Hello everyone! 2015 Zero 1 kicked started in Pattaya @ the beautiful Siam Bayshore Resort & Spa Hotel. Sixteen juniors are participating in this rewarding, educational, and fun tennis camp. Head coaching staff Mr. Kaneko Hideki and Mr. Kenichiro Tsukada will be making their way over to Japan spreading the Zero 1 camp into nine different cities.
Last week I had the privilege to briefly oversee four ITF Junior players from Japan. During the second week, Matsuda Misaki (photo: right) won her way from the qualifier and into the main draw ultimately defeating Khim Igulpas (PHI)  3-6, 7-5, 7-5 in the finals. My first impression about Misaki was her on-court smile and powerful ground strokes especially her two-handed backhand.
