From the Sunday Morning Herald

Todd Reid whispered to himself: "What the hell is going on?" The fans yelled: "Go Toddy, go Toddy." Reid looked up to the stands, saw Australian Davis Cup coach Wally Masur and thought: "How you gonna play Davis Cup one day if can't come back from here?"

And then the Sydney boy, the Coogee kid, came back from 4-0 down in the third set to claim a gutsy, fist-pumping win over Chile's Nicolas Massu, 7-6 (7-5), 2-6, 6-4 at the adidas International yesterday.

It was Reid's 21st win from his past 23 matches. Over the past month, Reid has moved 71 spots up the rankings, from 243 to 172. Things are going the 19-year-old's way.

"[Massu] is top 20 in the world," Reid said. "To come back from 4-0 in the the third is good against anyone, let alone a top-20 player."

Reid said that at 4-0 down he had felt lost. "Things weren't going well. I'd started off OK in the first and I just lost my way. He was running around balls and hitting a lot of winners. I just lost my way."

At that point, Reid was obviously frustrated, throwing his racquet on the ground, as he had done several times earlier in the match, muttering angry words to himself. The crowd gasped.

"I just had to get my anger out," Reid said. "Sometimes I feel I need to just my anger out. Otherwise, I sort of just lock it up and I don't play as well."

And then somehow - he didn't know how exactly - he got a break and the scoreboard read 4-1.

"I don't know how I broke him, then at 4-1 my legs just kicked in again," Reid said. That's when he spied Masur in the grandstand. "That spurred me on a little bit," he said.

The win was yet another indication of Reid's improving form and he's feeling positive.

"You feel good when you go out on the court," he said. "Just before, you know you've been winning matches, you sort of feel like you can always get yourself into the match no matter what happens . . . you always think you're still in it."

Reid will play the winner of the match between Richard Gasquet and Felix Mantilla scheduled for 11am today.

Mark Philippoussis will make his first appearance in the tournament today, when he plays little-known Spaniard Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo.

On the back courts yesterday, Philippoussis practised under the watchful eye of his father Nick. Philippoussis believes he is not far off his best.

"I tell you what, I'm hitting the ball pretty good in practice," he said. "I had a good practice session today . . . I feel like I'm pretty much hitting the ball as good as I can."

Philippoussis also feels closer to winning a grand slam tournament than ever before.

"The best tennis is ahead of me still. I'm improving as a player every time - I'm still learning. I'm getting physically stronger. I'm still working on my fitness.

"I've got a long way to go, but I'm feeling good on the court."

I love to watch Roger Federer. He's a great player. All he does is sensationnal. Forehand, backhand, everything. Physically speaking, i'd say Todd Reiid, the young Australian (laughing).

He got a WC into Sydney as well losing 6-4 6-4 to the number 7 seed

I read somewhere that he's not making any ranking goals!
His main goal is to stay healthy so he can play some more!
Then his results will hopefully improve

Good luck Todd I hope you do really well this year and break the top 100

According to an article posted in the Lleyton section (see above), Reid is one of the guys playing at the Aussie tennis training camp, which includes a play off for an Aus Open wildcard. Peter Luczak is another and apparently both of them have been practising against Lleyton in Sydney recently. It is good to hear Todd is back on court :)

There are also about 4 discretionary wildcards but these are not allocated until after the play off.

That would be a terrible tragedy if it was true. I rememeber watching him playing the finals of the Manly Seaside championships playing his sister Tara's boyfriend at the time Oscar Johansson. I was sitting next to his Mum who was lovely. She cringed every time he swore. We had a bit of a chat about the stresses and strains placed upon these prodigies and how they have to deal with it at such a young age. She herself used to take away young girls interstate to compete. Interestingly she did not have a good word to say about Jelena Dokic..she used to cheat on the line calls and sledge the other girls behind their backs.

Looks like Todd means business, he knocked off the 13th seed 6-1 6-2. He now plays the number 1 seed Pere Riba-Madrid who is currently ranked 263 in the world. If Todd can beat him its very encouraging and exciting and shows hes still good enough and fit enough. I'll definetly get on the bandwagon if he qualifies.

Come on Reidyyyy.

Didnt have any trouble first round qualies, won it 6-0 6-2. Good to start off with a bagel, He next faces another player without a ranking and then the world number 1208 and then likely the world number 858 and if he wins all those hes into the main draw. I just hope he qualifies and wins a main draw match, I really do.

Looks like this tourney is well behind in matches...maybe it's been raining (or the organisers are still laughing at the quality of the qualifying draw!). Todd may have to play 2 or 3 matches in one day before the main draw even starts! Not ideal for someone coming back from a layoff.

Yes that is true, Todd had to play two matches yestrerday. Luckily he was good enough to win them both in straight sets. Now he faces Juan-Miguel Such-Perez world number 858. I really hope Todd beats him and draws a qualifier in the main draw and can get an ATP ranking finally, then Tennis Australia might start helping him out again.

