The kid has game, has ticker, needs good governance and Rae will be good for him.
Hope Nick and Rae both have some influence over TA's scheduling, which has been utterly hopeless for some players.
They are in the General Messages thread I started, but it's part and parcel of Nick succeeding. One of them was about Nick's grunts, personally I like that aspect of his on court demeanor as he grunts at the same times I do on court. That is, on important points when you need to concentrate even more. He also grunts to assert himself, like when he ripped that forehand inside in winner on game point to get on the board in the first set.
Nick gets to rest up now and use his main draw experience in the junior comp next week.
