well Jr. tennis fans ,it's that time of the year again.. the most prestigious Jr. tournament of the year Kalamazoo.. look at some of the names of who's coming to play this year.. the question is who's gonna take the grand prize and earn a free trip into the U.S. Open main draw ?:)

this year's draw seemed loaded, more so than ever. slow slow hard courts so most likely a steady baseliner, though being clutch is bigger than being a grinder.

I wouldn't be shocked if we saw Rhyne Williams, Jenkins or Sandgren in the finals.

However in the end, it should Chase Buchanan's tournament to lose. Surface suits him perfect as he is as physically strong of a tennis player there is in juniors. Also, he's no longer injured

Alexander Domijan, Mitchell Frank, Ryan Harrison, Evan King, , Jarmere Jenkins, Denis Kudla, Daniel Nguyen, Frederick Saba, just to name a few contenders ..

I think it's going to be Ryan Harrison and Alex Domijan .. Harrison just won a pro challenger series ...

Britton is not playing. He would only play for the WC to US Open.

I really can't see Domijan's game doing well at zoo as the courts are so so slow

to chrisplchs:
i saw buchanan play recently, and he started out playing brilliant tennis, but in the second set (after dropping the first)his mental game just went south for the winter. A couple of racket smashes, a little yelling, the whole shebang. The thing is, when he gets up in a match, he can close it out, and his mental game is on. However, when his opponent takes him out of his comfort zone for a long period of time, frustration just overtakes him.
But I think this is Saba's tournament if he plays at his best. He's a contender at the very least.

I agree with you about Buchanan's mental aspect or lack therefore of. However, from knowing him personally and talking to him about it, he feels confident and extremely focused about Kalamazoo. He basically built his entire summer around this. That said, the draw looks deep, very deep.

I think Cox deserves a mention. If you can reach the Wimbledon final, you're capable of doing serious damage at Kalamazoo.

Sock and Marcos and Efferding are playing in the 16s... and that's how tough that is... Sock is #5 n the 18s Nats ranking and Giron just won the level 2 Nats at Lakewood which qualifies him to play Zoo 18s but he's playing 16s...

If anybody is going this year I will be volunteering and might see some of you. If anybody wants to setup a hit just for fun let me know or email by clicking on my profile name. SoCal, we didn't connect last year. How about this year if you are coming?

Also, the courts were repainted a few weeks ago so they will be pretty slow. However, I'm putting lots of time on some of those courts so maybe I'll slick 'em up for the players ;).

Zone Team Championships 14s. This is Kalamazoo, the most prestigious US tournament, he won't stand a chance. He barely has made a dent in any big national.

Lets see how he does in this Clay Court Super National and judge to see how well he'll do in K-Zoo, if he can't manage to do well in this National, forget about K-Zoo.

look what he did at the Easter Bowl... zero points,zero wins in the singles didn't get too many games either.. expect the same result for Kalamazoo..

Michael Bluth
07-20-2009, 06:03 AM
Has the draw or entry list been released already?

I'd say Harrison is the favorite for the title this year, but there are a few other contenders as well. Cox, Sandgren, King, Buchanan, Domijan and Kudla I could see winning it, though Kudla and King aren't in good form as of right now.

Fedace

And when two people commented on his results, one having seen him play, and saying that his results were unimpressive, you still continued to defend him.

I have a question, just out of curiosity: Who was the last winner of Kalamazoo to win a match at the USO?

In my opinion, Harrison is the only one of the current field who actually stands a chance of that, should he win. Almost anyone else will just be cannon fodder in the USO.

mrmo1115
07-20-2009, 09:55 PM
^^ Great question.

Through the years, I have always went and checked out the K-Zoo winner only to see them get crushed. I think McClune once put up a decent fight.

I agree with Michael Bluth (without looking at the competitor list) Harrison would probably be the most able to win a match in the main draw if he were to get a good draw. I haven't looked at the competitor list yet, so maybe this opinion of mine will change

You can think whatever gets you to sleep at night, i merely wanted to point out that he had a great win in DOUBLES, and we are talking about singles, i thought that pointing out his win in doubles would make you guys give him SOME credit, i didnt think you were gonna say that he was gonna win singles cause hes not, I know it, he knows it and everyone knows it

Im not stupid enough to pick a kid who got rounded in the Easter Bowl to win the Zoo, okay do you understand.

mrmo1115
07-21-2009, 08:18 AM

I'm goin to the Zoo this year. I hear it is the most fun, awesome experience a junior tennis player can have so I'm lookin forward to it. should be fun. I gotta think Jordan Cox has a shot at 18s after his Wimbledon run?? And 16s I'm takin Jack Sock or Marcos Giron> They just had a 3 setter at Clays so that would be a good match for sure

Michael Bluth
07-25-2009, 08:10 AM
I've gotta think that Cox is one of the main contenders for the 18s title, the other main ones being Harrison, Domijan, Cox, Buchanan, Sandgren, Kudla and King.

