"Next to people who own their own firms. And I always encourage people, even if you are not going to go pro, stay as connected to this game as possible, because this is like the top tier of wealth and business people. This and golf, right? In the world. And if you want to stay close to the game, I think one of the things we can do better as a sport is like have a college tennis to careers pipeline of all the jobs that exist in tennis, whether it's commentating behind the camera agency. So you talked about when you got first got a chance to get to become an agent. They send you to the junior tournament. And Eddie Hur and orange bowl, Easter bowl. Tell me about that because I often, you know, I did what a lot of juniors and they said, come out, you know, I'm top 50 in the world, ITF, made a junior slam, won a couple rounds. How do I know? No one's coming and knocking on my door. To offer me half a million bucks. To try my hand at the tour. So when you go to your tournaments now, and I know you're like deep in the business. So you still keep a pulse on the next upcoming juniors as well. What do you look for and what advice would you give to a parent that's like, I think my kid's good, they haven't won a junior slam, but they're in all four. How do I know whether I go spend a year or two in college or whether or not I sign with an agency? I mean, it's a fantastic question. You're asking me, and I think it's actually twofold answer because I think you're weaving two questions into one, right? So first, let's look at from my perspective. So when I go to a junior tournament or when I see young talent, I compare it to buying a house. Have you ever bought a house? I'm sure you have. Ten. But when you go buy a house, you're going to go visit a house or you're looking at ten. And it's like, okay, is this house in the right neighborhoods? This is at the right lighting.

"And be not just the hottest, but the smartest as well. And get out there and be competitive. I think we'll get through. So yeah, we had Zach, I think of the semis of our tournament. Been Brandon, obviously mom is Austin. So it's in a jeans. And we're actually hosting the boys super national 16s over Thanksgiving. Yeah. Good to see. You know, the indoors who sort of comes out of that. Yeah. And then so we think about the USTA, right? And we think at USTA has gotten has managed to stay intact and actually do well in support these players. And we've seen, I mean, the man was happening with the man is like an example. How is that been? Because you are a private coach, traveling for a while, and then you obviously got married, had a baby. And now was it like now to be able to be at home, right? And work for the federation. And have a little bit more of a predictable lifestyle. Well, I've always my lifestyle voice for the most part traveled. Whether it's on the tour, I've done some ITF travel on the juniors. And fortunately, we've always had the training center, we would have had players and we've hosted camps, regional camps, and now being a little more with Taylor Fritz and with slower and Marty probably always committed to 20 weeks of travel year and I'm still doing the traveling, even though I have my daughter's 8 years old now and my steps on went to University of Washington, my stepdaughter is 14. You know, we love the job and certainly I'm home a little more, but when to your soap and went to Davis gap going back to Davis Cup, you know, I've still got some weeks ahead of me. So that definitely there's better management about being home a little more and trying to be the best dad that I can be.

"I think it's a little better than that. Yeah, I don't even think those numbers are equating, like when you say move academy wise, like in my head, the only thought that I think you could be an incredible, incredible college tennis player with chances to get and make possible moves in the pros, with staying home for the most part. I really do believe that. I think you can have a week or two here throughout the year that you go somewhere else, but to say to move an academy is really the only thought there is that, hey, my son or daughter has the real chance to make waves as a professional tennis player. Which, sorry to say, but chances are you're selling a daughter doesn't have that chance. When I've spoken, you know, when I look at every conversation I've had with parents, you know, there's not many of them that I really do believe have that chance. I mean, this is a we're talking about one of the most competitive sports in the world. So for them to say, hey, we're going to uproot our lives and spend all this money and make sure that they have all the chances in the world. You know, it's okay, you know, if the financials are there, but if they're really trying to sacrifice for it, I'd rather be in the conservative side. I really would. So talk about joining us and talk about knowing when is the right time. You want Wimbledon juniors. Yes. And the winner junior slam is like a dream for most. And when to me, the Holy Grail of tennis is a woman. That is just like our sort of most prestigious title, even though it's probably not the, you know, it's not New York. It's not U.S. open. It doesn't mean it doesn't mean the same thing. Ironically, when you ask an avenue, right? You want a U.S. open, that's like the Super Bowl. And that means more for endorsement dollars. In the states, then Wimbledon does, even though women is the most prestigious. So tell me how your life changed once you won junior windy. Yeah, I mean, again, I don't think a lot of people understood how my junior and professional career ebbed and flowed through my last two or three years. I actually reached my career high ITF ranking, which is for anybody that doesn't know I was 18 and under in the world, I wish that career high ranking when I was 15 years old. So I was 6 in the world a month before my 16th birthday. And at that point, I said I'm done with juniors. You know, I kind of got out what I thought I could, you know, could I have fought for the number one spot or it wasn't really, you know, something on my list at that time, we kind of moved to professional tournaments. I qualified for my first professional tournament. A month before my 15th birthday, you know, that's kind of where my career was was going. So, you know, I actually had even, I don't know, two years off, you know, without playing an ITF event, you know, I may have played one or two here and there, but I had about two years off until I played junior Wimbledon again. And it's one of the few things I give John McEnroe credit for because he hasn't had too much of a hand in my career to be honest with you, but he said, hey, you know, for us, for our club for you, play your last

"This is the green and I'm the publisher of telecom reseller and this is a special podcast for the ASC DI and TR publications. And today I'm with Florian who is the international business development manager for K and P computer. Florian, thank you for joining me today. Jeff, thank you for having me here. Well, I'm excited that we're going to be talking about this. It's a very timely talking about KMP. We're also going to be talking about green IT and canned peace leadership in this field. But before we get into that fluorine, what is K and P? Yes, the KMP computer are an international full IT service provider. We focus on our hardware maintenance solutions, for example, for service storage networking equipment that also reduce managed services like, for example, IT monitoring, Microsoft 360 five migrations or backup solutions, and talking a little bit about our history, so we were originally found that you can say as a reseller and tougher maintenance provider for IBM products in 1985. So already long on the market for more than 35 years. And since this, we have constantly expanded our business through several office locations. For example, in Germany and also in Austria, as well as many international partnerships, apart from this, you can say to mention about our history is that we have several business partnerships with measure OEMs like IBM or HP and Reese, of course, also strength from our path to become such a successful for our team, provider, and apart from this also interesting to know about our company is that in 2020, we acquired the blue consult group that is also offering managed services like, for example, cloud solutions, consultation for SAP or services in the area of the digital workplace like social intranet and this actually even expands our service portfolio from the pure TPM maintenance areas also more interval managed service area. So Florian, how do you at KMP define green IT? Yes, so redefine green ITF sourcing operation and disposal of ICT you can say in a resource saving or environmental frenzy wave. So a meaning with full life cycle in a sustainable way and apart from this also the use of ICT to four environmental protection, we also describe as green IT, so to different concrete examples, not only of specific like thin clients go into the area of prenatal but also something like home office because home office of course also leads to lower emissions for example because you don't have long driving distances to come to work, et cetera so this is something that should also be kept in mind regarding the topic of green IT and apart from this. The thing is that many companies actually still today still don't have the main person responsible for the topic of green IT and because of this very often you can say the right strategy to implement green IT in the company, even in the long term, you can say that the benefits for, of course, the run set, the environment, and also on the other side, the companies wallet are actually overwhelming and companies always have to keep that effect in mind and apart from this. Of course, green IT can also have to conserve resources, so if you look at the definition of green ITS, many aspects that you have to keep in mind. So for example, more durable heart rate or refresh pair or hardware reparation like the ones that we are also doing in our in-house test center can be computer. These are actually all solutions that can help to conserve

