I would have posted yesterday, but could not because my connection was really slow.
So you like Alan Mackin? Great news.
I'd love to see more and more people supporting players from the lower tiers of tennis. The reality of British tennis is not the flash world of Andy, Tim and Greg but that of people like Mackin and Bloomfield. And embracing the reality is the first step to recovery.
I am not especially fond of Mackin, but I will follow his path and will shout my heart out for him as long as he has the three magic letters next to his name.
But let me warn you.... I don't see Alan doing anywhere near what Boggo has done till now. You don't win five Challenger titles without any effort and Mackin is older than him but does not have a Challenger to boast as far as I know. But if Mackin improves miraculously and cracks the top 100, I'll be really really really happy.
Dont let that act as a deterrent, you should not support people just because they have a good chance of being successful.
Mackin is playing in the Nottingham Challenger this week.http://www.murraysworld.com/messageboard/index.php/topic,2812.msg102341.html#new
He'll attempt to qualify for the Lexington Challenger which will be played next week I believe. I think that he'll skip it if he reaches the latter stages of Nottingham but does not get an SE into Lexington. I'll post stuff about what he is doing in Lexington here:http://www.murraysworld.com/messageboard/index.php/topic,855.msg102339/boardseen.html#new
