BRENDAN EVANS & BRETT JOELSON
September 7, 2001 continued
by Marcia Frost
Q: Brett, I can't seem to find much information on your junior tennis career, where have you been hiding?!
"I haven't been playing a whole bunch of juniors like all these other guys. I haven't been traveling and going to a lot of ITF tournaments -- it's too much money. I just play what I have to play to meet my requirements. I played doubles at Kalamazoo with Brendan and we won, but I didn't meet my requirements to play singles. I had played too many 18s tournaments and not enough 16s.
Q: What are your goals? Are you considering college?
Q: Is there any college in particular you are looking at?
Q: Brendan, What are your plans? I know you've had agents on top of you this week (at the US Open). Are you thinking of turning pro?
Q: I guess you are not thinking too much about college since you are only 15?
Q: So how do the two of you feel about the US Open Boys Doubles Finals?
Though they lost in the finals, Brendan & Brett not only stayed "Fired Up" throughout the match, but they smiled and appreciated their second place trophy more than any other finalists I have ever seen..
