More Wins at USTA Tournaments
Our players are rocking at USTA tournaments, incredible number of wins.
During the month of August, our academy welcomes Freddie, a tournament player coming from Canada. Freddie is here training with us and already bagged himself an L5 Doubles title.
Incredible effort by our National players…
Nicely done by Keito and Alice, coming to this L5 tournament as the #1 seed on their respective flight. Alice breezed through the early rounds, but finals was hard-fought, winning 6-4 and 6-4. Keito took control of the finals with eye opening 6-0 6-0 win. Bravo!
Did you know USTA individual tournaments consist of many levels across all age groups? From 10U Orange ball and L7 to L1 tournaments.
Team Dunlop welcomes Angela!
Dunlop awards Angela an equipment sponsorship. In less than 1 year joining our academy, Angela started playing yellow ball tournaments climbing to top 30 ranking in northern California.
Congrats to Maddie
Tough day in the office, battling 100+ degree heat in the 4-hour semifinals match. Maddie fought hard to earn a spot in the finals, however she couldn’t continue due to heat exhaustion. Not bad for a 2nd place check.
A great way to cap off her summer training, in preparation for her final year in College Tennis at Ohio state – a top 10 D1 program for Women’s Tennis.
We are going back to ESA, Florida Summer 2024
Since 2017, our academy teamed up with Emilio Sanchez Academy in Naples, Florida to enhance the training for our players as well as coaches. We have made a few trips there since. More info
We are very excited to announce our return to the academy in July 2024. We will keep everyone posted in early 2024 for players who would like to join us.

Did you know ?
Higher level USTA tournaments will require more USTA ranking points for players to be accepted. Several years ago, UTR ratings were also used for acceptance at USTA tournaments. But, not anymore!
All USTA tournaments will require USTA ranking points for acceptance. Where does that leave UTR? UTR rating is more relevant for juniors ages from 16-17 when seeking college tennis recruiting. UTR rating is the first thing college coaches would look for when considering a player for their team.
