Talking with Michael McClune

I understand many juniors are taught to focus on the process, think long-term, and develop for the future. However, very few juniors are able to detach themselves from the results and stay the course. As a consequence, only a handful of juniors are able to translate their games into encouraging professional results.
In my eyes, Michael McClune is one of the few American juniors who can legitimately battle on the ITF Pro Circuit. The seventeen year old from Irvine, California is learning to piece together the puzzle and blossom into a mature tennis player. I love how he integrates a wide variety of shots into his game and forces his opponents to come up with a passing shot on the biggest points of the match. Whether he wins or loses, the pressure he exerts on his opponents is enormous. In the big picture, his forward moving gamestyle is a hopeful recipe for success.
