Sample text

We wanted the LTAA to provide suitable on-court and changing room amenities at tournaments; the toilets and showers were particularly primitive. We saw a need for more reasonable expenses to be paid to cover our basic living costs while we were on the road competing. And we felt umpires had to be provided for every tournament match; many times the lack of an available umpire had resulted in players officiating at their own matches. Other times, inexperienced people were plucked out of the crowd to umpire or be linesmen; we made very sure we didn’t hit the ball near the lines.

By getting your serve in and hitting your volley deep, by relentlessly returning your opponent’s best shots, keeping the ball in play, you wear him down physically and mentally. He encouraged me to put top spin on my forehand and backhand. ’ Top spin enabled me to hit my ground strokes hard but not too deep to a general area. Top spin carried the ball higher over the net. In rallies from the 16 Charlie and Hop baseline I always put top spin on my forehand, dropping the racquet head below the level of the ball and coming over it with a snap of my wrist.

There was a lot right, and a lot wrong, with the set-up then. I was told that once, when a couple of the designated LTAA tour selectors were assigned to run their eye over likely players, they went to a Davis Cup tie (series of matches) and became angry when they saw a couple of kids on the court and ordered them off. A bemused Ken Rosewall and Lew Hoad took their racquets and left. Unbelievably, if this story is true, the selectors were so distanced from the players, they didn’t even recognise the two best youngsters in the country.
