    Bravo! Nice job, Robin. I can also understand your desire to bridge the old Swedish tennis generation with something new–while you’re alone in the middle.
    My old country, the US, has some problems bringing up new talent.
    And here in Japan (16 years), there’s a few problems: kids play soft tennis from Junior High School and most courts are omni or dirt. Training is drill-focused. If every practice drill had a competitive aspect to it (point system), kids here and in the US would be more confident and competitive. I don’t know how it works in Sweden, but it might also be non-competitive practice drills…and the fact that indoor courts are required much of the year makes it difficult. Does it cost a lot for one hour of indoor tennis in Sweden? Boston was about $35/hour. Here in Japan, there are few indoor courts. Outdoor runs about 4 to $6/hour, but there are very few, free public courts…

  2. Chad in Japan says:

    BTW: competitive drills would be something like my partner would serve until I get five points driving the return down the line into his backhand. Top-spin practice would be games in within the service box lines, and volleying would be the same (no bounce). If kids can learn to be competitive in practice–it might be easier to transfer it to real games. We’re all brilliant in practice, but the lack of drill competitiveness makes most amateur players choke in real games…

    Totally off topic (as usual), here…but are you planning on playing Shanghai this year? Will be booking tickets today and hope to see you, Dolgopolov and Nadal or Federer play in the early rounds. My first ATP experience (I’ll behave myself :) ).
    Best of luck at the USO! This Summer is brutally hot, so I hope the time off gives you and edge.

    USO: Rock It! Robin. Good luck—hard court in the Summer sun isn’t your thing. Lots of loud New Yorkers (I’m from Boston) and planes flying overhead from La Guardia. So, make the best of it. And for goodness sakes, get back to the court before breaks end, screw with your opponent’s head and GET to the net after the first serve…put it away with your 194 cm frame! There’s no reason (except for your howitzer serve/forehand) to hang-out on the baseline. Watch your old videos on YouTube. Where did you excel? Serve…and…volley. I expect nothing less than watching a USO champion in Shanghai. :) Kidding, of course. But watch Sampras’ old serve n’ volley…first serve…he went to the net every time whether it was in or not. Good luck!
