Training hard and getting ready to travel to Asia. Also happy to report we have already raised some good money for the Wounded Warrior Project leading up to my charity event November 17-18 in Shreveport, Louisiana. Would love to see you all there and hope you can all help support this worthy cause.

Coming up:

Beijing Q
Shanghai Q


Let's find some game and finish strong!

I just wanted to thank everyone for the kind words and heart felt condolences. My Grandmother was a great lady and I definitely learned a lot from her. She will be missed.

:hug:

Feliciano Lopez (ESP) vs Alejandro Falla (COL)
Pablo Andujar (ESP) vs Grigor Dimitrov (BUL)

Luck isn't an excuse though. If he has been improving (which he hasn't), he should have been able to compete with higher ranked players by now.

Hoping to get wins from easy opponents is not gonna help him at all. You can't expect to compete in a certain level when you can't even beat most of the players in that level.

You're right, he has a lot of work to do this off-season.

sagroove

Yep told u - he lost in straight sets to Kohlschreiber 4 and 4. Even though it was only one break of serve per set - a loss is a loss.

Lets all hope and pray he can get past the first round in the main draw (assuming he qualifies)

Go Ryan! Fight!

Grant Doyle announced that he'll not work with Ryan Harrison in 2013.
Wonder who will be the new couch..

My bet on Larry Stefanki.

Doubt it....would be huge for Ryan but Larry might be out of his pay grade. Something has got to change though, he's not getting better fast enough.

Doesn't Larry Stefanki turn players into pushers? Ryan is already doing a lot of that, he needs someone to make him more aggressive.

Davis Cup (USA vs. Brazil) in Jackson next year. Ryan was mentioned by Captain Jim.

“We were very happy to draw a home match. This could be a great opportunity for players like John (Isner), Sam (Querrey) and Ryan (Harrison) to experience a home court advantage for the first time in their Davis Cup careers.”

Harrison withdrew from Basel. Don't know what going on. End of season?

I hope he hires a quality coach like Brad Gilbert- he needs to learn how to win. SO he withdrew from Basel? Not good - something is going in the Harrison camp - oh well he is blowing a huge opportunity to pick up plus atp points.

Brad Gilbert would be nice.

Larry Stefanki, who coached the recently retired Andy Roddick, is likely to be considered a candidate to coach Harrison, who is extremely close to Roddick and trusts his advice. Harrison may also decide to go back to USTA coaching
