Melissa Errico Looks To the Rainbow
Huffington Post - about 1 month
Broadway star Melissa Errico is caught up these days in a juggling act. She's starring in Finian's Rainbow at the Irish Repertory Theatre in New York. She's also a regular performer on the national cabaret and concert circuits. There's even Oscar buzz for her rendition of "Hurry Home" a song she sings for the Jerry Lewis film, Max Rose. If her professional life sounds busy, she says it's nothing compared to her most fulfilling job---being mother to three young daughters, Victoria, 10, and 8-year-old twins Diana and Juliette. "Every day my life is like a talk show," Errico says. "I talk to everybody. You don't know how many friends I've met on planes. I just moved to another town---a small town in Westchester---and I love getting to know everybody. I had the whole town over for Christmas Eve." But after a day of running errands or to school functions, when the evening comes this Tony nominee steps out of her mom role and transitions to stage star. This past fall Errico re ...

On The Culture Front: Life And Times, The Encounter, Christine And More
Huffington Post - 5 months
What would it be like if we could actually experience what our partners are feeling? That is the question that drives the inventively conceived if thinly realized concept play "Empathitrax" by Ana Nogueira. The first fifteen-minutes fly by propelled by giddy anticipation, but like many pharmaceuticals, the high quickly flatlines and we're left with a dull sensation. There's a weariness that sets in halfway through John Ahlin and Christopher Patrick Mullen's intermittently absorbing character study "ChipandGus." The two playwrights also serve as directors and the title (and only) characters in this intimate two-hander. Almost all of the action unfolds during the course of a ping-pong game, which makes for great lively stage business. The problem is they try to cram too many dramatic peaks into a ninety-minute match resulting in forced and shallow catharsis. If instead of one match we saw scenes from dozens of matches over the decades of their friendship, then crucial information coul ...

Jimmy Connors Isn't There To Make Friends In 'This Is What They Want'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"I'm out here playing my butt off, 39 years old, and you're doing that?" Tennis great Jimmy Connors did not like it when chair umpires aggrieved him during matches. He especially didn't like it during the 1991 U.S. Open, where Connors, who ranked just 174 in the world before the Open began, made an unlikely and memorable run to the tournament's semifinals. "Jimmy was a guy who wasn't going to listen to authority. He questioned the whole notion of somebody sitting in a chair in judgement of him and his actions and his shots," Brian Koppelman told The Huffington Post. Koppelman directed the new ESPN 30 For 30 film on Connors' 1991 U.S. Open performance, "This Is What They Want," with David Levien, his frequent writing partner (the duo wrote "Rounders" and the recent film "Runner Runner"). "To Jimmy, this thing was a cage fight," Koppelman continued. "Cage fights shouldn't have a referee and neither should this. We were fascinated by him because of that. It's why the whole world was ...

Young American legacy of Williams sisters emerges
Yahoo News - over 3 years
By Larry Fine NEW YORK (Reuters) - The legacy of the championship years of the Williams sisters is beginning to emerge, with 10 American women now ranked in the top 100 and members of the younger set beginning to knock on the door of grand slam success. Tennis great Chris Evert sees major hardware within reach, while U.S. Tennis Association chief of player development Patrick McEnroe and U.S. Fed Cup captain Mary Joe Fernandez agree that U.S. women's tennis is once again very much on the rise. On Friday, 20-year-old Sloane Stephens beat Jamie Hampton in a third-round U.S. ...

Richard-John Mensing, Jr.: Calling All Young Athletes: American Men's Tennis Needs You!
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
Wimbledon 2013 was one for the record books. There was the good: Andy Murray became the first British men's champion in 77 years. There was the bad: Court conditions forced injuries leading seven players to withdraw on one day. There was the ugly: For the first time in 101 years no American man reached the second week of the tournament. Yet, it was the record-setting 4 hour and 43 minute Men's semifinal that proved most telling when it comes to what American men's tennis is missing and what it needs. In a word, athletes. Novak Djokovic, the world's #1 player and easily the best returner in the game faced the 6'6'', big serving Argentine, Juan Martin del Potro. In a match many now consider to be one of the most physically demanding ever played at a major -- it had everything: deft shot making, spectacular gets, exhaustive baseline rallies, booming serves, and huge momentum shifts. As the match approached its fifth hour -- Djokovic emerged victorious -- his ...

