008, 02:23 PM
Damn. He lost first round to Danai, 6-7 2-6 in Kyoto.

03-04-2008, 11:55 AM
Bugger! But he is top seed in the doubles with Robert Smeets. I wonder where Carsten Ball is these days?

03-15-2008, 11:38 AM
Adam is into the final of a challenger against Colin Ebelthite! Go you good thing!

04-12-2008, 10:21 AM
Good luck this week coming in Busan Korea. We are seeded number 7 and I hope we can really rip it up and meet Alun in the final. How cool would that be?

04-12-2008, 02:41 PM
Ahh it would be lovely. Being in Korea, chances of him playing someone I really like a lot, would be minimal. Go you good sort, you. It is very rare for me to support an Australian. We need like, a B-Team in Davis Cup...I'd be super patriotic then!

and Adam AND Alun both lost so that didn't work :sad:

Adam lost 46 67 to Nick Lindahl :(

04-14-2008, 11:57 AM
That was a huge opportunity for both Adam and Alun!

04-14-2008, 02:36 PM
and Adam AND Alun both lost so that didn't work :sad:

Adam lost 46 67 to Nick Lindahl :(I am so proud of you for following such low ranked players :hug: Is this how you came across Oli's score? :D Only bright side for me here, and this is pathetic and desperate, is that Adam lost to the Indo-Swede of Australians :tape:

It's a shame he lost, and sooo close too. Hopefully Nick can continue to do well here.

04-20-2008, 12:50 PM
Congratulations to Adam for reaching the final of the 75k DOUBLES FINAL in Busan Korea! He and Rameez lost but well done anyhow!

06-08-2008, 12:48 AM
Adam has progressd through to the final qualifying round of the Stella Artois Tournament in London. He plays Rik deVoest in the third round. This is a huge opportunity to make some good dollars and also some great points. Joe is there also with him in Round 3!

06-15-2008, 12:22 AM
Does anyone know if Adam will make the Wimbledon qualifying? I really hope so!

06-15-2008, 12:48 AM
Yer Adams in :) as is


and Coelho is 7 spots out

06-15-2008, 09:01 AM
Thanks Azza! You are a legend! Go Adam! He played really well this week so I am hopeful!

06-15-2008, 02:05 PM
Hope he goes well

Good luck :)

06-24-2008, 03:00 PM
Adam is into the main draw of the doubles with Brunstrom of Sweden. This is a great opportunity to get some doubles points, some grand slam results and some dollars. Their first round looks ok and he should win which would make me a very happy man!

06-25-2008, 10:19 AM
There locked at 2 sets all its a 1 set shoot out tonight!

06-25-2008, 10:35 PM
Mens Doubles first round: Johan Brunstrom Sweden and Adam Feeney Australia defeated Haggard and Zovko 6/2 3/6 4/6 6/3 and 7/5! Adam has a won a round at Wimbledon! This is really awesome for him and for us!

06-28-2008, 09:50 AM
Lost in the second round in 4 sets but we still did claim a victory which is sensational!

07-01-2008, 02:51 AM
Nice first up win in Dublin over James Cluskey 6/3 7/5

08-04-2008, 10:55 PM
Adam is having sone good success at the moment over his travelling mates. Last week he smashed Robert Smeets in the first round and overnight he has beaten Colin Ebelthite in three close sets to advance to the second round. I would like to see him now progress beyond round 2. Keep going mate!

08-04-2008, 11:27 PM
I generally dont like it when a higher ranked player beats a lower ranked compatriot

08-05-2008, 12:39 AM
He is getting the most out of his ability. You can only respect that.

08-05-2008, 09:54 AM
Now watch him move up the rankings. Watch this space!

08-05-2008, 12:16 PM
Now watch him move up the rankings. Watch this space!

Actually Adam is defending a heap of points (like 60!)in the next few weeks so he will need some big performances to even stay where he is!:rolleyes:

08-05-2008, 12:45 PM
It is fantastic to see Adam clearly starting to get wins over some of his travelling tour mates. Regardless of other poster's opinions, I actually rate Robert Smeets and Colin Ebithite as top players. Therefore Adam is clearly in great form and equally those true supporters of Mens tennis in Australia should remain positive and encouraging. Go Adam and keep it up. Great wins will ensure that the ranking will improve.

08-07-2008, 05:10 AM
another good win for adzo

08-08-2008, 10:04 AM
Keep it going Adam! You have some great support behind you mate!

11-09-2008, 09:52 AM
Preety dismal year for Adam onto 2009 i guess

11-12-2008, 02:16 PM
Good luck in Perth Adam.

