Earlier this year 13 year old Ronan Jachuck was barely ranked inside the top 50 in the USTA Boy’s 14 and under division. As of the June 1, 2015 national rankings, Ronan had moved all the way up to top 10 in the country!  We knew that Ronan was working really hard and playing at a very high level, but this is simply an amazing accomplishment for 13 year old Ronan. Ronan has put tons of effort into his tennis and strength development and his results speak for themselves. Some of his results include two round of 16 showings at the 14’s supernationals, finalist at the USTA Florida Level 4 event, and Finalist at the USTA Nationals Sweet 16’s event.  Awesome job Ronan!!!

Karina Dergunova has been with Sly Black High Performance Tennis for less than a year and her tennis is really coming together. Karina just turned 11 and is now ranked #61 on the College Tennis Recruiting List of 5th graders.  Her work ethic and rate of improvement are awesome and she has certainly closed the gap between her and several high level 13 and 14 year olds who beat her easily when she first arrived here.   Sly Black has gotten her on a really solid path and she recently surprised many by winning a USTA Florida 12′s championship tournament that was filled with several solid competitors.  Keep up the hard work Karina!!!


Hurricane Tyra Black wins 3rd ITF and Goes 19-1!

June 2nd, 2015

Everyone at Sly Black High Performance tennis was really excited when Sly’s daughter won her 3rd ITF Event. She has won 3 out of the 4 events played this year and is now the #1 2001 USA ranked ITF Player. She is also #3 in the world. To say that Hurricane “Tyra” Black has taken things by storm during the past 2 months is an understatement of the highest proportions. She has a 19-1 record on the year and actually avenged her only loss of the year during a recent USA ITF Event in Delray Beach, Florida!
