CIT Staff Attend USTA National 10 and Under Tennis Workshop at CITI Open

CIT teaching staff Doug Kegerreis and Maria Reyes-Chian attended a USTA 10 and Under Workshop recently at the CITI Open in Washington, DC.  They also enjoyed quarterfinal matches of the pro tour event that afternoon. The workshop is part of a national initiative to educate and promote the exciting changes being implemented to get more children learning, enjoying, and excelling at the great game of tennis!

 

 

 

 

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 2014 Wimbledon Review

    Mens Singles:   I was pretty accurate with my thoughts on this year's Wimbledon.  The physical toll it takes to win the French Open has made it next to impossible to win the French and Wimbledon back to back.  Rafa got bounced in the round of 16.  I also thought that Roger's early exit at the French set him up nicely to make a nice run at what I think was his last shot to win a grand slam.  I was pretty close on this as Roger steamrolled into the final.  However, I underestimated Novak Djokovic.  Even though he didn't win the French, he did lose in the final in a hard fought, physically demanding match vs. Rafa.  I didn't think he could bounce back both physically and emotionally from the French final.  Djokovic's victory at Wimbledon over Roger in the final is his most impressive grand slam victory yet, in my opinion.  I do believe that his career will outlast Rafa's as his game is less physically demanding, and he has been blessed by a durable, flexible body.  It still may not result in more grand slams at the end, but it will last longer.   Who is my early pick for the Open?  Rafa is hurt, and I think Roger lost his last best shot.  Murray has gone through many changes in the last year, both recovering from back surgery, and major changes in his coaching team.  I don't think he's ready to win another major yet.  I say Novak is the leader going into NYC.   What do you think?  Please leave your comments at www.facebook.com/ChantillyInternationalTennis

     

     

    Ladies Singles:   The women's field continues to be unpredictable at the grand slams!  I didn't see it coming.  First, I thought for sure Serena would dominate this year's Wimbledon.  She appeared healthy (that was not the case, however.) I still think a healthy and motivated Serena will always be the favorite.  But she definitely needs both of these, at this stage of her career, in order to be victorius.  Petra Kvitova plays a game that is absolutely suited for grass.  It is all in, high risk, big babe, crush everything tennis. I don't think this style would work on any other surface.  But you have to give her credit.  She was feeling it, and she went for it!  She didn't hold anything back in the big moments, and she was rewarded with her second Wimbledon championship.  I don't think you will see her winning any grand slams on any other surface.  I also don't think she can maintain that level consistently, week in, week out.  Therefore, you probably won't see her contending for #1 player in the world.  However, she deserves to lift the championship trophy at the 2014 Wimbledon.