I would be very surprised if the winner wasn't one of those guys.

SoCal10s

I talked to his dad at the winter nats and he said they will most likely play 16s at K-Zoo and they doing what they said they would.. Jack seems like a good kid so congrats to him and hope he can win the 16s with all the pressures on his shoulders now..

Michael Bluth
07-31-2009, 05:50 AM
I hope some Norcal guys can make a decent run.

In the 18s we have Zhongming Chen, Matt Micheli, Antony Bogodist, Filipp Pogostkin, Toki Sherbakov, and John Lamble I believe. Lamble is pretty good and gave Krajicek a tough-three setter last year. The others all seem like pretty much cannon fodder to me.

In the 16s we've got Matthew Alves, Shaun Chaudhuri, Eric Johnson, Chris Kipouras, Andrew Maloszak, Calvin Mark, Michael Guzman, Anthony Tsodikov and Connor Farren. Farren seems like he'll do the best out of that group.

I'm working registration this Friday. I haven't seen the T-shirts yet though I'll have a STAFF version anyway. If I remember I'll take a picture of a shirt and hold it hostage until I get those strings (I kid, I kid! :D). I think I'll be able to use the courts until Wed because some players come in early to start hitting, or at least they did the last couple of years anyway.

08-06-2009, 06:15 PM
So I got to see Michael Chang today. I guess he came in early for the exbo. The one bloody day I don't bring my camera...... At any rate, the thing that impressed me the most was not his pace (don't get me wrong....the guy can still bring it easily) but his placement. Ball after ball after ball was an inch or two from the lines. Not just the baseline but the sidelines with the angles. Even when they (his hitting partner) started slugging it out the difference between the two players was very clearly the placement. Chang had the guy running but more importantly the partner did not have Chang running all that much. Oh, the partner would get to balls but then hit them more towards the middle. Even most of the juniors hitting today were hitting a lot of those type of balls with only the occasional paint the liner. It was just an interesting contrast and a clear indication of where one needs to improve in order compete at the pro ranks.

Hey mtommer, where do they set up the store? I go to K College and was trying to guess from your pictures.

The store is in with the concession booth right by the main parking lot stairwell entrance to the courts. Where you get the blueberries and cream. Yesterday, when I took the pictures, they had the tent sides down because of the rain so it was easy to miss.

wow some major upsets at the zoo today:

Billy Bertha taking out Harry Fowler first rd(although Fowler retired in the 2nd so maybe injury?)

Nelson Vick taking out USC's Daniel Nguyen(I consider this a huge upset considering Nguyen was a solid 5/6 for USC all season and killed Chase Buchanan in the finals of the NCAA's, I think he was underseeded....either Vick played out of his mind or Nguyen had an off day)

Cale Hammond beating Chris Mengel 6-0, 6-0(No clue what happened here)

Mousheg Hovhannisyan taking out Novikov(not really an upset because Mousheg is a very good player but its another seed that went down 1st rd)

A player to watch right now is Gabriel Flores....he took out Lamble first rd quite easily and then double baged his next opponent....his next match against Van Overbeek should be interesting

My boy, Justin Shane, just began his tournament winning campaign. Now we're one match away from taking on and beating Evan King. Justin Shane FTW!!!

BTW, if u guys have never seen him play, he'll be the next great serve and volleyer. 6'5" 165 lbs and a game that resembles Petros Sampras'. He's awesome!!!:twisted:

wow some major upsets at the zoo today:

Billy Bertha taking out Harry Fowler first rd(although Fowler retired in the 2nd so maybe injury?)

Nelson Vick taking out USC's Daniel Nguyen(I consider this a huge upset considering Nguyen was a solid 5/6 for USC all season and killed Chase Buchanan in the finals of the NCAA's, I think he was underseeded....either Vick played out of his mind or Nguyen had an off day)

Cale Hammond beating Chris Mengel 6-0, 6-0(No clue what happened here)

Mousheg Hovhannisyan taking out Novikov(not really an upset because Mousheg is a very good player but its another seed that went down 1st rd)

A player to watch right now is Gabriel Flores....he took out Lamble first rd quite easily and then double baged his next opponent....his next match against Van Overbeek should be interesting
Maybe, but i think the player to watch is Justin Shane. I've seen the guy play, and trust me, he's got a chance to be the next great American player.

