Re: irish tennis

apparently so, its a world class forehand. keep fingers and toes crossed that she will make the top 100 someday.

both amy bowtell and sinead lohan are crying out for sponsors, they are depending on their families at present financially. hope they will get sponsors soon

Re: irish tennis

Need somehow to get tennis more noticed here. Only way is if someone like Amy or Sinead make a bit of a breakthru. But without sponsors its so tough. For now vote for Amy here: 2012 European Union PYW Championships | Congrats Minella(x2) and Kremer!

Even getting her thru this game can't do any harm. Get the name out there a bit more.

Cirstea Kirilenko Goerges Ivanovic Cibulkova Petkovic
Paszek - Vesnina - Minella - Gajdosova - Robson - Pennetta

Re: irish tennis

Can't we just buy Sirotkina if she still training here. An Irish passport would be much easier for her travel wise If Pervak, Shvedova, Putinseva and Voskoboeva could switch to KAZ surely we could get Marta, she would also get the high performance funding and unlike some of our below average athletes might deserve it.

Also it would be easier to build Irish tennis with a ready made Top 150 player than to actually try and make one from scratch with such little support for tennis.

Re: irish tennis

I think it would be better to have a homegrown player who actually wants to play for us!

Poor Amy had a bad loss this week. Lost from a set and 5-1 and 0-40 with 3 match points. Hope she can bounce back from this and move on from here.

James Mcgee looks like his ranking is going in the right direction though!

Re: irish tennis

That'll take at least a decade. Two problems

A. Getting the Top player
B. Getting the media to give said top player attention, Katie Taylor was winning World Champs year after year and only in 2012 did the Irish media actually give her a justifiable level of attention.

My plan has flaws too At the Olympics Ireland's second most decorated athlete pre-games was Andrzej Jezierski a former Pole. He got virtually ZERO press attention whereas every slow-ass runner was analysed to death I never know what is more embarrassing the track and field team or the swim team.

Show's RTÉ priorities.
