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 2017 Australian Open Preview:

 

 

 


Mens Singles:

As I look at this year's Aussie Open draw, two things stand out.  One, Roger Federer seeded #17, and Rafael Nadal seeded #9! Both are coming back after long absences, consequently, the rankings and seedings reflect that.  This should provide some intriguing early round matchups.  Let's start with Federer.  A potential third round match with 10 seed Tomas Berdych, followed by a possible quarterfinal with 5 seed Kei Nishikori.  I think he survives the first but not the second. Nikshikori is reaching the prime of his career.  I believe his physical skills will be too much for Roger.  Rafa may have to contend with a German superstar in the making in 24 seed Alexander Zverev.  My bracket has Zverev taking him down.  The winner of the match most likely will be heading for a quarterfinal showdown with 3 seed Milos Raonic.

Djokovic has a tough draw.  He starts out with a classic first round match vs. long time tour veteran Fernando Verdasco.  Other possible future matchups may include a third round match with up and coming Brit Kyle Edmund, followed by a resurging Dimitrov, and a quarterfinal with young Austrian star Dominic Thiem.  I think Djokovic will survive this draw and make it to the final.  However, the physicalness of his road to the final will have taken its toll.  How physical the Djokovic-Murray matches have become is something for the history books.  I see this final taking place down under, with Murray having the physical edge this time, and winning his first Australian Open!

American watch:  Not much to look forward to in this event.  I have young Jared Donaldson making some noise, possibly knocking off Gilles Simon and getting to the third round, but no further.   I see Sam Querry losing in the third round to Murray, and Isner in the third round also to young frenchman Lucas Pouille.  #23 Jack Sock, who incidentally just won his third ATP title last week in Auckland, could be the last American male standing, making it to the fourth round and losing to 7 seed Marin Cilic.  This, however, would include an upset of Jo Willie Tsonga, 12 seed, in the third round.

 

Ladies Singles

Full disclosure about the ladies.  I don't know many of them!  As I filled out my Tennis Channel Racket Bracket, I simply took the top seed listed in many matches because I didn't know many of the players.  I do see the continuing of the trend which took place at the US Open. That is,  the emergence of tall Czech player Karolina Pliksova.  I see her once again taking out a goodie but oldie, Serena Williams in the semi-finals. In the other half of the draw, I expect Angie Kerber to continue her domination to defend her Aussie Open title, and her second consecutive Grand Slam title.

Our top young American, Madison Keys is ot competing in this year's Aussie Open.  She is recovering from wrist surgery.
