Selection Process for 2015 Nationals & Other Stuff

So much has been going on these past couple of weeks, and I’ve been remiss in posting – for that, I apologize!

The first thing you need to know is that the selection process for the 2015 National Clay Court and National Hard Court Championships has been posted. For the 16s and 18s, draw size has been increased back to 2013 numbers, 192 for singles and 96 for doubles. For the 14s and 16s, draw sizes are 128 for singles and 64 for doubles. Players will be chosen based on the criteria in the document posted here:

The next thing is that USTA is holding its third TeamUSA online forum March 31st at 8:00pm ET. To register for a spot, click here. You’ll then receive an email confirmation with details for logging into the webinar.

For those interested, I posted an album on Facebook of my photos from my trip to the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells. Click here to view the shots. My trip was absolutely fantastic! The weather was perfect, and I had the chance to see some incredible matches. My Player Guest credentials allowed me to eat with the players which was a real treat! At different times, I found myself sitting at a table next to David Ferrer, Andy Murray, Jelena Jankovic, Donald Young, Sloane Stevens, Nick Kyrgios, and John Isner. Unbelievable! No photos are allowed in Player Dining, though, so you’ll just have to take my word for it!

Finally, I’m really proud to announce that the Huffington Post asked me to participate in its series on youth sports entitled The Tackle. You can read my piece by clicking here. It’s a slight re-write of an article I posted on this site a few weeks ago, but I hope you’ll take a look and share it with your friends. The entire series is terrific, so please click on the various articles and let me know what you think.
