Welcome to Season 8, Episode 37 of the ParentingAces Podcast! My guest this week is Coach Todd Widom discussing how he helped his player, Ronnie Hohmann, prepare for the US Open Juniors. A big thank-you to Colette Lewis of ZooTennis for the photo!
Of course, it’s “just another junior tournament”. However, winning the US Open Juniors is often a stepping stone to a successful collegiate and professional career, so preparing properly can be key. For Ronnie, this is literally his Home Slam since he grew up very close to the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, and there might be some added pressure on him as local friends and family come out to see him play. Handling that pressure, according to Todd, will be one of the keys to Ronnie’s success this week.
As promised in the podcast, here are links to the ITF and USTA Pro Circuit Tournament pages:
