Jarmere Jenkins Profile; SEC Indoor Nets Another Georgia Champion; Ryan Harrison Australian Open Interview

While I was at the Extreme Tennis Academy Futures last week, I had an opportunity to speak with Jarmere Jenkins about his plans. It serves as this week's post on The Tennis Recruiting Network.

The men's SEC Indoor Championships were held in New Orleans last weekend, and for the second year in a row, a Georgia player took the title, with Luis Flores this year's champion. For details on Flores' win and the rest of the tournament, see georgiadogs.com. Tennesee's John Patrick Smith, a freshman, had impressive wins over seed Robbye Poole of Ole Miss and Greg Ouellette of Florida before losing to Mississippi State's Ivan Bjelica in the semifinals.

Ryan Harrison, who has reached the singles semifinals in the Australian Open juniors is the last American with a shot at a title. The usta.com website features a video interview with Harrison today.

This weekend Tulsa hosts Stanford and UGA. In addition, Stanford plays UGA also in Tulsa. That's a good weekend of tennis. I wonder if they will have live stats for the Stan-UGA match.
