A group of young tennis players from disadvantaged areas had the opportunity to meet some of the stars of the SA Tennis Open on Monday when No. 7 seed Rainer Schuettler of Germany and South African wildcard Izak van der Merwe joined Jeff Coetzee for a coaching clinic at the Arthur Ashe Tennis Centre in Jabavu, Soweto.

“Development is the foundation stone on which we need to build the game of tennis in South Africa,” SA Tennis Association CEO and SA Tennis Open Tournament Director Ian Smith. “We are committed to development and firmly believe that out there somewhere is a breathtaking talent just waiting to be unearthed. These clinics not only promote tennis but create a level of enjoyment that hopefully will motivate these youngsters to continue playing the game.”
