Re: General Aussie Tennis News

Molik wedged herself nicely in the top 200 after Rd1 wins in Hobart and BrizVegas. I agree though, it's a shame there wasn't more upwards movement but I'm still enjoying having eight women in the Top 200 (seven in the Top150) and one on the verge of Top10 - we've seen worse times, that's for sure.

Re: General Aussie Tennis News

Really? I mean I guess if you're a huge fan of him then it'd be exciting for sure.

But it looks like he's just about done. Well, it looked that way about 3 years ago. I don't really see him doing anything that's going to bring him satisfaction. But hey, you can't knock someone for giving it a go, so good luck to him.

Re: General Aussie Tennis News

Anybody who saw him play in that Champions Tour thing realise he will probably get smashed, still very curious to see what happens though.

Re: General Aussie Tennis News

Yani d. Philippoussis 6/4 6/4

Pretty disappointing result, a break a set. Atleast he lasted the match.

Re: General Aussie Tennis News

The list of players in the AIS this year has been released. 12 boys and only 4 girls
Moore, Peers, Holland and Wejnert were selected. I can't beleive how uneven the numbers are, players like Mirkovic, Sumner and Rajicic have been left out in favour of 16 and 17 year old boys who have never played in the MD of a senior ITF.

Re: General Aussie Tennis News

Agreed Jack!

TA knows Hewitt is going to retire within the next 3 years so they're desperately trying to create a replacement.

Of course they are putting alot into Tomic but they obviously are focusing on other guys as well in case he doesn't turn into a Hewitt.

Re: General Aussie Tennis News

Tomic wouldnt touch the AIS with a ten foot pole and i wouldnt blame him!!

Mirkovic needs to produce the results this year, she has the game for it...

Only suprise really was to not see Rajicic on the list....

Goodness, I'm not being a smartarse. The way you made that statement made it seem like there are no Australian boys showing promise. Just thought you might have made an oversight and forgotten about him. Why do you need to overreact so often?!?!

Re: General Aussie Tennis News

Paul McNamee defeated in ballot for Tennis Australia presidency
Leo Schlink From: Herald Sun April 19, 2010 9:51AM 2 comments

Steve Healy of Sydney law firm Gadens Lawyers has won a ballot for the presidency of Tennis Australia. Source: Supplied
SYDNEY lawyer Steve Healy is Tennis Australia's new president after defeating Paul McNamee in a secret ballot this morning.

Healy will take over from Geoff Pollard in October.

A former player, Healy claimed a tight contest after month's of political skirmishing.

The Herald Sun exclusively revealed Healy's candidacy during the Australian Open.

President of Tennis New South Wales, a traditional political powerhouse, Healy laid claim to have the key support fellow presidents and member representatives.

He was recently endorsed by former world No. 1 John Newcombe.

McNamee narrowly lost last October's ballot against former friend and work colleague Pollard.

It is uncertain if McNamee will challenge again in 2013, when the next election will be held.

Healy will now undergo a six-month transition to the presidency.

"My leadership and agenda for change in NSW has encouraged the other States to back me in the forthcoming election," Healy said.

"I made hard decisions to modernise and unite the game, including: "change, broken structures", institute accountability and governance at the board level, and involve coaches in player development and competition programs.

"The states have observed my leadership skills and ability to drive change where it is needed.

"They see that I am a big picture person, who is not divisive, who does not do deals in order to effect change."

Healy said the key to his platform is "the growth of grassroots tennis via people, programs and local area marketing, player development and facilities.

"We need to get coaches and clubs more involved," he said.

"There needs to be more flexibility, inclusiveness and transparency to the business of tennis."

Healy's views on producing Australia's next batch of champions appears to differ from that of director of player development Craig Tiley.

"Player development is a priority," Healy said.

"Our player development program, which is focused on producing top 10 players, needs more flexibility if we are to get results.

"There is no one way to produce a champion. We need the right people available and working with our elite players.

"We need to better transition juniors to senior ranks. We need to utilise ex-players as well as coaches.

"Tennis Australia has a role in player development. Participation, though, is the responsibility of the member associations.

"I believe the member associations need to make tennis inviting, accessible and affordable to people including families.

"To do this, there needs to be more financial and marketing support from Tennis Australia.

"As a past player, an administrator and president of a member association, I have first-hand knowledge, experience, and the credibility to drive change, to unite tennis and move it forward."

Healy last year represented TA at a meeting of Australian greats including John Newcombe, Tony Roche and Pat Rafter.
