This past Saturday, December 6, JMTA players Dominick Mosejczuk and Julia Werdiger competed in an invitation-only 10 & Under Match Play at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, coordinated by USTA National Junior Development Coach Erik Kortland. The event featured 6 players, two girls and four boys, split into two teams to compete in a Davis/Fed cup style match. The players were asked to name their team after an American tennis player; Dom chose John McEnroe, of course.
Julia competed for the opposing team, “Team Bryan Brothers” (since the John McEnroe name was already taken) and won all of her matches, including prevailing over Dom in the final match. Other than his loss to Julia, Dom was undefeated.
“They were definitely the best in the group and competed so well,” said JMTA Associate Director, Nate Emge. “I was so proud of how both Dom and Julia represented JMTA with hard work during every point, and smiles after every point. This was a great experience for the kids and also for me!”
