The Blayney Chronicle wrote a very interesting article about Tennis Australia and how they are keeping the board and presidency re-election in October very quiet.
Tennis Australia has been under a lot of pressure over the last 3 years or so for the lack of results within the organisation. Thus, Tennis Australia president Geoff Pollard, chief executive Steve Wood and Australian Open director/player development manager Craig Tiley, are all under the microscope and are expected to be under a lot of fire at the re-election.
Currently, Australia has four players in the top 100, coupled with rising dissent about player development – debate is set to rage about whether change is needed at the helm.
Lots of people have been talking about Paul McNamee to step back into some sort of role with Tennis Australia, because McNamee was the man who really pushed the development of the Australian Open when he was in charge. McNamee is currently in the market for a new position after being sacked recently from the Melbourne AFL club. McNamee was a huge loss the Tennis Australia, but it would really be great to see him rejoin the fold.
