JARED DONALDSON talks TENNIS with CRAIG SHAPIRO_URCS040

In 2018 Jared Donaldson was 21 years old and in the top 50. Then injury struck. Now, after a successful surgery and a year on the DL, he’s about to come back.

Jared has posted wins over Tsitsipas, Goffin, Raonic and Bautista Agut and he’s been across the net from nearly every man on the tour.

As a kid, Jared moved from Rhode Island to Argentina in order to improve his game on the red clay. While there, he practiced with top players like Diego Schwartzman and Guido Pella.

After a solid junior career, Jared was the only American to be part of the first Next Gen group that included Coric, Shapovalov, Khachenov and Medvedev.

Rhode Island’s Finest JARED DONALDSON tells the story of how he went from losing the finals of Kalamazoo all the way to the third round of the US Open main draw. He also offers a candid assessment of the up and coming men on the tour. And he offers a unique inside look into how players deal with injury on the tour.

Recorded June 4, 2019. Released August 12, 2019.

ANDRÉ SÁ is one of the most likable guys on the tour. And that’s probably why Tennis Australia recently named the Brazilian head of player liasons. Before that, he had the same job with the ITF. And before that, he had an impressive professional career, beating Mark Phillipousis, Andy Roddick and Feliciano Lopez and is part of the illustrious final 8 club at Wimbledon.

He spent 5 years at the Bollettieri Academy, coming up with the likes of Tommy Haas and Max Mirnyi. And as a doubles player, he won 11 titles and a gold medal at the Pan American Games.

On this episode, Brazilian stalwart, ANDRÉ SÁ explains what next year’s “Summer Down Under” will look like. He tells us what got the cab drivers in Brazil to realize that a tennis racquet was not just a small guitar. And he tells the story of what it was like to challenge Great Britain’s greatest hope on center court of Wimbledon.

PATRICK MOURATOGLOU talks TENNIS with CRAIG SHAPIRO-URCS033

PATRICK MOURATOGLOU is steadily becoming one of the major players in tennis.

Best known as Serena William’s coach since 2012, Mouratoglou is also a TV broadcaster and the head of one of the most renown tennis academies in Europe.

He got into the tennis coaching business with the legendary Australian coach Bob Brett. Since the late 90’s, he’s been instrumental in developing players like… Paul Henri Mathieu… Sergi Stakhovsky… Laura Robson… Marcos Baghdatis… & Grigor Dimitrov.

The Mouratoglou Academy has steadily become a destination for top caliber juniors and professionals. And during the clay court season, The Academy is a French refuge for the pros, allowing for them to both decompress and bone-up in preparation for Roland Garros.

One of his initiatives, Team Mouratoglou singles out rising stars for exclusive training. Thus far, Team Mouratoglou has included Coco Gauff, Jason Tseng, Alexei Popyrin, Rudolf Mollecker and Stefano Tsitsipas.  

PATRICK MOURATOGLOU explains his approach to coaching and explains why he never uses a contract. He reveals which Frenchman he thinks has the best chance of winning the French Open. And he offers insight into what he thinks might be behind some of the latest coaching shake ups on the women’s tour.
