Another great day for our academy players at the NC State L1 Tar Heel Qualifier in Winston Salem, NC today. Out of twelve academy players participating in the event all of them won their first round singles matches and ten went on to winning their second round singles matches and are through to either the round of 16 or quarterfinals in their own singles divisions. One of the only two players who lost in the second round, lost to another player from our academy. The other one lost in a close match 4/6 in the third set after winning the first round 6/1 6/0.
In doubles, our youngest player is through to the girls’ 10 doubles final; the girls’ 12 doubles matches that have three of our academy players in the semi-finals will resume tomorrow.
Awesome job to our academy players and also to Johan Kriek and our coaches, Evgeny and Nino! Big thanks also to our ITF Pro Circuit academy player, Adam Zaorski, for coming out to support our juniors! Finally, thanks to our academy parents for being an important part of the Johan Kriek Tennis Academy team! The pictures taken today (see collage) show our amazing team spirit! #johankriektennisacademy #team #juniortennis #tennis #pride
