Braemar Junior Satellite

This weekend marks the first of what I hope will be many tournament trips with my high school tennis students. The Braemar Junior Satellite was attended by Marina Narain, Mady Snider, and Troy Ritter all of whom posted some impressive results.
Troy was competing in his first USTA tournament and won his first match in the B16’s division with a score of 6-3, 6-1. Later Saturday evening, he played a tough match against eventual champion Jeremy Wacker and fell 6-4, 6-3.
Troy was happy to have the experience under his belt and looks forward to more success as he transitions from basketball to tennis season this week for the Laguna Blanca Owls.
Marina Narain was another first time USTA tournament player this weekend, and she is off to an impressive start. Over the weekend, Marina won four matches en-route to winning the G16’s division. She began her tournament with a close three-set match against the top seeded player in her draw and continued to build confidence in the following matches.

Mady Snider is no stranger to the USTA junior circuit, but it’s been a while since she’s been a regular. With a renewed sense of purpose, Mady took out the top seed in her draw with a barrage of winners and followed that win with another Sunday evening to win the G18’s tournament. She looks forward to building confidence in her rally-ball in preparation for the next tournament trip, where we will be headed to Santa Monica.
Thorpe Tennis finished the Braemar JR Satellite with a 7-1 match record and will next be in action at the Dudley Cup the first two weekends of April.

  1. We'll done coach Thorpe! We made it down to the tournament right after Mady had accepted her trophy and in time to get some late dinner on the way home and hear about her play.

    Congratulations to all the players and Coach Thorpe on some excellent results. Keeping up with Marina's progress over the weekend from Hong Kong involved late night texting and not enough sleep on my part, but delighted with the outcome. Keep up the good work.

  3. Great to see the team develop and to read up on it. Well Done! So proud of Marina.Resham Narain
