The two correlate more than we think. Ante Tomic played under Messina for Real Madrid for a few seasons.
Could Linsdey be putting together a master plan to bring Tomic over?
I sure hope so. Tomic has referred to Messina as "His Guy" kinda like Gordo said about Horny.
How did playing under Ettore Messina help you so far?
"It helped a lot. He is an excellent and a very demanding coach. The very first time we spoke to each other he immediately told me that my playing time would depend on how much I deserve it during practices, with my attitude and everything else a coach looks at. With Coach Messina you have to be hundred percent focused just to be in his considerations to play. On the court, he is a great professional, but off the court he is a lot less demanding."
