Re: Tamaryn Hendler
on juniortennis :
Just twelve months ago, Tammy won the 14s singles title here, while Michelle hoisted aloft the girls 16s singles trophy and the prestigious Rising Star Award.
In Tammy's match she faced some big serving from the German, but it did little to daunt her, as she whipped the ball back with some impressive depth. "It's all got to do with my practicing here," she grinned. "I practice with men everyday and they have all got even bigger serves, so I was just prepared for it and it showed."
Tammy loves being able to play her matches from home. "It feels like heaven," she admitted. "Finally I can jump over the wall, go home, come back and play my match." Seeing her friends, coaches and family watching only encourages her to play even better. In the summer she did some serious traveling and played eight ITF junior circuit tournaments, winning a grade 2 and reaching quarterfinals at the Japan Open grade A.