"Like, how can we get a practice core? You got 40 courts out here. Why can't I get one? Why do I have to share? It's beyond me. So that job of the managerial job to an extent is tuna degree out at those tournaments is as important as the tactics in the game and that kind of stuff. But it's important. It's important. It's just so much to it. That it wasn't that important at the challenge. It's not that important at the ITF. It's not that important that junior tennis. It's actually nonexistent at those places for the most part. You got a little bit to deal with, but very, very small. Like even the tournaments, it doesn't make sense to me like and I know it's for financial reasons, but it drives me nuts like give us a stipend for hotels. And I can stay at whatever hotel I want. And then I can put it next to a practice court. And I don't have to deal with this. Give us a stipend for a car. Stop, stop, stop sending me shop for shuttles, like give me a car, and I can make life.

Like, why do they know their past? And so that's one thing that's so fun for me is developing kits from scratch the way we do it, right? Like I see all the pro tour coaches jumping from player to player to player to player and like I'm watching that and I'm like, man, I don't think I could ever do that, like it's very much a managerial position and I don't look at it as coaching even and the way the torus set up and I've only been on it for a year and it's like there is a need for a managerial position because it is, it is the most chaotic, crazy. Like unorganized, just cluster of a mess, like I felt like life was so simple at junior tennis and challengers and ITF's and like so simple. And then I got to the highest level tournaments. I was like, these are the most inconvenient, most chaotic, most distracting, most not about tennis, I have ever been in, and I don't know how I feel about that. Like, I don't even know if I like it. I like the hotel that's nice. And I like the money and I like the crowds and I like the energy and I like the competition, but like the actual. Setup, right? The setup and that goes back to, you know, going to winter nationals at Arizona in a park at 60° at night and the kids have been on the court 8 hours that day and there's no referee on the court like the lights are bad. Do I really like this system, right?.

"We're just, can we curse on here? I mean, there were findings where to shoot posting. You know, that's what we're doing. And yeah, that's sort of my thing though, is that but I guess my question is, is that shit posting for the sake of shitposting or is it doesn't have nefarious underpinnings? Well, I think that's when we've got to go back to 2016. I mean, it's really hard to tell. But I think the lesson of the last half decade or so is that, you know, your best to take this stuff at face value. And I mean, look, certainly there are people who identify with the movement who have taken the movement's messages at face value. You had those three guys in Las Vegas who were planning basically a terror campaign in Nevada. Yeah, I mean, I think we're best with these movements to actually say, you know, yes, let's take them at face value. This is not a movement that is where every single loss member is potentially violent or a killer. Absolutely not. But then I think the honest is on those members to explain to us why they're prepared to associate with the movement that does have these outcomes. So yeah, I'm inclined to take them. Take them seriously if in doubt to take them seriously. But yeah, I mean, like you say, they have that kind of irony built in as a sort of defense against criticism, I think. Taking them at face value and taking them seriously. What it seems to suggest that they pose a public safety threat. I think that elements of the movement do, yeah, I think that this is a movement whose refrain. You're not constant refrain. So that this kind of drum beat of insurrectionary talk about taking on ITF offices and stockpiling weapons so that they can either avoid restrictions or defend themselves against government agencies..

"I think that's critical. If there isn't communication, if there isn't dialog, if they don't feel comfortable that they can come forward and get help or ask questions or get support or whatever the issue might be at the time. Then you're not going to get your arms around this. And you're not going to be able to help everybody in the manner that they should be. The other key element, I think, that really was a key element for us. It's evolved since Pam was playing two as the age eligibility rule where we again are catching and working with these athletes at a very young age. Tennis is a sport where they come into this environment very young. And I think we've seen the benefits of that of that initiative as well. So it's a combination of all of those things, not just one. It's all of those things that continue to, to help us evolve this very important program. What about on the non player side of things? Because one of the things that struck me about Pam's story and sort of quite universal element of it is the fact that when you're in that situation, you might not recognize it as unhealthy or abusive, Pam talked about the fact that at the time she wouldn't have used the term abuse, but now it's only with the benefit of reflection that she sees that situation for what it was. Yeah. Well, look, the whole area in this one and it's obviously one of those unique spaces. Because it keeps expanding. It used to be based upon abuse was a sexual, was a physical, was it some other form of verbal abuse, et cetera. It's also now evolving into psychological areas as well. And emotional areas as well. So it's continuing to expand, which is fine. And that's healthy because we're truly getting to all of the areas that create issues for people, which I think is something we have a responsibility to try to address. You know, I think that the key here is, and one of the things that we're looking on, especially from an education standpoint, is that as our teams and the amount of people in the environment have grown, we are looking at some programs where obviously as people get credentialed and get approved to come on into the environment. They'll be different forms of education that they'll have to complete before they could become accredited. Based upon the category, and I hate to use the word category, but based upon what they're coming into the environment asset coming in as a coach, are you coming in as a trainer, you come in as a mental health person just to support person. I mean, they'll be different forms of education that they're going to have to go through to make them aware of the issues and the concerns in this space. Before they can be accredited. So it's a program we're working on. It's not complete yet, but we hope to have it implemented. Hopefully, as early as the start of next year, that becomes not just generic, safeguarding, information, and education that you traditionally see, but more specific to certain areas so that we can hopefully again make people more aware and educate them and hopefully continue to manage this situation because there will always be there. The question is, is how do we manage it and how do we deal with it? Yeah, permit Pam mentioned to me some safeguarding developments that she'd been made aware of within the WTA that were planning to launch at the start of next year is that what she would have been what she would have been referring to. It could be. I mean, there's a lot of initiatives that are out there that we're working on as we speak to and these could have been the areas that she was referring to. But we will continue to evolve them and continue to explore them. And continue to work on how do we how do we bring the entire tire sport together as well, because our athletes go in and out of different groups. We have ITF players that place my TF events and then come into WTA events. We have players that play in the grand slams and WTA events. So we're going in and out of a lot of different areas. And so it's something that we need to and we're working on as to how do we continue to create these programs that's consistent through the entire sport platform versus just being a WTA effort or just being an ITF effort or just being an ATP effort. And we're having a lot of conversations in the sport to see how we can how we can bring everybody together in this very important space. Just finally that on that, one of the things that strikes me is that while it's obviously very important to have the reporting channels available to players into coaches for those that might be involved in those sorts of relationships, what about external reporting if those within those relationships might not recognize them at the time for what they are are their channels for concerned external parties to report and for that to be acted upon? Sure. Yeah, no. Look, we're not going to ever close the doors to information that can help us address issues. I think if you're going to go that way and.

