L-R Me, Matt, Gary Pederson, Fred Drilling (Bartlett pic)
This week was the inaugural play of a new ITF tournament at the Sanchez-Casal Academy (in Naples Bath & Tennis); and Matt Davie (age 77) “played down” to team with me for 70s doubles.
There were players from all over the world in this event, which precedes the World Team play, singles and doubles championships being played in subsequent weeks at the new USTA facility in Lake Nona, Florida. But the small draw in 70 doubles was an all-American affair.
My solid-serving lefty partner and I drew the #2 seeds, Don Long and Don Keenan, on Tuesday. Long is one of the top 70s players in the country and had teamed with Fred Drilling a couple of tournaments back to win the National Clay Courts in Pinehurst.
Matt and I squeaked out a close first set at 6-4; but shot out of the gate in the second set to take a (insurmountable??) 5-0 lead. But they held serve for 5-1… broke my serve for 5-2… held serve for 5-3. Matt was serving, with Mr. MO solidly on the Long/Keenan side of the court; but he did his thing and we held serve for a 6-4, 6-3 upset win.
Today, we had to face the #1 seeded team of former ATP touring pro and World #1 Fred Drilling and his first-time partner of Gary Pederson. It was extremely windy, with the ball moving 5-10 feet sideways on some shots.
The first set was mostly all on serve, until we broke and held for a close 6-4 opener. The second set was equally close… and again, we prevailed for another big upset and a 6-4, 6-4 victory.
Fred could take solace in winning the 75 singles and taking home $100 in prize money ($0 for doubles winners); and Don Long could take solace in playing the 70 singles finals tomorrow. And Larry Turville will be playing the 65 singles finals as well.

With no false modesty, this has to be one of the most successful tennis weeks in my “middle of the pack” tennis career… in addition to the two big tournament wins, it started on Monday with a practice doubles match win with partner Howie Ames over Jimmy Parker!

Very nice George! A big Congrats!
Ken, thanks. George
George, that’s a tremendous series of wins! Did they make you pee in a cup?
Rick, too dehydrated to pee! Thanks. George
Congratulations on your great tournament!!
Congrats George! Great tournament!
Great wins George. Your chest will really be puffed out when you get to Newks!
Andy. Thanks. George
Congrats to you and Matt! Two great wins!
Good job George!
Thanks Coach! George
Congratulations, George!! Middle of the top of the pack, I would say!
Nick, thanks. Are you in Siberia? george
Great tournament results for you and your next year 75+ partner – should help get you seeding consideration – Also a nice practice win over Jimmy Parker who won the 70 singles at Pinehurst recently adding to his men’s total gold balls #1 status – he has a ways to go to catch the women’s #1, tennis hall of fame member and mother of Brian Cheney, Dodo Cheney – she only leads by a little more than 250 gold balls! She must be smiling down at us from the #1 tennis facility in heaven!
Winder, thanks. i was thinking the same about seedings. But doesn’t Jimmy have something like 125 gold balls himself?? george
George: Yes, Jimmy is in the 125 gold balls range ; Dodo finished with 394 Gold Balls! More than amazing record. Winder
Well done George. Your hard work is paying off!! I had an ankle fusion August 17. I am out of a cast and into a boot and things seem to be healing well. Hopefully I will be hitting balls on January.
Bill, I have been following your ankle issue and hope to see you back on the court asap. George
Tennis academies are set up all over the world. Their purpose is to ensure the raw but visible talent of the people who would like to attend is nurtured and groomed. Their managerial, educational, and academic, knowledge has allowed students set higher standards.
Each year an academy welcomes many players from up to 25 years in age who have a common goal to grow, learn and attend a tennis academy. A developed set of skills towards listening, training, challenges and the desire for efficiency are what the academics desires as well as the students.
The coaches generally are committed, passionate as well as demanding. They challenge themselves daily in order to offer the best solutions to support and coaching to the players. The program at the academy needs to enable the harmonious combination of intense training, school curriculum, and tournaments.
A typical week at an academy will ensure students get their full potential out with continuous practice. Attending school will be mandatory while practice and physical training is an everyday routine. Students at the academy will have to push themselves very far leaving very little free time for socializing.
There is no specific path for someone who wants to be a champion at tennis. The correct amount of training and practice will assist with achieving this goal. If someone has the skill and desire to go pro it is not always an easy decision to make. Factors like methods, location, size, costs, accommodation and age group need to be taken into reflected when facing this type decision. The methods used by the academies may vary according to what the player’s needs, wants and talents are.

