Inside Junior Tennis; Quigley to Kentucky; Levine Tops Young

Kevin McClure and I are not doing our Inside Junior Tennis podcast quite as frequently as in the past, but I hope we can still hit all the high spots every three weeks or so. On Thursday, we talked about the ITA Indoor, National Signing Day, Melanie Oudin and Filip Krajinovic, Break and Hold, Coaches' Q and A and the upcoming Florida swing.

The Bluegrass State's Blue Chip, Eric Quigley, announced his decision to attend Kentucky on the Tennis Recruiting Network late last week, and on Friday, the Wildcats' Dennis Emery commented on the signing on ukathletics.com.

And tonight in Champaign, Jesse Levine defeated Donald Young in two tiebreakers to win his second consecutive challenger. Both the previous meetings between them (in Tulsa and Louisville) this fall went to Young easily; this win demonstrates what an impact confidence can have in reversing results. The USTA Challenger of Champaign website has the finals story here.

I'm very surprised by Quigley's decision. I had heard he was a huge UL fan and wouldn't go to UK. I guess he wanted to stay closer to home instead of playing for a title contender.

Kentucky is very lucky to get another good kid, not to mention a good player. Good Luck, Eric!