"That's what an IT does. If it can't be put back into productive use, the second thing he does is he disposes of it, but he disposes of it in an environmentally proper fashion. Now, one of the actually big news items that happened during the pandemic is you guys launched an iPad website. We did more and more of our members are becoming it more and more ITS are trying to join a CDI. And I say try and because not every company that applies to be a member base is approved. We go through a pretty strict vetting process. We quiz our members as to a company's performance. And then if they pass those tests, they become members. But we started a website called I Ted certified. And the idea is to become a resource for not only for resellers, but end users. If an end user is looking for an ITF, for example, who can wipe the data clean on their thousand laptops in North Dakota, they can go to IT certify and find them. Now, like I said at the beginning, it seems like all of a sudden the secondary market has more currency than it had before. There's more need for it and we're also hearing about better prices on used equipment. Well, for a couple of reasons. First of all, supply chain. New equipment is hard to find. So if you can't find a U, you knew you buy it used. That's what's driving up the prices, but what's making the secondary market more relevant than ever before is all the things that we've been talking about is data security data privacy and protecting the environment. And that's the role that our industry is playing today. We're making sure that this equipment is ending up in advance though and customers data is not ending up on the dark web. If I'm after all these years, if I'm out there as an independent use equipment dealer or a new equipment dealer, why should I think about joining up the a CBI finding out more about it maybe attending in the bank? Well, if you want to stand out from the crowd, there's a plenty of companies out there and good companies who can buy and sell your hardware. But what happens when things go bad? Where do you go? If you're never based, I have a place to go. We are ethics process. Make sure that the customer doing business with an ACI members is protected. So if you want to stand out from the rest of the crowd in the secondary market, you want to carry that ACI logo, but I warned people that are listening to this podcast, not everybody qualifies. Companies that don't honor their commitments shouldn't waste their time applying for membership in ACI. Now, there's some additional benefits. We learned this afternoon, for example, do some pretty good lethal resources available to members. We do again. We have lots of legal resources, and we're expanding those. For example, I test. We've talked a lot today about ITS. I tend to have different legal needs than a typical reseller. For example, an ITS committing to a company that their data is going to be protected. But what happens if that data ends up somewhere? What does he do? So he needs some terms of conditions in his contract. ACI is developing those terms and conditions. He needs special insurance. ACI is working with a couple of insurance companies to.

And she's definitely got involved in that as well. But Joel, another British player who actually did better than ever had a cardi. Harriet dart as a qualifier, beating, not only Anna Konya in the first round, but spital Lena and then kaya can epi, which has got to be some of her biggest wins of her career. I know he's fiscally as the first top 20 win of her whole career. So absolutely fantastic, you know, battling through from Harriet dart there. Fell short against Madison keys in straight sets, but you know, I think she's absolutely done herself really proud this week with all her efforts. Yeah, absolute landmark moment, I think, in her career. I think for British fans like myself, it did feel like when was this moment when was this moment going to come? I think we've seen it sort of happen already for like Katie balto and it felt like, you know, in that next line, Harriet dart was going to be the one that you were just sort of wondering where it was going to happen. She's been on some, you know, she's been playing again really, really good tennis recently to come through qualifying all the way through to the quarterfinals should be absolutely chuffed with that. Yeah, I mean, I think now press on and get up into the top 100. And I think with this competition, it'll just give her great belief that the caliber of a play of the caliber of opponents that she was beating, the experience of someone like nappy, the ranking of someone like Lena Selena, it will give her that great belief that she belongs on the WTA Tour in she can be like, I think be like I have a Watson in the sense of being a player who plies their trade predominantly on the WTA Tour as opposed to kind of the ITF and futures and whatever else there is underneath the main tour. So I certainly think that is the transition that I think she's hoping to make and I think with these results, it will give her all the confidence that she can go ahead and do it. Yeah, definitely that is the next step isn't it to be consistently in the top hundred consistently not needing to qualify for slams and he's playing more of the top events so you're not on that level below. Absolutely. Hopefully this gives her the confidence to go forth and do that. Let's look at the bottom half of the draw because we've got two quarter finals happening this evening. Zachary, as I said, she is a set and a break up. Yeah, a game away actually. It's kind of disconcerting watching it because both her and Robert kina are wearing exactly the same outfit, which is always fine kind of annoying. Why don't they ever, why don't they ever coordinate? Or why don't the why doesn't the brand ever coordinate or the sponsor? Or can't there just be a WhatsApp group, but it's like, are you wearing this today? Or, you know, instead of like black top and colorful skirt, the other one could wear colorful top, black skirt. I think it's that geometric Adidas skirt that you weren't a fan of Joel. They're both wearing that. I quite like it myself, but it's just, yeah. Well, it seems to be working for saccharin and not working for ri bikini 'cause saccharin looks like on her way to the semifinals. Yeah, she's been playing some pretty good tennis this week. She's just kind of going through the matches, she had a good win I think against kvitova and Darius savill as well. So yeah, another semifinal, see what she can go on from here, but she'll face the winner of and could a metaverse. Kim is the reigning champion, could a metaverse been playing some really, really good tennis. I mean, she was playing great tennis, I think, against Naomi Osaka that got a little bit overshadowed, which will come on to. And Kinect in some really, really good form. I mean, but also had a really, really good, straight sets win against Fernández, which I thought might have gone three sets. I thought there might have been an upset on the cards there, but yeah, again, these both of these players are in really, really good form at the moment. I mean, bodos has never lost a match in Indian Wells. She's 9 and O. She won it. She won it last October. And yeah, she's going from strength to strength to strength, and she's actually possibly one of, I think, three are women, both John tech and Zachary as well as bedo, they could finish as the new world number two, depending on how results go, which would be a career high for all of them. But data is also trying to become the first women to defend the title since Navratilova in 1990 and 1991. So yeah, it's not easy to defend an Indian Wells title, especially not twice in what 6 months, I suppose it would be. So we'll have to see how she gets on. And could a metaverse, her head to head against bodos. It's three O to metaverse. So it feels like it's maybe stacked a little bit against the rated champion but also going in and you're looking at the head to head, but yeah, given the way that she's playing, I said, watch some of the highlights of her match against Fernández. I do quite I do quite fancy a kind of coming through that given her, yeah, I think almost like Grigor Dimitrov, yeah, just loves the conditions of the desert. And I mean, let's go back to that coup d'etat of Osaka match because coup d'etat won it in straight sets. It was 6 love 6 four. But it did get overshadowed by the heckling from the crowd, a spectator shouted Naomi, you suck and that was, as she went to serve at the start of the third game, Osaka was in tears..

