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 Wimbledon Review:

 

 

 


Mens Singles: Close, but no cigar is a term that comes to my mind when reflecting on this year's Wimbledon.  Close, but no cigar on my picks.  I picked native son  Andy Murray to win his second title.  Andy played very well, perhaps well enough to win.  However, in the semi-finals, he ran into Roger Federer, and Roger played his best match of the tournament against Andy.  If he could've maintained that level in the final, I believe Roger would have won the entire event.  He couldn't and he didn't.  More on that later.  Close, but no cigar on my pick of Andy Murray to win the event.  Close but no cigar on Roger winning his 18th Grand Slam.  Djokovic was close to falling in an early round, as I suspected he might.  He was down 2 sets to love in the round of 16 to Kevin Anderson.  That comeback, I believe, was his wakeup call to take his game to another level if he wanted to win.   He did and he did.  Regarding the final, Roger went toe to toe with Djokovic for the first two sets.  They split the sets, each winning in a tiebreak.  Ironically, they both had set points in the set that each did NOT win.  Roger continued his form he showed in his semi-final win for the first two sets of the final.  He could not sustain it.  I believe Roger showed just a bit of aging in the final two sets.  Just a bit meaning just enough for the #2 player in the world, Roger, to lose barely to the #1 player in the world in the final of the most prestigous tennis event in the world.   Congratulations to Novak Djokovic, 2015 Wimbledon Champion and, without a doubt, currently the best player in the world.

Just a brief postscript on the state of American tennis on the pro tour.  I heard a sports radio broadcast on the day after the Wimbledon final.  They were discussing how we are experiencing an era of more qreat champions in the mens game (Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic with 40 grand slam wins between the three of them) than ever before.  The irony of that is the game has never been more irrevelant to the American public than every before.  The popularity of tennis in America has been driven by American stars winning championships- specifically, interesting, entertaining, and perhaps, controversial stars.  Connors, McEnroe, and Agassi come to mind.  I tend to agree with that statement.  And the sad news is, we are still a few years away from seeing an American male tennis player transcend the game like these guys once did.

Ladies Singles:  I whiffed pretty big in my Wimbledon pick on the ladies side.  I believed that Petra Kvitova was going to defend her Wimbledon championship.  She lost quietly in an early round.  She is a streaky player, especialy on the grass.  With streaky comes inconsistentcy, as she continues to demonstrate a lot of that.  Serena is dominating the tour to such a degree that women's tennis is no longer interesting.  That is not Serena's fault.  Someone must step up their game.  Popularity in any sport is created when there are genuine rivalries.  Evert-Navratilova,  Justine Henin-Serena Williams, Borg-McEnroe, Agassi-Sampras.  There is no one that is even close to having a winning record currently against Serena.   Sharapova hasn't beaten Serena since 2004 losing the last 16 matches in a row!  Congratulations to Serena Williams, 2015 Wimbledon Champion.  Let's hope the ladies tour steps up and finds someone to challenge her.
