sp_AddNewsStory 'How Ruud Said ''No'' To Temptation & ''Yes'' To National History','https://www.atptour.com/en/news/ruud-uncovered-feature-april-2020','Growing up, Casper Ruud said ‘no’ to temptation and ‘yes’ to national history. The 2019 Next Gen ATP Finals qualifier earlier this year won the Argentina Open in Buenos Aires to become the first Norwegian to earn an ATP Tour title. He also ascended to No. 34 in the FedEx ATP Rankings in February, the highest standing of anyone in his country’s history. But Ruud’s journey has not come without sacrifices. “When you turn 15, 16, your friends maybe start to party a little bit and you’re maybe tempted to try to go once or twice, but I never did it. I never touched alcohol. Those are choices normal people may think are a bit tough or hard to say no to going out or being with friends,” Ruud told ATP Uncovered presented by Peugeot. “Every weekend in Norway, it’s usual to go to your cabin or summer house or whatever the season is, but every weekend me and my father went out to the courts and played at least six, seven hours. I think those were the kind of choices that made me a step ahead of my competitors, in Norway at least, for some years.” [TENNIS AT HOME] It helped that Ruud had a role model to look up to in his father, Christian Ruud, who reached the second-highest FedEx ATP Ranking of any Norwegian in history: World No. 39. “He was the guy who put Norway on the tennis map a little bit… we had a small tennis court in our garden, so he took me there to play ever since I could walk,” Ruud recalled. “I was really young and I did a bunch of other sports as well, but eventually tennis was the one I enjoyed the most. When I was 12, I put all the other sports aside and focussed only on my tennis.” Although the elder Ruud enjoyed success on the ATP Tour, he knew that didn''t guarantee the same for his son, and he made sure Casper maintained his focus. [TTV CLASSICS] “My father is a very nice and funny guy, but also strict whenever we’re on court, and strict with me always trying to do the right choices and being serious, even from a young age,” Ruud said. “I think it’s paying off a little bit now at least. I’ve taken a lot of choices and decisions that weren’t always as easy, but I had to do it because of my career. “It was tough sometimes to get up on Saturday and Sunday and train for three, four hours… my father also guided me and advised me to do it, I believed in him, and it’s been paying off, and of course I’m very grateful now.” Ruud’s home base since September 2018 has been the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar, so it’s fitting that the 21-year-old looks up to the Spaniard and how he carries himself on court. “I think that I would be happy if people called me humble, a good fighter,” Ruud said. “I look up to Rafa a lot and people know him as very humble and a good fighter. Of course I’m not trying to be just like him, but I’m looking at the stuff that I like with Rafa, I’m looking at the stuff that I like with Federer or Djokovic and of course I’m trying to bring that into my own game.” Ruud cracked the Top 100 of the FedEx ATP Rankings for the first time last March, and now he has put himself in strong position inside the Top 50. But he is focussed on continuing to improve, and not looking back. “It’s the tough thing about tennis: You can be really happy one day, but then the day after is a new match, a new opportunity. You can either lose or win. If you lose, you’ll be disappointed. If you win, you’ll be even more happy,” Ruud said. “[There’s] not too much time to celebrate or take off, either."',54,0,105,'4/3/2020 5:53:00 PM'

sp_AddNewsStory 'The Four Keys To Rios'' Miami Masterpiece Against Agassi','https://www.atptour.com/en/news/rios-agassi-1998-miami-infosys-beyond-the-numbers','Andre Agassi didn’t know what hit him. In their first ever meeting, Marcelo Rios blasted Agassi off the court in the 1998 Miami Masters 1000 final, winning 7-5, 6-3, 6-4. It wasn’t that close. Rios hit more than double the winners (46 to 22), and only faced one break point in the first set, while Agassi totaled 12 for the match. Agassi must have felt like he was playing a left-handed version of himself, as Rios parked himself on the baseline for the afternoon and clubbed groundstroke winners at will from start to finish. Rios ascended to No. 1 in the FedEx ATP Rankings with the stunning victory. 1. Rios’ Forehand The Chilean possesses such fluid, languid technique on his forehand with sublime balance that at first glance it appears he is putting very little effort into the stroke. And then the ball explodes off the strings and you just stand there and watch it go right by you. Rios’ forehand was the star of the show as he crushed 19 forehand groundstroke winners and one forehand return winner. Agassi, by comparison, only managed five forehand groundstroke winners and two forehand return winners. This 20-7 mismatch set the tone for the battle more than any other dynamic. Rios’ primary baseline strategy was to initially construct baseline exchanges through the Ad court, pitting his lethal, lefty forehand against Agassi’s backhand. At the first sign of a short ball, Rios stepped inside the baseline and ripped the forehand winner the other way, out wide through the Deuce court. Overall, Rios hit 13 forehand winners wide through the Deuce court and seven through the Ad court. Rios used the Ad court as the “assist”, and then switched to the Deuce court as the knock-out punch. Rios put on a masterclass of “freezing” Agassi with his forehand because Agassi had no idea which direction the next laser beam was going. 1. Rios’ Serve This was one of the best serving days Rios could hope for. Consider the following numbers for both players.   Serve Metrics Marcelo Rios Andre Agassi 1st Serves In 66% 55% 1st Serves Won 75% 82% Aces 13 6 2nd Serves Won 63% 38% Double Faults 2 4 Break Points Saved 0/1 8/12 Rios was always a step ahead with first serve location, especially going against the lefty grain in the Deuce court by serving a lot out wide. He won a staggering 13/14 first serve points going wide in the Deuce court to Agassi’s forehand return, including five aces, catching Agassi sitting on the typical lefty location of slice serves down the T. In the Ad court, Rios won 65 per cent (11/17) with the wide slider and 70 per cent (7/10) mixing down the T. The blend was everything against one of the best returners our game has ever seen. 3. Serve +1 Performance A primary reason Rios only faced one break point for the match was that he immediately followed up his serve with a Serve +1 forehand much more than Agassi did. Serve +1 Forehands •Rios = 63% Serve +1 Forehands / Won 70% •Agassi = 43% Serve +1 Forehands / Won 56% A specific derivative of the match Rios targeted was returning to Agassi’s backhand, which would then typically come back cross court to Rios’ forehand, where he could establish early control of the point. This strategy was especially potent against Agassi’s second serve. Agassi 2nd Serve / Serve +1 Performance •Agassi 2nd Serve +1 Forehands = Won 56% (5/9) •Agassi 2nd Serve +1 Backhands = Won 17% (4/23) Rios directed 72 per cent (23/32) of second-serve returns at Agassi’s backhand, and won 83 per cent (19/23) of those points. Baseline Performance Very rarely has Agassi been outgunned in a baseline-to-baseline exchange, but Rios got the better of him on this hot Sunday afternoon in Miami. Baseline Points Won (Both players at baseline when point ends) •Rios Baseline Points Won = 54% (87) •Agassi Baseline Points Won = 46% (75) It was a masterful display from Rios from start to finish. It was as though he stole Agassi’s playbook and delivered it back to him with interest in a left-handed version.',54,0,105,'4/3/2020 3:17:00 PM'
sp_AddNewsStory 'Apostolos Tsitsipas: The Accidental Tennis Coach','https://www.atptour.com/en/news/apostolos-tsitsipas-father-coach-feature-2019','Editor''s Note: ATPTour.com is resurfacing features to bring fans closer to their favourite players. This story was originally published on 16 November 2019. Based on his childhood, it''s far more likely that Apostolos Tsitsipas would be coaching the Greek national football team than the country''s global tennis star, his son and World No. 6 Stefanos Tsitsipas, who beat Dominic Thiem on Sunday to win the Nitto ATP Finals title in London. Apostolos and his brother goofed around on a nearby, self-maintained “grass court” with wooden racquets as kids, but, growing up, Apostolos'' sports were football and basketball. He briefly competed on the Greek national football team. As a sport science major at the University of Athens, he specialised in tennis for reasons that still elude him. [TSITSIPAS GEAR] “ It was strange because nobody from my background was involved in tennis,” he told ATPTour.com. “But I chose tennis, I don''t know why. Actually, that''s a good question.” Rare is the coach of a top player who didn''t compete on the ATP Tour or at least collegiately in the U.S. Although they weren''t all household names as players, all but three coaches of the eight Nitto ATP Finals qualifiers earned ATP Ranking points during their playing days. Coaches Of The Top 8 Players In The ATP Rankings ATP Ranking Player Coach(es) Coaches'' Career-High ATP Rankings 1 Rafael Nadal Carlos Moya/Francisco Roig 1/60 2 Novak Djokovic Marian Vajda/Goran Ivanisevic 34/2 3 Roger Federer Ivan Ljubicic/Severin Luthi 3/622 4 Daniil Medvedev Gilles Cervara 0 5 Dominic Thiem Nicolas Massu 9 6 Stefanos Tsitsipas Apostolos Tsitsipas 0 7 Alexander Zverev Alexander Zverev Sr. 175 8 Matteo Berrettini Vincenzo Santopadre, Umberto Rianna 100/0 The former players turned coaches have been there done that and can offer experience as a top asset. But others, including Apostolos, have shown that playing inside The O2 in front of roaring crowds is not a prerequisite to leading a player into the Top 10. Apostolos, along with his wife, Ioulia Salnikova, a former Top 200 WTA player, started teaching Stefanos tennis at the age of three. Dad focused on technique – his one-handed backhand, taking the ball early – and Mom on discipline, “Always do your best.” When Stefanos was 12, Apostolos joined his son as his full-time coach, travelling with him to junior events across the world, and that''s where Apostolos remains today, in his son''s coaching box, the gray-haired father of four applauding and encouraging his 21-year-old son. “ It''s a big honour to have him next to me by my side,” Stefanos said. “I love him. He loves me. We have been together since the age of 12, travelling together. I appreciate that.” When Apostolos was 20, in his third year at the University of Athens, he had only just decided on tennis as his sport. Three years later, at the age of 23, he played in his first tennis tournament of any kind, the Greek championships. From there, his tennis coaching took him across the world. Apostolos travelled for two years with loulia on the WTA and studied tennis coaching for three more years in Vienna and Berlin in the early 1990s, during the the golden period of German tennis, when Boris Becker and Steffi Graf were at the top of the men''s and women''s games. But his growing family of four required a more stable life, so he accepted a job as a country club teaching pro in Athens. Apostolos, armed with seven years of coaching education and a decade of recreational playing experience, tried to teach more than wins and losses to his players and their families. When the parents would want more wins, he''d ask for more time . “ I was explaining that we can do a lot of things, but we need to consider seriously that it will take us five, six years to develop a young player. But people, they''re not really patient enough to wait, to invest money, invest time,” Apostolos said.  “You have to develop as an athlete, your body. You have to develop your mind... and you have to develop your technique.” Years later, however, when Stefanos told his father he was ready to take tennis more seriously, Apostolos finally met a parent he could reason with: himself. The two have been travelling together for nine years, with Apostolos helping Stefanos climb 76 spots in the ATP Rankings last year (91 to 15). This year, the Greek has completed the Milan to London transition, from winning the 2018 Next Gen ATP Finals title to triumphing in the title match of the 2019 Nitto ATP Finals in London. Despite guiding his son to unprecedented achievements in Greek tennis history, Apostolos doesn''t think of himself as the one making headlines. The father who has led his son every step of his career says that he feels fortunate his son has chosen him. “ With Stefanos, even though I studied so much, I just feel that I know very few things. You need to always be open-minded and ready to learn. Stefanos gave me such a chance to learn,” Apostolos said. “I think he was the best university for me.” It''s a school of thought that can be rare among coaches of any sport, especially those at the top of their game. But, in this case, it sounds about right; it sounds like Apostolos Tsitsipas.',54,0,105,'4/3/2020 10:32:00 AM'
sp_AddNewsStory 'Delgado: ''Murray Was Coming Close To Return''','https://www.atptour.com/en/news/coaches-corner-delgado-murray-covid-19','Jamie Delgado says that former World No. 1 Andy Murray was close to making a comeback before the COVID-19 global pandemic led to the suspension of ATP Tour events last month. Speaking this week to ATP Tennis Radio , Delgado admitted, “Andy and I were practising a couple of weeks ago on the hard, with the potential of playing Miami, but we were holding on [over a decision] after the Indian Wells event cancellation. We then practised on clay for some days, then bit by bit [the world] closed down. We will just have to wait and see when the restrictions lift for everyone. “It’s a tough time for everyone, not just on the tennis court, but the whole world has come to a halt. I haven’t left the house for a couple of days, and I only leave to get food and exercise once per day… My parents were on a cruise a couple of weeks ago in Central America, but were fortunate to get off and get a flight.” Delgado, who joined Murray’s team in February 2016, first assisting Ivan Lendl, then as the Scot’s full-time coach from November 2017, isn’t sure when the Tour will resume. This week, the ATP Tour was suspended until 13 July. “Tennis is such an international, global sport, that it may take a while to get back. Players, coaches, officials, sponsors and fans are all involved,” says Delgado. “It’s not like a domestic football league, where no one is needed to fly in or fly out. With Andy coming close to fitness, this virus was the last thing we wanted.” The 43-year-old is used to biding his time, following Murray’s rehabilitation from two hip surgeries in recent years and a pelvic injury that has prevented the former World No. 1 from competing since November 2019. [TENNIS AT HOME] Delgado also told the weekly radio podcast, which is broadcast every Sunday, “This is a unique situation for everybody. What can be done from a tennis player’s perspective is to stay in shape, stay prepared as things could change and tournaments may start up again. “Here, in London, all the clubs and courts are closed, so it’s difficult to hit balls. Andy doesn’t have a court at home. [But] it’s important to have a racquet in your hand, even if it’s hitting against a wall. Rolling over some serves, particularly as injuries and niggles can arise if you haven’t played for a while.” As a player, Delgado competed at The Championships, Wimbledon, for 23 consecutive years until his retirement in 2014. In the final years of his career, he started coaching Gilles Muller, who rose from No. 366 in the 2013 year-end FedEx ATP Rankings to the Top 50 by the end of the 2014 season.',54,0,105,'4/3/2020 5:51:00 AM'
sp_AddNewsStory 'Jannik Sinner''s Blog: Pizza, PlayStation & Boredom Prevention During Lockdown','https://www.atptour.com/en/news/jannik-sinner-blog-tennis-at-home-april-2020','Since flying back from Indian Wells a few weeks ago, I’ve been at my apartment in Monte-Carlo, unable to return to Italy, where the coronavirus pandemic isn’t very good. First of all, I’m trying to stay safe, but I’ve also started working hard on my fitness and conditioning. With the Tour suspension, there hasn’t been time yet to hit a ball. In the past six years, the longest period I didn’t hit a ball was when I damaged my ligaments and I was out for three weeks. Then, when I returned, I started slowly without moving a lot. Right now, I’m waking up at nine o’clock, having breakfast, then at 10, I train for 90 minutes with my physical trainer Dragoljub Kladarin. Dalibor Sirola, who is in Croatia and can’t move either, sends Dragoljub programs. We first work on mobility and stability in the morning. I rest a bit, then at around 12:30, I eat something and rest some more. Around 3pm, I leave my apartment to go to my garage downstairs and I work for up to two hours on my strength. Once I finish for the day, I shower, play on my PlayStation — games such as Fifa and Fortnite — eat and sleep. It looks like I have to do this for three or four months now! You may have seen how I’ve created the #SinnerPizzaChallenge , in response to the Coronavirus, on my social media. The response has been very good. I’d really like Roger, Rafa and Novak to make a pizza, but I know they have their own initiatives to focus on. The idea is to create my face or the face of an Italian on a pizza, then tag it #SinnerPizza or #SinnerPizzaChallenge. It would definitely be difficult to recreate my hair right now — it’s a bit long! The idea is to donate money to Bergamo, which is in a bad situation with many people dying. My own effort wasn’t very good, the pizza was too hard. Growing up, my Dad was the cook, so I learned some dishes from him. I like to make easy pasta, as it’s always nice to eat. I left home aged 13 to move to Riccardo Piatti’s tennis centre, so I’m used to cooking, cleaning and washing my own clothes. It was tough, but I grew up quickly as a person. Initially, I lived with one of the centre’s coaches, Luka Cvjetkovic, who had a wife, two young children and a dog, because I really needed a family around me. Riccardo was very smart in thinking about me, so being with Luka’s family made me feel better. I now live alone in an apartment, so I have to handle everything. Normally, I call my family every two or three days, but now everyone is isolating, I call each evening. Thankfully, my parents and brother, Marc, are doing well. Hopefully, the Coronavirus will go away as soon as possible. I know every country is doing their best to lockdown. I do get bored easily, because normally I am always on the move. When I was younger, I went out to play with friends, sports like football with my classmates. I think it’s important to play a lot of sports, before you decide. Today, all I can do is relax, work on my fitness and watch TV series. Hearing the news of the grass swing and Wimbledon’s cancellation, Riccardo and my team — Dalibor, Andrea Volpini and physiotherapist Claudio Zimaglia — will need to draw up a plan, so to be ready once tournaments resume. Over the past 12 months, I’ve improved my forehand, but during this Tour suspension we still need to work on it, as well as my volley and serve. One of the reasons for my rapid rise up the [FedEx ATP Rankings] has been due to playing older players, adults, as a junior. I remember losing in the Sharm El Sheikh first round and telling Riccardo to put me in Futures events from now on. There were many tough times and lots of first-round losses, but since getting my first points [in February 2018], it’s gone very fast. Last year’s Next Gen ATP Finals title was very nice for me, of course, but I didn’t party of anything. I went to a Challenger tournament near my home and searched for the feeling of victory again. I am just trying to grow and improve day-after-day. Thankfully, I have an excellent team and during this Tour suspension, I’m going to keep working as hard as ever. I hope everyone can stay healthy and safe until the situation improves. As told to James Buddell.',54,0,105,'4/3/2020 5:04:00 AM'

