USTA Spotlights ITA No. 1 Jamie Loeb

The JMTA gets a nice shout-out in this week’s USTA College Spotlight feature on our own Jamie Loeb, tearing it up as the No. 1 college player in the country at the University of North Carolina. Loeb concluded the regular season with a stellar 45-2 singles record.

JMTA prides itself on helping prepare students for college tennis, and who better than Jamie to talk about that experience?

She tells USTA’s Sally Milano:

The biggest difference is that in college, you are no longer playing for yourself. Playing for a team is a great experience because you have teammates right beside you cheering you on. In juniors, you are by yourself on the court. The team atmosphere is so much fun and fires me up even more.

The ACC Championships begin Thursday in Cary, N.C. Fans can follow Jamie’s progress and that of her top-seeded Tar Heels teammates at Tournament Central here.

Good luck Jamie!
