Friday Redhawks tennis will compete in a tournament at Rockhill High School. Although some players are out due to injury, the door is opened for others.

Redhawks tennis heads into their next tournament of the spring season at Rockhill Hight School on Friday. Although some athletes are out due to injuries, assistant coach Neil Grobler this isn’t entirely a bad thing.

“We are looking forward to [Friday’s] tournament,” Grobler said. “It should be a nice day weather wise, which will be a welcomed change. Although we won’t be competing with our full team, it affords some of our other players an opportunity to compete. We have really placed an emphasis on taking care of holding serve during practice this week. I’m hopeful that the work we put in during practice will translate into a high percentage of serve games won.”

As one of the athletes still competing, freshman Ranveer Awasthi is seizing the moment to improve.

“[I am] mostly confident and determined to do better after the last tournament,” Awasthi said. “I will have to use hard shots to overpower players, [so] I am working on aspects of my form and how I am hitting the shots. With my partner, I will focus on communicating and taking the right balls to back him up in the rallies, adapting to a more team-based work style.”
