I heard somewhere that he is afraid of flying and doesn't like to travel overseas....don't know if that is true or not but it would be an explanation.
Yep that's correct. He prefers to travel to places he can by car. He made it to the Australian Open this year though so he must make some special efforts. :shrug:Caitlin said:I heard somewhere that he is afraid of flying and doesn't like to travel overseas....don't know if that is true or not but it would be an explanation.

Football is not really an international sport though, 90% of matches are in england. Where as tennis the player is travelling to different countries everywhere. A football player is able to get away it much more than a tennis player (unless they only play futures in their own country).delsa said:Denis Bergkamp of Arsenal F.C. has the same problem and he had a fantastic career!

He wasn't ranked high enough to gain direct entry to the U.S. Open: he was the tenth alternate & only two alternates got in. His ranking would have gotten him directly into the qualifying entry list & draw, but he didn't enter.Grinder said:Jerome Haehnel reached his career high ranking this year at 79 and he was ranked high enough to make the direct entry cut for the US Open and he opts to play a challenger instead.
