A friend of mine plays tennis at Lindsay's club and is friends with Robert Van't Hoft. Robert told him that he isn't going to Australia and won't be traveling with Lindsay this year. I'm not sure if he will still be a consultant or anything, but I guess he needs to be at home with his family. Doesn't sound like any falling out or anything, just a matter of priorities.
The other tidbit is that it looks like Southern California is getting a World Team Tennis "franchise" this year. I guess they used to have the "Dukes" (Orange County is John Wayne country). Don't know what the name will be, but the owner of the Palisades Club is buying the team.

Oh no! I don't like this news .. you need a coach present to point out little things that are going awry ...

She can't make him go but i'm sure she doesn't wanna break up with Robert either.

He has a couple of teenagers at home, so I would think he wants to be home more. I hear his 16-year-old son is a pretty good player. Don't know if he's going to try and go pro or not. His name is Chase or Cole or something like that, lol.
