Daniela Hantuchova Back at IMG Academies

As mid-July brings the grueling summer heat, it also brings the American hard court season.  From professional players to club players, everyone is ready for the fast-paced action that culminates at the U.S. Open in late August.  And judging from yesterday’s practice, nobody is more prepared than Daniela Hantuchova. The 5″11 Slovakian was crushing balls of both wings and is poised for a breakout summer.  She goes into the summer schedule ranked #25 in the WTA Rankings and did well at the French Open in May reaching the round of 16.  Hopefully, she can use IMG Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy as a tool to skyrocket up the rankings.

Hanutchova trained at the IMG Academies as a student years ago.  Training directly under the supervision of Nick Bollettieri, she has remained close to the academy and loves coming back periodically to work on her game. The 27- year old looked comfortable on court yesterday as Nick would share his knowledge throughout the practice session.  If her unbelievable ball striking continues, I predict some greats results for her this summer.

Up next for Hantuchova is the Bank of the West Classic held at Stanford University in California.  She is the 10th highest ranked player in the draw and should make a deep run as the courts will help the big hitters.  She is also scheduled to play tournaments in Cincinatti and Montreal before the U.S. Open begins August 30th in New York.  We wish the best of luck to Daniela!
