Our singular high school senior student will be off to college in a few months, and we could not be more proud of this gentlemen. Aditya Goyal has been with Silicon Valley Tennis for a few years now, and through these past years we have witnessed him grow into a mature, intelligent, hard-working, and accomplished young man. Aditya has been especially persistent in the past two years, entering in as many tournaments as he can to raise his ranking, attending the High Performance clinic nightly, and speaking wit numerous college tennis coaches. Knowing the capabilities and tenacity of Aditya, we have no doubt that he will have much success in the years to come. We wish him nothing short of the best as he continues his next chapter of life, across the country! at Cornell University. Congratulations on your Cornell acceptance and keep up the good work, Aditya!
As advanced technology is utilized in practically all fields and industry, finally the tennis community has a product that will completely alter the way a player trains and studies the game of tennis. Sony has developed a lightweight, wearable product that will track, record, and collect data on virtually every aspect of a player’s stroke and game. Simply attach the Smart Tennis Sensor to the bottom of a tennis racquet, and you are ready to start analyzing your game in-depth. A few data that the Smart Tennis Sensor can detect and display (via an app), include:
Number of shots hit
Ball contact spot
Swing type (i.e. forehand, backhand, volley, topspin, slice, etc.)
Racquet head speed
Ball speed and spin
Don’t just take our word for it though, learn more about the game-changing product in person! This Wednesday, July 29th at 11am, Silicon Valley Tennis will have a representative from Wilson who will be giving a presentation and demonstration of the Smart Tennis Sensor. Come join us and try out the new technology for yourself.
Use an aggressive second serve as your first serve.
By hitting aggressive second serves as first serves constantly, players will naturally improve the consistency and effectiveness of their second serve. They will also relieve some of the anxiety that comes when hitting second serves.
A consistent and well placed first serve is extremely effective. This will keep opponents guessing, leading to weaker returns, and help players establish dominance early in the rally. These advantages will help players understand the importance of placement and having high first serve percentages.
This week, Silicon Valley Tennis would like to turn the spotlight onto a couple of our High Performance students.
Yuu Ishikawa recently competed in the Girls 12s Clay Court Nationals, with a tremendous run. After a tough loss in the Round of 32, Yuu went on to win the northeast consolation, with a grueling 7-5, 6-4 win over the number 3 seed from Illinois. Yuu is currently 12 years old, and just this summer advanced from our Core Skills class to our High Performance class.
Last week, Aditya Goyal won his first tournament, competing in the Boy’s 18 Niru’s Tennis Academy Summer Junior Open Grand Prix. This was just the boost of confidence that Aditya needed, as he took out the number 1 seed in the semifinal before easily taking the win in the final round.
So when you see Yuu and Aditya returning to our practice courts this week, give them a high five and a pat on the back, for their stupendous efforts at these tournament events!
