TOP Time for the Shine SPIN

Ah, spring. The warmth of new beginnings, expanded play hours and, most exciting of all, plenty of time on the countless outdoor courts available across BC. It is always inspiring when April comes and the public courts fill up with friends meeting for a quick game before dinner, families engaged in social play, and back-yard rivalries fiercely renewed. Players of all ages re-calibrate their strings for the warm conditions, and many debut new apparel to one-up their playing buddies, intimidate an opponent – or maybe catch the attention of a potential mixed-doubles partner. Yes, as British Columbians, we have a natural fear of rainouts. But our anxieties are lifting even as I pen this note. New indoor facilities are slated to open this spring in Langley (4 courts) and UBC (12 courts), with expansion of North Vancouver’s Grant Connell Centre to 12 courts slated for late 2011/early 2012. Additional indoor projects in the Okanagan and the Interior are currently being spec’d out. Meanwhile, this outdoor season we are introducing inspiring new programs into the BC community. It starts with the first BC Provincial Team Tennis Championships, to be held August 5th-7th in coordination with the $175,000 Odlum Brown VanOpen presented by Invesco Trimark. (For info on playoffs, entry, and more, visit tennisbc.org.) In close partnership with Tennis Canada we have developed multiple grass-roots and high-performance initiatives that will benefit thousands of players. The new Little Aces program, will see a large and sustained financial investment into selected municipalities’ Parks and Recreation and schools programming. For 2011, we will kick the program off at one of Canada’s fastest growing municipalities, Surrey. Our Community Development team is diligently examining new locations for 2012 and beyond. Last season, progressive tennis equipment kits were provided to numerous seasonal clubs throughout the Okanagan, Interior, North Island, and Lower Mainland. New facilities will be accepted for spring 2011. With the ascents of Canadians Marino and Raonic into the main draw of the Grand Slams, BC is on the tennis map as never before. A full-time National Performance Coach will be hired to work in BC with the clubs and academies province-wide, focusing on ages 8 to 14. Growth in age brackets will follow in the future, all with the core principal of creating home-grown, international calibre competitors. So re-grip your favourite frame, lace up your best sneakers, and start cleaning the post-match BBQ. Springtime is upon us. Prepare for the annual migration back to our great outdoor courts!

THE ROAD TO TENNIS STARDOM CAN BE A ROCKY ONE. And in the case of Burnaby’s Kamil Pajkowski it’s also a “Rocky” one – Kamil displays striking similarities to the legendary underdog pugilist who rose from a working class background, trained feverishly, and eventually became a champion. Pajkowski has paid his dues – and continues to do so – as an aspiring touring professional. And all his years of hard work are paying off: he recently cracked the ATP top-500 doubles rankings. Partnering for victories in Spain, the United States and Cuba since September, the 25-year-old who was born in Warsaw, Poland (he moved to Canada when his parents immigrated in 1988) is starting to gain traction on tour and make a name for himself in professional tennis circles. And this year, he has reason to believe that he’s got what it takes to become one of the top doubles players in the world. “I was told by a coach once that there are a couple of ways to get where you want to be,” Pajkowski says.

This much is evident by the lengths Pajkowski is willing to go to make it as a touring pro. To finance his aspirations, the former University of New Mexico team member has a part-time job teaching highperformance juniors at the West Vancouver Tennis Club whenever his schedule permits. He has equipment deals with K-Swiss and Babolat, and does receive some funding from Tennis Canada to help offset his travel costs. Otherwise, Pajkowski is living the dream on a shoestring budget. He’s proving to be as sharp with his cost- cutting as he is at hitting cross-court winners. “It takes some money to get out there for about 30 weeks a year. I’ve had to go out and sell myself. It’s almost like starting a business with having to budget everything and figure out where you’re going to go to and what makes the most sense,” he says of trying to map out his schedule in three-month chunks.

