Yeah I remember reading about him a couple years ago. I always wondered what happened. He sounds an awful lot like Michelle Wie. I guess there's only one Tiger:)
Pretty sad....hey wasn't there a black kid in Paris that also was supposed to be tearing it up by now too?
Yeah I think that is Monfils.
monfils is actually doing a lot better than donald. he's ranked higher and he just beat roddick in the rome masters.
i read alot about donald a few years ago too. he was taking a lot of heat for playing in tour events that he wasn't ready for. i never could understand why he would rather get pasted 6-0 6-2 instead of maybe winning a lower-tier event. until now. it was about the money.
one of my biggest gripes about tennis is that it is too damn expensive to be really good. i'm not talking about being andre agassi and being sent to some tennis academy. i'm talking about being a technically sound player in our own neighborhoods. tennis lessons are astronomical. it's an elitist sport when it doesn't have to be.
Funny side story....my mom put my sister and I in tennis camp when I was 11. It was a no frills, no thrills set up at the local club in our neighborhood. We were in class for all of 2 days when we were suddenly pulled out. I learned later that it was a money issue and no way she was spending that loot for just 2 weeks. The only thing I got to do was volley over the net :-). And that's my tennis history (drum roll please)......