You really wonder with Todd dont you. If he can win this future he will move the top 1000 straight away and of about 870. If he loses in the final he is just outside the top 1000. Either way he will get direct entry into futures. Can you believe hes won 9 matches in a row against quality players! If he wins Tennis Australia is going to have to help him out. Although winning the future will bring hype and thats probably exactly what he doesnt want. Either way I can see him playing futures in Australia in November/October. I dont want to jump the gun but what if he plays Australian Open next year haha Im so excited about this.

Just remembered There was an article about Todd Reid in the sunday telegraph wierldy enough was random

This might be the article although it was taken from the Sydney Morning Herald.

Forgotten, but not finished
December 7, 2008

Todd Reid's tennis career has never got out of first gear, writes Linda Pearce.

IF Bernard Tomic is the current wonderboy of Australian tennis, then Todd Reid is its forgotten man. Reid won the 2002 Wimbledon junior title and was on the verge of the top 100 in seniors when illness and injury intervened. The glorious career he had planned since accepting a scholarship to Nick Bollettieri's Florida academy at the age of 13 remains painfully unfulfilled.

Last Monday, Reid awoke at his Sydney home nursing a biceps strained during a lowly Futures tournament in Perth. It was just his third event this year, and a ranking below 1000 forced the former Davis Cup player to qualify for the main draw. But, once there, Reid reached the last four, his victims including second seed Marinko Matosevic and - thrillingly and rather poignantly - Tomic, whom he trailed by a set and 0-3 in the second round.

Then, the luck that has deserted Reid for so long again departed, forcing the 24-year-old to forfeit his semi-final against eventual champion Andrew Coelho after just five games. The right arm soreness he had suffered earlier in the tournament flared in the warm-up and it was soon apparent that Reid could not continue. He caught the next flight back east, and also had to withdraw from the season-ending event in Sorrento.

The Sun-Herald spoke briefly to Reid in Perth but follow-up calls to conduct the interview as arranged went unreturned. Tennis Australia confirmed he has entered the 16-man Australian Open wildcard play-off, starting a week tomorrow, but the rankings reality of No. 1020 means that his fate is for tennis director Craig Tiley and others to decide.

Still, however incremental, Reid can be encouraged that he is making progress at last. If we all know that junior success is no guarantee of anything except heightened expectations, his story is not just a cautionary tale for Tomic but a sorry one for a keen tennis talent. While lacking a Philippoussis serve or Rafter net game, Reid was a natural and instinctive player whose future was considered so bright that he was the subject of a 3000-word profile in The New York Times and had reportedly earned $450,000 in sponsorship before his 14th birthday.

Since then, injuries have included patella tendonitis, a sprained ankle and a pre-stress fracture in an arm, while a severe bout of glandular fever has apparently never quite been shaken. Reid peaked at No. 105 just over four years ago, his finest senior moment coming when he vomited his way through the latter stages of a five-set defeat of Sargis Sargsian on Vodafone Arena to reach the 2004 Open's third round.

Even in mid-2005, Reid still hovered just outside the top 200, but in the past three seasons he has played just five events in total and none at all in 2007, when few in Australian tennis knew where he was or what he was doing, puzzled by his apparent disappearance from the sport. He eventually resumed in April this year, promptly reaching a Futures final in Spain.

In Perth, Reid spoke of the need to work on his fitness, in particular, while others acknowledged his undoubted ability to still play the game, although whether that translates to ATP level remains to be seen. There may be a Plan B, however, as the boy who grew up in his parents' Sydney tennis centre is now doing some coaching of his own, having earned less than $2000 in prizemoney in 2008.

How long ago that heady Wimbledon Sunday seems, when Reid's junior triumph was overshadowed only by Lleyton Hewitt's main event win. More than six years on, Hewitt's decorated career hobbles into its twilight, while the challenge for his one-time understudy is to stay healthy long enough to prove that forgotten does not necessarily mean finished.

WHEN Todd Reid, gun junior, was plucked from all the world's gun juniors to train at Nick Bollettieri's famed academy in Florida, the master plan had nothing to do with serving underarm on the quiet of court three. When he won a low-key tournament called the Manly Seaside as a 16-year-old, the quiet of court three could go hang.

When he won junior Wimbledon to join an honour board boasting Stefan Edberg, Pat Cash, Ivan Lendl and Bjorn Borg, the world opening up for him, all those brilliant possibilities, the quiet of court three was a million miles away. But then came twists and turns and illness and injuries and at 8am on Boxing Day, there it was, the mystifying sight of Reid serving underarm back where it all began - the quiet of court three.

"I just want to compete again," he says."I miss that."

Reid had an injured bicep. Enough reason to give the Manly Seaside a miss. But he got through his first round serving underarm and the swagger a person gets from an intimate knowledge of their surroundings.

