Michelle Larcher de Brito has apparently retired and opened a pet hotel business in Bradenton, FL.

Leander Paes, 45, is considering trying to extend his career to the next Olympics.

33-year-old Teymuraz Gabashvili, once ranked 52 in the world, has falled all the way outside the top 450.

Jesse Witten is still at it, the Floridian who once won a set off Novak Djokovic at the US Open has won a match at the Lexington, Kentucky Challenger this weekend.

Mikhail Youzhny has said he will retire at the end of this year.

Former USTA Eastern Section junior star Gail Brodsky, who took nearly four years off of pro tennis (2012-2015) to give birth to two babies, won her biggest career title this weekend – the $60,000 event in Ashland, KY.

    Do you know who dropped who? Harry or Russell? Geez, Sanguinetti has coached a lot of players since he coached Spadea. He was with Sugiit’s for a long time. Can’t believe Marty Marty Fish can’t score a coaching job and Robbie Ginepri can.

    Russell would not resign with no job to go to. Harrison decided to bring in Sanguinetti who worked for years with Asian players.

    Russell did not seem to help Harrison’s results at all, mediocre results under Russell. Don’t think Russell deserves the blame for Harrison’s mediocrity this year but that’s the business, you’re hired to get results and Russell didn’t generate anything noteworthy with Harrison. Hopefully Russell will get another and this first job flop will not haunt him because he surely is a very knowledgeable tennis mind and he has a lot to offer.

    Scoop I broke the scoop on Iron Mike getting the boot though I had no idea Sanguinetti was his new guy.

    Scoop did scoop me on the birth of Nadia Petrova’s baby however!

    Big mistake by Harry today to win the first set. Never go away from a winning formula!

    A note on tomorrow night’s big match: Everyone remembers DY beating Stan at the Open. Stan has won all three meetings since but none in straight sets – two three-set wins and a four-set win at the Open. It’s well known that lefties give Stan trouble – see his records vs. Verdasco, Lopez, Mannarino, Mischa Zverev. He’s about .500 against those players.

    DY has a major chance in this one.

    Meanwhile, how about Basilashvili losing 6-0 sets in both the semis and final of Hamburg and prevailing. Can’t imagine that has happened before.

    Dy Is gonna get smoked by Stan, that’s a guarantee. How about Berretini winning hsi first title, saw this Italian battle Tsitsipas to late in the third set last year at US Open qualies, he lost that match but now he’s won his first title, The Greek still hasn’t won a title yet or made a final. Berretini is one to keep an eye on, very good player. Impressed by Basilishvili too, quiet low key no media recognition under the radar guy but now he’s an ATP champ. I liked that story on ESPN today by Brad Gilbert saying he won three titles and the tournament went extinct after, BG’s win put those tournaments on ice like a “cooler.” Basilashvili is the type of low key grinder who could put a tournament on ice too. No disrespect but he doens’t sell tickets.
