Daniel Sharygin Looks to Repeat
Daniel Sharygin (Newburgh, IN) returns to ETC to defend his 2017 USTA National Level 3 Championship next weekend. This marks the second year the Evansville Tennis Center has hosted the Boys 16s National Tournament. In 2017, Sharygin entered the tournament as the third highest ranked player. After beating his doubles partner and fellow area tennis player, Aaron Thompson, Sharygin beat the top seeded Matthew Halpin 7-6(2) ; 6-2. He would then beat Graydon Lair in the finals 7-6(2) ; 7-5.
This year, Sharygin enters the tournament as the top seeded and top ranked player with a national ranking of 49. He will be teaming up with Xavier Ecarma. Ecarma is the son of the University of Louisville Men’s Tennis Coach Rex Ecarma.
Sharygin may be the only local player to participate in this years’ event but he will be joined by several Central Indiana players: Ian Brady, Presley Thieneman, Nishanth Basavareddy and Nishesh Basavareddy. All of these players rank high in the most current USTA Midwest rankings.
ETC is proud to welcome these players to the city of Evansville, and we encourage all of our members and anyone else within the community to come watch some of the best players in the region and the country. Play will begin Saturday January 20th at 8:00am. The day will begin with two rounds of doubles followed by two rounds of singles play. The event will run through Monday, January 22nd.
