That's great news about JWT. I love Jo, I think he's delightful. I wonder if he'll make the WTF this year. I'd love him to, but I'm not sure.
I really like him too and just hope that his knee doesn't give him any more trouble.


Marin Cilic has been banned for nine months for doping violations

http://www.itftennis.com/antidoping/news/decisions/decision-in-the-case-of-marin-cilic.aspx
And Viktor Troicki has been banned for 18 months, until 24 Jan 2015, for failing to provide a blood sample.  However, "the tribunal accepted that the stress that Mr Troicki was under at the time entitled him to mitigation."   So his claim that he was feeling 'unwell' has let him off the hook as far as a longer ban goes?  That sounds unduly lenient to me given that people who are ill in hospital have blood samples taken regardless.  Also, having had umpteen blood samples taken myself, then, unless a person has a phobia about needles, I don't see what the problem is with having such a simple procedure carried out.

Presumably both these players will have a right to appeal against these decisions?

I think any of us could have a job like that. The knowledge on tennis from everyone here is of a high quality.
Apart from the fact you need something more than knowledge, you need talent and Nigel has that. I suspect he's right that doing this so late in his career really didn't help.

Surprised I haven't seen any posts on here about this. The Thomas Drouet diaries (Tomic's former hitting partner)

Apologies if I've missed them. Feel free to delete. Tomic senior has since reacted calling Drouet a liar.

Michael Downey appointed LTA Chief Executive

The Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) has appointed Michael Downey as its new Chief Executive.

Michael has been President and CEO of Tennis Canada for the past 9 years, during which time the sport has enjoyed significant growth, both at grassroots and at the elite level. More than 1.2 million people play tennis at least twice a month in Canada, and this year, Canada reached the semi-finals of the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas.

Prior to Tennis Canada, Michael held a series of executive positions including regional president for Canada's largest brewery, Molson Canada.

Michael said of his appointment: “This is a huge privilege for me, at a fantastic time for British tennis. We have a tremendous opportunity in front of us, and it is an honour to be able to lead the work of the LTA in getting more people playing tennis.”

Michael will start on January 6th 2014 and will relocate to the UK with his fiancée, Jinder.

LTA Chairman, David Gregson, welcomed the appointment: “We set out to recruit a CEO with true success in business, with exceptional leadership credentials and ideally with significant knowledge of tennis. Michael demonstrably fits the bill perfectly and was the unanimous choice of our recruitment panel.”

Michael will replace Roger Draper, who leaves the LTA at the end of this month after more than seven years.  During the interim period, the LTA’s Chief Operating Officer, Nick Humby, will lead the Executive.