Who liked dirty as strem skirt in Lyon, who will talk about in a moment was playing for something more than herself and was very much embracing that in Monterey this week and on Monday of last week at the start of the tournament she posted a very powerful statement asking for a clear position from Tennessee's governing bodies, the ATP, WTA, and ITF, she said, were Ukrainian players requested requested to the ATP WTA ITF to follow the recommendations of the International Olympic Committee to accept Russian or Belarusian nationals only as neutral athletes without displaying any national symbols, colors, flags or anthems accordingly, I want to announce that I will not play tomorrow Monterey or any other match against Russian or Belarusian tennis players until our organizations take this necessary decision. I do not blame any of the Russian athletes. They are not responsible for the invasion of our motherland, moreover, I wish to pay tribute to all the players, especially Russians and Belarusians who bravely stated their position against the war, their support is essential. And there have been more of those this week who have done just that Anastasia pavlyuchenkova has spoken out quite strongly Victoria as a rancor as well. Of course, Belarusian athlete that came in advance of Switzerland is scheduled opening match in Montreal against the Russian Anastasia Potter pover, which she did end up playing, and that was because his statement was very quickly followed by a joint statement, stopped the presses, folks, tennis, made a joint decision all of tennis 80 WTA ITF and for the foreground slams. It literally only took the potential outbreak of World War three for them to do. They have said a deep sense of distress shock and sadness has been felt across the entire tennis community following Russians in Russia's invasion of Ukraine in the past week. Our thoughts are with the people of Ukraine and we commend the many tennis players who have spoken out and taken action against this unacceptable act of aggression. We echo their calls for the violence to end and peace to return the safety of the tennis community as our most immediate collective priority and they announced that they stand united in their condemnation of Russia's actions and as a result are in agreement with the following decisions and actions. The WTA and 80 people have made the decision to suspend the WTA and ATP combined events scheduled this October in Moscow. The ITF board has made the decision to suspend the Russian tennis federation and Belarus tennis federation membership and to withdraw their entire entries from all ITF international team competition until further notice. Bear reminded that Russia are the reigning Davis and Billie Jean King cup champions and they say this action follows the cancellation of all ITF tournaments in Russia and Belarus indefinitely at this time they say players from Russia and Belarus will continue to be allowed to compete in international tennis events on tour and at the grand slams. However, they will not compete under the name or flag of Russia or Belarus until further notice. So we had sufficient reaching the quarterfinals in Monterey and in Lyon, we had the only strom skirt who would receive that wild card after fleeing from Ukraine with her 15 year old sister. She reached the final in Lyon and she lost out in three tight sets to Zhang shuai in the final just extraordinary stuff. Zheng was a breakdown in the decider actually and a brilliant win for her. That's her third career title. But the story undoubtedly is Danny's who I've seen doing a lot of media interviews this week she was on the no challenges remaining podcast. I saw her on British morning television this week, you know, she's using her status and her platform to speak out and raise awareness and it's all it was impossible not to be moved by what she was doing in Leon this week. It was incredibly upsetting at times, but invariably moving. And I was trying to find the right language to describe what she did. And you know, you sort of instantly reach for things like unbelievable and extraordinary and can't get my head around it, but actually I find it really, really believable because if we know anything about sport and how it functions in the world and how sportspeople function is that very often when players are playing for something more than themselves, it does focus on the focus the mind and make something extraordinary possible. I think it was just as likely that she would have lost extremely one sidedly in the first round, but what was least likely what was less likely than her having this extraordinary week and playing brilliant tennis with her just sort of having a middle of the road or mediocre week. That would have been in many ways more unbelievable. It doesn't really surprise me that in extraordinary circumstances, she has done something quite extraordinary. So I'm trying not to reach for the sort of lazy. Oh my God, it's unbelievable. I can't get my head around it because I think actually a really can and I'm not saying in Hershey's I'd have been able to play WTA final level tennis, but I do get it. I do get it. It's brilliant, but I understand it. Yeah, but both she and Switzerland dug into themselves and tapped in to this incredible emotion that they were feeling and I really felt for them trying to make sense of it all. I feel for everybody in this situation, of course, but they are our yardsticks, aren't they? Because their tennis players and we cover this sport, but I've never seen early in his fertile look like that at the end of a tennis match, the look on her face, the sense of pride and urgency and desperation to do something positive for her country and to be able to tell everybody how wonderful she thinks her country is and how much it means to her and how heartbroken she is at what's going on over there. Both players wrapping themselves in the yellow and light blue flag of Ukraine at the end of every single match and it was extremely moving and their opponents as well. I felt all the way through their runs were had words for them at the end and they were sharing in it. They were struggling with it, I suppose, in their own way, because there has been such solidarity, I think, at these tournaments, and yeah, your strom skirt given the journey she'd made over that two day period to get to Lyon and perform like that. I mean, she won two of those matches deep in the third set three hours plus and two and a half hours just to get to the final, then it was 6 four in the third at the end. It would be the hard thing is that she did all that and whether she'd won a lot, lost, there's no happy ending to this. This is the world has changed so much now in the last two weeks. And yeah, I hope that they are going to be able to continue playing tennis and having it help them channel and maybe distract them a little bit or at least find ways to cope with what is such a difficult situation a little more easily. And I believe she she's received a wild card hasn't she to wind your mouth. There was the announcement today that withdrawal has meant that Naomi Osaka gets in by direct entry. So I mean, I'm sure your strengths could have received a wild card anyway. But that frees up an extra world card and she's first name on the list, I suppose. To receive that World Cup and I'm sure she'll receive them wherever she needs until her ranking gets up to a place where she no longer no longer requires them. So that was a WTA logic event in Lyon. We also had on the men's side of things, Davis Cup ties..

"Yeah, but I was good at raising money. And I literally went to our investors and I sold them on the idea. This was the pitch. Everyone thought we had this master plan for blockstream. That we had some secret revenue plan to take over, keep block sizes small, so we could profit, we had no plan. I literally went to our investors, and I said, you need to look at Bitcoin as the Manhattan Project of the financial singularity. The world of finance will be completely remade with Bitcoin at the core. And it is literally like creating atomic fusion that Feynman and teller and Oppenheimer did. And the responsibilities and the ethics and the number of brains you need around that project to invent that financial singularity and to think through all of the follow on technologies because coming out of the Manhattan Project gave us the next 70 years of economic progress in the world, gave us computers. It gave us new forms of math, radio telegraphy, our skill graphene. You name it, the number of offshoot technologies, and the ethical implications, because all of a sudden you invented something that had the power or the could potentially in the wrong hands or misused, bring about the end of society. I mean, the man hamper. And so I literally said, we want to create the Manhattan Project of Bitcoin. Bring together all the scientists. I said we're going to need a shitload of money, and I have no idea how we're going to make money, but we'll figure it out. I want to 7 or 8 investors that I trusted, who had the vision, Reid Hoffman was one of them. LinkedIn? Yeah. Yeah. But beyond that, I mean, Reid and I knew each other. I had a relationship. He funded Mozilla and was on the board of Mozilla because Reid is very deep thinker. He had been there at the early days of the Internet. He was friends with a lot of the guys from creative comments. They had done work on how do you design the protocols of the Internet to keep it out of the United States hands when the ITF took over standards. And made it so that domain name space wasn't just controlled by the U.S.. When Creative Commons was writing the rules to make sure that not everything on the Internet could be copy written that we would have copy left and Creative Commons licensing. So read funded Mozilla to make sure that it wasn't just Google and Microsoft defining the standards of the web. And I knew we'd be a deeply ethical and long-term thinker. That's ultimately why we chose him to invest in the company. And it was never eternally grateful and never regretted that. And he actually helped us, like some of the other people we brought in, Danny hillis, was one of the original creators of some of these Internet protocols. He was there at the beginning of the Internet. And so we brought him very early on to talk to us and advise some of our people saying, okay, how do we develop? We don't want to create standards bodies because standards bodies go against Bitcoin. But how do we make sure that some of these things have some principles or some standard standards that follow kind of like the ITF loosely based consensus? So we were able to bring in some incredible people who advised us early on how to think through the evolution of the Bitcoin ecosystem and how to design that company and how to design and some stuff we did write some stuff we failed miserably at..