sp_AddNewsStory 'French Open preview: Petra Kvitova more than a sentimental favorite','http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/tennisworld-bodo/~3/A9d4DiKW0jY/','Petra Kvitova is no longer haunted by the queasy feeling she sometimes experienced when picking up a racquet with her surgically repaired left hand. She doesn’t scan public places any more, anxiously looking for strangers. She’s gotten over her fear of being alone, something she felt even in the safe confines of a tournament locker room. The memory of the man who invaded Kvitova’s home and severely injured her left, hitting hand in December 2016 will never go away. “I’ve been through many, many things, not really great ones,” the 28-year-old Czech said at this year’s Australian Open, during her runner-up press conference. Kvitova repeated the words of gratitude she had told her team inside Rod Laver Arena, following a narrow defeat to Naomi Osaka, as she basked in the admiration of a supportive crowd. Her team’s faith and confidence in her, she said, were invaluable. “I didn’t know if I going to hold the racquet again,” Kvitova said. “But I’m holding it now. Thank you.” Thus, one chapter in the unexpectedly dramatic life of Petra Kvitova quietly closed on that sultry evening: a tale of powers stolen and now regained. Having done no better than two Grand Slam quarterfinals since winning her second Wimbledon title in 2014, Kvitova appears to be a force at the majors once again. It wasn’t just that Kvitova reached the Australian Open final, it was how she did it. She won a tune-up title in Sydney, posting straight-set wins over Aryna Sabalenka and Angelique Kerber along the way, and didn’t drop a set in Melbourne until her encounter with Osaka. A few weeks later, Kvitova reached her third final in her first five tournaments of 2019, at the talent-laden Dubai event. Ranked No. 29 at the start of 2018, the former No. 2 was up to No. 3 again by the end of February.  “It’s kind of weird, to be honest,” Kvitova said of her hot start, “Because I didn’t know even if I’m gonna play tennis again.” As the aforementioned chapter ended with Kvitova’s return to the top of the sport, another chapter advanced toward conclusion with the long-awaited identification, arrest and trial of her assailant. The chapters that remain have to do with challenges many players are familiar with, albeit not on Kvitova’s grand scale. Kvitova is a prodigious talent, a bedeviling southpaw who has won two Grand Slam tournaments, a WTA year-end championship and 27 tour-level titles–most recently on the red clay in Stuttgart just over three weeks ago. She has a swerving, shutdown serve and a shotmaker’s yen for cracking winners. “Petra is absolutely capable of taking a match away from someone,” the clever counterpuncher Ashleigh Barty said after losing to Kvitova in January. “At times it’s very much out of my control, what she does from her end of the court.” Yet a graph of Kvitova’s career is noteworthy for its valleys as well as its peaks. She’s been a win away from the No. 1 ranking, but never achieved it. She’s looked unbeatable at majors, only to lose the plot and take a baffling loss. Between her second title at Wimbledon in 2014 and the 2016 US Open, Kvitova reached the quarterfinals at a Slam just once in nine tries. Her career-redefining run Down Under improved her record in Grand Slam quarterfinals to a middling 6–5. The reason: a still-unresolved, career-long battle with nerves. “The nerves were there again,” Kvitova acknowledged at Wimbledon last July, after losing in the first round to 50th-ranked Aliaksandra Sasnovich. “I just tried to fight with myself. I was probably the biggest opponent.” Kvitova is often asked how the Czech Republic manages to produce so many terrific tennis players, including Hall of Famers Ivan Lendl, Martina Navratilova and Jana Novotna. Her reply has become a stock one: “Maybe something in the water or in the air.” Or maybe something in the parents. Kvitova was introduced to the game by her father Jiri Kvita, a schoolteacher and, as a coach, a stern taskmaster. She had a fine if not dazzling junior career that peaked with an ITF junior ranking of No. 27. It didn’t take long for her to capitalize on her built-in lefty advantage, flat groundstrokes and the power she’s capable of generating with her 6-foot height and long limbs. Her turf-ready game earned her the Wimbledon junior title in 2007. As a pro, Kvitova popped onto the scene in a big way at 19, when she bounced world No. 1 Dinara Safina out of the 2009 US Open. The following year, she made the semifinals at Wimbledon, and then won it all in 2011. Beaten at her own power game in that Wimbledon final, 6–3, 6–4, Maria Sharapova admitted that Kvitova simply “hit deeper and harder,” adding, “she has a tremendous amount of potential to go even further and achieve many great things.” But Kvitova wasn’t fully prepared for the pressure and stress created by her sudden fame. Friendly but shy, she found it difficult to adjust to the limelight. She felt pressure from the outside, and piled massive expectations upon herself. “You’re thinking you have to win every single match because you won a Grand Slam,” Kvitova put it recently about her early-career success. Kvitova adjusted to life near the top, but kinks remained in her game and temperament. A streaky player by nature, Kvitova has been subject to dramatic mood swings that have her cracking bold winners for a period, then spraying balls all over the court in other intervals. In big matches, her nerves often betrayed her. At its best, Kvitova’s hot-and-cold game has carried her as close as you can get to tennis’ summit without reaching it. In the semifinals of the 2012 Australian Open, a win over Sharapova would have given Kvitova the No. 1 ranking. She led by a break in the third set, but Sharapova prevailed. The No. 1 ranking also was up for grabs in this year’s Australian Open final. Kvitova held the momentum after winning the second set, but it was Osaka who took both prizes. The mind is like 80 percent of the game,” Kvitova said after her 7–6 (2), 5–7, 6–4 loss to the unflappable Osaka. “You really have to believe in yourself. Sometimes everyone has those troubles to do that. I think that’s human. I’m not [an] exception.” The French Open warms to players who accept that they are only human. Rafael Nadal is remarkably humble for an 11-time champion. Simona Halep, the 2018 winner, was embraced for the way she admitted to her shortcomings in the previous years’ final. Happy-go-lucky Gustavo Kuerten of Brazil became an icon on the terre battue. As sentimental favorites go, Kvitova would be near the top of the list. While faster surfaces are friendliest to Kvitova’s game, nobody would have guessed that Sharapova would win more majors at the French Open than anywhere else, and nobody ever mistook Serena Williams for a clay-court specialist, either. It just may be that a positive, come-what-may attitude, and a willingness to absorb the frustrations that are part of the slower clay game, are the real keys to flourishing in Paris. If so, Kvitova may be on her way. In 2017, she chose to launch her comeback from her injury at Roland Garros, rather than on comfortable grass a few weeks later. The French crowd took to Kvitova like a beloved compatriot. After winning her first match in straight sets, she said “it was a really heartwarming welcome the court... a pleasure to play in front of that crowd.” Warm feelings aside, Kvitova has taken great strides in her clay game. Last year, she logged a 13-match win streak on the surface, including a title at the Madrid Open. In the lead-up to Roland Garros, Kvitova felt “sad” that the clay season was coming to a close. It came to an earlier close than expected, with Kvitova taking a third-round loss to Anett Kontaveit in Paris. That may have had less to do with clay than with Kvitova’s well-documented nerves, as she struggled once again with the demands of Grand Slam competition and pressure. “When I was younger, I played better on the Grand Slams than the other tournaments,” Kvitova said after losing her first-round match at Wimbledon last July. “Now I’m playing better on the other tournaments than the Grand Slams. So I make a promise that I’m going to be very patient and I’m going to try to break [through] again for the other side.” After losing in the third round of her next major, the US Open, she made good on that promise, reaching the final at the Australian Open. Now, instead of apologizing for her anxiety-induced breakdowns, Kvitova is plotting a new career. It sometimes works that way when a player takes a long break, even an unplanned one. “I’m calling it my second career,” Kvitova said upon reaching the final four in Melbourne. “So it’s the first semifinal of my second career... I’m happy this time it’s different.” The WTA landscape is rich with opportunity for both mature and young players. It’s an ideal environment for those hoping to break through in a big way, as Kvitova did at Wimbledon in 2011, or for experienced pros seeking to redress shortcomings, take advantage of newfound dedication or maturity, or to make the most of second chances—like Kvitova now. The events that have provided Kvitova with the chance to view the coming months and years as a second career were appalling. But if her new, deeper appreciation of the game ena-bles her to relax a little more and to build on her recent success, she may add more chapters of Grand Slam glory to her remarkable autobiography.',50,0,105,'5/21/2019 8:57:00 AM'
sp_AddNewsStory 'Indian Wells is known for its doubles. Could the event team with UTR?','http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/tennisworld-bodo/~3/UNLlvcrPjhE/','The Jack Kramer Club in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA, where legendary coaches such as Vic Braden and Robert Lansdorp helped shape the nascent games of Open-era icons including Tracy Austin, Pete Sampras and Lindsay Davenport, added another significant chapter to its legacy last December. It hosted the inaugural California Championships.  