Centercourt’s own Samir Banerjee capped off his 2017 with a bang as he rolled through the Boys 14’s singles and doubles draw out west in Tucson, Arizona for the L1 USTA National Winter Championships. Samir has been training at the Centercourt Academy for a couple of years now, and it’s very clear to see all the hard work paying off.
“I have been playing quite well since the National Indoor Hard Court Championships in November, and was able to take that form and momentum into the highly coveted and historic Orange Bowl tournament, as well as Winter Nationals,” said Samir.
“Centercourt Tennis Academy has played a vital role in preparing me to compete at the national level. I now recognize the importance of planning for each match both on and off the court physically and mentally. I would like to thank Coach Clay, and Coach Adrian for their pivotal roles in preparing me to become the best player I can be. Having the opportunity to train at Centercourt with other high quality players and coaches is what I attribute to getting me where I am today,” Samir also added.
Coach Adrian Contreras, Director of Elite Tennis at Centercourt Tennis Academy has seen Samir really prove himself as of late as well. “Team Centercourt is extremely proud of Samir and what he has accomplished in Tucson. Samir is a very resilient and resourceful competitor. Not only does he love to play the big points, he is exceptional at finding the right combinations necessary to stay aggressive while playing high percentage tennis. Samir has continued to improve his tactical discipline and awareness; areas which I feel led him to his championship run so dominantly. We look forward to Samir’s continual tennis development here at Centercourt.”
Centercourt Tennis Academy looks forward to the continued success of it’s players heading into 2018. We hope to see many more trophies in the future for Samir and all of our hard-working players. Once again, congratulations to Samir and best wishes for continued success in your career!
