You Catch More Flies With Honey...

Now that he has announced that he is gone as of December 2008 more is coming out about the why of his departure. Thanks to Tennis Week's Richard Evans we have the following information about the departure of Etienne De Villiers from the ATP.

Charming one minute, he could blow a gasket the next. Staff below the executive level were afraid of him; players who were only trying to put forward alternative opinions were shocked at being yelled at and the leaders of other tennis organizations such as the ITF and Grand Slam chairmen quickly tired of his outbursts.

From this article by Peter Bodo at tennis.com it appears that Johnny Mac's dad is interested in the position -- and from the article, it sounds like he would be a good choice.

Read that. I agree. What may work against him is that he is American and the Europeans and South American's may not go for an American in that position right now.

I read the article as well and I have to say that I agree with Savannah, dont think the players from Europe and South America would be in agreement with him as a pick.
