Charlotte Owensby and Cori “Coco” Gauff blast there way into the semifinals of the 12′s Junior Orange Bowl!

December 21st, 2015

One thing is for certain……..Sly Black and his team of elite coaches have worked with dozens of world and national champion tennis players. When compared to the well-known “big-box” tennis academies, Sly Black’s Academy only has a fraction of the students those big places have. How is it possible that for more than a decade Sly has produced several of the finest junior and professional tennis players?  Perhaps the success comes from a mixture of Sly’s keen eye for building champions, certainly one of the best supporting coaching staffs in the business, and a privatized family setting.  Several of the coaches at Sly Black Tennis including Otis Johnson, Gerard Loglo, and Annalise Rose have been Davis Cup/Fed Cup players and have even been coaches, hitters, and travelling coaches for top 100 players on the WTA and/or ATP tours.

 

The last Orange Bowl 12 and under world champion from Sly Black High Performance Tennis was Sly Black’s Daughter…..Hurricane “Tyra” Black in 2013. Sly Black and Hurricane Black are shown below:
