Many people have been speaking about German tennis lately. But since Stefanie Graf, Michael Stich and Boris Becker, no other German player has really been able to follow in their footsteps. However, being a German coach and player myself, in my eyes this is not the case. There are good German players out there, but tennis has become so much more physical than ever and now there is a big difference between “good” and “very good” players, and good doesn’t always correlate to winning a grand slam.
Take a look at the top German tennis players right now.
64 in 4 is how I would like to introduce the Polish up-and-coming super star, Jerzy Janowicz.
What could these number possibly stand for?

Since arriving in London I’ve been very busy. Although the weather has not been exceptional, I have managed to get a few good days of practice in. Unfortunately it has been difficult to find grass courts that are dry and in good shape. I had a practice scheduled today at the Hurlingham Club in Putney, but the fabulous English “summer” had other plans and its been raining for most of the day.
Hurlingham is supposed to have some of the best grass courts in the country, but because of the weather they’ve been closed and covered for the day. So today I am going to have to practice indoors and hope that I can come back some other time and experience the grass courts.
