Unfortunately he lost the 4th set in a tiebreak after being up 2-0. But he had a good run and will be ranked 18th in the world after this tournament ends.

I think he'll be ranked around 80th. He got to the round of 16 after coming into the tournament 118. You don't jump that far based on one week. He played well, was up a set and up a break in the second set before Medvedev got things going on his side of the net.

Booras praised for developing Dominik in national tennis publication. Should help with recruiting.

“[Tulane Head coach] Marc Booras definitely chose the right training goals. He was responsible for turning a good player into a top athlete and performer,” Heuft said.

Tulane has been blessed with good womens ands mens tennis coaching of late: Klein, Schumacher, Booras. My French nephew, Arnaud Lantin was No. 1 JC player and recruited to TU by Coach Klein but he choose Top 10 program U. of
Illinois instead for his 4 year degree. My kids helped out coach Klein back in the 90's during his summer tennis camps.

What's ironic is Dominik told reporters that his biggest change this year, leading to his improved play, was a focus on diet and conditioning. He came right out and said he had close to a total disregard for both while in college. And he was the best player in the NCAA for almost two years.

This isn't a knock on the coaching, it's a nod to his natural born talent.

Ask Drew Brees why his game is among the best and he’ll tell you preparation, exercise and nutrition. Tom Brady as well. When you want to be the best those things can give you an edge.

I know Brady is a freak about working out and nutrition. Gronk used to try to keep up with him in the off season and would joke about how he couldn't do so.

Some D1 programs have nutritional specialists, not just one or two for the Athletics Dept, but position specific nutritional specialists dedicated to various sports.
