CIT President Doug Kegerreis presents:

High School Tennis:  Are you ALL in?

(joining Doug on the presentation panel from l. to r., Kim Dillard, Westfields HS tennis coach; Maria Reyes-Chian, captain, Chantilly HS girls tennis team; Doug; Bob Pass, owner and director of 4 Star Tennis Academy; Chip King, chairman of USTA Mid-Atlantic junior competition committee)

Doug presented at the 2014 USPTA Mid-Atlantic Convention in Fredericksburg, Virginia.  As a high school tennis coach for the past ten years at Chantilly High School, Doug is passionate about what a great experience it is for tennis players to play on their high school tennis team, regardless of their skill level.  For most players, tennis is an individual sport.  Many high-level tournament players are skipping high school tennis.  They feel that they can't get the level of competition in practices and matches they need in order to compete at their level.   Doug's main response to anyone who questions whether to play high school tennis is this:  "The value of the high school tennis team experience trumps everything".   The team dinners, secret pals, senior days, the daily support and encouragement of your teammates, lifetime memories, lifetime friendships from that small window of opportunity makes for a great short-term alternative for high level tournament players to the high pressure grind of tournament tennis at the national level.  Doug encourages tournament players to manage their time well and schedule their high performance workouts before or after high school practices if they don't feel like they are getting those workouts with their team.  But don't ask for special privledges, like skipping team events, in order to workout elsewhere.  All players should respect the privledge it is to represent their high school on their tennis team for just four short years.

Doug's 2016 Wimbledon Review:

 

 

 


Mens Singles:

As prognosticators like to say, "this information is for entertainment purposes only"!  I whiffed on Andy winning the tournament.  Now if this was horse racing, I would have put lots of money on him placing. (coming in second for you non horse race fans)  Sometimes grand slam opportunities fall in your lap and you have to take advantage.  Andy Murray did just that.  He played solid tennis for two weeks, while other contenders fell by the wayside.  I definitely believe that Murray would have beat Federer convincingly had he made it through to the final.  The next question is "What happened to Djokovic?"  He was tired.  I think a little physically, but mostly psychologically and emotionally.  I watched him go through the motions against David Goffin in a warmup tournament the week before.  Yeah, I was fooled.  I thought surely he will turn the switch on at Wimbledon.  He couldn't and he didn't.  Has his "invincible bubble" burst?  That is what will be answered at the US Open.  I think it is fair to say that Djokovic and Murray are currently far and away the two best male players in the world.  I also believe that this year's finalist Milos Raonic is knocking hard on the door.  He is not going away and will break through at a grand slam soon.

 

Ladies Singles:  Yep, Serena did it too me again!  I called her a long shot, and look what she did, won her 22nd Grand Slam title!  I was foolish to pick the Spaniard and current #2 Gabi Muguruza to win the event.  To win two grand slam events three weeks apart on two completely different surfaces, clay and grass,  is impossible for all but the greatest of champions.  Muguruza's first grand slam victory at the French Open was such an emotional accomplishment, it was impossible for her to prepare to play and compete at a level necessary to win Wimbledon- and she went out early.  Angie Kerber, I believe, made it clear she is not a one slam wonder after winning the Australian earlier this year.  She had a solid run making it to the final at Wimbledon.  She should be considered one of the favorites at the US Open.  Serena will be 35 in September.  How long can she keep it up?  Remember time is undefeated.  I believe that as long as she thinks she can win grand slams, she will continue to play.  Time, the undefeated, usually shows itself in frequent injuries raising its ugly head.  (See Roger Federer, 2016)  I've always said that if Serena is healthy and motivated (a chance to become the all-time grand slam leader) she will be tough to beat.  The motivation is there to win the US Open.  Lets see if her body can get her through.
