A MUST READ FROM JOHAN KRIEK

Johan Kriek on the concept of bring "process driven" vs "result driven": "Ok, here is the piece I promised on the terms I used in another post..."process driven" vs "result driven". This is a philosophy similar to the tortoise and the hare story...

I was in SA [South Africa] playing most of the top junior tournaments back in the early 70's while being in a boarding school at a very prestigious high school in Pretoria. I left in my final year before graduating to go live in Austria with my coach Ian Cunningham who had immigrated to Austria two years prior to my arrival. I completely disappeared from SA and International tennis. I heard rumors that I had quit tennis, was burnt out and was going to farm with my dad....blahblahbah, etc. etc. The real truth was that (at the time unbeknownst to others) i was in the "process driven mode" of my tennis development. I did not compete in the Orange bowl, junior Wimbledon, US Open juniors or any major junior event from age 17 to 19. I honed my sliding skills and all that was necessary to become a more sound ball striker on red clay and became a great competitor because if clay and took the train to Switzerland, Vienna, Germany and England to play in smaller "open" events. I cannot tell you how many Swiss Army knives I collected in those two years.... In 1978 I together with my coach decided it was time to go to America and play for two months in Florida and tackle the then WATCH circuit. The first two weeks I did not even qualify! I finally qualified in Bonita Springs, then won Hialeah ($1500!!!!) and decided to continue playing another circuit for 5 weeks in North and South Carolina. I came in second in points and my ATP ranking was dropping very quickly into the low 200's after being ranked like 689 or so arriving in the US. I then qualified in North Conway and in Stowe Vermont before heading off to the US Open qualies, won 4 rounds, and went all the way to the quarters beating Brian Teacher, Yannick Noah in 5 sets only to get spanked by Vitas Gerulaitis in the quarters. I have ARRIVED! Suddenly agents are talking and my life changed almost overnight....

Herein lays the truth. If I had chased points before I had really worked on my basics, my confidence, my everything, I don't think i would have made it! The system for juniors in many parts of the world is FLAWED and that is why so many top juniors don't seem to make it in the pros. They just lose heart! They were so "result driven" to be "seen" for sponsors, mom and dad, peers, etc etc. That is IMHO a very narrow and shortsighted approach. People fly around the US and South-America to the weakest ITF events just to get points and kids with way more talent, maybe less money to travel end up with worse rankings and the whole system becomes skewed. I don't pretend to have the answers to all the ills in the USTA Player Development sector, but this problem is NOT unique to the US either! Talk to any pros that "know" their countries like England, Australia, South Africa.....they all suffer from the same political bs and the kids suffer because of it! The enormous monies plowed into "finding the next great one" very very rarely does!!! Most are from the strangest places! Look at Serbia, Sweden, Spain, Argentina and so many others. For parents to drive all over to have an under ten ranking and burn their kids out LONG before the real test has to take place around 14-16 needs to have their heads examined. Work on technique, point construction, tactics. I see "mental midgets" all over the pace! They all can strike the ball, bang bang from the back but a very small percentage of them are taught how to think, how to behave, how to be humble, how to play fair! It is all about winning, winning, winning aka " result driven". And you wonder why the US has so few top prospects and have spent so much money...

I was ranked 689 when i arrived in the US in 1978. In less than two years (never a wildcard) I was top ten in the world. So what i didn't have a junior top ranking. I quietly for nearly three years worked on my "total game" and believed that that was what was going to work best for me, and it did. The cream will rise to the top eventually...."


CRITERIA FOR THE SELECTION OF MPUMALANGA JUNIOR TENNIS TEAMS FOR PARTICIPATION IN ANY T.S.A. PROVINCIAL TOURNAMENT


CRITERIA

  1. A player must be a registered Mpumalanga player, i.e. his/her registration / affiliation fees must be paid via his/her district committee or club.

  2. Players must be available for the full duration of any tournament they have entered for to qualify for points or position in a team.

  3. A medical certificate must be submitted in case of withdrawal due to injury or illness during the trials.

  4. Six tournaments are presented per year plus a mini-masters tournament on invitation.

  5. During the year a ranking list will be drawn up from which the points of the best two tournaments will be taken into account for invitation to the final trials.

  6. In order for a guaranteed spot to the Final Trials a player should end up in the top four places on the ranking list, calculated on the best 2 tournaments played.

  7. A total of 13 players will be invited on merit and 3 PDI players to make up a possible 16 spots.

  8. The remaining 9 spots on merit will be nominated by the 3 districts (Junior and Schools Committees)   A new player in the province that did not have time to prove him-/herself to be considered for the regional team, can be invited to the final trials if there is still a spot available, due to cancellation. The final decision will be taken by the provincial junior committee.

  9. The final trials are the prestige event for Mpumalanga players and will therefore be a compulsory tournament. No excuses will be accepted.

  10. The format of the final trials will be played with a main draw and the feed-in system.

10.1 All matches will be played best out of 2 tie-breaker sets and a 10-point tie-breaker for the 3rd set.  

                 

10.2 A maximum of 3 matches will be played on any day during the trials. Unless weather interfered or a player has a bye, two

        opponents should be scheduled in such a way that  both play the same number of matches during the day.

        

10.3 Although two players might have played each other in the main draw, they will compete  a second time in the feed-in play

        off if necessary.The final result in the feed - in will stand.

        

      10.4 If the lowest positioned merit player (included in the team) and the first reserve merit  player did not meet somewhere in   

              the draw, a final play-off will be called between these   players on the last day of the trials                 

                 .

10.5 No challenges will be allowed after the trials have been completed. In the event of injury before or during the

         trials the player will forfeit their right for a place in the team.

 

   11. After the final trials the team will be selected.

 

   12. Selected players must play a minimum of three representative provincial matches to qualify for Mpumalanga colours. 

         The final  decision regarding awarding of colours rest on the Mpumalanga Executive committee. Player’s behaviour and  

         commitment will also be taken into consideration.

 

   13. If a player moves to a higher age group for the following year, 80% of his/her ranking points will be carried over to the    

         following age group.

 

   14.  Management reserves the right to select a player for any age group concerned. The final team selection rests with the  

       selection  committee.

 

   15.  If two age groups are combined during a TSA ranking tournament, points will, for ranking purposes, be awarded in the age

       group in which he/she entered. The points will be decided according to the final position of all players of the specific age group.

 

THESE CRITERIA WILL BE STRICTLY ADHERED TO AND NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE IN THE SELECTION OF THE FINAL TEAMS.
