I got a nice handwritten letter from Andres thanking me for my VAF
donation which I directed to men's tennis, as I have done for many years. it was very nice of him to take the time to do that. I don't recall Boland doing that (meaning only the hand written part, but I did get typed thank you notes which were always appreciated. i did not mean to say anything negative about Brian, but it probably came across that way and I am sorry about that.
He said that supporters like me and no doubt many others give him and UVA tennis a real chance at developing great human beings and leaders. That is a certainly a very interesting thought and a much broader outlook on his job than my donation could possibly accomplish. Heck, I just thought I was maybe helping the team to win a few more matches. Obviously Andres has much bigger goals for his players. I think we should all support him and what he is trying to accomplish over and above W's and L's.
