Today was an even slower day for tennis news than yesterday, with both the US Open qualifying and the Pilot Pen rained out, and no word on the US Open Junior wildcards (although the rumors are flying in the comments).
I did find this interesting article in the Arizona Daily Wildcat about U of A's men's team upcoming season. The subhead "Five-star recruit, former pro turned assistant make for optimistic Arizona tennis squad" got my attention, but I never expected to read Taylor Dent's name in the subsequent paragraphs. (The five-star recruit is Jay Goldman). Perhaps Bryan Roy, the reporter, wasn't aware that he was burying the lead, but this is news I haven't read anywhere else.
Also back during the late stages of Kalamazoo, I had an opportunity to talk with Todd Skovron of Tennis Live Radio about the tournament, (you can hear me pick Nate Schnugg to win just hours before he loses to Ty Trombetta), college tennis, Donald Young's prospects and other topics. Just go to the audio vault section in the lower left corner of the homepage of Tennisliveonline.com.
