Hope that you have a wonderful Sunday. We have been in New York the past few days preparing for the US Open starting on Monday. The weather has been really hot and humid so its been a great few days here for training. The facilities and service for the players in New York keeps improving for every year. This year the talk of the tournament is the new Grandstand court. And after the tournament this year the USTA will start the construction of a new Louis Armstrong stadium as well. With a roof. Its just amazing what kind of facilities that the Grand Slam federations have. Not to talk about the budgets that these countries have for player development.
This week we have boys from the academy competing in Canada ITF grade 1 together with coach Peter Carlsson. I really want to credit the boys Jonas and Karl as well as the whole team at Good to Great Tennis Academy for an amazing effort to have these Swedish boys in Canada this week (and the US Open next week). This has been made possible by the team sponsor Catella, by hard work from the players and the great passion from coach Peter throughout the whole year. Catella has given the team the possibility to play and compete together the whole year. The have played mainly outside and been on the road a lot together. Hats off to everyone involved and keep working hard! This is hopefully just the start of a great journey!
Hope you will enjoy the US Open the next couple of weeks!
All the best, Magnus
