Age irrelevant for Tsonga: Coach

Jun 16 2013, 2:20am CDT | by

London, June 16 (IANS) French tennis player Jo-Wilfried Tsonga's coach Roger Rasheed believes that there is a lot more left in his protege despite his rising age.

London, June 16 — French tennis player Jo-Wilfried Tsonga's coach Roger Rasheed believes that there is a lot more left in his protege despite his rising age.

"I know he's a 28 years old but I think the age of Jo is very irrelevant purely because he missed three years of tennis, [at] 19, 20, 21. He played five weeks each of those years. I think the number near his name is not really the number as far as tennis schooling goes. So he's a 24-25 years old in my mind as a schooled tennis player," Rasheed told the press at the Aegon Championships here Saturday.

Tsonga grabbed the tennis world's attention when he reached the final of the Australian Open in 2008.

The Australian coach explained that he is focusing more on fine-tuning the World No.7's shot-making, rather than making any drastic changes to his game.

"He plays very natural with a lot of flair and now we're just sort of shoring up his weapons. I'm just giving him a little more security in certain areas or just some understanding of a few different ways to go about his business at times," Rasheed said.

Tsonga entered the grass season at the Queen's Club on the back of reaching his first semi-final at Roland Garros this year where he lost to Spaniard David Ferrer.

"I asked him about that when we first started about how he deals with losses and he's pretty good. He will reflect on it but he will move on," said the 44-year-old.

Tennis will take center stage on the sports calendar one more time in 2014 with the U.S. Open. As the final major tournament of the year, as well as the only one to be contested on American soil, there will be lofty expectations for the big event.  Unfortunately, due to a lack of American stars on the men's side, it doesn't seem likely that any U.S. player will break the country's streak without a ...

The Sporting Wikipedia Hacks From Government IP Adresses

Jul 19 2014 1:02pm CDT | Source: balls

The annual Corruption Perception Index ranks nations “by their perceived levels of corruption, as determined by expert assessments and opinion surveys” and every year the nordic nations inevitably come out on top. Why are we telling you this? Because, finally we have an interest in the Scandinavian desire for transparency. Jari Bakken calls himself the lead developer of Norwegian parliamentary watchdog ‘Holder De Ord’. And while we fully appreciate the necessity for a government wa ...