The event offered a modest, $30,000 purse. The highest seed was then-ATP No. 33 Steve Johnson; the winner was then-ATP No. 51 Sam Querrey. Mardy Fish and Tommy Haas, whose tournament-playing days are behind them, were among the other notable competitors. What was so historic about it? For one, it was perhaps the most “open” of all tennis tournaments ever staged. Over the course of a hectic week, 269 recreational and professional players competed in the California Championships, using an orderly format and entry system based on a new, disruptive technology sweeping the game: UTR. Universal Tennis Rating (UTR) is an algorithm-driven system that rates a player based on his or her 30 most recent matches over the past 12 months, on a numerical scale ranging from 1.00 (raw beginner) to 16.5 (Novak Djokovic territory). It is based on the quality of the opponents and the score differential—competitiveness—of matches, rather than simply wins or losses. It is blind to age or gender. Any match between players registered with UTR can be tracked as long as UTR is provided the data, either by the players or tournament. More than a million players already have UTR ratings, and UTR has processed over 10 million match results. “The possibilities with UTR are almost limitless,” says Manhattan Beach native Jeff Tarango, a former pro and California Championships tournament director. At last year’s Miami Open, when ESPN tennis analyst Brad Gilbert ran into colleague Patrick McEnroe and McEnroe’s daughter, Victoria, a highly skilled junior player, the first words out of her mouth to Gilbert were, “So what’s your UTR?” UTR is not a coming thing. It is an already here thing. Novak Djokovic (UTR 16.28 at the 2019 Australian Open) and Tennis Australia recently announced a partnership with UTR, which gives pro-tour insights. Ranked No. 1 in Melbourne, Simona Halep’s UTR (13.28) was less than Serena Williams’ (13.34); Williams won their fourth-round match, 6–1, 4–6, 6–4. Competitive tennis is like an enormous onion, with layer after layer of expertise. The weekend warrior who annually dominates his club championships enters a sectional USTA event and gets waxed in the second round by the No. 7 seed, love-and-two. That player then can’t get a set off of a solid Division I NCAA college player—who then can’t buy a win in an ATP Challenger qualifying event. And so forth. Official rankings in such a competitively deep sport have always been a perilous exercise. They were principally comprised in two ways: through the subjective evaluation and comparison of players’ performances in sanctioned tournaments; or on the basis of points earned, usually by the rounds reached in those events, as on the ATP and WTA. One drawback of such rankings was that it favored players who were willing and able to travel to and play many events, especially as the competition grew stiffer. The other drawback was that, except for the top events, the skill levels of players was far too disparate. Virginia tennis pro Dave Howell, who launched UTR in 2008, analyzed tournament results and found that, on average, only one of four matches at a junior tournament were competitive. Howell’s inspiration for UTR was a similar ranking system already used in France, with some data-based modifications. He ultimately sold UTR to a group headed by Silicon Valley venture capitalist Mark Leschly, who played college tennis and recruited a formidable group of investors including tech powerhouse Oracle, Blue Ridge Capital and Roger Federer’s management group, Team8. Almost overnight, UTR has given tennis players something they have never had: a simple, clear rating system that, like a handicap in golf, provides an objective, results-based measure of one’s skill. That opens opportunities that had never before been available in tennis: level-based competition; the chance to improve without traveling to distant tournaments; the ability to better your ranking even without winning (by playing well against higher-rated opponent, in terms of games won) and a vastly expanded menu of tournaments from which to build ratings. With UTR-based entry, the California Championships hosted 128 matches on the first day, featuring players ranked as low as 2.96—roughly the equivalent of an NTRP men’s rating of 3.0. The early rounds were contested with Fast4 rules. Using a staggered feed-in, players with higher UTR ratings didn’t compete until the later rounds, as a way to ensure competitive matches from start to finish. After 223 total matches, the highest UTR level was the champion Querrey’s, at 15.46. “It’s a great way to organize and run a tournament,” says Tarango. “The reverse [staggered] feed-in works great. It brings in players in at their own level, and that makes a big difference.” In his winner’s speech, Querrey got to the heart of what made the event unique, and UTR’s impact on it. “It’s fun to have everyone from 8-year-olds to—I don’t know how old the oldest person was—play the same tournament,” he said. UTR’s greatest impact may currently be felt in college tennis. Coaches have a standard rating to measure potential recruits against, and players have more opportunities to find comparable competition to better their skills­ and their rating, no matter where they live. “Tennis is a traditional sport, but it’s been held back because of it,” says Leschly, the CEO of Universal Tennis. “We need to make some changes to grow the game because we’re living in a digital world, especially when it comes to kids. We need to take advantage of tech and connectivity.” Using tech and its reach isn’t just about fancy algorithms. It’s about empowering disadvantaged players, broadening the pool of tournaments, finding players for teams and introducing a greater degree of certainty to college recruiting. “Say there’s a young Frances Tiafoe out there, but he doesn’t have the $50,000 it takes to travel to tournaments chasing points in order to develop a ranking,” Leschly says. “Now he can play locally across all age and gender groups, develop a UTR and become eligible for a college scholarship.” Until UTR gained traction, Leschly’s own son, an excellent college player, had trouble finding a decent group of practice partners close to home. With UTR, he learned there was a pool of over 20 ideal candidates nearby. As any club or organization is free to host an official UTR tournament, the opportunities for a player to improve at little expense grows exponentially. “My kids are crazy about UTR,” says Kamau Murray, currently the coach of Olympic gold medalist Monica Puig. He’s also the CEO of XS Tennis, a well-funded program that targets the underserved youth of Chicago. “They love it. It lowers a lot of barriers to getting noticed and maybe earning a scholarship.” UTR may be having its greatest impact in the collegiate game. As Leschly puts it, how is a coach supposed to compare a player with a high national ranking in Romania to a player from the always-strong NorCal USTA section? The integrity of tournaments and rankings isn’t always guaranteed, but it’s much harder to game the UTR system. More important, perhaps, is the way UTR can help players aspiring to go pro with the ITF Transition Tour. The pathway onto the ATP is now much narrower. “The chance for a college player to excel up through the game without wild cards is virtually non-existent on the transition tour,” Leschly says. “We’re trying to create a pathway with UTR.” Steve Johnson was the highest-ranked ATP pro to enter the 269-player California Championships. But the winner of the event, which included players as young as 8 years of age, was Sam Querrey, whose UTR of 15.46 was the highest in the field. The ATP and WTA Indian Wells tournament will not rely in any substantial way on UTR—at least not this year. But it almost seems inevitable that at some point it will. Larry Ellison, the owner of the popular March event, is an innovator. He’s also the founder of tech behemoth Oracle, which powers UTR. People always ask Leschly if UTR is “better” than the ATP rankings, or if UTR hopes to replace them. “We’re not here to change the ATP or WTA rankings,” he said. “Theirs is based on point accumulation. Ours is different. At the pro level we tell an interesting narrative that compliments the rankings. The ATP tells the story of how far you went at major tournaments in the last 12 months. “UTR is about how you’re competing, especially in relation to other players. Which seems better? It’s in the eye of the beholder.” Leschly’s disclaimer doesn’t change the fact that UTR features its pro ratings prominently on its home page . The ratings are similar enough to the tour rankings to be relevant, different enough to be compelling. In addition to the overall rating, each player has a three-month trending rating. In UTR, a slumping player isn’t living off points earned nine months earlier, nor punished when results from long ago drop off. To be sure, a few aspects of UTR can and probably will be tweaked. The rating doesn’t take playing surface into account, nor a player’s surface proficiency. Also, while UTR is blind to gender and age, a lack of crossover play influences the ratings. Serena Williams held a rating of 13.28 at the start of 2019. She was ranked No. 16 by the WTA, but rated No. 2—a whisker behind then-WTA No. 1 Simona Halep—in UTR. That isn’t even in the Top 150 among men’s UTR ratings. For Williams to significantly improve her UTR, she would have to do well against more highly rated players—she would have to play men. That notwithstanding, UTR has already been an age and gender barrier-busting technology. At most levels, the ratings produce competitive matchups. If you’re a UTR 6.0, you can expect a good match against a woman who plays Division III collegiate tennis, a man with an NTRP of 4.0, a woman with an NTRP of 4.5 or a boys’ USTA sectional 14-and under contender. Pairing a senior player against a youngster of the same UTR can provide an objective lesson in maturity. That points to the overarching potential value of UTR as a tool for community building. Leschly didn’t acquire UTR and attract his string of heavy-hitting investors just because he wanted to give tennis a handicapping system. He plans to make UTR a platform for a full range of tennis-related activities, from shopping to tournament entry and social interaction. Think of Leschly as the Mark Zuckerberg of tennis, but 16 years older and wearing a white polo instead of a hoodie. The advantage Leschly’s company may have over other digital tennis platforms is UTR itself. Players will gather because of the common rating system, and from there, a racquet or tickets will be a click away. “We want to build a very large platform and become a destination where people can engage digitally,” he says. “This is the Yelp, the OpenTable of tennis.” The effort is bearing fruit. The California Championships was a landmark event, but it wasn’t a one-off experiment. A UTR community engagement platform was rolled out last July, featuring a fully-integrated tournament and event management system, and it has already been the host for 1,800 UTR events. Perhaps the acronym should stand for Universal Tennis Revolution.',50,0,105,'3/4/2019 4:03:00 PM'