"Me, I gotta say or call me off guard when I first saw this week just because we have not seen it in tennis before. And I would sort of confused about it not being used at the grand slams, which are an ITF event. And if Russia is on bad terms with the ITF as a International Olympic Committee member, then I'm kind of surprised it wasn't effective or affecting them at the Grand Slam level as well. We didn't see like Daniel Medvedev when the U.S. open with RTF next to his name instead of our U.S.. So what do you know about this situation and is it going to end at any point? Is this a permanent situation? And were players there, you know, just calling them Russia because I honestly just inclined to call them Russia. I think I'll say my opinion earlier than you can answer this. I think this whole concept is stupid. I think either if you want to make an impact on Russia, to punish them, you ban Russia. You say Russia can't compete, but to let a team in that's all Russians and just use some code word for Russia that's very obvious that has an R in it that stands for Russia, you know? I just think it's pointless. I think it doesn't accomplish anything. But I'm curious what you think and what people around the competition think about RTF. I think you already answered everything necessary from a fan site point of view like it's bullshit in reality. But on paper, you have to do something because Russian got the quality band because of the quality of state orchestrate doping. It's effect. It's well researched by German journalist higher settled in 2015 with quickly though it would be good to get background. I know you know a lot about this topic. But I will say, none of the states wants are doping that we're aware of. Ever impacted tennis. Correct? Yeah, yeah. That's exactly the point. So on the one hand, you have to. Stay doping with a lot of examples but obviously a lot of athletes who are still clean not not have any doping violations. So what to do about this? It's a very tricky situation with a blind spot. I wrote about it before the ATP cup this year for a site online. And the main thing you already mentioned is only the ITF is also bound by the vada coast, the most important code in the global and the doping code. And the Billie Jean King that cup now, and the Davis Cup are the only team events organized by the ITF also the krantz lamps are organized by the ITF, you know that. But the problem is, they call it as a team World Cup event. And only there this rule is there. So they tried. It's not very clear in the roots. And they obviously excuse me because it's not my language. I could explain it way more better and German. So excuse me for but for that, but yeah, basically they don't accept the ATP cup as the team event by the ITF and only the ITF does all the doping controls in tennis. And that in turn is solely responsible for the anti doping fight and the test at all events including the tournament on the ATP tour such as the ATP cup because only the ITF is also bound by the vada coat the most important component and the global anti doping fight that's what I was writing in my article. One last thing I asked how Russia could start their team event the ATP refer to the ITF back then. It's still worth Miller, the longtime anti doping manager set in a mail back then, my opinion, the ATP cup is not affected by the cast decision, but it can cook up is therefore the Russian athletes can start as a Russian team of our prescription. And now they are starting as Russian tennis federation yeah. Yeah. So it's a blind spot. It's a blind spot. They are not also if you would be completely right like when is winning the U.S. open as a single player, you can't show the Russian flag, but yeah, it is what it is. I just have the concept that it's dumb. If you're gonna allow them to compete just admit they are Russians. I think that's sort of half step is silly. Briefly to finish this topic is what it says, actually on the Wikipedia page, I think they summed it up well for Billie Jean King cup. It says, in accordance with the band by the world ended up in agency and in December 2020 decision by the court of arbitration for sport, the team from Russia is not permitted to use the Russian name, flag or anthem, will participate in the 2021 Billy Jean King cut finals as the team of the Russian tennis federation. And we use the flag of the RTF, which the flag of the RTF is three tennis balls, red blue and white that look like a Russian flag. And also, if you look at the Olympics, the ROC team, which is wearing these track suits that basically were just Russian flags. It was like white on top and then blue then red. And so they were brought the flag with them. It's all, I think it's all just kind of farcical. It's on the line underlined what the ITF wrote me in January according to the ITF interpretation effect that these are the Davis Cup bleaching king cap the World Cup and beach tennis, for example, and the World Cup for wheelchair, which a player and then, at the events mentioned, Russian athletes are only allowed to complete as neutral athletes without a flag by anthem and the ITF does not see the ATP cup affected here either. I think you are the first person Yannick and NCR history to ever mention beach tennis on the show. By the way, it's an ITF always talks about we never ever hear anything about being so shout out to beach tennis, I guess. I want to ask about just your experience also on the ground in Prague. You were there. Like you said it was your first time covering a term outside of Germany. Since the pandemic began, what was the access like? What was the experience like as a reporter on the ground? I don't think there were too many reporters there..

