Track tennis matches to build better players
What's New in The Midwest in 2012   2012 has brought many new changes for junior competitive tournament players. National USTA has made significant changes to the tournament schedule which have reduced opportunities for many. Meanwhile, the Midwest USTA has responded to the requests of players and parents with several notablechanges: • Midwest now "owns" the elevated tournaments (Levels 1-5); this should ensure more consistent standards for tournaments, including:
o No matches starting before 8am
o 12 hours guaranteed between matches from one day to the next
o For 14s, 12s, and10-and-Unders, no matches start/resume after 9pm
o For 16s and 18s, no matches start/resume after 10pm
• Efforts made to better distribute elevated tournaments (Levels 1-5) geographically (53% in Michigan and Ohio, down from 71%)
• All events begin on Saturday
• There are elevated tournaments during all holidays, so less school is missed
• New 2-day 32-draw tournaments added
• Many more doubles added, most with a one-match consolation
• All are Feed-In Consolation
• Boys and Girls 10s compass draws added
• Concurrent events of different levels held on same weekend, allowing players to sign up for both Let us know your thoughts on these changes....join our Facebook community!  
Bringing Sportsmanship Back into Junior Tennis Kicking an empty tennis can across the court, smashing a racquet into the ground, yelling curses in frustration. While this is bad enough when it occurs on the professional circuit, increasingly, this type of poor sportsmanship happens with our younger players, in the world of junior tennis.
Track tennis matches to build better players Advertisement "Did I make that many unforced errors on my forehand?" my son, a Division I college tennis player, asked. "Well…yes. Let's take a look," I replied, showing him the stats I had charted on my iPhone during one of his recent team matches. "I knew I made some mistakes on my forehand but I didn't know there were so many…I guess I need to be more patient next time. Let me see my first serve percentage." he said, eager to check out the rest of his stats. We sat down and started a good discussion about the match while going over his and his opponent's stats on my iPhone.