12-07-2008, 10:56 AM
Did well to make the final in Perth, but unfortunately not his best day in the final...a number of df's and looked to be lifting up on the forehand often. Great backhand and volleys though

12-08-2008, 01:03 PM
Tight second set Auscon. Seems that Adam has found form just at the right time!

12-09-2008, 01:42 PM
Tight second set Auscon. Seems that Adam has found form just at the right time!

Not quite as close as the score suggests never looked in doubt for MM. Adam was coughing a bit during the match though so I think he may have been a bit under the weather

12-11-2008, 12:25 PM
Thanks Auscon for the comments. MM is a huge star on the rise I reckon.

06-05-2009, 06:00 AM
Good effort by Feeney to get into the Quarters of the Yuba City Challenger after having to go through qualifying. His next match will be near impossible for him against Russell but nonetheless it has been a great week for him.

06-05-2009, 06:12 AM
Feeney is a nice bloke. Good to see him make a nice run. I haven't heard anything about him for a very long time.

10-25-2009, 03:52 AM
Does Adam still play does anyone know?

01-01-2010, 11:24 PM

This is an article he wrote for The Tennis Tribe

He's been out of action with an elbow injury for quite a while and is on the recovery trail

Adam Feeney: Nothing can keep me away from tennis
December 30, 2009, 2:02am
By Adam Feeney

In February 2009 I began to feel some discomfort in my right elbow when I served. I didn’t think much of it initially. I have previously had issues with my ulna nerve in my elbow and had been told it couldn't get any worse. So I was told!!

Unfortunately, it did get progressively worse and by June, when I was in America playing Futures and Challenger tournaments, and my elbow hurt on everything apart from backhands. I had to take anti inflammatory medication before every match just to get through. After seeing a few physiotherapists over there, I realised that I had to come home and get it sorted out once and for all.

Back in Australia I saw Dr Kuah, a Sports Doctor at the NSW Institute of Sport where I was diagnosed with “medial epicondylitis”, commonly known as Golfer's Elbow.

I bet you’re thinking "hang on you play tennis, don't you mean tennis elbow?" As I discovered, Tennis Elbow is tendonitis of the outside of the elbow, whereas Golfer's Elbow is the inside of the elbow.

At my first appointment I was given a cortisone injection and within 3 weeks and with a bit of rehab I was back on court. Unfortunately this was short lived as after three weeks of training the pain was back again.

My Doctor asked if I would consider a relatively new treatment called PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). I suppose I had nothing to lose!

PRP is a procedure which saw them draw out some of my blood, put it in a centrifuge and spin it round until the platelets separate. From there, they inject the platelet rich plasam back into the injury site.

I needed this treatment on two occasions, with 6 weeks in between sessions and was given a very basic rehab program by my physiotherapist, Kingsley Gibson. Gradually I was able to get back into the gym and started doing some upper body weights. After the 2nd PRP Treatment the rehab began to become more tennis specific and stressful on my forearm to prepare it to be able to handle lots of repetition so I could hit plenty of tennis balls again.

Throughout my rehabilitation I have been receiving physiotherapy and acupuncture therapy to get my forearm loose. On alternative weeks, I also receive a deep tissue massage for my whole body from my massage therapist Ian McCoy.

During my recovery I have been doing weight training on my legs as well as endurance and sprint training in order to maintain my strength and fitness. My coach, Janine Thompson thought why not come back out on court and start hitting left handed and doing court sprints with her. So, this began my left handed career for the next 10 weeks!

I thought hitting left handed could be fun and challenging but what I didn't know was that Janine wanted me to use a wooden racquet to make it even harder! Looking back at that experience I feel it has kept my eye in and allowed me to keep using tennis movement patterns. Of course, playing left handed against my mates has also kept the competitive fire burning!

Janine asked me to help out at Parramatta Tennis complex with a few local squads. During this time I did some tennis specific fitness exercises with one of her players, Natasha Fragos, who is a very talented young junior girl. As well as the fitness, I was also going to tournaments to do match analysis for another one of her up and coming players, Brooke Taylor. This experience has been really enlightening as I have never really seen the game from an outside perspective. Without doubt I was able to take a few things away from the sessions myself and I have hopefully passed on some good lessons to the girls as well.

From working with these players and spending time at their tournaments it's been great to see that there is plenty of up and coming talent in NSW. In January I will again be assisting Janine with the junior country Fed Cup teams who are competing in Sydney. I feel privileged that the knowledge I have gained from my years on the tour can be passed on to the younger kids coming through. Without doubt the biggest lesson I have learned in my career that life as a tennis professional is not just about money and glory, it's also (more importantly) about hard work and lots of sacrifice.

Until now, the longest period of time I have been home in a single visit over the past 7 years has been around 3 weeks. So, 6 months out of tennis I thought I would go insane. In reality though it has gone rather quickly. My time off has meant that I have been able to do a few things that I usually wouldn’t because I'm travelling so much.

