I don't have much time to post today; still at the IMG Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy,  then catching a late flight back to New York. I had a nice long talk with Taylor Dent today, and also caught up with Jelena Jankovic and Sabine Lisicki.

In half an hour, I'm going to check out another of the many prodigies working out here, then I'll visit a bit with Michaela Krajicek. Many of the youngsters who would ordinarily be here are down at the Orange Bowl, where the 18s and 16s are in full swing. Next week on Key Biscayne it's the 14s and 12s - and boy, do I have a hot prospect to tell you about. That will have to wait for tomorrow, but here' a hint for those of you who enjoy sleuthing, or merely torturing yourselves: The youngster's  name rhyms with - and is nearly identical to - that of  French Open champion of this decade.

All in all, we'll have plenty of red meat next week. . .
