Excited to have spent a week back at the academy again. Im proud of the whole coaching team there and i always get very inspired when im in the environment out there.
I have been on the court with Luca and Daniel as they are preparing for Marseille ATP and Cherbourg Challenger. Daniel is ranked 127 at the moment and i feel like he has put himself in a position to play well in the upcoming months. Luca and him is very dedicated and professional.
There is a lot of things happening to the academy now with the development of the new sports facilities just outside Stockholm. Nicklas Kulti is the project manager for the center and he is doing a great job with that. The objective is that our new facilities will be ready 2017.
The academy also have a new CEO in Mikael Stripple. A very humble man who has a very impressive CV. He has worked in tennis for so long. College in the US, Head of the Federation, worked in a club and at the highest ATP tour level as a coach for Thomas Enqvist. Very impressive resume indeed. Respect and feels great to have his expertise involved going forward. There are a lot of new things/projects planned in the new center and he has all the knowledge to do a great job with that.
Bandy season is over for me as well. Little bit sad but that how it is. Last match for me played on Wednesday. We played Huddinge and happy that i didn’t end up with a concussion and a scar in my face as i did the last time we played them:) Haha.. Scars will go away but points will stay, as a teammate expressed!
Off to a meeting with the new CEO of Good to Great now. Hope you will have a nice Friday!
