Another Honor for Lendl

Ivan Lendl has left his mark on the Monte Carlo Masters after the tournament immortalized his right hand print in plasters as the clay Masters 1000 added to its own version of a Hall of Fame.

 

 

 

Changes Ahead for Llodra

France’s Michael Llodra has made it official – he has hired Stephane Simian as his coach. Emmanuel Planque and Guillaume Raoux previously coached the lefthander Llodra. While on tour, Simian was coached by Thierry Tulasne, among others.

 

 

Haase is Delighted to be in Monte Carlo

Robin Haase is reveling in first-world conditions in Monte Carlo after suffering through the filth and squalor of a Casablanca locker room which could be the a topic in upcoming ATP board meetings.

The Dutchman complained on his blog of vile and unsanitary conditions at the minor 250-level tournament held in Morocco. Haase lost in the first round in North Africa but still got a (dis)taste of tournament conditions which would surely be distressing to the board.
