Hello CT Fans!

August has been a tremendously busy month for me, with many big changes happening. I have started preparations for the 2016/2017 season, and only have a month left until the first event, the French Open. This training involves getting back with my trainer, Mike Cecchi, as well as getting back out on court. It still feels like the World Championships was just yesterday, but I know I need to get back on the horse to make sure I am 100% prepared for the what is to come.

Luckily, last weekend the National Tennis Club hosted its annual Pell Cup doubles tournament, which I have traditionally used as a warm-up event to kick off my training. This year I teamed up with my good friend, and Boston T&R Head Professional Tony Hollins in the Pro Division. We had two tough matches to make it to the Finals, but I was pleased with my form given the time off over the summer. In the Finals we played current Doubles World Champion, and my doubles partner, Tim Chisholm and one of the top amateurs in the US Peter Cipriano. The match was a close one with Tony and me taking the first set 6/4 before falling in the second set 6/3. The final set was a short one, starting at 3-all, and we managed to take an early lead which proved to be the difference. We took the set 6/4 and that was the match!

I also managed to sneak in a super early morning practice session with John Lumley over the weekend, and am currently planning a trip down to TuxPhiladelphia to put in some good training time with him before the French. I will most likely be there in early September, so if you are around let me know!

Hopefully there will be a lot more big news over the next few months, so keep checking in for updates!

CR.ORG NEW LOOK!

Hello My Friends!

As you look around the site, you are going to start seeing lots of new updates! As I move forward in my career, I am starting to #focus on many different aspects of court tennis. This does not mean I am slowly down my training by any means, it just means I am adding lots of other elements alongside it.

I have always been very passionate about the growth of court tennis, and my hope is that I can help the USCTA, IRTPA, and all the other associations to grow the game in the future. Alongside these associations I hope to bring court tennis, both in the US and around the world, to new heights through the building of new courts, advancement of junior tennis, and overall growth of the professional side of the game.