sp_AddNewsStory 'The 37 Club: What does 2019 have in store for Serena and Federer?','http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/tennisworld-bodo/~3/azJpTBDfhVU/','Court Report: Serena Williams, just one Slam shy of Margaret Court''s record, is ready for 2019   They are the twin rails on which the game has traveled for nearly two decades, like some great locomotive powering its way across the public’s imagination. Serena Williams and Roger Federer, hailed by most as the greatest players of all time in their respective divisions of the sport, are like railroad tracks: their careers progressed on parallel paths, forever in great proximity. Rail tracks never meet, not even at the end of the line, except by optical illusion on the distant horizon. One of the rails never stops while the other goes on. After she won her first-round match at Wimbledon last July, Serena bantered with the press, saying of her future in the game: “Oh, I’m just playing until Roger stops. As long as he’s here, I’m going to try to be here.” Williams’ words came in the wake of the headlines Federer generated when he told The Wall Street Journal that Serena was the greatest tennis player of all time—“overall,” not just female, he clarified. “I feel the same about him,” Williams promptly lobbed back. Born about six weeks apart but to well-chronicled, vastly different circumstances in profoundly different cultures, Federer and Williams are both 37 years old. Williams has 23 Grand Slam singles titles and Federer has a men’s record 20, but although both remain threats to add to those totals, 37 is the more pertinent number. It’s an age when injury lurks beneath every explosive move; when inspiration and consistency are no longer automatic; when shocking losses bear down, unseen in the rear-view mirror, until it’s too late. If you’re a sentimentalist or superstitious, you might be inclined to believe one player will invariably go the way of the other in 2019. The way 2018 played out suggests that assumption is reasonable, but also that this will be a challenging year for both. Serena Williams 2018 Record: 18-6 Australian Open: DNP French Open: 4R Wimbledon: F US Open: F Our final image of Williams in 2018 was that of an overwrought player caught in a vortex of emotions, arguing and drifting farther and farther from the fact that she, the imperious queen of women’s tennis, was locked in a perilously tight match with Naomi Osaka, a 20-year old, first-time Grand Slam finalist. Forget the rights and wrongs of the incident for the moment. It represented a disastrous loss of focus—a miscalculation that could only be put down to Williams feeling pressure, so much pressure that it blew a valve. Williams resolutely denies feeling pressure as a matter of course, yet how can she not? There she was in September, losing to a youngster who grew up idolizing her. There’s also the matter of that single, elusive major title she still needs to equal Margaret Court’s record. Williams imposed an embargo on the topic well before her maternity leave, but don’t believe she’s forgotten its significance. When Williams began her comeback at Indian Wells, six months after giving birth to a daughter, Alexis Olympia Jr., her goal was simply to find her game. “I’m out there, and I can’t really replicate the situation no matter how much I do in practice, or [if] I make those shots 10 times out of 10 in practice,” she said after losing to her sister, Venus, in her third match. “It’s just the nerves, the anticipation you feel naturally. You know, it’s a little bit of everything that comes in a match that just doesn’t normally happen.” After a first-round loss to Osaka in Miami, Williams had an excellent French Open, winning three matches before she was obliged to withdraw with an injured pectoral muscle. She was philosophical about the setback, saying, “I can only take solace in the fact I’m going to continue to get better—and I’m coming up on surfaces that are my absolute favorite to play on, and that I do best on.” True to her prediction, Williams was lethal at Wimbledon, if buoyed by a favorable draw. In the final she met Angelique Kerber, the woman she’d beaten for the title in 2016. Surprising everyone but herself, Kerber played a brilliant match to win, 6–3, 6–3. A disappointed Williams nonetheless took something away from the event. “I feel really proud to be a role model,” Williams said at Wimbledon of her status as a mother on tour. “I’ve embraced it. . . I think it’s so important for me. It’s one of my life goals.” With the US Open on the horizon, Serena was everywhere—on television, on billboards, on social media. But her game was nowhere to be found. She went just 1–2 before the Open, and her 6–1, 6–0 blowout loss to Johanna Konta in San Jose was the worst of her career in terms of games won. A few days later, she took to Instagram, writing in part: “Last week was not easy for me. Not only was I accepting some tough personal stuff, but I just was in a funk. Mostly, I felt like I was not a good mom. I read several articles that said postpartum emotions can last up to three years if not dealt with.” It became clear in the dog days of August that even as Williams’ game was fraying, her celebrity was bourgeoning. That put her in a difficult position at the US Open, where she already had a checkered history. Sometimes it seems that the sheer volume of hype and the glitz of Gotham simply gets to Williams and keeps her from playing her finest, most relaxed tennis. Still, Williams played admirably up until she ran off the rails in the final, where she received three code violations, launched into a tirade against chair umpire Carlos Ramos and, soon after, lost to Osaka, 6–2, 6–4. Williams will return to the tour under different, potentially less stressful conditions. She ought to be less distracted, better able to focus on tennis, fitter and stronger. On a given day, she can still demolish any opponent. But the fluctuations she experienced in 2018 are a warning sign. The tour is brimming with gifted young players whose respect for Williams is undiminished but whose awe of her has declined. She hasn’t won a major in nearly two years, since she became the oldest woman in the Open era to claim one. The next one, if she can win it, will stand as her greatest victory. Roger Federer 2018 Record: 48-10 Australian Open: W French Open: DNP Wimbledon: QF US Open: 4R In mid-September at the Laver Cup, the event Federer helped conceive to honor his role model, Rod Laver, I sat chatting with the player-founder about his immediate future. He was enthusiastic about the Asian swing, undecided about the Paris Indoors. He nonchalantly mentioned that the 2019 clay-court season was “under review.” When I pressed, he explained that Euroclay, the April to mid-June segment that he has avoided for the past three seasons, “is not off the table.” I nearly did a double take, because the conventional wisdom held that Federer’s spectacular, post-knee surgery resurgence at age 35 was partly due to his decision to cut red clay from his schedule. More relevant, at the moment, was that given Federer’s history and his struggles in the second half of 2018, returning to clay and all its potential troubles seemed foolhardy. But that’s Federer. The clay issue wasn’t a calculation; it was, as he said, “A full on passion thing.” And it’s hard to get someone invigorated by passion to focus on the past and its shortcomings instead of the future and its promises. Federer launched his 2018 campaign with another age-defying statement, a win at the Australian Open. He then slashed his way through the field in Rotterdam. He was 17–0 on the year when his run was finally halted in the Indian Wells final by Juan Martin del Potro, after holding match points. The first big surprise came a week later in Miami, when Federer took an opening-round loss to Thanasi Kokkinakis. It set the tone for the coming months, during which Federer won just one title until late October, when he triumphed for the ninth time in his hometown of Basel. Far from an alarming record, Federer’s 2018 mark is one most players would give their eye tooth for. He went 48–10 with four titles, including a major. Federer also regained the No. 1 ranking, albeit briefly, three times. So what is so concerning about 2019? The answer lies in the big matches Federer uncharacteristically lost in the second half of the season. He lost them in unexpected ways, and in some cases to players he was widely expected to beat. Borna Coric, who’s never been within shouting distance of a Grand Slam final, beat Federer twice in 2018, including in the Halle grass final. Despite holding a ranking between No. 1 and No. 3 all year, Federer went just 4–6 against Top 10 players, including a loss at the ATP Finals to Kei Nishikori, who had lost his previous six matches to the Swiss. It would be one thing if Federer were taking puzzling or close-call defeats in small events. But it was in the biggest tournaments that his game let him down. He lost a bitterly contested, five-set Wimbledon quarterfinal to Kevin Anderson despite leading by two sets and holding a match point. “You have moments when you rise to the occasion,” Federer said afterward at the All England Club. “Just today, when I needed it, I couldn’t get up. That’s why it’s an average performance and not a good one.” Then, at the US Open, Federer lost in the fourth round, in stifling heat and humidity, to journeyman John Millman. “It was just hot. No shame there,” Federer said. “Just I think these are the things that unfortunately sometimes happen. . . hopefully [I’ll] finish the year strong.” Federer is a superbly resilient player, whose sheer love of the game is a great hedge against disillusion, or loss of confidence. After the US Open, the 37-year-old made three semifinals and won the Swiss Indoors for his 99th career title. One of those semifinal defeats, at the Paris Masters, came against Novak Djokovic in one the season’s best matches. At the year-end ATP Finals, Federer seemed poised to challenge Djokovic one last time, perhaps end the year in a blaze of glory. But after going 2–1 in round-robin play, Federer lost a straight-set semifinal to the eventual champion, Alexander Zverev. “Maybe I didn’t push enough, or I didn’t have enough today to make the difference, to be honest.” Federer told reporters afterward. “[But] I’m very proud that at 37, I’m still so competitive and so happy playing tennis. If I take a step back, I’m actually very happy about the season.” True to their parallel careers, Williams and Federer have the same excellent hole card to play at the start of 2019—their success at the Australian Open. Federer launched his resurgence in Melbourne in 2017, and defended successfully in 2018. Williams has won the event seven times. There’s no better place for the twin tracks to get the train rolling again.