KC: miss you man,some real action already.. SoCal boy took out a Stanford elite,Kandath,who's supposed to upset Buchanan,I guess that's not happening now(as I predicted in a different post).. watched D Nguyen lose after manhandling Vick in the first set,I give Vick a lot of credit for scraping for every point.. the most entertaining match today was seeing R Noble junk the crap to dominate McCall,I'm gonna keep watching this guy for sure,I think he'll take out Thomson the same way... a surprise was J.Seal losing.. Walker K is not even close to being a Stanford quality player losing to J.Shane... plus Z.Leslie is out.. Saba looks real solid and will be hard to take down,he's gotta be one of my favs to win the whole thing..

Sangren was down a set and a break apparently, good fight by him.

Um, yeah, I guess picking Kandath to go deep was a bad prediction lol. I wasn't really up on his recent form, just saw from some of his results last year he had potential to be a giant-killer.

Kandath did have the potential to be a giant killer but so did Yermanos, who he lost to.....Yermanos made it the the quarters of clays and has been playing out of his mind the last month of so.....idk if he can make any huge upsets but it's possible

One of Norcal's two seeds in the 16s, Shaun Chaudhuri, got knocked out, as did Connor Farren, who I thought had potential to be a dangerous floater.

Our other seed, Tsodikov, is still alive.

mtommer
08-10-2009, 06:33 PM
Well, they aren't top seeds but....

I watched the Kovrigin/Haworth and Boyer/Steer 16's matches.

Kovrigin has a heck of serve but missed a lot of first serves. Haworth did a great job of picking up those serves he did get in and hitting some penetrating returns. Haworth hit some great winners but overall it was his ability to return the ball consistently with great run downs that won him the match.

Boyer did a great job of bouncing between pusher and striker and forced Steer to keep hitting one more and Steer was impatient and kept over hitting. This is amusing, all through the match I had to listen to Steer's coach or father go on about how Steer had to get aggresive, hit low and move up on Boyer (due to his pushing). At one point the guy actually got a warning from the Kovrigin/Haworth match umpire: "Spectators are to refrain from coaching" (I don't know if he thought is was for the match he was umping or not) when the guy said loudly "Attack the ball"! I thought it was interesting because the coach was deriding Boyer for the pushing yet I could tell Boyer was doing it strategically. The last match Boyer got aggressive and took the last few games from Steer pretty easily. Boyer had some absolutely great deep corner gets and Steer was getting pretty flustered out there when he didn't hit winners it seems he's used to getting.

Hats off to all the players though!!!

A lot of them can't handle the heat & humidity either! I haven't seen so many cramp-outs, illness/injury outs since 2007 clay courts. This is a talent-killing ground. The yellow shirts don't even get to sit down before they're called out to another court.

No more rain in the forecast, so "fry baby, fry." However today's forecast was 50% rain & it was a perfect day. Go figure!

My kid is out as of this PM. Boo hoo! I've really enjoyed attending these tournaments & watching so much quality tennis over the years. It's been a great journey. Now I get to kick him out the door & off to college tennis.

I would have liked to have met SoCal10is. Do you know Dave, they guy who's traveling with a group of the So. Cal kids? I thought you were him.

I was so annoyed that it ended up being such a good day because I left my tennis gear at home thinking I wouldn't be able to play. Ugghhh, big mistake! Usually forecasts of 50% and above end up being pretty accurate.

I am relenting to buy the 10# box tomorrow & take it on the plane. I'll share with relatives.

BTW, I take great issue with the chain-saw team cutting down trees down by WMU court 4 this AM. That was rediculous! Perhaps you could tell someone to coordinate that better in the future? It was a little disconcerting for the kids. They couldn't hear the ball & the crack & thunder of those big trees coming down. Whew!

nice ride for you miss Coop.. I have 2 more years myself and I intend to enjoy every minute of what K-Zoo has to offer.. time sure flys by and then they all go to college and it's a kind of mixed feelings about tennis and growing up and all... I'm sure it was all worth the while... he's a good kid and college will make him that much better..

Well Im out of the tourny but what a tourny it is. Plenty of motivation to train to get back next year. It is my favorite tournament by far.

08-12-2009, 10:25 AM
Yeah Vinsant losing 2,2 to Webb was a huge shock to me. I thought it would be a good match but I didn't expect it to go Webb's way and that easily. Also Fratangelo wiped up the floor with Egger 4,1.

In the 18s Domijian lost 76 46 76 to Kevin King, a very good player, who split with Ryan Harrison last year in the same round.

