Baylor Names New Assistant; Sweeting to Train at Saddlebrook

Matt Knoll at Baylor has hired an assistant to replace Sam Winterbotham, who left Waco after just a few months to take the Tennessee head coaching job. This article by Kim Gorum, who does a great job on the Baylor tennis beat, gives the details of Kyle Spencer's hiring.

There's also a story in today's Waco Tribune about Baylor alum Benjamin Becker, who lost in the final of the Challenger in the Ukraine to Dmitry Tursunov. The last paragragh contains the interesting tidbit that Becker is tied with Misha Zverev for the second most wins in men's tennis behind (way behind) Roger Federer.

There's was a small item in Charlie Bricker's column Friday about Sweeting turning pro and training at Saddlebrook part time. There hasn't been anything official from Florida's SID about Sweeting, and there may not be at this point.
