    I`m pretty sure that there IS a retirement fund for ATP players. Something like 3% of their gross prize money earnings, IIRC.

    What happened to Tipsarevic was that he won the Chennai Open. It’s a bleeding curse. No one who wins that tournament flourishes. No seriously, look at the list of past champions. I think even the Delray Beach trophy has a similar curse.

    Juan Jose,
    I had to bust out laughing at the 30 for 30 reference on Young. Can not wait to see it on ESPN. By the way, are you going to mention it to them?

    how do the players who don’t get to play bc the “injured” players seeded higher than them keep playing just to lose in the 1st round w/o much effort?

    you wait. there is totally going to be a “30 for 30” on donald young in like 10 years if it’s still around. it’ll be like that one on the oklahoma football player that was the best rb only to not make it in the nfl. (can’t remember then name of that one off the top of my head.)

    the thing that gives me hope with taylor is that she’s not still coached by the youngs. now, while i don’t trust the usta coaching as far as i can throw them, at least her and her mother realize that she needs more/different coaching to improve her game. that’s a hell of a lot of something. btw, not working with rinaldi anymore. was during that whole us open fiasco last summer, but changed coaches after the season. wish i could tell you a name but all i remember is male and part of the usta. it was in someone’s article after her first round win.

      Marcus DuPree was the running back name who played in the USFL for New Orleans. At the time, I thought he made a mistake in leaving Oklahoma. However, I was glad to see that he is working and his brother got married despite having issues while as a child.
