Thanks Allan. It seems like a really good system for an up and coming tennis player.

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

Hannah, my 17-y-o daughter, plays in the national collegiate finals at Bath this weekend. Qualified in the mixed.

Just wanted to tell someone...

Hmm, lost 6-1. I think it's three round-robin matches of one set each. Plays two more tomorrow. Said she was stiff from the journey.

I asked where her opponents were from and if they were any good. She said 'Norfolk. And bad.' I said that that makes a change. She didn't get it.

Wasn't quite sure where to put this, but this thread seemed appropriate -

Bob Brett announced as Director of Player Development  [13 June]

Brett will be responsible for overseeing all aspects of high performance, with a view to developing a consistent stream of players who can be competitive at the very highest level. He will work closely with coaches both at the National Tennis Centre in London and across the country’s high performance network.

The 60 year old Australian has worked as a coach on the ATP Tour for 34 years and has established an impressive track record on the international stage, having coached former world no. 1 Boris Becker, Goran Ivanisevic and Marin Cilic.

Speaking about the appointment, LTA Chief Executive Michael Downey said: "I know first-hand from working with him in Canada what an incredible difference he can make to our high performance system. Bob's work ethic and attention to detail is incomparable. I’m so pleased for promising British players of all ages and their coaches who will benefit immensely from his understanding of what it takes to succeed on a global level."

Today Dave Rice made the final of Ilkley, moving him to 101 ranking points for the year-to-date - making him the 8th Briton to surpass the 100 point mark in 2014 (joining Andy, James Ward, Dan Smethurst, Dan Evans, Kyle Edmund, Dan Cox, Oli Golding and Alex Ward).

This time last year only Andy Murray, James Ward and Ed Corrie had surpassed the 100 point mark.