I went to the snow for three days, something I hadn't done since I was 15, which was really good fun. I have also been able to spend a lot more time with my girlfriend Nikita, catch up with more of my family on the Central Coast, play with my little nephew, and hang out with some good mates. This lifestyle has made being injured and not being on the tour seem not too bad.

But in saying that, I have been jumping out of my skin to get back on tour and playing again, especially now as the Australian summer is about to start.

I started hitting right handed 3 weeks ago (with a little sadness from my lefty coach who thought I had a promising left handed career!). These sessions were only 20 minutes every 2nd day with a ratio of 3 backhands to 1 forehand. I am now up to over 30 minutes every second day, but with an even ratio of backhands to forehands. I still haven't served yet as this comes when I progress to an hour of hitting. So far, all has been well and I haven't felt any pain which is great. Having to ice after every session does get a bit tedious at times though!

I'm aiming to be back playing tournaments hopefully by the middle of February at the grass court Futures events around Australia. Once I get back I will be happy to get a full season in 2010 where my goal is to get my ranking up to 250. This should then set me up for a big year in 2011!

Adam is into the semis of the AO Playoff. Great performance from him. Matosevic up next.

01-23-2011, 10:30 AM
deserves a bump for his doubles 3rd round at the ao.

01-24-2011, 12:33 AM
Its interesting about the semi final result he got in Korea last year. He played Raonic from Canada and he won the first set then lost 0 and 2. Now today Raonic is playing for a spot in the quarters of the Aus Open quite amazing.

06-26-2011, 08:38 AM
Anyone know if he still playing he was a very handy player.

06-26-2011, 10:37 AM
Feeney had another injury earlier this year but then played in doubles with Ebelthite in some Futures tournaments in Europe. He had to withdraw from a Futures tournie in Italy with another injury but is now back training. He was in London last week and was hitting with Mitchell and Jonesie in Sutton.
Hopefully back on the tour soon...

01-07-2012, 08:19 AM
Obviously he had a bit of luck today in round 2 but even so he will pick up some good points to lift his ranking. Best of luck tomorrow.

01-07-2012, 10:30 AM
I watched Adam play and defeat Karol Beck (ranked 101 in the world with career earnings in excess of 1.7 million). No words really. Adam was awesome and injured calf to boot. Great work and fantastic tennis too.

01-08-2012, 05:36 PM

01-29-2012, 04:24 AM
Really happy to see Adam get through here. No main draw player will be keen to play him as he is in really ominous form. Go Ads! Keep up your great efforts.

Adam is in amazing form. He was playing so beautifully in Sydney and I am so happy to see this form continue.

01-31-2012, 01:56 PM
someone test him jk

01-31-2012, 08:02 PM
Saw Feeney play at Manly and then at Homebush and he is in good form. I thought he could match Klaasen but that scoreline is very good. Go Feens

02-01-2012, 05:21 AM
He went down in Millman to 3 sets.

10-07-2012, 05:24 AM
and Adam wins it in a tight three set battle over Alex Bolt. Well done and richly deserved!

10-07-2012, 12:32 PM
Formney on a tear.

10-07-2012, 08:38 PM
Well done Adam. The resurgence continues.

10-13-2012, 07:21 AM
The tear is turning into shreds. Feeney into his 4th straight final and looks likely to win back-to-back Futures titles versus Venus tomorrow.

SF: (6) Adam Feeney (NSW) d (1) Ben Mitchell (QLD) 6-4 3-6 6-0 Margaret River Tennis International.

10-13-2012, 08:13 AM
amazing work from an amazing bloke. He deserves all the success after all the injuries and disappointments. It would be lovely to see him get a wild card after all this as I think he deserves it and he is probably the form player of the Australian satellite tour atm. So happy for Adam.

10-13-2012, 09:19 AM
#290 in the year to date rankings and #274 odd if he wins (after all Futures points go on). So an AO wild card chance at this stage.

10-13-2012, 12:34 PM
Wow impressive stuff. Take out the tittle Hopfully more points in Bendigo and Tragalon aswell.

10-14-2012, 08:42 AM

Good to see Feens back, will be interesting to see how he progresses and how his body holds up.
Go Adam

07-09-2013, 03:43 AM
Feeney has gone down in first round qualifying to Adrien Bossel for Newport ATP250

07-23-2013, 11:21 PM
Not a good day for Adam at lexington in the first round. After winning the first set, he gets to 5-5 in the second set and then drop 8 games in a row to lose 5-7, 0-6. Against Bolzoljac I think.

He will also miss out on the US Open qualies cut.

07-24-2013, 04:42 AM
Spoke to Adam, said he is hitting the ball terribly!
