Re: Can Jan-Mike get back to where he was?

Probably from my messageboard. I had a picture and the listing info posted for one day. The house is still being finished and he still plans to move into it. He doesn't have to sell it if he doesn't get a decent offer.

Re: Can Jan-Mike get back to where he was?

Don't know exactly, but he did tell me he uses heat for them. He had a good break last year, went to Hawaii in November and did not play much while he was there. I think there is something else going on in his shins, but again, that's just my own speculation. We haven't discussed it as much as I would like to.

Fee, do you know what JMG does for his shin splints? Deep tissue massage and heat are supposed to be good.

Tennis unfortunately has no off season, maybe he needs an extended break to rejuvenate.

Re: Can Jan-Mike get back to where he was?

Hmm, I thought this thread had died...

Okay, to answer the question seriously, JMG was once #14 in the world. Can he get back there? No (which kind of hurts me to say because I adore him in many ways, but...). He will be 28 in June and he is running out of time. My best hope for him is to get back into the Top 100 or even the Top 50, get his confidence back and become a dangerous floater, a guy who can make the quarters, semi's, even a final or two, and finish his career with dignity. I'd also like for him to win a match on clay before he finishes, but I don't know if he truly believes that he can.

Yes, he is still dealing with this damn leg pain, and that's been going on for just over 2 years now. It seems like it comes back at the worst possible times for him and it affects his ability to move his feet. I think it is one of the things affecting his confidence, but that's just speculation on my part. He does still live at home, but its a huge house, and he is in the process of building his own (which is also pretty big). He was considering moving into his new house earlier this year, while they put the finishing touches on it, but I think he may have given up on that idea and decided to wait until its completely done. We'll see how he does at his next tournament, the Tunica Challenger, on May 2nd.

Overall, combine all societies and cultures in the world, and living with your parents at 25 is not uncommon at all. It's no big deal.

Re: Can Jan-Mike get back to where he was?

Is JM healthy or still hurting from shin splints? He can't seem to stop the downward spiral.

Does he still live at home with his parents?

But no, he seems very loyal to his family and dad. He still lives with his parents at 25 which is a rarity now on days.


Becca, I agre with you 100%, he's way too inconsistent to be a top player, but god enough to make a good showing now and then.

He is working with a new coach now and his dad also.
Some people think he is a "kournikova." One thing they both share is frequent injuries...
