The Junior Tennis Champions Center at College Park aims to offer the young athletes it trains a chance to become just that - champions. While by definition it's a regional training center, Patrick McEnroe, general manager of player development for the United States Tennis Association, calls it "national in its own scope" and says it's "one of the biggest and one of the best. " The Tennis Center at College Park is the site of the Citi Open, a WTA international women's professional tennis tournament that begins Saturday and runs through July 31.

NEW YORK -- When she reached the fourth round and nearly beat Jennifer Capriati at Wimbledon earlier this year, Lisa Raymond became the latest hope in the revival of American women's tennis. But for the time being, at least, Raymond is more hype than hope.Raymond's post-Wimbledon malaise continued yesterday at the U.S. Open, when she barely put up a fight in a 6-4, 6-1, second-round loss to Natalia Zvereva of Belarus at the National Tennis Center.It was the fifth straight tournament in which Raymond has been eliminated in either the first or second rounds, and has made some wonder whether her decision to turn pro after winning two straight NCAA championships at Florida was a sound one."

WASHINGTON -- Of all the people involved in Jason Stoltenberg's athletic career, it was his mother who may have had the most impact on his future.For example, his mother told Stoltenberg -- a rugby fan -- that he couldn't play rugby because he'd get his teeth knocked out. And it was his mother, when he was 10, who introduced him to the game he would make a career of."It was purely a mistake," Stoltenberg said. "[My parents] played tennis socially, and I wanted to try it out. My mom had to show me where to stand and everything.
