SPADEA’S RENEWED DESIRE AND FOCUS

Orlando Sentinel – Sep 18, 2005 – Short Takes – We received this “breaking-news” e-mail this week, headlined: “Vince Spadea Makes a Public Guarantee to Achieve a Top 10 Ranking with Renewed Desire and Focus.” Our first thought was, “Vince Spadea is still playing tennis?” Our second thought was, “OK, how’s he going to get back into the top 10?” According to the e-mail, “To prove his new commitment, Vince recently began working again with his sport-performance psychologist [John F. Murray]. He now guarantees that mental coaching will help him achieve his highest career ranking ever, top 10 in the world.” According to the e-mail, Spadea is 49th in the world rankings.

Dr. John F. Murray is a sports psychologist and clinical psychologist providing sports psychology and counseling services based in Palm Beach, Florida.