08-12-2009, 10:46 AM
Also another surprising result today had Justin Shane beating Evan King 57 63 75. This is probably the best win for Shane in his career and lets see how he follows it up.

I'm sure that Bilbo will be very happy.

What, no love for the Girls National 18's, going on right now in Berkeley, CA?
Lots of great hitters from all around the country, of course. I gladly gave up my court alittle early today to let some warm up.
Last year, out of about 200 of em, only 1 played with a one-handed backhand, but that's not surprising, I guess.

Michael Bluth
08-12-2009, 01:40 PM
Wow, some totally unexpected developments today. I thought E. King might go out early but I didn't think Shane would be the one to do it.

The bottom half of the 16s draw is wide open now, I could see a number of guys get through to the final.

Kudla's got to be loving this, his two strongest rivals in his half out in the same day. He himself got rid of the dangerous Sundling easily, which bodes well. I'm liking his chances now that Domijan is out.

Something that may have been overlooked is how Hovhannisyan destroyed Frank today. He has been in great form and his match next round against Cox should be an epic.

Sarmiento has pretty quietly advanced to the 5th round without playing a close match. He's my favorite in that quarter.
Buchanan has put up really strong results, but not being there its tough to know how he's playing. As a fellow New Englander, I was rooting for Christo Schultz but Chase is a bad matchup for him IMO. Right now I'd predict Buchanan over Saba in the final, but who knows? I've felt since the draws came out Kosakowski could be a sleeper with Kandath out of form and not knowing how CB was playing.

OleNole
08-12-2009, 05:18 PM
In the 16s I'm still looking forward to the defacto final between Sock and Giron in the semis. I guess Fratangelo could get there too based on the way he beat Egger.
The way Sock's draw has opened up (he'll only have to play 1 top 16 seed to get to the final, and maybe to win the whole thing depending on how the bottom half breaks) he's got to be glad he stayed in the 16s instead of playing the 18s.

I've watched a ton of matches in the past few days and a bunch of decent players,all in all,I can't say if anyone here will be the next American pro.. there are a few who might make a good run but I don't see a top teir guy here. If any one I favor is a crazy kid that has a fat around his waist instead of a 6pack.. A.Butz.. he has some explosive power but needs to drop a few(10 or 20)lbs.or turn those few lbs into mussle mass .. most everyone here who are winning are playing more like clay court players,with a few exceptions... the 16's looks really weak compared to years past.. Cox,Socks,Vincent,and a lot of high profile guys here,IMO, are just headed for college tennis.. a few young ones I like are Kruger,Guignon,and Halbians,but they still have a long way to develop yet..
at times it's a bit sad to see these young boys dedicate so much time and effort into tennis without building a future..meaning some of these kids are going to college without having done anything in high school to prepare them for college and the future.. a lot of these colleges will just re-cruit you and have you win for them and all you have after 4 years is a thank you..
home schooled and academy kids thinking they have a chance in the pros,sort of sad.. just like that documentary they made a few years ago here.. called "" unstrung"".. that's the other side of Kalamazoo..

I've seen hundreds of matches where kids were very disappointed because they lost matches they felt they should have won. But never have I seen such a bratty poor sport as Guignon. Apple doesn't fall too far from the tree. Just look at the dad & you'd know where the kid gets it. It IS sad that many of these kids & parents define themselves by tennis. G. is young. Hopefully he'll out grow it.

But, remember, this kid is only 17... he's got 1 more year at kalamazoo, and i think he has a realistic chance to win it. At 6-5 and 160 he's gonna fill out and be perfect for the pro tour. Can i predict top 10? Hell no! But i kno he's gonna go far. His serve and volley skills guarantee that. But, until then, i guess ive gotta hope Jarmere can win this year's 18's draw...

The 16's championship doubles match was pretty lopsided. The 18's cham. doubles match was better but the top seeds pulled it out. It was fun to watch. Although I still don't like doubles much I have learned a thing or two about how to play doubles better after watching all the matches this year.

And on another positive note I finally broke into the triple digits practicing serves tonight. I've been trying to do this for the last three nights. I didn't think I would do it because of how off the guns are this year.(Yea, yea, it's not as good as the players are putting up but I'm happy. For me it's a goal reached.) :mrgreen:

Gonzalez played all right but Sock had a lot of double faults as well as many missed first serves. Mostly Gonzalez did what he needed to do to stay in the rallies, occasionally hitting an outright winner, but mostly just being consistent. In the first set Sock was pulling amazing drop shots and also hitting the occasional (although more than Gonzalez) winner. Sock claimed he wasn't feeling well....maybe....it's hard to say whether he self destructed or genuinely didn't feel well.