“Some players take the Interstate: it’s a nice big wide road, you go pretty fast and there aren’t many problems. Other players take that nice coastal highway – a great scenic route. I took the back roads. You have to drive a little slower, the route is a little bumpier, but in the end if I get to the same place as the others, it really doesn’t matter. And I don’t mind it because I love tennis.” 18

| AXIS BC’S WORLD OF TENNIS | SPRING 2011

“On the Futures circuit, when you’re starting out, it’s not very glamourous. It’s kind of the opposite of everything you see on TV. You’re travelling to places where you don’t speak the language, the clubs aren’t the best – or sometimes you’re just playing in parks. So that’s tough. And financially, it’s not easy starting out. Especially in doubles; you’re not playing for very much prize money so you’re always looking to cut corners and save here and there. But now that we’re out of that and into Challengers, it gets better and a little easier.” Pajkowski’s climb up the pro tennis ladder began a month after last summer’s Odlum Brown VanOpen at Hollyburn Country Club. In two consecutive weeks, he and longtime friend (and fellow British Columbian) Philip Bester reached the final, and then won the ITF Futures event in Spain. A month later, he and Bester took the title at Futures tournament in Birmingham, Alabama. And Pajkowski capped off his 2010 season by teaming up with Britain’s Miles Bugby to capture the doubles crown at a Futures event in Cuba. Pajkowski has picked up in 2011 where he left off late last year. He and Bester reunited in January to reach the semi-finals at a Challenger tournament in Honolulu. This run of recent success has pushed

Pajkowski’s ATP doubles ranking to 442nd in the world (approximately 2000 world-ranked in doubles) – not bad for a guy who didn’t have any ranking points six months ago. “I’ve started seeing myself more as a pro tennis player lately because I’ve gotten out of the lower level pro tournaments – the $10,000 or $15,000 Futures events – and now I’m playing with a lot of guys who are making a living out on the tour,” Pajkowski says of the attitude adjustment he’s undergone in recent months. “I’m not making a living off the tour just yet, but that’s where I hope to be. So yeah, I consider myself a pro. I think my ranking is at that point now where that’s what I would tell people I do.” As for any plans to form a permanent partnership with Bester to see just how far the two can ride their wave of success, Pajkowski thinks that’s premature. He knows Bester wants to continue to focus on his singles career. But Pajkowski says the two will team up throughout 2011, including upcoming trips to Asia and Europe. “I’ve played about eighty percent of my tournaments at the pro level with Philip, but it’s not an exclusive partnership. We end up traveling together; it makes it easier for us and we enjoy each other’s company and we grew up together so we know each other’s games well. So whenever our schedules line up, we definitely look to play with each other,” says Pajkowski. “Someone like Philip, who has been playing professionally from such a young age, he’s really helped me deal with some of those moments that I’m not familiar with. And getting that monkey off my back where I’ve won my first tournament, so mentally I now believe I belong out there.” With that new-found belief tucked

firmly in his back pocket, Pajkowski is steadfast in his determination to improve all aspects of his game. When not on the road, he keeps a gruelling schedule, putting in hours with his fi tness trainer at the Richmond Oval before heading to the West Van Tennis Centre to hit for a while. Then it’s time to go to work imparting all that he’s learning about pro tennis with the next generation of top talent in this province. And when it comes to teaching, Pajkowski wants his students to realize it wasn’t that long ago that he was one of them – a youngster with plenty of talent, but even more desire to play tennis at the highest level. “My strength is my serve. I’m a lefty. I’ve got a lot of kick on my serve, a lot of junk. And I’ve got pretty good hands. I don’t mind standing at the net and having people rocket balls at me. I’m a scrapper and I’m kind of the garbage guy who is able to get to a lot of the loose balls,” he says describing his style and his work ethic. “There is no guarantee that I can make a living out of this, but right now I’m getting an opportunity to do something that not a lot of people can do. For me, it’s kind of an adventure and wherever it’ll take me, it’ll take me. My goal right now is to get inside 250 by the end of the year. I don’t like to set a number because then all you do is look at that number and put too much pressure on yourself. I’d be very satisfi ed if I could get to the level where I could get into Grand Slams. To me that would be a real big step.” One of the keys for Pajkowski to make that goal a reality is simply to continue to get as many quality matches as possible under his belt while he’s playing well. And so he’ll head to Asia and Europe with

