Now we know about men's Brittsh Tennis wee lassie.
We how know why we have only got one tennis player in the top hundred
the ones below hundred get to much sponsership and don't put the hours in pratcising and training to busy night clubbing. Andy Murray as fought hard train hard to get where he is so why don't the other Brittish players take a leaf out of Andy's book and train a bit harder and maybe maybe they will successed but not until they work as hard as the rest of top the tennis players
says, please don't think that all British players are the same as Dan Evans and his two mates. Whilst Andy has constantly criticsed their generally apathetic attitude, there are a few who are dedicated to the sport, have worked hard and have had a fair degree of success. I'm thinking here mainly of Colin Fleming and Ken Skupski, our top doubles' players, and Jamie Baker, who seems to be fighting back very well after being out for 18 months due to a life-threatening illness. Admittedly those three are older and more mature than stupid Evans, whose "bad boy" reputation is already well known, and the LTA suspended his funding two years ago when he was caught on a night out whilst competing at Wimbledon. Also Alex Ward is a very promising, hard-working young player.
Britain cannot produce world class players like Tim Henman or Andy Murray out of a hat. It helps considerably if an abundance of natural talent is there in the first place, but it does need to be boosted by total commitment, and that means sacrificing an awful lot of things. Andy has very high expectations of himself, and it would be unrealistic to expect every player to feel as driven by ambition as he is, but the harsh fact is that many countries, including some of the poorer ones, have sufficient players ranked below 100 who are capable of backing up their country's top players. Why can't we do the same? The answer is, that until the LTA takes a good look at itself and gets the message across that tennis is not an elitist sport by providing playing and coaching facilities which are accessible to everyone, British tennis will, sadly, remain as dead as it's always been.
