unfortunatley, i agree. Can't believe her dad said he thinks she still has 7 good years left. There won't be anything left to her shoulder if she plays that long!
Julius was just saying that to win brownie points. Besides, Julius has a bunch of other kids, and a good chunk of his money goes to his ex-wife every month (two outside kids and a sex tape will do that to a guy), so he probably won't be able to give Alex the financial help she's asking him for.

He's already making sure, through his contacts, that she has sufficient funds to fly to Australia for January's Australian Open qualifying, and even though he can't be there, he hopes to be courtside at this summer's U.S. Open. He used to be the talk of Rucker Park; why not Flushing Meadow?
She's on the entry list for Thailand ( Feb 9-15 ).
I think now that she and her dad are building a relationship her tennis results will improve. But I certainly don't see her playing for 7 more years unfortunately. He was obviously saying that to get in her good graces.
