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 2016 U.S. Open Review:

 

 

 


Mens Singles:

I said it would be a crazy Open, and it was.  I said I would be wrong about the Open and I was!  Although Andy Murray eventually became the number one player in the world, he had just played too much tennis going into the Open.  Even though Djokovic was not able to defend his title, I thought it was admirable that he made it to the final.  He had battled injuries all summer long, and was far from being mentally and physically ready for this grueling grand slam.  I would never have guessed Stan Wawrinka would win this year's US Open!  He looked disinterested in the lead up tournaments heading to this Grand Slam.  That is why grand slam run's can take on a life of their own.  You catch a little momentum, get a few lucky breaks, gain some much needed confidence- and there you are, staring a grand slam championship right in the face.   Everything broke right for Stan, and he took advantage, playing himself into championship form over the two week event.

 

Ladies Singles

Yes, I was wrong about the ladies, also, but sort of.  I actually did predict that Serena would not win the Open, and she didn't, she was upset by Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic in the semi-finals.  But I am an Angie Kerber fan, and happy for her.  Yes, I am biased because she if left handed!  She has definitely established herself as the number 1 player in the world, reaching 3 grand slam finals and an Olympic final in 2017, winning in Australia and New York.  I thought a fresh Simona Halep would break through and win her first grand slam.  Halep has that "Caroline Wozniacki" thing going- great defense, but not enough weapons to beat the top players.  A player who has enough offense to beat the top players is American Madison Keys.  She has weapons!  I hope she can add just a little more consistency to her game, and gain more confidence.  I will be very surprised if she doesn't break through and win a grand slam in 2017.  So right now, the ladies tennis world belongs to Angie Kerber.   The interesting question will be, does 35 year old Serena Williams have any gas in the tank to dominate again?  Stay tuned.
