I wasn't disrespecting my opponent in any way. the kid wasn't very good and he was yelling curse words and throwing his racket. if anything he was disrespecting me. by messing around i mean when deiton came next to me i was already up 6-1 3-0 and i wasn't playing my best. i was merely working on different aspects like serving and volleying on the majority of points and going for more just to work on it. by messing arouns i meant not playing my normal game

OK good luck today, looks like you have a tough 2 rounds.Deit's draw is easier.. too bad Deit could draw Nikko, that would have been interesting...

thanks. i won the first one 6-2 6-0 and the second one 6-3 2-6 6-2. playing very well. deiton fell in his first match 4 and 6 to a solid guy. plenty of controversy in that match over calls, score and god knows what else. overall i thought deit played very solid the other guy was better then his ranking. hes a kid from Weill in Ojai

It was a bad call on a key point but the kid in no way was the kid cheating just a bad call, it was in the shadow and Deit let it get to him then the ref told deit he wasn't allowed to pump his fist towards us his parents ,but over all the other boy played steady and deserve the win!

deit looked real tight in the breaker in the second. i thought he had him at 6-5 but he kinda tightened up a little. the kid he played was having an unusually good day. i thought deit played pretty well. ur thoughts? the one thing deit doesnt have that will come as he gets older is a killer serve. the thing i noticed about the guy deit was playing was that he could win free points when he needed off his first serve. just a thought. deit will develop a bigger serve as he gets older though. other then that he has all the shots

congrats on making it to the main draw... a few eyebrow raised by who made it and who didn't... Nikko who's been on a real tear in the 14s,didn't make it.. and Deit also... good win over CB

Deit does have a pretty nice serve (big) he tends to always aim for placement rather then power during tight matches ,were trying to get him to cut loose a little more i think it will take some time (hes 12). He really let the call get to him yesterday which suprized me but in the end i saw how big he can play and realized he can dominate the age division if he wants and he so young even though he's my son i stand sometime amazed at what he can do .As for the other boy he played solid and like i said deserved the win!!

well from what i saw his serve is placed well but tht doesnt do it when u play real good 16 year olds. u need power and placement. the only reason i won yesterday was my serve was huge. high %, high mph, good placement. 16s and 18s is all about holding serve. and i really think as deit grows he'll get stronger and be able to bang it. i wouldnt worry about. just a thought i had. he;s incredible for 12.

weve been working in practice and he can get up to about 85-90 but in the matches depending on the returner he tends to go right to placing it 55-65 ,But you are right it will not work at the higher age groups they will get a read on it and its over!! Im gonna have him read your words it might provoke him Thanx

SoCalDominates: well part of this is true but I think you need to go around the block a few more times.. when you start playing excellent returners,unless you can ace or get winners serves with no returns all the time, I can guarantee you,you won't win without a solid groundstroke game or dominate with a volley game .. great returners will eventually get used to your serves and if you don't have enough game to back it up,you cannot win... if you ever get a chance to play guys like Spinosa ,Nguyen, Mkrtchian, or Wang in singles,you'll know what I'm talking about.. you can have a good serving day but after a while they'll come back and get you if you cannot match up with them on the other parts of the game...
I've watched Clay Thompson serve great and still lose a match because of a few points turn around where he cannot stay with the rallies ,and Clay's serve is almost always on...

I agree. ur making my point for me though. im not saying you only have to have a serve. u have to have good groundstrokes too. But you have to have a good serve too. thats what im saying. all the guys u mentioned: Mkrtchian has a huge serve, Wang good serve very well placed and hard, spinosa (played him over a year ago) huge serve, Nguyen i havent seen enough. the point is you have to have a big serve as a weapon and good grounstrokes, volleys, etc. If you dont have a semi big serve its tough to win at a high level

DOMINATING THE 16'S AGE DIVISION WOULD MEAN RELATIVELY EFFORTLESSLY BEATING GUYS LIKE JACK SOCK, DENIS KUDLA, MITCHEL FRANK, RAYMOND SARMIENTO JUST TO NAME A FEW.

aRE U SERIOUSLY MAKING THIS CLAIM IN YOUR RIGHT MIND? I DO LIKE DEIT'S GAME AND THINK HE IS VERY TALENTED, BUT SOME STATEMENTS THAT YOU MAKE FORCE ME TO QUESTION THE SANITY OF THE AUTHOR.

LET'S NOT GET CARRIED AWAY HERE, DEIT IS GOOD FOR A 13 YEAR OLD, BUT TO CLAIM THE DOMINANCE OF AN AGE GROUP AFTER COUPLE OF "GLORIOUS" LOCAL LEVEL WINS IN THE SECTION.....COME NOW, BRAD. LET'S NOT START FLYING BEFORE WE LEARN TO CRAWL. YOU MAY DO SOME DAMAGE TO DEIT'S IMAGE WITH YOUR OUTLANDISH STATEMENTS. DO YOUR OWN KID A FAVOR, DO NOT TURN INTO RICHARD WILLIAMS, LET THE KID DEVELOP AND BE.

agreed. saying a 12 year old will be dominating the 16s is a little insane
