So it’s Sunday night and I am watching 1993 movie Rookie of the Year as I type this blog… you know the movie, before Gary Busey became certifiably nuts, Home Alone star Daniel Stern directed & starred and Thomas Ian Nicholas as a super cute kid pre – American Pie status….
Guess it’s only fitting to watch this…… the movie is described as a Chicago boy who miraculously receives the gift of a powerful pitching arm to become a major league pitcher…. well, every pro tennis player at one point was seen just as someone that had a special gift….. a big serve or great hands or tactician…. every athlete dreams of making it to the big time…. to have that breakthrough moment and have the admiration of all…
And almost every Grand Slam there seems to be someone who surprises us, elevates their game and captures our hearts… and perhaps becomes the ‘NEXT’ tennis superstar…. David Goffin was probably that great story at the French Open. Who will it be for Wimbledon?!
There is definitely some great potential out there and it is always fun to see who can take it to the next level and go from gifted to great. We will be keeping a close eye on our Next Gen’rs in the first round, Laura Robson, Kristina Mladenovic, Arantxa Rus, Andrey Kuznetsov, Vasek Pospisil, Guillaume Rufin and many more…..
Would love to see these players reach their potential and become household names around the world!!!
GO WILSON NEXT GEN!!!
