Tennis Talk – May 2019

As spring rolls around, the province’s elite junior tennis players are rounding into form for Tennis BC’s Provincial Selection Series. Many of those players train tirelessly right here on our courts – and the results of their efforts are showing.

Our High Performance Director, Sasha Boskovic, was proud to have one of his UBC Tennis Centre athletes in the finals of every draw at the U16 Outdoor Selection Tournament #1!

Aidan Tseng took home the boys doubles title, Henry Ren finished second in the boys singles, and Keita Duclos came third in boys singles.

Vanessa Kahkesh had a stellar weekend as runner-up in both the girls singles and doubles – falling to the top seed in each.

Next up for our top talent is the U18 Outdoor Selection Tournament #2, which will see a bevy of UBC Tennis Centre athletes competing against the best of the best on May 11-14 in Burnaby.

Best of luck to all UBC Tennis Centre athletes as they prepare for an amazing outdoor tournament season!

Tennis Talk – April 2019

Tennis in Canada is on the rise yet again with a new generation of teenagers inspiring athletes across the country, and the world, with recent international success.

Bianca Andreescu (age 18, world No. 23) wowed the tennis community by getting through qualifiers and winning Indian Wells over former world No. 1 Angelique Kerber. Denis Shapovalov (age 19, world No. 20) and Felix Auger-Aliassime (age 18, world No. 33) both reached the semi finals in Miami and continue their own ascent to the upper echelon of the sport.

That buzz from our country’s top talent was also felt right here at the UBC Tennis Centre this month as we hosted the next group of up-and-comers at the U14 Indoor Junior National Championships.

British Columbia’s own Stewart Aronson was named the Boys U14 Junior National Champion with a 4-6, 6-2, 6-4 victory over Ontario’s Aleksander Mitric, while Kayla Cross of Ontario defeated Alberta’s Martyna Ostryzgalo 6-1, 6-2 to capture the Girls title.

Six of our own UBC Tennis Centre players took part in the national event on home court in what was a wonderful display of junior tennis in Canada.