Each passage acknowledges the person as they were then; each subsequent story catches up with the person, or highlights their impact, as they are now. It is best summed up with a quote from the great Arthur Ashe, that was featured on the cover of the November/December issue of this magazine in 2015: “True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.” Q: What goals do you have for the future? A: The only goal for me is to play my best. I just love having the opportunity to compete.  - Joel Drucker / November 1997 There’s no end to the kinds of people who might embrace Mirjana Lucic-Baroni as an inspirational figure: ambitious athletes in the 35-and over age group; those who believe that life can have a second or third act; former burnouts and—perhaps most important, the victims of abuse suffered at the hands of a loved one. In Lucic-Baroni’s case, a demanding father, Marinko. During her spectacular youth, Lucic joined Martina Hingis and Jennifer Capriati as the only women to have won multiple Grand Slam junior singles before turning 15. She was 15 when she won the first pro tournament she entered, the 1997 Croatian Ladies’ Open, as well as the women’s doubles title at the 1998 Australian Open. In 1999, she upset Monica Seles and Nathalie Tauziat to reach the Wimbledon semifinals. Then it all fell apart. Tormented by personal problems, Lucic revealed the abuse she suffered at the hands of her father, the victim of financial setbacks, just before the 1998 US Open. She continued to play on tour until the 2003 US Open, then took an extended hiatus, married Italian restaurateur Daniele Baroni and settled into a quiet life in Sarasota, FL. To that point, her career-high WTA singles ranking peaked at No. 32. But Lucic-Baroni, a power baseliner in the Seles-Capriati mold, wasn’t finished in the limelight. She burst back onto the sports pages at the 2014 US Open, reaching the fourth round as a qualifier with upset wins over Garbine Muguruza and No. 2 seed Simona Halep. At her very next tournament in Quebec City, she defeated Venus Williams in the final. The win set a WTA record for the longest dry spell between titles: over 16 years. Three years later, Lucic-Baroni hit a new career-high singles ranking of No. 20. “I feel like I’m 15 now. I’m 32, but I don’t feel like that,” Lucic-Baroni said after her win over Halep at Flushing Meadows. “My body is really great. I feel fit. I feel strong in my mind. “I still have so much desire, so much to play for.”',50,0,105,'12/14/2018 9:00:00 AM'

They are the people who eat, sleep and drink the game, giving their all to the enterprise they love yet passing through it almost unremarked upon. Some are victims of poor timing, overshadowed by peers. Others simply don’t care for the limelight. Both of those qualifiers apply to Helena Sukova. At 6''2" with a massive serve, heavy forehand and surprisingly soft hands, Sukova was born into a royal tennis family. Her father was a former head of the Czech tennis federation. Her mother, Vera, was an elite player and captain of a Czech Fed Cup team featuring Martina Navratilova. The lineage helps explain why doing well in the sport she loved always seemed to be enough for Sukova. It may also account for her prowess and appreciation for the game of doubles. She’s a paragon for anyone who simply burns with love of the game. Sukova reached four Grand Slam singles finals, losing one to Navratilova, one to Chris Evert and a pair to Steffi Graf. Despite reaching No. 4 in the world, she was never was able to benefit from that bit of luck that the draw gods or upset makers sometimes provide to propel a player of her caliber to break through. Sukova compensated for some of her Grand Slam final shortcomings as a soloist by bagging 10 tour singles titles—and a staggering 69 doubles titles. She won nine Grand Slam doubles titles, five more in mixed doubles and reached No. 1 in the world rankings. Sukova’s wingspan, bone-crunching overhead and crisp volleys created a perfect foundation for grand-scale doubles success. Battling through four Grand Slam singles finals without a win is probably enough to make anyone seek therapy. Sukova went one better: after retiring from tennis, she earned a doctorate degree in psychology and now works as a therapist with, among others, athletes. She also serves as vice president of the Association of Sports Psychologists in the Czech Republic. “When I was growing up we had Ivan Lendl, Jan Kodes and Martina Navratilova,” Sukova told WTA Insider this summer. “The kids wanted to play like them. Now the kids want to be like Petra Kvitova and Karolina Pliskova. So we need those girls, and we’re happy to have them.”',50,0,105,'12/7/2018 7:15:00 AM'
sp_AddNewsStory '50 Years, 50 Heroes: Vic Braden, 1984','http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/tennisworld-bodo/~3/LpIcf4qeu8Y/','For our sixth annual Heroes Issue, we’ve selected passages from the last 50 years of Tennis Magazine and TENNIS.com—starting in 1969 and ending in 2018—to highlight 50 worthy heroes. Each passage acknowledges the person as they were then; each subsequent story catches up with the person, or highlights their impact, as they are now. It is best summed up with a quote from the great Arthur Ashe, that was featured on the cover of the November/December issue of this magazine in 2015: “True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.” Do you think you have what it takes to be club champion? You do if you know yourself, accept yourself, try your best and go all out. If you do all those things and still lose, you’re a champ, nonetheless, because you put yourself on the line and went for it. - Vic Braden / August 1984 It’s fitting that Vic Braden, the man who taught so many Americans how to play and enjoy tennis during the great years of the sport’s boom, emerged from the haze of the Great Smoky Mountains in eastern Tennessee. He was a pioneer of the Open era, and an apt symbol of the new, democratic spirit that powered tennis as it outgrew the confines of exclusive country clubs. Braden, who died at age 85 in 2014 in his adopted home in Orange County, CA, was both peripatetic and indefatigable. He was stocky and stood just 5''6", but was good enough a player to captain the Division III Kalamazoo College tennis team—a squad that won 74 consecutive conference championships from 1936 though 2012. He turned pro during the amateur era and played on the barnstorming tour created by Jack Kramer, a three-time Grand Slam singles champion and architect of the pro tour as we know it. While Braden didn’t become a hero on tour, his outgoing personality, combined with his zest for scientific research, vaulted him to fame and acclaim as a tennis teacher who prefigured the trend toward developmental academies. In 1980, he founded the first of his three Vic Braden Tennis College facilities. As head of the famed Jack Kramer Club in Los Angeles, Braden taught a young Tracy Austin. A licensed psychologist, Braden was jovial and always interested in technology and techniques—often using odd props in his lessons—that made learning to play the game fun. He authored five books with collaborator Bill Bruns, and was one of the first teaching pros to use video to analyze strokes. “One Vic Braden is worth a lot of champions in helping the sport,” Kramer told the Los Angeles Times . “The McEnroes, Borgs, Connors, they’ve been great. But I don’t think any one of them has created the interest in the sport Vic has.” Decades after their heydays, McEnroe, Borg and Connors are still spoken of in reverential tones at tennis clubs. But it’s likely many of those same club players are playing at all because of a different hero.',50,0,105,'12/5/2018 10:00:00 AM'

sp_AddNewsStory 'The Cuomo brothers in prime time','https://www.cjr.org/the_media_today/andrew_chris_cuomo_coronavirus.php','In recent weeks, Andrew Cuomo, the governor of New York, has become a star. News networks have carried his daily press briefings live and in full. He’s also gotten buzz for the interviews he’s done with his brother, Chris Cuomo, who anchors a nightly show on CNN. Typically, the exchanges have been bookended by sibling banter. “I know you’re working hard for your state, but no matter how hard you’re working, there’s always time to call Mom,” Chris told Andrew in mid-March. Andrew had just called her, he replied. “The good news is she said you are her second-favorite son, Christopher.” The next time, Andrew said he was only on air because “Mom told me I had to.” Later on, he told Chris, “You’re better than me.” “Only on the basketball court,” Chris replied. Andrew most recently appeared on Chris’s show Monday night. The next day, Chris announced on Twitter that he had tested positive for covid-19 , the disease caused by the new coronavirus. He’d experienced “fever, chills, and shortness of breath,” but was doing okay, and would continue to host his show from the basement of his home, where he’s in quarantine. At Andrew’s next briefing , he said that his brother was his “best friend” and “a really, sweet beautiful guy.” Then he pulled out the plastic shiv: “He’s young, in good shape, strong—not as strong as he thinks, but he’ll be fine.” During yesterday’s briefing , Andrew patched Chris in via video link to ask how he was doing. Chris said he’d had a fever dream in which Andrew had appeared to him in a ballet outfit and said, “I wish I could wave my wand and make this go away.” Once he’d gotten over the shock of that, Andrew praised Chris for carrying on with his show while sick. “You living it, showing it, doing it, doing the show, reporting on how you feel, reporting on what you’re doing—I think it really demystifies this,” Andrew said. “From a journalistic point of view, a public service point of view, you are answering questions for millions of Americans.” Related:  In a pandemic, what is essential journalism? In recent days, the double act has received positive reviews. The Associated Press wrote , in a headline, that “the Cuomo show, Andrew and Chris,” is “enlivening coronavirus TV.” Dan Adler observed, for Vanity Fair , that their performance “has already spiraled in all sorts of directions, whether out of the need for distractions, heroes, or points of clarification.” Poppy Noor, of The Guardian , called the Cuomos’ “fine bromance” a “balm in troubled times,” proof that “warmth can be conveyed over the airwaves—even during a crisis” and that “the people who serve us during this pandemic are also humans—people who have family they love.” Chris has