Buchanan clearly showed his experience of playing for OS and being exposed to players better than him and at his level on a more regular basis. He played a smart game of staying in rallies until he had a ball he liked and then unloading on it, often times for a clear winner.

Be careful! This sounds like player-hater crap. I've known Jack for years. He is a competitor through & through.

As I stated many times this past week, the k-zoo was a competitor killing field this year with tons of cramps outs, rolled ankles, heat stroke. At that level, all it takes is a little bit of bad food, some stress, one routine that wasn't kept..... The competition is just too close.

He had an emergency root canal not wisdom teeth removal.

However in the end, it should Chase Buchanan's tournament to lose. Surface suits him perfect as he is as physically strong of a tennis player there is in juniors. Also, he's no longer injured

Of course, my prediction is true. I could go and find every post touting the other players but that would not be necessary as Chase proved yall wrong.

The kid on that slow of a hard court surface is almost unbeatable in juniors when he's focused and healthy.

He only won cause Dennis Lin had a off week. Dennis will kick butt of Chase next year when they play against each other.

well deserved win at Kzoo .. he worked hard and the hard work paid off.. I saw him practicing everyday after his matches(when possible)he was out there with his Ohio coach drilling and tweeking different shots all the time..

I still don't like his cry baby attitude ,I saw him bounce a racket over the net towards his bag on the cross over because he was losing.. I also read that he got a game penalty in the finals ..

I don't remember that surface being so slow at Stowe. I do remember the lower courts at WMU being painfully slow. The worst are the slow courts in GA at the 16s National Open. It was slower than clay if that is possible.

He got a game penalty for showing up late from the bathroom not because of a racket abuse or some other form of frustration. Still a little dumb haha but he played great all tourney and hopefully can have a good showing at the open.

Few competitors realize how that break is calculated. I think the clock starts when they ask for the bathroom break and they must be in the process of serving or receiving before time is up. Most make the mistake that they just need to be in sight or on the court.

I don't remember that surface being so slow at Stowe.

Two years ago Western completely demolished and rebuilt their entire lower and upper courts. This year K resurfaced the courts in late June (early July?) which is why the surface is markedly slower than what it was.

Oh, another tournament reduced to grinders' heaven. That reason and the heat/humidity explains the ton of upsets. I remember a couple of years ago Ryan Harrison upset Tyler Hockwalt on the slow WMU slower courts.

Upset? Hardly: Hochwalt's (note the spelling) only 'big' win was at the clay court nats when he was 16. I wouldn't call Harrison a grinder, either. He's one of the more attacking juniors out there. Granted, 2 years ago Harrison was smaller, so it might be termed an upset but I frankly don't see it as such.

Even if you take into consideration that Hochwalt was playing mostly ITF tourneys, just look at their respective ITF Junior records. Hochwalt was 18-20 in singles play while Harrison was 60-24, beating the likes of Devon Britton back around that timeframe.

the courts at K zoo was med/slow but not as slow as the tennis garden in Indian Wells at the Easter Bowl.. but they were slower than the Easter Bowl main site and Carson ITF..

Oh, another tournament reduced to grinders' heaven. That reason and the heat/humidity explains the ton of upsets.
in the earlier rounds of the 18s where the heat and humidity was a factor,but after those first 2 days,the weather was real nice and cool.. so it when guys like Domjian ,Cox,ect. lost the weather was not a factor..maybe being in the high pressure situation, expecting to win on center court with everyone watching and they couldn't deliver is more likely the case..

How about Hovhannisyan though? He is really on fire, just beat Cox.This kid used to play at my local courts for a while. He was training at the USTA development program in Florida but I think he got dropped. I'm surprised he got this far. You can tell he's talented but figured competing in the 18's would be tough for him. Guys at the park say he's grown a few inches though. Everybody seems to have heard he's going to Pepperdine. Anyway, great tournament. Semis of singles and doubles. Nice.

And I think Chang was the last 18's winner who won a round at the US Open as a Zoo winner WC.

Buchanan played Brendan Evans very close at New Haven qualies today, so maybe he'll have a chance if he gets lucky and draws a qualifier or one of the other wild cards.

I've seen Chase play since he was 13 and recently when he won the US Open juniors. He is a smart all court player. Surprisingly he doesn't really hit a clean ball and I don't think he has any physical weapons gor a guy 6' tall. He's a grinder and counter puncher and his 1st and 2nd serves are pathetically weak. There were rumors that he was banned for a spell a couple of years ago by the ITF for steroid use. I don't think he has a chance to be a contender in the pros but the USTA is banking on him.