"ALL RIGHT WELCOME TO TENNIS DOT COM podcast I'm one of your host. Nina Pantic joined as always with Reno, Falconi. Hey, guys. How's it going? Our special guests is w pro Sasha Victory Sasha welcome. It's awesome to have you here. You're just twenty five years old. You've been ranked as high as number seventy three currently around one fifty eight winner of three i-if titles, and you know you've been sounding off a lot on twitter. You've been on active on instagram. We have a lot of stuff we want to cover with you, but first of all. Where in the world are you? And how has the shutdown Ben for you? I'm actually at home in Boca. Raton Florida right now. and it's been really nice gone to spend time with my family but I'm kind of at the point where I'm ready to get back out there. Playing at you know practicing normal again. I love being home, which is such a great change, but I've just been trying to train as much as I can. just hit with some girls that are in the area, and that's pretty much it. Do. You have a coach right now that you're kind of working with is one of those things that you're slowly getting back into practice mode, or have you already been practicing a lot? Yeah I have I have a coach I work with. He's He's French and he's come down to work with me all the time. and yeah, just slowly getting back into it I played a couple of exhibitions in Atlanta last month I got to kind of. Play in a feel for where I was and be on court again. Play matches so been doing that. Was it wild without any fans and stuff like that. What's restrictions the same as kind of what we're expecting from upcoming tournaments? Yeah. I think probably exactly the same. It was really weird, and it just felt like I was literally playing a practice match. which is what which is what it was was it was? Very Weird. There was a there was one empire, but he was sitting Super Far Away. We couldn't really come that close futuristic on opposite sides. Side did kind of get a feel like what will be in the tournament coming up in. It was definitely a little strange. So one of the things that I've noticed with a few players and is their motivation. Level can kind of go like this enduring the quarantine. It's just been up and down. You know like we've been told two months two months from now two months from now. Yeah, what's your motivation been like for the last couple of months? Yeah well general motivation it is a little bit up and down with the tactic of the tour just in general, but for the past few months. Yeah I! Think the hardest part. was just you know knowing how much I should train like how much I should do if I should? Maybe less because I'll. Then I'll be more fresh when I start playing again or do more than I'll be. You know in super good shape, so it's just finding the balance between that. With no exact Kinda, start date and no calendar it's. Up in the air, so I'm just doing the best I can just like. Everybody is I'm sure? There's been somebody announcements about the tourist coming back in August and the US. Open has gotten some flak because there's not going to be a qualifying event at least as of now in June. Everything is changing by the day, but the initial initial plan is no qualifying. What was your reaction because it's kind of? A grossly unfair. Yeah no I'll just. I'll just speak really freely. I'll say I think it was the total slap in the face to so many players who depend on playing slam and you know that really depend on that. You know the competition and the prize money and you know everybody's been going through this rough time, but I just feel like. Prioritizing. The top players, which of course they deserve to be there. They deserve to play these tournaments but I just feel it was just really a hard low for the players that worked so hard to be in qualities, and they really depend on that time of the year for a lot in their career so I personally think it's it's a little bit unfair, and I think now. I read something where they're allowed to bring. Two or three people with them, so that potentially could have been an entire qualities drought. You would have just cut back by one person each flare so. I'm not obviously I. Don't really agree with it and I. Think definitely a little bit more could have been done for. The lower ranked players. I've also been hearing A few people talk about how qualifiers are still like. If you would have been in qualities, you're actually going to get a check yet. So what? What is what's the amount? Do you know the amount of that check? So I think like the first round qualifying. It's normally maybe ten thousand, five hundred somewhere around that range. But I've also read stuff wear. Maybe if we don't play, they may Give us some of the prize. Money I'm not really sure how it's to be I've been reading the W. T. updates that they email us every week. so I think that's the amount but I'm not really sure about the specific so what they're planning to do. From a personal level I'm curious. How excited are you to go back on tour? Not knowing that you know there's going to be not only changes Day In and day out, but just having the US Open like actually no qualifiers in the French Open I think there will be qualifiers yet. We still don't know really ITF Calendar. How are you excited to go back or part of us? Just like what the heck is happening. I think yeah, it's a little bit mix of both I. I am excited to get back playing, but you know like I said earlier just we have no direction really I don't know. There's no it calendars I. Don't know if I can start with the lower level tournaments and then play French Open they'll be a warm up or I. Don't know what's going to happen, but I think. I think the WPA T. A.. They have been doing a good job. You know trying their best to manage everything, but I think one thing that they've kind of lacked was update in the players. With things going like there I feel like they've been very favorable to the higher end players and they get information a lot quicker than we do like. I had to read somewhere on somebody's tweet. That wasn't going to be equality's before. We've got emails So you know a lot of people they start planning for that? You know they people need time to plan and prepare to arrange coaches. Book things so I think that's one part where definitely? They should try and do a little bit better.

Katrina Adams on making tough decisions

"Hear from former pro and former US TA president Katrina Adams. Okay Katrina welcomes the tennis dot Com. Podcast it is an honor to have you joining us today thank you. I'm happy to be here kind of want to start with the biggest the biggest news these days which is the kernel virus and how it's affecting all of us in large scale form and everyday forman in nine. Oh you mentioned that you are on self isolation. What is life like for you right now? It's pretty boring right now Being by myself in my apartment or been since Sunday night You know it's it's pretty. It's pretty scary as to what's happened in America and across the world But I was In close contact with someone who contractor buyer at a and Doubt on Monday or Tuesday that they were actually contaminated or or a heck and track with it And I've been in isolation fence fortunately I had cancelled a trip to Switzerland for my ICS board meeting Chose to come to New York and just do it by phone. Prior to any knowledge of of what has what has transpired so actually. I've been home since Sunday. Night was up at three. Am on Monday on the call. You know to Switzerland and for the next two days and and so it's just been. It's been quiet around here. I know you have a bunch of different job roles especially when I was trying to figure out and research your life story but one that stands out to me in this time right now and how things have gone and tennis in the past week is a VP at the ITF. So were you involved in that. Big Decision to cancel tournaments. Well we did have just mentioned. We had a board meeting That was in Switzerland on Monday. Tuesday Wednesday of which I participated by phone and the world of tennis is is Kinda turned upside down as the world of sport has so you know following a Lotta. The statements Indian Wells was the first tournament too close and Miami and then both tours made statements of Stopping event We made the decision to postpone a Fed Cup finals which is To be played in Budapest for the first time the second week of April. That's postponed to a later date and from an ICS perspective with The other many other hundreds of events that they operate around the world all of those cease as well in conjunction with The ATP and the WPA towards so I know that Obviously Italy is in just a state of crisis We have to mention that and I know China's one of the first places to be affected by it but here in America. Did you ever feel like no chance? It can be that bad like. Were you ever thinking like no ways is really going to actually affect the sports world or were you in a sense of? Oh My Gosh. This is really about to happen. And a bunch of tournaments are about to be cancelled and a lot of people's lives are about to be affected. Well you know what I'm an optimist and always think for the pie you think for the best but I'm also a realist And I'm literal so when this really started to unfold you have to think that it was only a matter of time that the sports world was affected. I think initially you know what we were looking at was the upcoming March madness events when they started saying that people shouldn't be in you know bigger crowds excetera and then you started looking at the NBA and then you realize that it affected more than just those arenas that affected all arena and it wasn't so much Just about fans and attendance. But what about the athletes and the players? They're the ones that are breeding all over each other. You know every second of the game almost And you have to think about their health and their well being and not just them the other thing about families who they're going home to At night so you know it's a trickle or a ripple effect on everyone and I think you know the decisions that have been made in the sports world as drastic As they may be. I think it's the best thing that has happened to. At least protect those athletes and their families and to at least to be owners of slowing down the transmission of Kobe. Nineteen so the three of us have something in common. We all played college tennis. And I know that there's obviously bigger storylines and not even talking about sports way beyond that but NCAA has been hugely affected. All these seniors are are not gonNA get their chance to end their year. So you know. I think you guys are both phenomenal. College players arena. Nci AS Katrina. You want and say doubles titles. I mean can you guys imagine having your senior year taken away from you not because of injury but because of something that's so far beyond your control and it's something that we haven't really talked about. Well I mean listen. It's it's disappointing an athlete You know who was collegiate athlete and champion as you mentioned to not See these young athletes be able to fulfill their dreams or at least you know play in their national championships. No matter what sports they may be an you know. I was supposed to call the tennis. Men's and women's tendency AA Championships Alonside Sam Gore And of course disappointed that we won't be going to tell the Oklahoma state this year To call the championships. Hopefully it'll be back You know in session in twenty one back at the USC campus in Orlando Twenty one but you know I just feel for the athletes. I filter the Seniors. Even more so those that you know this is their last hands to go to the to the dance to say perhaps win a national title and and have that on their resume for the rest of their life I know what it feels. Like to be referred to as a champion and you know my heart goes out to not to see athletes but the coaches the institutions and the families. You know everyone who's pour their heart and soul into getting these athletes to the best position possible

