Jamie Murray is no Haylie Duff, and other stories

by

I didn’t mean for today’s short balls to be such a downer post, but here it is. Ya gotta take the good with the bad. Enjoy.

Jamie Murray - The GuardianJamie Murray is no Haylie Duff: Scottish tennis player Jamie Murray — the older brother of phenom Andy Murray — is making a name for himself in doubles. The Guardian published a good profile today, in conjunction with the news that Jamie’s been tapped to play Davis Cup next month, when Great Britain plays the Netherlands.

Junior tennis in the UK, pt. 2: Here’s another story from The Guardian about another player getting lost in the fray. Good luck to her, and good luck to the LTA as they try to get their operations in order.

Tennis down under, going under?: A little dated, but still relevant. The Times reports on the state of Australian Tennis: how it’s getting overshadowed by more “exciting” sports such as rugby, cricket, and swimming; how only now is Tennis Australia beefing up its player development fund; and how a whole generation of great coaches aren’t getting the support they need. Hopefully, they’ll fix this and fix it soon.
