10sballs Editors Note – Richard Krajicek is so much more than the 1996 WIMBLEDON Singles Champion. He is a great business man. Coach. Dad. Husband. Tournament Director. And drumroll…… A GREAT Tournament PROMOTER! It’s rare when a tourney director is a promoter as well. Richard is a brilliant man. He knows what to give the fans and the players to make an event that’s one of the most fabulous weeks of the year. The team we sent to ROTTERDAM are having the best time. We applaud Richard.

Ok. There’s a “DOUBLEFAULT” here we can’t overlook. That’s that Nick Krygios actually thought he could play basketball in Americas ALLSTAR CeLebrity basketball tourney. Really. That’s so sad and seriously delusional. No one in America that doesn’t closely follow tennis has a clue to who he is. Not a clue. Poor lost boy. It’s so sad. Such a great talent with no “rudder” to keep the ship straight…..
