Coach’s Tip: 2022 Aussie Open Predictions
-Coach Ian Purganan, Tennis Professional, Mill Creek Tennis Club

Contact Coach Ian at florian.purganan@gmail.com or
call (206) 383-0720 to schedule a private lesson.
Rates: $65 members, $85 non-members.

Intro: The first grand slam of 2022, the Australian Open, is slated for January 17-30, 2022 at Melbourne Park. Last year’s event saw a couple familiar faces raise the trophy: Naomi Osaka won her 2nd title, while Novak Djokovic won his record 9th title. For 2022, prize money is increased to $4.4 million each for the winners of the men’s and women’s singles draws.

Women’s Draw

Favorite: Ash Barty is the No. 1 female player in the world, and is playing on her home turf. Her slice backhand is a thing of beauty, and she will have the crowds behind her. But, no local player has won the Australian Open singles title in 44 years, so history is not on her side.

My Pick: As Coach Rudy Tomjanovich of the Houston Rockets said, “Don’t underestimate the heart of a champion.” For all the criticism she has endured this year, Naomi Osaka is still the reigning champion down under. She has won a total of four Grand Slams, and has taken much deserved time away from the sport to focus on her wellbeing – something we should all aspire to do for ourselves. She is hungry to get back atop the sport she loves.

Wild Card: Simona Halep has fallen to No. 20 in the WTA rankings, but she made the finals of the Australian Open in 2018; the semifinals in 2020, and the quarterfinals in 2014, 2015, and 2021. She is an aggressive baseliner, and her defensive skills and court coverage are second to none. Watch out for Halep to make noise at the first Grand Slam of the year.

Men’s Draw

Favorite: Assuming he will play, Novak Djokovic has to be the hands down favorite to win the title for a record 10th time. He is arguably the fastest and fittest player on the tour, and has no weaknesses. If anything, the only person who can beat Djokovic is Djokovic. After implosions at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics and U.S. Open finals, he is motivated to move ahead of the Big Three and win a record 21st Grand Slam title.

My Pick: As unaesthetic as they are, Daniil Medvedev’s unorthodox groundstrokes have produced tremendous results, taking him to No. 2 in the world and the 2021 U.S. Open title. Medvedev is a wall, and just does not miss on either side. It is difficult to hit through him, his defense is world class, and he is speedy for a lanky fellow. He might just make it back-to-back Grand Slams.

Wild Card: 2021 was a breakout year for Casper Ruud, who is my personal favorite current player on the tour. He won a tour-leading five titles, went 27-10 on hardcourts, and currently sits at No. 8 in the world. His best grand slam result was at the Australian Open in 2021, where he reached the 4th Round. Is 2022 the year for the Norwegian to claim his maiden slam? It might very well be so.

Coach’s Tip: Developing a Slice Backhand

Developing slice, particularly the slice backhand, will add another repertoire to your tennis game, and can be used effectively as a defensive shot as well as an offensive weapon. I’ve noticed that slice is not used as regularly as it could be amongst both club and junior players. The benefits, however, of using slice are tremendous, so of which include:

Giving your opponent a different look/change in pace or rhythm 

· The ball stays low so your opponent has to really get down, making it more difficult to attack

· Extra reach on the backhand side, and gives you more time to recover

· Easier to play low balls

· The backspin on the slice backhand, particularly when hit at an opponent at the net, can often lead to errors due to mistiming

· Effective as an approach shot

To hit a slice backhand, follow these guidelines:

· Use the continental grip.

· The swing for a slice backhand has to go from high to low. So, when taking the racquet back, ensure that it comes high above the shoulder. This is key because the racquet face has to be open when making contact with the ball.

· When making contact with the ball, the strings of your racquet should slide down the back of the ball. Think about trying to cut through the ball, so the bottom side of the racquet should lead the contact to the ball.

· Any motion from the arm should come from the shoulder. There shouldn’t be any body movement on the follow through, so you should stay sideways throughout the shot.

Coach’s Tip: How to Get Back Into the Swing of Things
-Kim Somerville, Tennis Professional, Mill Creek Tennis Club

Contact Coach Kim at drkimsomerville@aol.com or call (425) 314-5929 to schedule a private lesson.
Rates: $65 members, $80 non-members.

WARM UP, not five minutes of hitting but a real dynamic warmup, work up a little sweat (a nice glow). Wake up those tennis muscles. Twenty minutes of warmup should prepare the body for some good tennis. Shadow swing all strokes, 20 forehands, backhands, serves, volleys and overheads, add the footwork before adding the ball.

Now hit the courts. Don’t go all out, start with some simple hitting drills. Some ideas: Play some short court/mini tennis, and not just 5 minutes. Play a set of mini tennis, underhand serve to start off point, use only deuce court and then ad court. Get use to feeling the racquet in your hand again, the ball control and your feet moving on the court.

Try a 10/20/100 ball rally, a 10-ball rally getting the ball past the base line every shot before offensive play, try cross court only, down the line only. Not challenging enough, try hitting alley to alley, down the line and crosscourt. I’m sure you get the picture.

When serving for the first time, ease up! Work on placement, spins, consistency. Add the power later on. Lastly and probably most importantly, cool down after playing. Do your static stretches. Your body deserves a good slow easy stretch after it’s been shocked into activity, and it will reward you with a little less stiffness the next day. Welcome back to the courts everyone. We are looking forward to getting back to the swing of things, hope to see you there.

Coach’s Tip: Name It Doubles Drill
-Kim Somerville, Tennis Professional, Mill Creek Tennis Club


Contact Coach Kim: email: drkimsomerville@aol.com or call

Rates: $65/ Hr members, $80/ Hr non-members.

Next time you hit the court for a good doubles match, try some new tactics. ‘ To improve, something has to change’.

This drill helps players learn a variety of styles of play. Each player gets to choose a ‘rule’ for the next game or next four games or the next set.

EXAMPLES OF SOME ‘RULES’

1.     Returner has to lob the ball

2.      Server has to serve underhand

3. Serving team has to play Australian or ‘I’ formation

4. No bounce rule (after the serve, lose a point if the ball hits the ground)

5. Only one serve

6. Receiving team must play from the baseline

7. Back “I” formation. Server has to get the next ball no matter where it is hit.

8. Receiver must chip and charge

9. Receiver can only hit a forehand (or backhand) return

10. Everyone plays from the baseline

There are endless options to choose from, but the point is that if players are willing

 to try these tactics even if it is only a few games, they might realize how well

they work and then they can adopt these as a strategy when they desire.

Tennis players who consistently win their matches bring more to the court than a killer forehand or serve. Winning is an art that involves the ability to observe your opponent and act on what you see. It also takes mental fortitude and an ability to protect, and even mask, your own weaknesses.  Here are a few strategies that will help you become a better competitor and, ultimately, win more matches.

Pay Attention to Your Opponent’s “Current” Style of Play

Top players don’t usually stick to a losing game for long. They’ll often shift to a different style of play. They may lose the first set with plan A. But they’ll go onto win the match with plan B or C.

Stick With What Works

If your strategy is working don’t change it until your opponent has proven he/she can beat it. In other words, stick with the same old boring winner. “Never change a winning gamealways change a losing one. ” Bill Tilden

Watch How Your Opponent Moves
Some opponents are terrific from the baseline yet pitiful while pushed back or pulled forward into the forecourt.  Pay attention to what they like and don’t like.  You should know your opponent’s strengths and weaknesses at the end of the match.  The trick is to ascertain this while the match is still in progress.  Try some of these tips on your next match. Keep your mind clear and enjoy the mental chess.