The ATP & ITF Have Cancelled The Tour For The Next Six Weeks

"Are not living in normal times. The coronavirus obviously is wreaking havoc across the world. It's up ending global markets in in whence once it became obvious that this virus was going to spread all over and is started to affect markets. And you had the the real fear right that it was going to be a lot more difficult when it came to large crowds right That's when it became apparent. I think that the sporting world in general not just tennis Obviously we're not just talking about Tennessee. I mean we are on this podcast but look every every sport in the world. is being affected by this. It doesn't matter whether you're talking about Baseball basketball. It doesn't really matter. I mean every sport for the most part is really being affected because as I said the other day when the canceled Indian wealth I said it was the right decision inlet. I thought they were going to cancel Miami. Obviously anytime you get a large crowd together you increase the fact that you're going to transmit this virus onto somebody else and you can take a crowd of ten thousand people in maybe two or three people in the crowd that have Krona Virus. And it's going to spread in it's going to spread quickly in those people are going to take it back to wherever they're from whether it be some other place in the United States or other places across the world and then they're gonNA infect the people it's just you know we all know this right. This is how you know anytime. You have any kind of the flu in a kind of disease that can be spread. That's what you want to avoid and so I was not surprised when they announced the cancellation of Miami. Today I was surprised when they announced the the tour was going to be canceled for six weeks. And which is obviously a big deal that being said. I think it was the right decision. So deep the press release from ATP chairman a Andrea Gdanski Said and I quote. This is not a decision that we take lightly into represents a great loss for tournaments players and fans worldwide. However we believe that this is the responsible action needed at this time in order to protect the health and safety of our players staff in the wider tennis community and JEN in General Public Health. In the face of this global endemic the worldwide nature of our sport in the international travel required presents significant risks and challenges in today's circumstances as do the increasingly restrictive directives issued by local authorities. We continue to monitor this on a daily basis and we look forward to the tour resuming when the situation improves. In the meantime our thoughts which is our with all those that have been affected by the virus in quote and look. I was surprised that this was the action that they took I really believed that. They're going to wait another week. Or two to see how everything was faring with the current virus and then make a decision kind of more on a week-to-week basis. But the reason I think they ultimately did this was twofold one. It was proactive. Right you you make the decision you say. Look we're GONNA shut this thing down for six weeks and that keeps players from having to figure out okay. Are we going? We're not going constantly on the edge trying to determine whether or not they're going to be playing a tournament next week And it also allows fans to cancel flights. Cancel Hotels Way In advance. Meaning they'll get all if not some of their money back It that way you just you take the guessing game out of the situation and obviously the ultimate result in all of this is to keep the current. Oh virus from spreading By hosting these events and then causing more people to get it and then you know to spread it to others and to pass away and you know. I've read some comments online You know once this was announced jumped onto a couple of websites and I was looking at the comments. And there's some pretty terrible ones honestly I'm not going to repeat them necessarily but but we have to remember here. Is that at? The end of the day is much as I love tennis. I Love Tennis I Love Sports Obviously there's other sports that I I Follow in cover quite a bit. It's still a sport right. I mean at the end of the day it's not life it's life and death Some things are more important and people's health living you know that matters This is is important. It is as much as I love it. It doesn't come close to the value of human life That's why you know when they were talking about whether or not to allow the Australian Open to go on earlier this year. I cancel the thing. You can't guarantee that these fires are not going to the winds not going to blow the smoke in the direction if you have people with Breathing conditions Did they may be fine. Otherwise but if you get smoke involved People could you know people could die? They might not be able to breathe in. Then you know that happens and it's tragic and even one person dying is is not worth it. So this here is something. Obviously that is It's terrible The roadhouse World Health Organization has stated that they believe. It's going to get worse before it gets better In that I think was a major factor. In fact I know it was a major factor in their decision and they were in contact with them. They they know what the prognosis worldwide. At least a general picture seems to be and what the expectation is. And so you know you got to make the decision and I said you've got to be proactive. And that's exactly what I think the ATP in the IT F- Have stated What their goal is is to work together. Cancel these events and then hopefully in six weeks. Things are better than they currently are. So what does this mean when I say six weeks right? So basically there are no challenger events there are no events at all all Challenge events will be cancelled. Everything will be cancelled from now. Up through Barcelona and the Hungarian open and Budapest. So we're looking at the cancellation of Miami The Faez Sarah Firm and company. Us Men's Claycourt Championships in Houston the Grand Prix Hassan in March the Rolex Monte Carlo Masters the Barcelona Open as before in Hungarian. Open Budapest so all those are are cancelled and all of the challenger events as well that go on as well between between now and then also be cancelled so again it one one hand. It's terrible right. You don't WanNa see the tennis world bended Like this This a lot of people that go to these events to look forward to it every year people that have never been to some of these tournaments who are looking forward to it as well But again at the end of the day it's a sport rate in in the thing that matters most really is people's health and when you put that at risk or if you could possibly put that a risk by holding these tournaments you have to Cancel it you have to do. What's in the best interest of the fans that are coming to those events? And if you were to hold these events and then the end result is that you contribute to the spread of the virus and a possibility of your Tournament in the spread of the virus because of it contributing to deaths. That's something you don't want It doesn't first of all it doesn't it doesn't look good right that you've said We're GONNA hold the event and you know. Oh well you know that. That's pretty cold and nobody wants to see that happen. It doesn't look good from from pure standpoint. Isn't that good from our morality standpoint? You know it just it. Looks Terrible. Sounds terrible nobody wants that. I don't think anybody on the ATP In the IT F. One to see that happen in. WanNa see that their actions had contributed in some way to you know this virus infecting and possibly taking more lives. So you'd be practice you say when a cancer for six weeks and then we're going to see how it looks and then we'll go from there. Look in six weeks as they get towards. You know the end date to that cancellation. If it doesn't look like it's getting any better more events will be cancelled you know. Romo be cancelled Madrid will be cancelled. And then obviously you have the possibility that Roland Garros could be cancelled. And maybe Wimbledon to. We don't know at this point Yeah there's a good chance that in six weeks things will be looking much and maybe the tour can resume but this is just A. Hey would doing this now. And then we're going to see what it looks like in then we'll go from there You might see something like okay if if things aren't better if maybe it's stabilizing but it's still not looking like it's really getting to the point where we've gone Run to the point where it's it's worse it's been at it's worst Then you might see them say okay. We're canceling Rome and we're canceling Madrid. And then we're GonNa see what

