Quick Q & A With Alex Bogomolov, Jr.

Alex Bogomolov, Jr. was kind enough to answer some of my questions after his first round win at Newport:

This year I played on the stadium court at the Nasdaq [now called the Sony Ericsson Open] where I grew up, where I practiced, and I beat Andy Murray there in front of Miami fans.

Getting charged more than 20 dollars to string a racquet at tournaments.

Q. How much does it cost here?
It’s 22 or 24 [dollars], I remember when I first started 10 years ago it was 10 dollars so over the years we’ve been seeing it and we don’t like the progress [Laughs].

Greatest fear is something happening with my son.

Raising my son.
