It’s that time of year when the hard courts of Melbourne are finally recovering from two weeks of tough play and clay courts world-wide are being prepped and groomed for what will be a great season. Yes tennis is back and ready to take center stage this spring. As history books tell us, long matches such as the iconic Michael Chang win over Ivan Lendl in the the fourth round of the 1989 French Open, often reveal the winner after all is left on the court. Who can forget the young American rallying back from two sets down, cramping so badly he was forced to serve underhand. He frustrated the world’s number one and eventually won the match and went on to win the tournament, becoming the youngest male ever to win a grand slam title! Boys and girls everywhere watched the grit and determination this teenager from Southern California displayed. Chang was one of many great young American players at that time: A sassy rebel from Las Vegas named Andre Agassi was on this list. So was the steady Los Angeles resident with cat-like moves called Pete Sampras. And who could forget the student of the sport from Dade City, Florida who would also go on to be a world number one, Jim Courier. These greats inspired the boom in youth tennis and are in-part responsible for the resurgence of American tennis we see today. Fortunately the boys and girls on-the-rise in this great sport have many resources available to them including: State of the art surfaces to play on, advancement in racquet and string technology and of course the best that sports nutrition has to offer.
