Hello all,

Today I went off site on the clay courts with Caroline Wozniacki and her team. Since most of the players will start playing clay court tournaments, we looked for courts in Key Biscayne. Caroline was working on getting used to sliding again. My colleague Sven Groeneveld did some exercises with her. We had two sessions with her. Doing drills, hitting lots of balls, 2 on 1s with Jean Rene Lisnard and me.

Movement on clay is very important, and the better you move the better you get in position to hit a good shot. Therefore it’s crucial to work on this important part of your game.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga beat Jarko Nieminen today in straight sets. Tsonga who has been working with Roger Rasheed for a couple of months now looks like he is playing very solid tennis at the moment.

He is getting ready to face the German veteran Tommy Haas. What a great effort by him actually! He is playing Top 20 tennis and has had so many good results over the last months!

Enjoy the tennis!
