Skupski’s


You obviously typed this while I was looking for a player page for either of them.

Good news.

You're going to have to get rid of that apostrophe, Jon, or SC will be all over you

Yet another excellent Podcast from Soto Tennis, this time with the Skupskis. Plenty of insight into how they got back together and how the "merry-go-round" of partner changes took place during the O2 finals last year.

As an added twist, Dan Kiernan also went to LSU, just overlapping with Ken's time there.

 Fascinating. Im feeling excited about neal and Ken, it feels like theyve both grown and go into this new season both excited for what they could do. 

the piece on the split for neal with Jamie is interesting, more for what he didnt say. It sounds like Jamie communicated poorly and maybe not directly to neal, but neal avoids criticising. He does however say how the match with Jamie against kubot and melo disappointed him for the lack of fight, presumably from Jamie, I recall Jamie served terribly in that mtb as they lost a big lead. 

so it sounds like the split whilst Jamies call, was in fact something neal isnt too disappointed by.

 Yes. I picked that up too.  Neal was being very diplomatic with his wording.

Looks like the bros have split.

On Dan Kiernan's podcast, Neal said there was a strong possibility of playing with Jack Sock in Winston-Salem and US Open. They played together last year in World Team Tennis in the winning New York Empire team.

Such a shame Ken was injured after their 500 win. They could have been getting into Masters (Ken has never played one lifetime). Would have been nice to at least have a go at that level and see what they can do.

  neal and Ken are currently last entry in winston Salem. So would Ken pull out injured and Neal repair with Sock? Or get a WC?

Jack is the best in the world at doubles, period.
