Thai took the first set from Mitch 63, 2-all in the 2nd set. I'm torn, don't know who to cheer for

Gage Brymer Survives Luca Corinteli at 46th Annual ASICS Easter Bowl

Still cocky

Quote:


RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. (April 14, 2013) – Just because he won four of his six ASICS Easter Bowl matches after dropping the first set and five total three-setters, doesn’t mean that Gage Brymer enjoys playing in them.

“No, I don’t really like them,” was Brymer’s response to a question posed by USTA First Vice President Katrina Adams, who was handling Tennis Channel on-court commentating duties following the unseeded Brymer’s 3-6, 6-4, 6-1, win over Luca Corinteli in the Boy’s 18s ITF singles final on the final day of the 46th annual event that took place for the first time at the Sunrise Country Club.

Adams called Brymer the “Marathon Man”, who later added in his post-match media interviews: “I wish I could get it done it two sets every match. It’s been quite a week, quite a grind.”

For the third straight year the boys’ 18s ITF singles was won by a UCLA Bruin recruit as Marcos Giron (2011), Mackenzie McDonald (2012) and now Brymer have captured the coveted title. It’s a junior title their coach Billy Martin, who many regard as one of the best junior players of all-time, never won.



“I don’t think it’s that I’m getting warmed up because I feel good when I go on the court and I’m hitting good,” Brymer said. “I think the other guy just really comes out pumped up and it takes a little bit of time to get into the match. It’s funny because this is the first tournament where it’s been the case. It’s not that I’m known for losing the first set. It’s just been this week. It’s not too disheartening now when I lose the first set because I know I can come back.

“I can’t put my finger on it. I guess it’s a good thing because I’ll never count myself out in the second set.”

Corinteli, the No. 3 seeded player from Alexandria, Va., who trains at the Junior Tennis Champions Center in College Park, Md., played a solid first set and used his big serve to take the early lead. “Maybe I thought in my head I really wouldn’t face any adversity and that it’s kind of going to go as smooth as it has the first set and a half,” he said. “But tennis is never like that and this has happened to me before. A couple of times you pass by it and think you’ve overcome it and then it happens again. You never really know what to expect in this sport because I was in cruise control and then a couple different points go his way and it’s a different match.”

Brymer also won the ASICS Easter Bowl in 2011 in the boys’ 16s. “I don’t like getting second place,” he said. “I feel like once I get to the final I’m there to win it. A couple of weeks ago at the Claremont ITF I got second and that was my first second in a while. I really can’t remember the last time I got second place. I just hate it. I can’t stand going all that way and losing.”

Brymer said he got a little nervous up 5-0 and then 5-1 in the final set. “It’s definitely an incredibly tough place to be up 5-0, 5-1, 5-2. Some people say, you’re up by so much and you’ve got nothing to lose and you’ve got nothing to be worried about, but I don’t think that’s the case at all. It’s much harder to get up 5-0 and close it out then to get up 5-0.

Brymer doesn’t have much time to rest before he returns to play for his high school team, University High in Irvine, on Tuesday. Then it’s off to play the 113th Ojai Valley Championships Boys’ CIF Interscholastic division April 25-28. This year, Brymer is trying to be the first player since Bobby Riggs to win three straight high school titles at The Ojai since Bobby Riggs did it from 1934-36 playing for Franklin High School in Los Angeles.

I wonder if that means they will show it on the tennis channel later on. That would be cool.

Good grief will UCLA be loaded next year. They already are a top 4 team and next year lose none of their top 6 and add Brymer and McDonald.

Yeah, I can see some similarities. He is a good looking kid all right. Big, tall, strong, and will probably be a hit with the college girls. Unfortunately, he already picked up some bad habits from Williams A lot of the Boca kids follow Rhyne on twitter.

Here is a picture of him with Kudla from early this year. Last year, he was said to be 6'-3" (probably taller now).

What do you mean by bad habits and do you mean Rhyne Williams?

Such as booze. Maybe I'm reading too much into it and I'm hoping that Luca was joking when he made that tweet. And yes, Rhyne Williams is whom I was referring to (though his best amigo, Sandgren, is just as much to blame). He trains at the same place as the USTA kids. Rhyne has a fun and sociable personality so it is not surprising to see them take a liking to him. He is not a bad person by any means (I think he is very sweet and down to earth), but he carries some unhealthy habits from his college days such as drinking, partying, junk food, video gaming etc. and has no problems expressing his likes/dislikes (sometimes I think he is too honest for his own good). The juniors liked to favorite his tweets, especially Thai, and have picked up some of his slang. For all the bad stuff, he does have a good side to him. I liked that he took them fishing and occasionally gave them good advice such as "it is okay to go to college".

Luca is closer to Kudla than Williams though (grew up in the same academy, JTCC) and hopefully, Denis' influence will offset some of Rhyne's not so good influence
