Especially when one is a great junior, and the expectations are so great.
This is why you have to worry every time TA say they have found the next big thing.
What exactly did Nick do wrong? He seems to just go about his business and tries to improve as a player. Why was he rejected by TA at such an early stage of his developement?

GOOD QUESTION AUDACITY

Who knows why TA reject SO SO SO MANY players in the development stage, all I know is there's little good news about Men in the Aus game these days.

TA are player management and they are the ones with the big bucks so they can choose to do what they like with players and criteria's.

You could only say that TA reap what they sew.

Cristalmeister posted an interview in the other thread from Nick in the Davis Cup pre camp for Sweden but Nick's been battling a few injures and has been sick. The Swedes have gone with Toad and Pim Pim as their singles players but I'm guessing it's still a great experience for Nick despite how cold it has been.

Just looking over the Aussie rankings and Nick is back with the AUS next to his name! I guess he is back, good move in my opinion.

I can now see why so many kids are attracted to footy codes, it has room for the good and bad boys, crickets the same, soccer has its red cards red cards,
plenty of golfers have had their problems, as so every sport..

I mean we are talking about humans here . with warts and all , frailties and individual personalities.

Sport after all is entertainment, it is theatre, I certainly found tennis way more interesting in the days of Safin, McEnroe, Conners, Goran, and the many more you could list, if those players want to behave like that then so be it, it is their choice how they behave after all.
Those players actually had a massive fan base.
Some of us actually found it funny to watch a good dummy spit, its part of the pressure game , thats it.

But to stop our own players from playing certain events, or by making it so unbearable by labeling them constantly till they feel they have to leave the country really makes the sport itself and those running it the looser.

It is unpredictability of the human being that is as exciting as the sport itself.

If you ask me TA has gone mad with over policing and its policy's.

You now need to be a certain age , with results by a certain stage, go to the coach they want you to have, and all behave the same way, to get any help from TA.

wow....... it is really scary stuff they are putting in place. You have to wonder what they will come up with next. To unearth the next big thing at 14.
I don't think the behaviour is particularly relevant at all. Tomic has not been a model professional in his junior career, yet had plenty of support.

It's got nothing to do with behaviour, it's got to do with whether you are good enough. Lindahl is potentially a top 100 player, but probably not too much more. Tomic is a potential grand slam winner. Of course the resources should be going more heavily into Tomic.

In order to produce grand slam contending players, you need to pour as much resources as you can into a player as early in their career as you can. For example I'd rather TA pour most of their resources into a super promising 15-16 year old, than split it more evenly between that player and reasonably talented 19-20 year old. You will probably end up with two pretty good top 100 level players, rather than having one a top 10 level player and one maybe dropping off the radar. It's unfortunate, but the latter is preferable IMO.

Is he Australian again? Would have been great for him to play Davis Cup alongside a great player like Robin Soderling.