Founded in 1998 by former Spanish touring pros Emilio Sánchez and Sergio Casal, this academy outside Barcelona operates both full-time and short-time academies for juniors as well as training facilities for touring pros. Its "High Performance" programs take a broad approach that goes beyond technique, tactics, fitness, and mental skills by also including periodization and planning, nutrition, equipment services, and specialist coaches. Its campus comprises 27 red-clay, hard, Rebound Ace, and artificial grass courts as well as padel tennis courts, a fitness center, tennis lab (for viewing videos), jogging tracks, swimming pools, a restaurant (with food choices sensitive to a broad variety of nationalities), and a dormitory. During the academic year, about 130 students are enrolled full time—either living in dorms on campus or locally with their own or host families—representing 35 nationalities. With so much diversity, all of the teaching is by necessity conducted in English.
"We used to have top players," Sergio Casal told me when I toured the facility, referring to such bold-face tennis names as Svetlana Kuznetsova, Andy Murray, Ana Ivanovic, Grigor Dmitrov, Garabiñe Muguruza, and others, who have spent extended periods training there. "But now we are working with the base," he continued. There are two short-term programs, which can be booked in increments of a week: one that runs year-round, a second in summer, both with language study as part of the curriculum. Essentially, campers spend three-plus hours/day on tennis, another one-plus hours on fitness. "Our theory is the body and the brain don't support operating more than three hours of court, at least not every day." For those enrolled longer term, the hours devoted to tennis remains the same, but the curriculum expands to include classes at the international school established at the academy and based on the American system. "Our philosophy is to play tennis and to study. In one location a player has all the tools to be better."
"Everyone is trains on the same system; a way to move, a way to defend, a way to recover," Casal explained. "Clay forces you to become fitter and mentally stronger. The points are long and you have to get used to that be competitive and to win. It's essential to be good on the baseline, but beyond that we teach you how to play in every area of the court." From his perspective, training on clay produces a much more rounded competitor: "We can produce more complete players because you cannot rely so easily on a big weapon."
For campers enrolled longer term, the routine is broken up by tournaments, either at the academy itself, in nearby Barcelona, or farther afield. One advantage to this location is that there are so many tournaments in the region (much of their academic work in online so they can keep up even when on the road).
Casal himself is not just a name on the sign at the entrance. "I like to spend time on the court," he told me. "I can help much more on court than in the office. I can express my feeling and help them more. I can impart my experience. I like to play with the kids."

Here's what others have had to say about Academia Sánchez-Casal.
Accommodation - our son, 13, wanted to stay with us so we tried to establish what the onsite accommodation comprised. Again, little information available, no photos, just 'its nice' from someone on the end of the phone. We said we'll try it. Big mistake!
Upon arrival the taxi driver drops you in a car park, no signs to tell you where to go, no one to greet you. Instead you take a guess at the direction and lug all your luggage in 35 degree heat down a long walkway (the first part gravel). You go in the big building and there's a desk with a woman sat at it. No smiles, no welcome, no offer of a drink or help with luggage. Just told to wait 10 minutes for someone to check us in.
Once they've got your credit card swiped they take you to a shed which is supposed to be for you to stay in! Completely wooden paneled like a sauna inside with 2 mdf strips against a wall for a bed! We walked straight back out and ordered a taxi to the nearest hotel. When I asked for a refund on the accommodation I was told there's a 2 night minimum cancellation charge! Unbelievable!
The tennis was utterly rubbish! We have been to Bollittieri (excellent) and La Manga (ok) but this was the standard of an average local tennis club back home. The kids spent 5 hours a day hitting balls to each other, there was no structure to the program, the coaches showed little interest, one sat smoking by the pool every lunchtime. Ratio of one coach per 8 kids, not good, especially when 2 coaches had a chat together leaving 16 kids to get on with it. One good coach that was there was leaving at the end of the week. They were told to play tiebreaks against each other or games such as champions. All basic holiday camp stuff, not what we signed up for. Luckily the kids that were there were a pretty good standard (not being regulars there!) so at the very least they were hitting against decent players.
The 'fitness' sessions were a joke, just playing games like dodgeball, not a professional fitness session at all. There was no strength & conditioning all week. Half the kids were picking up injuries every morning. Not sure if this was through lack of decent warm up or if they just wanted to sit out as it was so tedious.
The food was basic cheap stuff. Nothing organic or natural here! We came to Sanchez with a view to sending our son here full time. we'll never be going back!"—C.B., Adv., September 2012
The academia is located near the Barcelona airport. They have 20+ courts (half clay), two fitness facilities, pool, paddle tennis, beach volley ball, restaurant etc. A competitor to Boleteri and Saddlebrook this Academia is designed for children. In July their were close to 400 children attending a week camp (many were boarding). Our children attended from 8AM to 8PM and received tennis instruction for 5 hours/day.
My wife and I went for 3 hours a day. 2 hours of tennis and 1 hour of physical fitness. Instruction was good. Lot's of balls and drills. Particular focus was placed on foot work and movement on clay. The adult classes had a ratio of 3 to 1, and the children had a ratio of 4-6 to 1.
Surprisingly my favorite aspect of the academia was the personal training. The instructor taught my wife and I a lot of new stretching the strength training technics which were tailored for tennis.
A World-Class Tennis Academy
Barcelona is one of the most attractive destinations in Spain, and at the same time plays host to a world-class tennis academy. Founded in 1998 by Emilio Sánchez Vicario (former World #7 player) and Sergio Casal, the Academia Sánchez-Casal is an educational institution with the highest standards.