confidence hoping to boost his world ranking. And because he’s arrived on the scene in a relatively short period of time, Pajkowski doesn’t have to worry about defending any world ranking points until much later this year. So any success he has will keep him moving in the right direction. “Everything right now is gravy. The tournament in Honolulu was kind of the transition where I’m not playing Futures anymore and now I’m playing Challengers. We got to the semis of that tournament and getting to the semis of a Challenger gives me the same amount of (ranking) points as winning two and a half Futures tournaments. So you start jumping up in the rankings a lot faster,” he explains. Like the famous scene in the movie, where a determined Rocky races up the stairs in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Kamil Pajkowski has begun his climb, in his chosen sport. Sylvester Stalone’s workout is set to the inspirational song ‘Gonna Fly Now.’ And with his run of recent success on the tennis court, it seems Kamil Pajkowski has already taken flight.

MD: I look to the similarities, not the differences, because the only diff erence is the product. When I joined the Toronto Raptors as Chief Marketing Officer, I had never sold a ticket, sponsorship, or negotiated a TV deal. But at the end of the day it was about setting up the strategy, setting up objectives, setting up tactics, and then driving the business through that discipline. The product is really secondary. To be a good leader, you work both with and through your people, especially when you are new to the category such as I was with Tennis Canada.

Since arriving at Tennis Canada, Micheal has aggressively invested in high performance tennis, community development, and the Rogers Cup tournaments, with great success. in his former life as President of Molson Breweries’ Ontario-Western Canada region, he led the company to record levels of profit, and helmed awardwinning marketing campaigns, like the “I Am Canadian” TV ad. Michael has also held senior executive positions with Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment. 5 0

MD: I really had a passion to see young athletes exceed their own expectations. Especially young kids who take on the challenge of this great sport called tennis. A second factor was that the board of directors that hired me in 2004 wanted change, and I love to orchestrate change. Q: Why do you think there is such a strong connection with people in the business world and tennis?

MD: It also comes back to demographics. A big one is that we have is an equal balance of male and female audience, that is very hard to find in sport. Most others are 80/20 balanced. The higher educated and higher income brackets are attractive and something we can deliver on as well. Products that are looking for that target market can get in through our major events such as the Rogers Cup. | AXIS BC’S WORLD OF TENNIS | SPRING 2011

PRACTICAL APPLICATION To put it simply, SEED ensures that every kid has more fun playing tennis. The program fosters a positive and flexible learning experience that matches the technical, physical, mental and emotional level of every child. Progressive tennis – with scaled court size, softer balls, and smaller racquets – is a good example of how it starts. And when competition is introduced, SEED sets up tournaments and leagues at an appropriate level of intensity for every player. Both The Rogers Rix Rookie Tour and Community Team Tennis have adjusted playing and scoring

formats to allow children to have a positive, enjoyable first experience. This builds confidence early, and keeps kids motivated longer. SEED also includes wheelchair tennis, and caters to an entry experience for wheelchair tennis that is positive, welcoming, and satisfying.

SD: Preparation is essential for negotiations – in preparing documents, and when going to court. I enjoy the parallel in tennis as you need to be prepared to adapt to your opponent, respond to the person you are playing, and understand their strengths and weaknesses.

ACTIVE START

FUNDAMENTALS

Start off right! Learn fundamental movements, link them together in play, and fall in love with the game.

DEVELOPING

Build the foundation Develop fundamental motor skills (physical literacy), and build confidence through progressive tennis.

Q: What did playing the sport teach you growing up?

Develop your game Begin to hone the full-court skills that every player needs, and become a well-rounded athlete.

SD: It is really unique. I believe, especially for youth, it is a great experience. You are on the court and on your own competing against someone else where you are keeping score. There is going to be a winner and a loser and there is no coach to assist you. That develops very special characteristics that are useful in the business world. Q: What skills did you learn?

WHAT DOES SEED PROVIDE?

PHYSICAL LITERACY

SEED is a framework for training, competition, and recovery that helps individuals at every age and skill level reach their peak performance.

