Great to watch, thanks for the vid! You guys have some serious skill and talent.

Lukhas 04-26-2013 11:34 PM

Well... Who is who?

The guy in blue looks very good. He hit at some ridiculous angles at some points off his forehand.

Agree, they are at least 4.5 level.

Maybe. They are college players, they're higher than 4.5 IMO. They are not pro form yet, but they're much better than 4.5. 4.0 (Jason) to 5.5 (Granville) stands the TW playtesters, although they may be playing better than this in tournaments, or better than most 4.0/5.0 since they play tennis for a living.

Well, he's correct. A 5.5 is at least a 4.5.:twisted: If he proves himself in college, which he will unless he's injured, then he'll be considered a 6.0.

I'm not overly impressed by Gage's serve, but he hits some nice forehands in that video. Also, the quickness of his little adjustment steps is impressive!

Oh, I missed this part. Please, do share, I like to see good doubles. Although you need a high enough camera angle to be able to appreciate something...:(

EDIT: So I guess Gage Brymer is the guy with Babolat Propulse 4 and APD, isn't he? What. A. Forehand. No wonder he doesn't play many backhands with such a shot... :lol: His BH kinda sits and go much slower in comparison. But that point is blew off by the fact he's able to use it to set up a forehand winner.

Nostradamus 04-27-2013 05:47 PM

You guys have any videos of Stanford, USC or UCLA matches ? or Women's singles tournament matches ? Krista Hardebeck in the Final.

Yep, that's Brymer. He's playing for UCLA next year. They have a bunch of big name recruits. He was the top of the rankings from what I've seen of the graduating class from California. I don't know how he compared for the entire nation.

I know University tennis/sports are quite big in America, but I'm not accustomed that system being French. Not that there isn't university sports in France, it's just not as big IMO and I simply don't know how it works. Can someone give me some informations please?

He's #2 in the US of A in 18 and under. Just won the Easter Bowl and is probably a 4.0 [sarcasm].

Hum... What's the Easter Bowl? I check the website and I don't understand much except it seems to be an important tournament. And 2nd 18 and under player of all the country? Now that's impressive. EDIT: Not familiar at all with the ITF system in USA. Say, how come he was unseeded? I mean, even in France you're given a ranking if you lay off from tennis few years to avoid old guys not having a ranking but knowing how to play to be mixed with complete beginners.

2ndServe 04-27-2013 09:29 PM

that guy's footwork is top notch

he's unseeded because he doesnt play ITF-sanctioned tournaments very much. most of those tournaments are in europe. his national federation ranking is very good, but the international ranking from ITF is another system entirely.

It's just college team tennis. There is a national champion team in each division and then also individual titles. Also, League titles. A school like UCLA wants to be nationally competitive in Division 1 (the best division - UCLA has something like 40,000 students), so they are willing to give full athletic scholarships to good players. Some of the best players in Europe are playing for US Colleges because they can get a free education playing tennis, and the competition can be quite good.

It used to be that very good players went directly to the tour, but it seems that young guys are having a harder time competing these days, so some choose to do some college tennis first. Isner is an example.

The players on a team like UCLA probably start at 5.5 ntrp and go up from there. Some of the better players hope to have a professional career.

From what I understand, Brymer goes to a public high school and doesn't travel much to play, so he doesn't have an international ranking. However, he has done well against some players who do.

NLBwell 04-27-2013 10:25 PM

Amazing how things go. He won the first round in 3 sets, won the second in 3 sets with a tiebreaker, and ended up winning the Easter Bowl tournament.

Ojai is a really prestigous tournament and i was greatly honored to even compete in it let alone win a round (doubles only, not qualified for singles)

Imteresting note: its funny how players scream "lets go norcal/socal!"

So basically he's the personification of the guy no one wants to draw? Impressive.