Lose Yourself in Barcelona
Barcelona is one of the most exciting cities in the world, so make sure you take the time to enjoy the city. This amazing city has served as inspiration to writers, poets, song makers, and even architects. Barcelona is blessed with the biggest collection of architectural works by Antoni Gaudi.
Gaudi’s masterpieces seem to be found at every corner of the city, not to mention his most majestic piece of work: La Sagrada Familia. Barcelona is a city that can be discovered by foot, bicycle or public transport, so clear your schedule for a day (or two) and give yourself a chance to properly discover the heart and soul of Catalunya.
Stop at a tapas bar and enjoy the amazing food Barcelona has to offer. Traditional food from all over the country can be found is Barcelona, as the amalgamation of Spanish culture make it even more interesting. If you still have some energy after your hours of tennis, your tapas and your sangria, head out to discover the truly unique nightlife of this city. Tapas are seafood-rich, but also come in vegetarian and other styles.
There are beautiful beaches located only 15 kms from the Academia Sanchez-Casal. It's worth the trip to cool down after your intense tennis training camp and rejoice in the beach waters, especially during warm, summer months.
Academia Sanchez-Casal is fully equipped to provide quality tennis lessons and training programs. These include 27 outdoor courts that vary between hard courts, clay courts and grass courts.
There are many accommodation options that cater to all travelers and family sizes. The Academy offers three types of on campus accommodation:
The apartments have their own separate entryway providing exclusive access to the apartment area via an electronic card. Apartment users have the possibility to request half board or full board in the restaurant.
The campus security is monitored 24 hours a day by staff, and through internal CCTV cameras.
The Academia Sánchez-Casal, in conjunction with ES International School, offers players the possibility of completing an American educational program on campus. That way, young players can pursue their dreams of becoming a professional without interrupting their studies.
The school program is offered in a format that makes it fully compatible with a student's sport training without undermining academic quality. The program requires students to complete at least their Senior Year, or twelfth grade, of the American secondary education system in order to graduate.
The academic year is divided into two academic semesters:
Those students attending the school's third through eighth grades will have their academic classes in the morning from 08:00 to 13:55, and their tennis training in the afternoon. Those students attending ninth through twelfth grades will have tennis training in the morning, and have their classes from 12:10 to 17:20.
To make their academic schedules compatible with tennis, the final school and sports training schedule will depend on the grade level of the student and his/her tennis level.

The Language Program offers the possibility of combining weekly, monthly and annual tennis programs with Spanish or English as a Foreign Language (EFL) courses. These are carried out on-site at the Academia Sánchez-Casal campus, and are tailored to fit a young athlete’s schedule.
The language program is perfectly designed for athletes wishing to train in their favorite sport at the Academy while learning Spanish or English. Students are involved in a process of linguistic communication and intensive practice of the four basic elements of language education: oral, comprehension, written and reading proficiency.
With a total of 7½ hours per week, the language courses are delivered in the afternoons, Monday to Friday, making them totally compatible with training at the Academia Sánchez-Casal. Classes can start every Monday, giving students a chance to join after the year has started.
The Food & Beverages department works with the nutrition department in preparing menus and selecting the best, fresh produce. The Academy provides a wide variety of dishes and work to ensure a perfect balance of proper diet for all guests.
The fitness department works together with the Sánchez-Casal Academy tennis coaches in order to improve the physical abilities of players and develop plans to prevent the most common injuries in sports.
The Psychology Department at the Sanchez-Casal Academy aims to establish the emotional, academic, sporting and social welfare of students.
Video analysis is a tool for finding the strengths and weaknesses of the player. It can detect forms or styles of play that are repeated and develop strategies to overcome them.