won plaudits individually, too; last night, Brian Stelter, a colleague at CNN, wrote in his newsletter that Chris is “the most visible face of the coronavirus in the United States.” Stelter added that Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s chief medical correspondent, had advised Cuomo to take some time off work. So far, he hasn’t. “I respect the suggestion,” Stelter wrote, of Gupta’s advice, “but I respect the work ethic more!” All this praise invites skepticism, however. Should Chris be allowed to interview a family member in a journalistic setting? Other news organizations don’t seem to allow similar dynamics: last year, for instance, James Bennet, the editorial page editor at the New York Times , recused himself from campaign coverage after his brother, Senator Michael Bennet, started running for president. When it comes to the Cuomos, the matter has been raised before: in 2013, when Chris interviewed Andrew about a train derailment on the Metro-North, he received flak for doing so . Chris said at the time that he wouldn’t have conducted the interview if it had involved “accountability” or Andrew’s personal ambitions. “It’s obvious,” he said . “If it’s about his political career, or his political actions, or things that he must answer for, that’s for somebody else to do.” In recent weeks, however, Chris has asked Andrew about speculation online that he might make a late run for the White House . And as Ross Barkan wrote recently for CJR , Andrew does have serious questions to answer related to his handling of the coronavirus. Chris has apparently decided that it’s fine, now, for him to be in the position of asking those questions, even as he continues to tease and praise Andrew. Chris isn’t the only journalist lauding the governor right now, of course; far from it. But he is the only journalist who is Andrew’s brother. Why not have another CNN reporter step in? A CNN representative did not respond to a request for comment by press time; Andrew, for his part, has goaded Chris: “C’mon,” he said, during one exchange. “Ask me a tough question.” Chris continuing to anchor through his diagnosis raises a different concern, too—about how he, not his brother, is responding to the coronavirus. He’s said on his show that he doesn’t intend to become the public face of the pandemic. But on Tuesday night, he said, “We do not have the testing data to make real sense of our reality beyond what we know is the face of it for an overwhelming number who get sick. And that face is mine.” Since then, he’s talked about his symptoms; at one point, he’d been shivering so much he chipped a tooth; by now he’s lost thirteen pounds. Last night, Gupta told him, again, that he should probably take time off. What’s the shame in that, and what is he demonstrating by continuing to work, in defiance of medical advice? It’s hard to tell if the Andrew and Chris show is genuine or not. Personal experience and family connections can illuminate stories that would otherwise be abstract. Yet there are plenty of ways Chris Cuomo could communicate about his health with CNN viewers while also taking time to recuperate. While he’s out, a colleague could talk with his brother. Below, more on the coronavirus: The latest: The Labor Department reported that 6.6 million people filed for unemployment benefits last week —doubling the previous week’s figure of 3.3 million, which had itself smashed the all-time weekly record for claims . Elsewhere, the Trump administration, in a reversal of its stance, is set to advise members of the public to cover their faces whenever they leave the house . And the Democratic National Convention, which had been scheduled to open on July 13, in Milwaukee, was pushed back a month , to August, after Joe Biden, the party’s presumptive nominee, called for a delay. Wisconsin’s presidential primary, on the other hand, is set to go ahead as planned next Tuesday , after a federal judge rejected calls to postpone it . Freedom of information?  Also yesterday, the US Navy fired Capt. Brett Crozier, a ship captain who pleaded for help dealing with a coronavirus outbreak on board in a memo to superiors that was leaked to the press. Thomas Modly, the acting Navy secretary, accused Crozier of copying too many people on the memo, and of spreading panic and a false perception “that the Navy is not on the job.” The Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University sued the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for copies of internal policies governing employees’ right to talk to the press. And NPR reported that major cities across the US are refusing to make their pandemic response plans available to the public . Officials in several cities cited security concerns. The business side: American media companies continue to make cuts as the coronavirus crisis bites; yesterday, CQ Roll Call , a government and politics publication in Washington, DC, laid off thirty staffers . Kerry Flynn reports for CNN that media unions—at papers owned by Gannett, for example— are increasingly pushing back on cuts and organizing financial support for furloughed colleagues . Further afield, Rupert Murdoch’s Australian media business is shuttering sixty local newspapers amid a steep decline in advertising revenue . There was happier news in Denmark, however, where lawmakers passed a $26 million relief package shielding news organizations against lost revenue . New from CJR: Journalists typically consider their work to be essential, but the parameters of the current crisis demand that we reconsider what “essential” really means , CJR’s Alexandria Neason writes. “Despite social-distancing work-arounds like microphones on poles and hockey sticks, news organizations that are still sending reporters out into the street are putting everyone at risk.” Also for CJR, Zoë Beery asks whether reporting on panic buying really fuels panic buying . Some coverage, she concludes, “is more likely to spur this behavior than others.” Model of inconsistency: For The Atlantic , Zeynep Tufekci argues that we should stop expecting epidemiological models to be crystal balls . “When a model is believed and acted on, it can look like it was false. These models are not snapshots of the future,” Tufekci writes. “They always describe a range of possibilities—and those possibilities are highly sensitive to our actions.” In brief: The Wall Street Journal profiles Dr. Craig Smith , a surgeon at Columbia University whose unconventional daily memos to colleagues have made him “the pandemic’s most powerful writer.” In the United Kingdom, BBC radio stations are broadcasting reflections from imams to serve Muslims who can’t go to their local mosque. And Mary Brown’s Chicken & Taters, a fast-food chain in Canada, is paying sixteen newspapers to take down their paywalls for a month. H.G. Watson has the (s)coop for Nieman Lab . A piece of good news: David Lat, the founder of the legal blog Above the Law , has been discharged from the hospital , where he had spent a week in critical condition on a ventilator after contracting the coronavirus. Lat spoke to Law.com about his experience . Other notable stories: A court in Pakistan reversed an old ruling in the case of Daniel Pearl , a Wall Street Journal correspondent who was murdered in 2002 while reporting on religious violence. The same year, Omar Saeed Sheikh, a British extremist, was convicted of murder, terrorism, and kidnapping in Pearl’s case, but yesterday, the court overturned the first two convictions and downgraded the third, meaning Sheikh may now be released. State prosecutors plan to appeal. Reporters Without Borders said the verdict was “incoherent” and “a shocking symbol of impunity for crimes of violence against journalists.” This week, authorities in Myanmar arrested Nay Myo Lin, editor-in-chief of the Voice of Myanmar , after he broadcast an interview with a representative of a designated terrorist group. According to Human Rights Watch , the arrest is part of a “deepening crackdown on independent media” in Myanmar in recent days. (ICYMI, E. Tammy Kim reported for CJR last year on the many undercovered violations of press freedom in Myanmar.) And Hans J.G. Hassell, John B. Holbein, and Matthew R. Miles conclude, in a paper for Science Advances , that although a “dominant majority” of journalists identify as liberals, their ideological orientation has “unexpectedly little effect” on what they choose to cover. The media, Hassell, Holbein, and Miles write, “exhibits no bias against conservatives.” ICYMI:  Why did Matt Drudge turn on Donald Trump?',65,0,121,'4/3/2020 8:18:05 AM'

sp_AddNewsStory 'Zoom under pressure','https://www.cjr.org/the_media_today/zoom-hackers.php','It’s the kind of problem many companies would love to have: suddenly people are using your product by the millions, to the point that it has become mission-critical for many, including journalists. Unfortunately for Zoom, what caused the demand (the company says twenty times more people are using the software now than used it in December of 2019) was a global pandemic, one that has exposed some of Zoom’s troubling weaknesses . A few are funny: Boris Johnson, prime minister of the United Kingdom, inadvertently shared the ID number for a cabinet meeting he held via Zoom, opening the door to anyone seeking to log on; a manager at a progressive advocacy group accidentally ran a meeting as a potato . Somewhat more serious (although still on the nuisance end of the spectrum), attendees on some Zoom calls have been interrupted by pornography, thanks to a phenomenon that some are calling “Zoom-bombing ” (borrowed from “photo-bombing”). Trolls appear to be dialing in to random Zoom calls and displaying porn videos or blasting other annoying audio and video. In a statement, Zoom said that hosts can prevent this by requiring a password, or by making use of various features such as the Waiting Room, which keeps new visitors at bay until the host allows them to enter. “We are deeply upset to hear about the incidents involving this kind of attack,” the company said. Some flaws, however, can be extreme, such as a Windows vulnerability through which hackers were able to steal someone’s credentials. All a user had to do, according to a report from a software security blog , was click on a link in the Zoom chat window; if a hacker had configured the link properly, it would connect to the user registry within Windows and provide the user’s login and password. That scenario poses a significant problem for journalists who need