Nice to hear from Xavier, talks about his beginning, Belgian talents, Bollettieri academy Episode 89: Xavier Malisse - The X Man! by Control the Controllables • A podcast on Anchor

Host is Dan Kiernan who had some experience on the tour and faced Xavier in junior year, his accounts of getting destroyed are fun :LOL:

Some bits:
Epic 2002 Wimby
How the ban in 2005 motivated him and led to the 2007 season with the 2 titles (one as LL), win over Nadal eventually coming to an end with the unfortunate injury.
6-0 6-1 over Federer at the European U-16.
Choosing practice vs the likes of Rios/Korda over playing Orange bowl.
87 sets in practice never lost when arrived at the Bollettieri academy.
'if a dog had coached Clijsters she would have made it anyways' :ROFLMAO:
