I'm really encouraged by this. Often in the past we've heard of British players getting 'homesick' on tour so it's good to know she wants to break free of the domestic scene.
The coaches in the US will hopefully toughen her up a bit and being No.1 Brit will mean zero
over there so she won't have all the pressure of being asked, "when's she going to win Wimbledon?" by every dumb-arsed journalist that crosses her path.
I wonder whether this is a David Felgate/LTA initiative or if she has found some private funding. If it is sponsored by the LTA, then that is progress. Hopefully they can send some younger elite players abroad for coaching too!
Man, proud man, drest in a little brief authority, most ignorant of what he’s most assured,
his glassy essence, like an angry ape, plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven,
as makes the angels weep.