SEED establishes a general framework for athlete development, with special attention paid to growth, maturation, and development.

SEED identifies equal opportunities for participation and recreation.

LTAD (Long Term Athletic Development, of which SEED is a part) is a framework for full sport system alignment in Canada, integrating health and education with sport and physical activity.

Before we delve into read War and Peace, we have to learn our ABCs. Similarly, if we are ever going to have a forehand like Djokovic, we must learn our sport movement fundamentals. This is physical literacy, and it’s best if we begin early. The development of physical literacy is critical to children’s confidence in sport for fun, health, competition and, eventually, the pursuit of excellence. Physical literacy is a key component of Tennis BC’s SEED program.

SEED is athlete centred, coach driven, and supported by offi cials, administrators, parents, sport medicine/sport science professionals, communities and sponsors.

26

| AXIS BC’S WORLD OF TENNIS | SPRING 2011

Tennis is particularly well suited to develop physical literacy skills like running, catching, throwing, balance, coordination, and agility. The first 3 stages of the Tennis BC’s SEED program (Active Start, FUNdamentals, and Developing) zero in on the key physical literacy components of development.

SD: You have to be very adaptable. You take your circumstances and work with them in the best way you can. It involves both mental and physical issues which you have to come to grips with. Tennis is such a great sport 21 16+ for learning14 about yourself and how you adapt and make things work for you. 15

Technifibre Black Code Using Thermocore technology adds plenty of spin to your forehand rips. Soft and decently durable. String color is black… obviously.

Many assume it’s all about the racket, but unless you’re a chronic shanker, the strings hit the ball. Getting the right rope can make all the difference, whether you’re getting ready for league play or for tournament time. Start the season off right>>>

Wilson NXT Tour If you’re looking for top-tier synthetic, this will do the trick. This stuff will help add some pop to the serve, too.

Babolat RPM Blast The current string of world #1 Nadal & women’s top 5, Samantha Stosur. With the cross-linked silicone, you can maximize spin and be confident in your short angle roles. Works for Rafa…

PRO STRING BRANDS The breakdown of strings brands of the 156 main draw singles players at the 2010 US Open:

Babolat VS Team The ultimate in gut. When you’re ready to step up your game (but also your costs) then look to their VS line. But be careful: once you go gut, you don’t go back.

Babolat Tonic If you are ready for gut, but worried about price & durability, then Tonic might be your best choice. Great feel with plenty of power. The ‘training wheels’ of gut string...

Wilson Natural Gut Many don’t know, but Wilson does gut too. Serena and Venus have used it to put a few trophies on their mantles. One great feature is the price point (less than most other competitors’ gut products).

5 1 SERVE

After receiving the signal to advance straight in or diagonally to the net (see net player signals, above) the server serves ‘down the T’. This eliminates an easy return angle for the returner as the serving team take their net positions. 32

| AXIS BC’S WORLD OF TENNIS | SPRING 2011

6 2 CROUCH

After giving the signal to the server, Kamil assumes a crouched position in the middle of the court. The server commences the point by serving down the ‘T’ directly over his partners head.

3 ADVANCE

Luke advances to the net following the agreed upon signal given by his partner. In this example, the signal was to serve and come straight in on the deuce court.

4 INTERCEPT

Return to the split-step position and get up on your toes so you are ready to move to the next shot…..just in case your opponent is fast enough to get to the ball.

5 NET POSITION

Luke is now positioned at the net on the right and has likely ‘mystified’ opponents by moving into an unpredictable net position.

6 NET POSITION

Kamil is now also positioned at the net - an unusual configuration that keeps opponents guessing.

