Rain Suspends Third Round Play at Nationals


A thunderstorm moved into the Kalamazoo area at 9:15 a.m., suspending play on all courts.

Egger did win pretty easily in doubles today. I hope that helps him with his serve and volley game. Sometimes it just takes more practice to get the confidence to make an aggressive game work. Some former starts were winning doubles tournaments well before they reached their singles peak.

Actually, Egger has been serving and volleying for many years. He even served and volleyed his way to win the Little Mo Nationals when he was about 10 years old, believe it or not.

His problem is not getting used to serving and volleying. It is lack of groundstroke power and possibly some burnout.

why does everyone talk about egger all the time? he was amazing in twelves really good in fourteens and has proven to be only an average 16s player. there are a lot of kids that do the same thing. dont you think the usta should pay attention to the players pattern that is going upwards??

Egger gets talked about all the time, because he is a player who has not "flown under the radar" in his career as a junior. And especially, his involvement and support from the USTA. He has had many good results in the juniors, but if it were not for the above fact, even with his recent stumbles, there would be hardly a mention of him. It is obviously very annoying to people that someone who the USTA believes in and is supporting is having a rough patch.

It comes with the territory. If you are picked and supported by the USTA High Performance, than you have to deal with the attention and infamy that comes with it. No free lunches, you have to like the limelight. Champions are born and not made, certainly not by USTA High Performance.
