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 Australian Open Preview:

 

 

 


Mens Singles:

Full disclosure, this is being posted at the midpoint of the tournament.  Both of the ladies and men are at the round of 16.  First, reflections from the first week.  Nadal going out in the first round to Fernando Velasco is not a good sign for the 29 (will be 30 in June) former number 1.  His physically demanding style of play entertained us as he won 14 grand slam titles including 9 French Opens!  However, this style made it fairly inevitable that it would lead to his body breaking down.  Those who rely on their legs, rather than superior stroke production tend to drop off sooner than other champions. (Think Mats Wilander, Michael Chang, and Lleyton Hewitt.) Going into the second week, I will stand by my prediction from last year that Roger Federer will not win another grand slam.  As great a champion as he is, at age 34, I find it impossible for him to win a best of 5 set event over two weeks against the best in the world with the way the game is played today.  I believe it is a two horse race, with one "darkhorse".  The darkhouse is Stan Wawrinka.  On any given day, Stan is capable of playing out of his mind.  That means he could get to the final and is capable of beating Djokovic or Murray.  But the odds of him being on, and staying positive and mentally tough over four hours is less than 50%.  The only person with a fighting chance is Andy Murray.  He is rock solid.  He still doesn't have enough weapons, so he is required to grind out long points for hour and hours.  A possibility, better chance than Wawrinka.  However, the clear favorite, of course, Djokovic.  I believe he is in the prime of his career.  His stroke production is the best of his career, he is in the best physical shape of his life, and he has never been more confident.  I would consider it an upset if anyone other than Novak wins the first grand slam of 2016

 

Ladies Singles: For the first time in a while, I don't think it is clear who is going to win the women's event at this year's Aussie Open.  No, there are still not many ladies out there who have a shot at being Serena.  But there is one, and I think she actually is the favorite at this point in the tournament .  That is Victoria Azarenka.  Azarenka is a two time winner of this event.  She won the final tune up event just prior to this in Brisbane.  She is healthy and in a positive state of mind.  History doesn't bear well for her, however.  She has a 3-17 record overall versus Serena, and 0-10 in Grand Slams.  She has taken sets off  of Serena at Grand Slams, and has been serving for the championship.  I believe this year she knocks the door down! Look for a Serena-Azarenka final this coming weekend!
