Amazing Querrey made it at age 30. SF's may be a bust with Murray, Djoker

and Nadal out. looks like Fed will win GS # 19.

Boland was hired to find/develop young guys into GS winners or at least contenders. Based on Wimbledon With only 3 American men in round of 32 and one in the 16's , he has a huge job ahead of him. I love Boland, but this may be too tough a job for him or anyone for that matter. USTA has been trying to find the next Roddick, Sampras, Agassi, McEnroe, Connors, etc for a long time.
I do not know if attending the USTA training facility is free if you are invited, but it needs to be or else I do not like Boland's chances. I know attending private tennis academies is very,very expensive and that eliminates lots of kids and tends to limit the choices to kids of well off tennis families and that eliminates many great athletes who may want to try big time tennis.
