JMTA coach Phillip Simmonds accompanied WTA player Madison Brengle to a very successful trip abroad during the Australian Open. The team that paired up during the US Open trained together previously at IMG in Bradenton, Florida. Madison had some great results, reaching her first WTA final in Hobart as well as a 4th round appearance in the Australian Open.
With her ranking nearly cutting in half, Madison is currently ranked 46 (a career high). En route to securing her current ranking Madison defeated the #13 player in the world Andrea Petkovic along with a number of other women within the top 100.
Madison looks to continue her good form with the help of Phillip moving forward into the early spring and the European swing of events coming up which will include the French Open and Wimbledon.
