Ronan takes the Gold and Silver at Supernational 14′s!

 
August 11th, 2015

At the rate Ronan Jachuck has been going, his parents are going to certainly need a separate trophy room. Ronan has been on fire all year and moved into the top 10 of the national rankings prior to his participation in the USTA Supernational Hardcourt Championships.  Ronan won the doubles title with partner (Nicholas Garcia) and was the singles finalist.  His awesome performances have now placed him into the top 5 of the national rankings!  Ronan an awesome player but perhaps more importantly…….Every coach, parent, and player absolutely loves Ronan.   If we had a nickel for every time a parent told us how much they like Ronan’s personality and attitude, we would be retired and on some island in Tahiti.  Great Job and very well deserved….Ronan!!!!

July 24th, 2015

 

Charlotte Owensby and Rachel Arbitman communicated really well in the 12′s Supernational Doubles. They were way behind during both their semifinals and finals matches, but they somehow found a way to pull through some extremely exciting matches.  Rachel does not train with us but she is welcome to play singles or doubles matches here anytime she is in town. Rachel and her dad are awesome people and we hope Charlotte and Rachel will play together in future tournaments.

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!!!