Alexander Waske: Tour Coach and Academy Owner

"High Alexander Functions. Tennis podcast thank you great to have you on board are I. Came across of the Alexander Voskan Tennis University as I saw on bags around some tournaments. I saw some coaches walking around two bags. I'd never heard of it before and I was always curious so I went off and did some research and this was last year so I've been falling ever since I've posted some your videos. I have you on our academy our top academy lists so it's great to finally speak to you. Thanks for that like just going to your resume. So you've worked with some cray players to pass speed caregiver meltzer Haas Bryan Curtis and even. Now you're working with some great players on especially let's say on the juniors who working with Yoenis four Tek who won grand slams last year such a great junior strokes are amazing anytime we posted on functional tennis. It's really amazing on. You're also working with a couple of the players on the Belgium Davis Cup team lower still lower Bella Mons on. Yeah few more. You're doing you're busy not me. We are a team here. So it's it's not me. We're working together with a couple of professionals here. So tennis coaches fitness coaches therapists. It's always a team effort here. Tell me cut me. Where's IT based in Germany? We Are Approximately fifteen to twenty minutes from Frankfurt Airport which is in my opinion great location as the International Airport. Gets you anywhere in the world and mostly direct flights? So you're in the center of Europe with Germany and Frankford is the center of or the middle of Germany so it's easy for us too excess anything here in Europe and even long fights I mean everything or usually everything has direct so we save a lot of time. By by this and also frankfort spend my hometown. So I've been I grew up here. I know the area Illinois everything here. So that's why we here. It's great to be in such a central. He'll be juniors playing tennis Europe term and Sir. Itf Tournaments Futures Challenges could hope to be. There's so much going on in Europe and also for the flights as you mentioned but tell me about Your Academy your facility. How many courts you have. What's your setup like? They're always thought of two thousand and ten. I started very very tiny. We had one player and one coach We built this from scratch. We are here working at the Federation. We have four. Indoor rebound ace courts we outdoor rebound escorts and then outdoors. We have also a five day. Courts we have a gym. We have ten rooms to sleep For people that come in for a weekly base now. We have other options for our long-term customers that can save an hour to you house. That is a bit outside of the sites and Ben. We have other apartments as well so everything is basically here on site visit therapy and everything that we need. The restaurant So yeah it's it's not the largest site we can't compare this to the large European academies like more talk no and Ross. We look for very high quality on our courts I think which even that so far I think the small academy the Smaller Academy sorry not too big more look more commercially cutting small and seem to have a better more family atmosphere on something you mentioned. Is You like to build character in the players? You work which can you tell me what you mean by building character with your players. You know if you're getting young people in here. Having a lot of influence has left rights errands media friends other players and so on at the end of the day. I believe that's building a good character and I'm gonNA come back to. That will make them successful people. Nobody can guarantee professional career of them making millions of euros in stuff like this but if they are hot working if they are focused if the discipline if they work hard on reaching their goals if they take a setback if they take a loss get back up on their on their feet and try it again and again and again and again. This kind of character will succeed in life so I think that our number one priority or our number one job is to create personalities that will succeed in life and then they will always be happy that they've been here No matter hulk with a end up in Tennessee great. And how do you do you give me an example? So we set clear rules It's also a lot about talking to the kids making them understand why we do certain things and for ten years. I've been busting my Thoughts to get an atmosphere here where everybody works hard and all the kids that we have now and I'm really happy about this really into getting better so you can always spend your whole day playing computer games. You can spend your whole day going out at night drinking Blah Blah Blah or you generate an atmosphere where everybody works hard and if there's one kid that does work hard the other kids don't want to practice with him because it's it's also for their benefits for their practice so I think that we Getting there that the intensity here is very high that there's a clear plan of how they play and that they really spend time with their game. They're strokes and a half to write a journal of what they've learned throughout the day. They have to visualize nights what they've done and the next steps that are there. We make individual plans for them. We make individual schedules and at the end of the day. You also need to have time for for the if you have fifty players to take care of at the same time. It's a zoo. So our coaches have four to six players that they take care of and I don't think that they can do more so that they have enough time to to talk to the plan to also know what kind of personality they are and what. They're struggling with what they're all right. Now tell me if somebody if I want to apply to come to your Kademi what you look for players that send you emails to say they. WanNa come train with you. What we don't do is we don't sign any contracts through the Internet. We don't do that. We have to meet the player. Find out if it's a fits. We want to see if we really like working with that player and at the other on the other hand the player has to tell. I mean usually. It's the parents that also behind this The player has to say this is where I WANNA be. This is the best place in the world. I don't want to go anywhere else and we can find a way but I I want to very very clear and strong commitment for this and this place is not perfect for everybody. I mean this other academies out there that are doing a fantastic job and Certain personalities will like this here and other personalities will prefer something else through your right if you try and fit everybody in. I think you're structures all over the place. I agree if you WanNa make you happy. You're going to generate a mess. They're going to have strict rules. I mean we are German so if you come one second late for practice your practice is over. It's it just doesn't happen you run for today. Yeah we also worked very early in the morning at seven thirty. We organized in structure. As Germs. Do Things and this is a strength. We are probably the worst dancers and other countries. Show us. How the Party will we? We're good at other things one of my best friends. Fabian is a chairman on definitely knows how to party. I didn't learn. Jeremy travelled a bit so definitely did a stint in the states. I think that's re- picked it up so you start early tomorrow to. What's a typical day so for your? Let's say for your teenagers. There's no real tip of the day because when you run a period as Asian you have weeks where you work really hard. And then you have weeks where you worked less and you regenerate more so we work up to ten sessions a week if the players practice full than they have a Monday and Tuesday where they have two sessions into fitness sessions on Wednesdays. They have Tennis session one session. Thursday Friday again to each Saturdays one tennis and Yoga. That's a tough week here but again we also have other weeks where we watched that the players are doing more mobility or region more stretching more. Physiotherapy it really depends on what's a but the week is planned for them. Take a lot of boxes there. The one thing I know. Is that the coaches care here. They really work hard. Some of them travel twenty to twenty five weeks a year with the players to tournaments. They really care. And that's what I really like Nobody here looks at the clock. All the time and says Lesson is op. I always say don't teach lessons. We coach players and different thing for me. So Time. Watching a bad characteristic. If two people are counting the time I know one player we feature quite a bit in the past two years is Yoenis four tech. He trains with you and he was world number one junior last year. One Grand Slams. How long has he been trained in? What you almost six years now. At that time we didn't really have a junior program and he was recommended to us and we had to look at him and I fell in love right away and I knew that this was probably the best hand eye coordination that I've ever seen in my life. So yeah just jump in there. Did you see the video with the wooden spoon? Yahoo hasn't I mean one of the most popular videos intenders. I would say so. You know what I'm GonNa send you a video just for you and you can post it on your side. Where he hits were the wooden stake now. Oh yes that is amazing. You can see on that. Looks like and then we have another junior now. Who's twelve and he was hitting really well with it and he did it with. Jonas and Jonas told me Alex I think the guy's better with a wooden stick me now because I haven't hit with it for a while so I think that was quite