He also had the look of a person who has achieved a fair bit but suspects the best might be yet to come if he keeps fighting. He's out of place here; a man past his time. He won the humble Manly Seaside eight years ago as a 16-year-old getting started. Now he's a 24-year-old getting started all over again.

"Yeah, serving underarm," he says. "It's a bit embarrassing, but I just want to play."

Reid's first-round match on the quiet of court three attracted five spectators. His wallet and mobile phone were on his chair like it was Saturday afternoon social comp. He chased his own balls between points. Called his own lines. One of the five spectators was asked for the score. She had no idea because she was watching her 14-year-old son play over on court four.

Reid kept walking up to the service line, tossing the ball shoulder-high and whipping a forehand into the service court to start the points. He won 6-0, 6-0 by belting winners from both wings.

He claimed the junior Wimbledon crown the year Lleyton Hewitt won the seniors and you do not lose that. Reid has game. He reached a career-high of 105 in 2004 with enough bullets to start a war and a rise into the top 50 seemed inevitable, but then he had to go to sleep. For three years.

Reid contracted glandular fever in May 2005 and only now is he mounting a full-scale comeback.

"The main thing for me this year is staying injury-free, I guess, just staying healthy," he says.

"I'll just take it day by day. I just really enjoy playing and competing, that's all it really is. I was just unlucky when I got sick, really unlucky. I was playing some really good tennis and then got hit with glandular and - bad luck, that's all it was.

I feel fine now, I feel really good. Sometimes I've had relapses, probably yearly, like, I can't get out of bed for a month. But it's all good. When it happened it wasn't like I thought, 'What a bad time for this to happen.' I guess now if I look back, maybe it was a good opportunity that was missed, but I'm still only 24 so I feel like there's a bit of time left."

What on Earth is Reid doing on the quiet of court three? He's played Wimbledon, the French Open and Davis Cup. His epic five-set victory against Sargis Sargsian on a packed Vodafone Arena at the 2004 Australian Open was the kind of lion-hearted triumph that has not been forgotten by those who saw it.

Already that summer he had made the quarter-finals of ATP events in Adelaide and Sydney. But then came the glandular fever and a cruel run of injuries every time he tried to venture back: patella tendonitis, a sprained ankle, a pre-stress fracture in his right arm.

"I wanted to come back again in April," Reid says.

"I went away to Spain and got to play two tournaments. But I hurt my arm there and had to have three months off. I didn't play another tournament again until October this year, and then my fourth tournament for the year was in early December. It's been really stop-start but I just want to get into a full year without injuries. I really don't know what will come after this - there are Futures and Challengers tournaments in Australia in February, so I'll probably play them. Then all next year I'll just keep trying to get the ranking up. Should be fun - I'm starting from scratch."

Reid played a Futures event in Perth this month. Ranked below 1000, he had to pre-qualify. He did so and then romped into the semi-finals. Onwards and upwards. His charge included a gruelling three-set victory against Australian tennis's wonderkid, Bernard Tomic. It was a fearsome battle.

The Futures tour is a dog-eat-dog-and-rip-out-its-throat kind of scene, everyone scraping and clawing to reach the main tour.

His ranking is now 863. He returned from his Perth slog-fest with the biceps strain that left him serving underarm for the enjoyment of five spectators.

"A match is a match, really," he says. "Doesn't matter what court it is. I've just got to try to get the win."

Reid grabbed his wallet and mobile phone and left the quiet of court three.

Later in the day he would play again in front of a crowd swelling to at least a dozen people. He started serving over-arm again.

He was following some distinguished footsteps that lead to the cathedrals of Melbourne Park, Wimbledon and Roland Garros. The footsteps are his own.

Now into the semis after a straight sets win over Kelly and faces a tough encounter against Jamie Baker for a spot in the final. Great for him and is probably a reminder that although he won't scale the heights he was once predicted to get to, he is still a decent player. It will be interesting if he keeps playing in this sort of form to see if Tennis Australia will give him a spot in the Wildcard Playoff unlike last year or a Wildcard into Sydney or Australian Open qualifying draws.

Timbo
10-19-2009, 10:50 AM
There's no doubt Todd is talented and it's good to see him back, but I'd be very surprised if he gets a wildcard into anything unless he wins a Futures or two between now and January and plays more than just the odd sporadic tournament. I think TA would have understandable doubts over his fitness considering he has retired in all four tournaments he has played this year. There'd be little point giving a qualifying WC to someone who would be unlikely to finish a five set match.

jmf07
10-21-2009, 04:07 AM
Yeah he definitely does need to play well on the futures regularly to make a case. His match against Millman was reported to have lasted for four hours and he was able to come out the next day and beat Dayne Kelly in straight sets so in terms of a five set match he probably has as much of a hope of lasting it out as many of the other Aussies. I highly doubt though that he or any of the other aussies in the qualifying draw would progress to the main draw though.

scotthongkong