to keep their conversations anonymous (in a blog post published Thursday, the company said it has fixed this problem ) . It’s not the first backdoor-style vulnerability Zoom has seen: until late last year, Zoom secretly installed a hidden Web server on Mac computers that could be used by hackers to take control of the video camera. (Zoom has since removed this feature.) Related:  America’s local newspapers confront an apocalypse There are other security risks, too. For some time, Zoom has claimed on its website and in white papers that its video calls are end-to-end encrypted. But a report from The Intercept says that’s not the case —calls are encrypted for data traveling between a user and Zoom’s servers, but the company has access to information once it arrives. (Text chats are end-to-end encrypted, however.) With true end-to-end encrypted apps like WhatsApp or Signal, all information sent in either direction and from any location is locked up, and the companies in question don’t have keys. Zoom offers less privacy, since the company could mine data for its own purposes or be compelled to do so by law enforcement. In a statement to The Intercept , Zoom said that it “only collects data as needed to provide the service,” and that it does not “mine user data or sell user data of any kind to anyone”; it does comply with legal requests from governments and law enforcement officials. And in a blog post published Thursday , the company apologized for using the term “end-to-end encryption” improperly, but promised that it does not decrypt any of the data that is transmitted between users of the service. New security risks seem to be popping up every day: a researcher said he found a way for hackers to easily take control of a user’s microphone and video camera (Zoom said in its Thursday blog post that it has fixed this problem as well). Nilay Patel, the editor of The Verge , said on Twitter : “The biggest question facing Zoom is whether these gaffes are move-fast-break-things mistakes, or reflective of a deeper culture of disrespect for user privacy. Or both.” Will Zoom take advantage of the historic opportunity with which it’s been presented, or sink under the weight of problems ? Until we have more answers, journalists would be wise to use Zoom with caution. Here’s more on Zoom and its flaws: Data leakage : Zoom is being sued by a user who claims it’s illegally disclosing personal information . Zoom collects data when users install or open the application; then, according to the lawsuit, the company shares it, without proper notice, to third parties, including Facebook. The suit, filed Monday in federal court in San Jose, California, contends that Zoom’s privacy policy doesn’t explain to users how it’s feeding Facebook. Zoom told Motherboard , which first reported on the data sharing, that it has removed the relevant code . Privacy flaws : After receiving a damning review in Consumer Reports , Zoom rewrote parts of its privacy policy . Zoom’s original policy allowed the company to collect information from users’ meetings—from videos to transcripts to the notes that users might share through Zoom’s chat feature—and use that information for ad targeting. AG letter : Zoom is now under the scrutiny of the office of New York’s attorney general for its data privacy and security practices. On Monday, the office sent Zoom a letter asking what new security measures the company has put in place to handle increased traffic on its network and to detect hackers, according to a copy reviewed by the New York Times . The letter referred to Zoom as “an essential and valuable communications platform,” but it noted that the company had been slow to address security flaws, including those “that could enable malicious third parties to, among other things, gain surreptitious access to consumer webcams.” Use a VPN: Security experts say if you’re concerned about data leakage from Zoom, or about hackers making use of information in your calls, the best protection is to use VPN, or virtual private networking, software . VPN providers reroute all of your internet traffic through their own secure servers. They keep you anonymous, allow you to disguise your IP address, and provide end-to-end encryption of your data.   Other notable stories : The White House Correspondents’ Association, which organizes presidential briefings, published a statement Wednesday saying it had removed the One America News Network , a right-wing organization, from the regular rotation of seats in the briefing room (although it didn’t mention OANN by name). The WHCA imposed rules last month on how many reporters could attend briefings in order to ensure that they maintain a safe distance due to covid-19 . Only fourteen reporters are allowed to attend at a time, spaced out across the room’s forty-nine seats. White House reporters say an OANN reporter, Chanel Rion, broke the rules twice by standing at the back of the room, claiming she was personally invited by Stephanie Grisham, the White House press secretary. “We do not take this action lightly,” the WHCA board wrote in its statement. “This is a matter of public safety.” JPI Media, owner of the Yorkshire Post and Scotsman , newspapers in the United Kingdom, is putting 350 employees on furlough and cutting the salaries of those who continue working by up to 15 percent. David King, the chief executive of JPI, said 250 sales staff and some 100 other employees will be put on leave “in light of the significant reduction in advertising volumes.” The London Evening Standard , too, has furloughed a number of full-time employees , and all other employees have had their pay reduced by 20 percent for two months, down to a floor of $65,700. And City AM staff will be put on furlough ; the digital edition is suspended. Staff who continue to work will be paid 80 percent of their salary. Edward Felsenthal, the CEO of Time , on the other hand, not only pledged to his staff, of 275, that the company wouldn’t have any layoffs for ninety days , but also that Time would continue growing through new hires, investment in consumer products, and its documentary division. “We’re fortunate,” Felsenthal said of the company’s owners—Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce, and his wife, Lynne Benioff, a philanthropist—who also promised there would be no significant layoffs at Salesforce for ninety days. The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press has released its US Press Freedom Tracker report for 2019 , which notes that journalists in the United States continue to find themselves the targets of physical attacks and threats. According to the tracker, there were thirty-four physical attacks on journalists last year, and data suggested that female reporters were at particular risk of sexual abuse. President Trump’s statements criticizing the press also increased in 2019, setting new records for the number of times he called the media “fake news.” As part of our ongoing Year of Fear series, CJR and The Delacorte Review have been bringing you coverage of how the upcoming election is affecting American towns. In the latest chapter , Sandra Sanchez writes about how Nayda Alvarez and her family, in Texas, are watching the border with Mexico. They are afraid Trump might close the border, or blame Mexicans and other migrants for delivering the coronavirus. More than seventy journalists and professors signed an open letter on Wednesday addressed to Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch, criticizing the way Fox News has handled its reporting on the coronavirus. Viewers, including Trump, “have been regularly subjected to misinformation relayed by the network,” the letter states, “false statements downplaying the prevalence of covid-19 and its harms; misleading recommendations of activities that people should undertake to protect themselves and others, including casual recommendations of untested drugs; false assessments of the value of measures urged upon the public by their elected political leadership and public health authorities.” Facebook and Fox News will be hosting a virtual town hall Thursday at 7pm about the coronavirus pandemic, using Facebook’s Portal video-calling devices. Facebook is shipping a Portal Plus device to every audience member, some thirty people, so they can participate. A number of news organizations are boycotting presidential briefings—not just because they seem increasingly hard to justify as news, but also because editors are concerned about the health risks . Two White House correspondents are already suspected of having contracted covid-19 . That the  New York Times, the Washington Post , and CNBC, among other outlets, would stay away from the briefing room may fundamentally change the character of the briefings. Both MSNBC and CNN cut away from Trump’s most recent press briefing on the coronavirus before it was finished. MSNBC carried most of the proceedings live, though Chuck Todd warned his audience in advance that “we know these briefings have a tendency to veer in a lot of directions. Not all of them are informative or relevant in the midst of this crisis.” CNN skipped Trump’s opening remarks and started airing the briefing only when the lectern was ceded to Deborah Birx and Anthony S. Fauci, the medical experts on the president’s covid-19 task force. The website of the Boston Globe has launched a feature called Boston Helps that readers can use to connect with people who might need assistance during the covid-19 quarantine. Matt Karolian, the general manager of Boston.com, tells the Nieman Lab that Boston Helps gives people five ways to support a neighbor: paying for someone’s groceries; paying for someone’s essential toiletries; paying for meal delivery; paying for a ride-share service; or making a general donation. CJR spoke with Karolian recently in a Galley discussion . The Philadelphia Inquirer writes about Alice Stockton-Rossini, a radio reporter for 710 WOR, a station in New York. Stockton-Rossini spent days reporting from a coronavirus containment zone in New Rochelle, then went to a ninetieth-birthday party she had planned for her mother. Not long afterward, both she and her mother got sick; her mother was hospitalized and tested positive for covid-19 . Two of the people who attended the party have since died, including her mother’s next-door neighbor. “I can hardly bear it,” Stockton-Rossini said. “I had to tell my mother her best friend died.” ICYMI:  Why did Matt Drudge turn on Donald Trump?',65,0,121,'4/2/2020 7:57:58 AM'
