Big first serve, big second serve, you cannot get away with that today. Also one handed backhand but two handed more beneficial Big first serve, big second serve, you cannot get away with that today. Also one handed backhand but two handed more beneficial Today, injuries tennis is a very physical sport Nadal had to work on everything Extreme grip, push, swipe, jump… injury
Because his grip was a full western grip You’ve got Djokovic now injured, Murray his back is hurt but you have several good youngsters coming up today. In fact, if you begin to look the youngsters today are fantastic. Many years ago in the 70s, 80s and 90s, the top seeds… No. 1, 2, 3, 4 they would have easy two three rounds. Not today. Back in the 80s, Michael Chang 5’9”, Andre Agassi 5’10”, Lleyton Hewitt 5’11”, Pete Sampras 6’1” he was a giant then. Today, the average height for the men in tennis is 6’3”. Ladies 5’9” to 5’11”. The game has changed. Now, it doesn’t mean that the little men or the little ladies do not have a chance, but if you have a big athlete with good athletic ability and a small athlete with same ability, the big athlete will win.

Everybody is also wondering if Serena can play like before. I’ve already given Serena’s baby scholarship in my academy. Because she cannot afford (laughs Kyrgios Kyrgios
He’s my type of guy and let me tell you what I could do with him. I would sit down with him and just listen to him for one hour Not say one thing. Then I would ask him a couple of questions. I am the type who would relate to him. You think Agassi (to coach) was easy? Oh boy! You have certain individuals whom you cannot tell to ‘do this, do that’. ‘What’s the matter with you?’ No, you can’t do that. Boris Becker said, Nick is a genius because I know how to relate to each person. My life story ‘Showtime’ is out now going round the world. It’s called ‘Love Means Zero’. It’s a 90-minute documentary and it’s not easy at some but it tells the type of guy I am. One part of it at the French Open, Andre (Agassi) and Jim Courier are both my students… Courier looks around, sees me in Andre’s box and he starts to cry because I was his coach. The documentary is very truthful and Nick is Nick . I’ve made a lot of mistakes along the way. But remember, I am also crazy and crazy people do things that sane people will never do. Why, because they are afraid of failure. Not me, I’ve built the first live-in tennis academy of the world. And everybody thought it was crazy. You have to be crazy to do what I did. And, now the whole world is copying me.
