Re: irish tennis

Irish Times article, interviewing some people involved in Tennis Ireland. It's pretty interesting, and they all seem reasonably optimistic about the future. I think Garry Cahill's "targets" are a little behind, though, such as expecting girls to reach the ITF U18 top 100 by the time they're 18 - realistically if they are to be a top 100 player by that time they should have left the U18 circuit behind. Honestly, my biggest hope is that Tennis Ireland has some incentive scheme in place to stop talented young players from heading off to the US college circuit as soon as they finish the LC.
