MARCH 2016
CAPTAIN OF THE MONTH
JANINE COY-GEESLIN
LEXINGTON, KY

 

How did you become a captain?  My husband and his friend wanted to play USTA. They asked me to captain because I played in high school and was constantly trying to coach them.

How long have you been a captain?  I think this is my 2nd year.

Do you have a co-captain? I make my husband co-captain when I need to.
  

Have your teams won Local Championships?  Not yet, but we have some good players this year.

Any family members participate in league or play tennis?  My husband is part of my Men's 2.5 team.

How long have you been playing tennis?  I started playing with my mom recreationally when I was 12, and I played in high school. Then I quit when I was 19. I picked it back up about 5 years ago.  

How did you start playing tennis?   My mom got us racquets in a yard sale, and she and I would go play in the evenings. In Texas, you could play year round outside.

How did you feel when you learned you were nominated?   I thought that was very sweet and very much appreciate the thought. I wondered if my husband did it? :)

Who is your favorite tennis player?  Of all time, Stefi Graf, but currently still playing Venus Williams. I tried to pattern my game after Stefi...big serve big forehand.

What kind of racquet do you use?  Prince...that was what I started with.

How many racquets do you carry to a match?   2

What is your favorite tournament to watch?   On TV, Wimbledon. I hope to go sometime. In person, Western Southern in Mason, OH. 

What is your best shot?   Toss up between the outwide serve and my cross-court forehand.

Do you prefer backhand or forehand?  Forehand

Do you like to play singles or doubles?  Doubles...so many angles.

Why do you enjoy being a captain?  When I see improvement in my guys, it makes it all worthwhile.

What do you like most  about playing league tennis? All the friends I have make tennis so much fun!

If you could attend one Grand Slam, which one would it be? Easy...Wimbledon!