Meanwhile, constant starts, steps, baseline grounds, strokes and overhead serves also place stress on the player’s lower back structures. It’s no surprise that around 65% of us end up with an injury every year. Chiropractors can help with proper tennis training and stretching in order to avoid injury, and treat injured players to get them back on the court quickly. Dr. Tyler Hunsberger, a Chiropractor in Vancouver, outlines the most common back injuries amongst tennis players and recommends some of the best methods for treating them. Back pain for tennis players is usually not due to a single traumatic event. Their injuries are more often from repeated micro trauma occurring over a long period of time – defined as a repetitive strain injury. The term “repetitive strain injury” is most commonly used to refer to patients in whom there is no objective pathophysiology. Another term used for this type of injury in tennis players and the general population is “non-specific” low back pain, which encompasses soft tissue, ligament and joint dysfunctions. More severe (and less common) low back pain is caused by structural abnormalities, such as a herniated disc, fractures, and genetic arthritic changes, which are rarely seen on the court. Overall, back pain is extremely common. Approximately 80% of the general population will have a lower back issue at some point throughout their life.

AXIS FITNESS

CORE ASSET 34

TENNIS IS DEMANDING. IT INVOLVES ALMOST ALL OF THE MUSCIES OF THE HUMAN BODY. THE BACK IS A BIG FOCAL POINT: TENNIS CALLS FOR A HUGE AMOUNT OF TRUNK ROTATION, ALONG WITH LATERAL AND FORWARD MOVEMENT.

These exercises strengthen your core without bending your spine. You can progress through them when you and your health care provider feel ready. They set the base for you to progress to more functional movements like squats and/or lunges. Add them to your warm up routine or before hitting the court.

Build the Foundation

Treatment

Tennis players are often told that their “core” is too weak. Many tennis players think that in order to help their back they need to strengthen their “outer core” or rectus abdominis (what I call the “Kits Beach muscles”). This is usually accomplished by doing sit ups, leg raises and crunches. But these movements engage only the rectus muscle and put pressure on your lower back, which can actually lead to injury. What tennis players need to focus on are the deep or inner core muscles, which are located at the sides of our abdomen and along the spine.

There are a wide variety of conservative treatment options available to tennis players with lower back pain. The low back is a complex structure which is susceptible to many different types of injuries. Building a strong, stable spine can help to prevent injuries to the low back during tennis (and will increase your performance). These exercises are the foundation of a stronger spine. Keep in mind that some exercises may exacerbate an individual’s back pain but may help others. See your health care professional to have an extensive history and physical to determine your diagnoses and the best treatment option for you. Lastly, one of the best ways to eliminate back pain is to take out the aggravating factors. Make sure you consult your tennis professional who can instruct you on proper form and make suggestions on how to avoid low back injuries.

CURL UP Laying flat on the floor, place your hands under your low back to support the lumbar spine and extend one leg. Simply pick up your upper torso (thoracic spine) and hold for 1-3 seconds lowering down to the starting position. It’s important to keep your neck and low back as immobile as possible. Try doing 10-20 repetitions.

DR. TYLER HUNSBERGER is a former collegiate tennis player and co-owner of Broadway at Burrard Chiropractic, which is a multi-disciplinary clinic off ering Chiropractic care, Laser Therapy, Active Release Technique® and Custom-fi t Orthotics. To learn more go to: www.broadwayburrardchiro.com and www.kitslasertherapy.com

BIRD DOG Begin on all fours and lift the opposite arm and leg. Brace this as if someone was trying to push you over. Repeat on the other side and hold these positions for 3-5 seconds for 10 repetitions.

Dr. Stuart McGill, an engineer from the University of Waterloo and author of “Ultimate Back Fitness and Performance,” is a world leader in research and training on low back biomechanics. His studies have shown that the best way to build a healthier back is to fully engage the entire core. Doing a sit-up doesn’t train your muscles for what they were designed for, which is keeping your spine straight and secure. Dr. McGill states “the abdominals are braces,” when doing any athletic movement, the spine is in a neutral posture, not flexed, and the abdominal muscles are contracted to brace the spine. Think of the phrase you’ve heard before “bend with your legs not your back”. Bending at the waist is exactly what a sit-up is, only done in a lying position. Doing a sit-up or curl-up only brings you one repetition closer to damaging your low back. It’s actually replicating an injury mechanism!

SIDE BRIDGE This exercise is to be performed with the knees bent for the beginner and from the feet for the more advanced. Keep your spine straight as it is when you’re standing straight. Try holding for 10-20 seconds and repeat on the other side.
