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 2015 US Open Preview:

 

 

 


Mens Singles:

For the last five years or so, if you mentioned the big three on the men’s tour, who would you think of? I think Rafael Nadal would be in that list. However, he is not on my big three list as we begin this year’s US Open. Rafa’s inconsistent year continued through the US Open warmup events, failing to reach even the semi-finals in either Canada or Cincinnati.   He has had little recent success on hard courts in order to feel any confidence for the Open. He is a CHAMPION, however. He has the stuff inside in which champions are made. He is not on my favorites list, but you can never count out the heart of a champion. Now on to the big three: Murray definitely has a fighter’s chance. I saw him live in DC a few weeks ago lose in the first round to a guy I barely heard of. However, he came back and won Canada, and lost in the semi’s to Roger.   My take on Andy is this: He will not determine whether he wins the Open. He will beat Roger or Novak only if their game is slightly off that day. I still don’t see him opening his shoulders and dictating play. How about Roger?   He just won Cincinnati, won of the biggest tournaments , outside of the grand slams , on the pro tour, and the biggest tune up event of the Open. Roger has changed his game! He is playing higher risk/higher reward tennis. He is taking more chances, dictating play, and shortening points. Has anyone seen his “rush and crush” play off the return of serve recently. It has taken me back, oh close to 30 years, when McEnroe was dominating the game doing it. And Roger HAS to do it. He can no longer grind out points with the top players. The long points will take its toll on Roger, physically , at age 34.   Nobody can beat time.   So Roger has a “puncher’s chance” at the Open. First, he must get through the first week and a half with relatively short matches. One or two 5 setters in the early rounds may do him in. However, if he can successfully hug the baseline and play “first strike” tennis , that is, gain an advantage early in points with aggressive shot making, he has a chance. Do I think Roger will win this year’s Open.   No, I don’t. It will be exciting to watch, but I don’t think he is capable of playing this high risk/high reward style successfully over two weeks playing best of 5 set matches. Finally, on to Novak Djokovic. Can he have a year just short of a grand slam. I think he can. I believe he will win the Australian, Wimbledon, and the US Open this year, and fall only one win short- The French Open final, from winning a grand slam, not done in men’s tennis since 1969. Novak has the necessary skills and fitness to grind out long matches over two weeks.   I don’t think he has a big problem losing in two consecutive finals, Canada and Cincinnati, leading into the Open. He is now a veteran champion, and has his focus on the big prize: New York City!! So with superior skills, fitness, and confidence, Novak Djokovic will win his 3rd major of the year, and 10th overall, winning his 2nd US Open title.

 

Ladies Singles: Serena. I could end this post with just that word. Only Serena can beat Serena at this year’s US Open. If Serena would suffer an injury prior to the US Open Womens Final on Saturday, September 12th, that would be the only way she does not win the championship, and with it, a calendar grand slam. It would be first in the women’s game since Steffi Graf won the “Golden Slam” in 1988. It’s known as the Golden Slam because not only did Steffi win all four grand slams that year, but she also won the Gold Medal in the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, Korea, the first year tennis was an official Olympic sport in over 60 years. And Serena wants this title and the grand slam BAD! This would be her 22nd grand slam singles title, tying her with Steffi Graff, and second only to Margaret Court’s 24. When Serena wants a tennis title really bad, and she is healthy, there is NO STOPPING HER. I really don’t see any clear cut challengers, which like I mentioned in an earlier post, is NOT GOOD for women’s tennis.
