If the USTA has no problem welcoming defecting players they should not complain if the traffic flows in the other direction!

I can understand why they'd be pissed if they funded and played him @ DC ties THEN HE DEFECTED but at 28, he's never played at senior level in the Davis Cup....Courier has gone on the record to say: "He hasn't factored into my thoughts for what our team is and will be ...I don't really see a scenario where he would be playing for the United States."

They're affectively saying we don't want to use you but we paid for the right that no one can either!

Guess the USTA has to pay for that roof on Arthur Ashe somehow, even though it's the worst kept secret in tennis that they just sit on millions upon millions of dollars

Also, we're talking about a six-figure lawsuit here considering that he did get free USTA coaching for several years and a couple of main draw wild cards into the US Open. It's disgusting that they're trying to clean this guy out over taking an opportunity (Davis Cup/Olympics) that they were never going to give him in the first place.
Is it true ? do you have source of that info ?

With this story though, how likely would it be that say I dunno, Ryan Harrison were to change countries now? (assuming he could).

The US has recently lost Carsten Ball, Amer Delic and now Alex Bogolomov. Something has to be done to keep players in the US that are currently representing the US.

Imagine if players were leaving Moldova and Serbia to become US players, the outrage would be huge.

Shortly after his son, Maddox, now 20 months old, was born, Bogomolov Jr. needed to pay off his American Express bill of about $40,000. Despite the hefty debt, he decided to hire a coach, Yoav Schab.

"You don't really make enough money for a family, to pay rent and cover expenses, on the Challenger circuit, so we just kept on swiping the AmEx," Bogomolov Jr. said. "We had some cash set aside for tennis, and so we took a big step and big risk and I hired Schabby. It was a very tough decision for Luana and I. Imagine, we have a kid, and now I'm telling Luana I need a coach."

It worked out. Bogomolov Jr. pocketed, yes, $40,000 at the Kennedy Funding Invitational Tennis Tournament in New York in July 2010 by downing fellow U.S. veteran Michael Russell, escaping from a 4-1 deficit in the third set of the final. The bill was history and Bogomolov Jr.'s ascent could truly begin.

"The fact that he was able to win that exact amount -- everything seemed to fall in place," said Goncalves, who has gone from knowing little about tennis to becoming an aficionado. "It was really emotional. To see my family and his family and friends all being there to watch that, it was a great start for the team."

What needs to be done is the USTA needs to remove their heads from their asses. They've been the laughingstock of the tennis world for years now.

In my opinion, who cares if the USA loses a bunch of players, they already have enough good players.

This would really really be unfair to Bogomolov who had a miracle year this year. Give the guy a break he deserves it.

Default Re: USTA: Bogomolov Must Repay Us, Exploring Options

When a national governing body decides to fund a player, is it written somewhere (in a contract, maybe) that they are to repay the governing body when they start earning enough money on their own? If not, then the money given to Bogomolov was NOT a loan, but rather a privilege that was extended to him for being a potentially elite player. If it was seen as an investment, then maybe they can call for a repayment, but without a legally binding written contract, Bogomolov is free to do as he pleases.

"I certainly believe… I have no issue with Alex personally. From the USTA standpoint, he was born in Russia, he has family there, he should repay the USTA. He's actually signed something saying that and we'll see what happens."

I followed up asking if the USTA is continuing to explore options and McEnroe said, "that is correct." http://ca.sports.yahoo.com/tennis/ne...g=ycn-10742013

The USTA has billed the Russian Tennis Federation $75,000 for poaching Alex Bogomolov Jr.

I guess it all depends on the contract Bogomolov signed with the USTA. It would be grossly unfair, of course. It makes the USTA look really petty, as if it didn't have enough image problems already.

Yeah but if he signed it when he was broke and it was the only way he can get some funding to continue...
