Re: Taking time off to try pros club

Thanks Tennisace

Looks like Cako and her doubles partner Riske will try the pros together. Although my guess is both will start playing college tennis in the Spring.


Note: My laptop broke down on Sunday so the number of updates I can post will be minimized in the next few weeks.

Anyone know how to fix an "Operating System Not Found" error for an HP laptop dv9000 series operating on Windows Vista?

Actually, I believe Riske has indeed turned pro. There was some chatter about that in Team USA sub-forum

Ah I meant to say that Riske had turned pro. Also Mallory Cecil has turned pro.

Re: Taking time off to try pros club

Thanks for the scoop Tennisace.

The US Open is a popular tournament for players to turn pro cuz:
Losing in the 1st round of singles main draw pays out $19,000.
Losing in the 1st round of doubles main draw pays out $10,000.

Yeah, just read this about Cecil

http://www.goduke.com/ViewArticle.db...CLID=204782736

I think she probably should have given college tennis at least one more year, but I hope she is successful on the pro circuit

Re: Taking time off to try pros club

Cecil starts $98,000 in the hole... she just gave that up in free education plus housing that she was receiving on full ride.

Let me know when she gets past $100K plus her new expenses

How did you come up with 98k?

The Out of State cost to attend Duke for tuition, fees, room & board is about $49,000 per year. Cecil has 3 years left so that education total is $147,000.

After someone wins the NCAA singles tournament I don't have a problem with them turning pro to pursue their dream. Although not having a degree closes the door in being a future college tennis head coach.

Re: Taking time off to try pros club

Thought she was a junior.. my bad

Gotta disagree with you... making $147,000 plus her living expenses now so call it $200K over next 3 years ... take a look and see how many make that?

While you could continue getting education and playing tour in summer, winter holiday...

Bad choice... but we can argue that 3 years from now when we see what her total income is then... and what her future earning power will be after she turns 28 and her career is nearing an end

Melanie Oudin

From the LA Times

Hours after the 17-year-old finished her dramatic run to the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open tennis tournament Wednesday night, Sports Illustrated reported on its website, SI.com, that Oudin's father was divorcing her mother on the grounds that her mother had had an affair with her coach.
