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 Australian Open Review

    Mens Singles: What an exciting Australian Open!  Where do we start?  We'll end with Stan, so let's start somewhere else.  I will state for the record that there is nothing more pleasing to me than watching someone hit a beautiful one-handed backhand.   Please show me some more one-handed backhand players break out  onto the tour!  How refreshing to see variety when they play.  They can drive the backhand.  They can slice it.  The nature of their style makes it more natural to transition to net.  The one-handed backhand makes it more natural to volley off of the backhand side. We saw THREE of them make it to the final eight at this year's Aussie Open.  Have you heard of Grigor Dimitrov? Many watch him and say "a young Roger Federer".  He lost a tough four set match to Nadal in the quarters, and he is pretty to watch!  Especially his one-handed backhand.  Roger is already known not only as possibly the best player of all time, but also the most pleasing to watch.  Which brings us to the next question:  Is Roger back?  He looked good getting to the semi-finals.  It is there where Nadal humbled him in three mildly competitive sets.  It is sad to see such a great divide in skill  between Roger and Rafa at this point in their careers.     This takes us to the hottest one-handed backhand player in the world, and this year's Aussie Open, Stan Wawrinka!  Wow can he hit a backhand!  He used to fail because he thought he could cream his backhand in any situation no matter where is was standing on the court!  He is working on that, and is probably a big reason why he won his first grand slam.   He became a better decision maker.  This column is almost over and Djokovic and Murray's name has yet to be mentioned.  Yes, they will be heard from again!  In fact, I could see them playing in the finals of the next two Master's tournaments at Indian Wells and Miami.  Djokovic was one brick volley away from winning his fourth consecutive Aussie.  Murray made a great run to the quarters with limited match experience while recovering from back surgery.  I wish I had better news regarding American tennis.  It is probably the bleakest it has been since the dawn of Open tennis when Stan Smith and Arthur Ashe were winning titles.  I don't see it changing anytime soon, until we can convince our very best athletes to sit down there basketballs and footballs and pick up a tennis racket.  The modern game requires more athleticism than ever before.   Other countries are getting their best athletes onto the tennis court  (i.e. Spain with Nadal, France with Tsonga and Monfils),  America is not.  What do you think?  Please leave your comments at www.facebook.com/ChantillyInternationalTennis

     

     

    Ladies Singles: Surprise, surprise!  Just when we thought anyone who wasn't named Serena or Victoria, didn't have a sniff at the Aussie Open, guess who failed to make it past the quarterfinals?  Neither Serena Williams nor Victoria Azarenka made it to the final weekend.  Serena lost to former number one Ana Ivanovic who made it to her first grand slam quarterfinal since winning the French in 2008.  Azarenka lost to Radwanska of Poland for the first time in eight tries.  Li Na,  is a huge crowd favorite in Australia, and always plays her best tennis down under.  After being a two-time finalist, she finally broke through to win her second grand slam.  Does this mean that the door has swung open for some new Grand Slam winners this year?  I hope so.  Some new blood and new champions would be good for the sport at this time.  How about a one-handed backhand champion in the women's game?  I can always hope, but I don't see it happening anytime soon.  For the Americans, as most of us know by now, the next great hope is Sloan Stephens.  She lost convincingly to Azarenka in the round of 16.  It appeared that she is clearly not in the same league as the top five players in the world at this time.  However, her talent and athleticism are apparent.  She will be a grand slam champion soon.