Len Berman: Top 5 Sports Stories
Huffington Post - about 4 years
TGIF everyone here's my Top 5 for January 25, 2013 from Len Berman at www.ThatsSports.com. 1. Quick Hits Novak Djokovic will go for this record third straight Australian Open final when he takes on Andy Murray. The Atlanta Braves get outfielder Justin Upton from Arizona in a seven-player trade. Upton will be united with his older brother B.J. Two thirds of the Braves outfield will have Uptons, or one Alou shy of a full house. The Lakers may be having an awful season, but that didn't stop fans from voting Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard to the West's starting team in the NBA All-Star Game. 2. Is It Cheating? That's what tennis fans are asking after Victoria Azarenka took a 10-minute "injury time out" in the second set of her semi-final win over Sloane Stephens at the Australian Open. Many believe she wasn't really hurt and that she just needed time to compose herself after frittering away five match points. To quote Patrick McEnroe, "Leaving the court for any amoun ...

Dr. David J. Leonard: Just Win? The USTA and its Epic Failure
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Dear Patrick McEnroe and members of the USTA I am writing to express my anger and disgust as to how you and the UTSA have treated Taylor Townsend. Despite being the world's #1 junior girl's tennis player, and the future of American tennis, you decided to shut her out, to take away her financial support, and otherwise block her from entering tournaments. You asked her to stop competing. And why? Because you think she is too fat; because you think she needs to get into better shape, and otherwise slim down. Who died and made you Jillian Michaels? I am glad to see you decided to pay for Taylor's travel costs from Chicago to New York. Better late than never. How about you now apologize for publicly ridiculing and shaming a 16-year old girl? How about you fly to Chicago to express your regret for not only punishing Taylor Townsend, but also embarrassing her in front of the world? How about you step to the microphone and express your regret? You should express your ...

The Let: Reassessing the Tale of the Tape

The fuzzy yellow ball hurtles through the air at top speed, so you move your feet and get your racket back. Suddenly, the ball nicks the tape at the top of the net, changing its pace, height and even direction. If this happened in the middle of a point, the player would have to adjust and keep playing. But in one of tennis's oddest quirks, the rule

    On September 3, 2014, Patrick McEnroe was relieved of his duties as Head of Player Development for the USTA.
    More Details Hide Details Jon Wertheim of Sports Illustrated reports McEnroe was "forced out of his job" after a six-year tenure The announcement was made during the US Open Tennis Championship in Flushing Meadow, New York, where for the second consecutive year, and only the second time in its 134-year history, no American men advanced past the third round. It is the latest indicator that the United States has lost its place in the upper echelon of professional tennis. The last American man to win a Grand Slam title was Andy Roddick in 2003. On April 5, 2015, Martin Blackman was announced as the new Head of Player Development for the USTA.
  • 2013
    Age 46
    Coach Robert Lansdorp said in September 2013 that the format "is wrong for the very talented players" that become champions and noted that Maria Sharapova, Monica Seles and the Williams sisters were already competing on regular courts by age 7.
    More Details Hide Details In 2012 tennis coach Wayne Bryan, father of the Bryan Brothers, wrote a letter expressing concern about the effects USTA mandates were having on players and coaches around the country. McEnroe responded, calling Bryan's criticisms "scattershot" and "filled with holes, hearsay and half truths". At the December 2012 "Riv It Up" USPTA Education Event held at the Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California, professional coaches united to support Bryan in a "packed" meeting with USTA director Craig Jones that drew attendees from as far away as Arizona. FOX News commentator Sean Hannity, the father of two junior players, posted his own analysis online "urging the immediate reversal of the USTA's new rules for juniors competition". Former world #1 John McEnroe, owner of Sportime Tennis Center on Randalls Island, New York, agrees that the tennis federation his younger brother Patrick advocates is unlikely to produce a champion.
