Maria Tritou builds on foreign experience to improve as singles player

first_imgZach Barlow | Asst. Photo Editor Tritou left everything behind when moving to Holland. Because of her decision to move, she went to all her matches alone. No coach. No family on the sideline rooting her on. Just her, her tennis bag and her racket.“The only thing I was doing was practice,” she said. “I’m really glad my parents actually let me to do that.”Tritou now dons an orange and white outfit on a college team. During her games, there are seven teammates, three coaches and fans on the sidelines rooting her on. She does not have to face each match alone like she used to. She finally has a team to rely on, rather than being independent.“Living by yourself at 15 years old isn’t easy,” Tritou said. “(Living away from family) had some ups and downs, but at the end, it’s all worth it.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Related Stories How Maria Tritou’s height helps freshman to 6-2 singles recordMaria Tritou wins singles and doubles match to lead Syracuse to 4-3 victory over Notre Damecenter_img Published on April 10, 2016 at 10:36 pm Contact Charlie: [email protected] | @charliedisturco Maria Tritou ran to the right corner of the court and set her feet. Her right hand gripped the racket ever so tightly. Her left hand was held out as if she was ready to strike a Heisman pose. She reached back and swung with force, hitting the ball past her opponent.A few plays later, a long rally ensued in which Tritou added a mixture of forehands and backhands before her opponent hit the ball out of bounds.“Point!” Tritou yelled out, as she began to walk to the center of the court to shake hands with her opponent. Another point. Another game. Another win in singles.Tritou’s game has strengthened over the past few years, and it’s culminated in a 9-8 singles record as a freshman at Syracuse this season. When she was 15, Tritou moved from Greece to Holland. She was alone, leaving her family back home with one goal: to improve her tennis game and compete at a top level.“On my island, Rhodes, nobody else plays tennis,” Tritou said. “So if I wanted to play at a high level, I had to go away and play tennis or stay home, study and just try to get into a university.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe 6-foot freshman has seen improvements in her game with her ground strokes. Her backhand has become more of a power move, which she attributed to her strength from practicing often and hard.That, mixed with her height, has made her tough competition for opponents. Tritou is often slated at No. 4 singles. Though she is 8-8 there (and 1-0 in No. 3 singles), she has rarely been easily defeated. Most sets are dragged out and long.“I am playing stronger,” Tritou said. “I feel much better in my physical condition.”The one thing that Tritou cites as a piece of her game that remains unchanged is her style, saying, “In tennis, you learn how to play and then practice other things.”last_img read more


first_imgDONEGAL manager Jim McGuinness is being backed today in his row with colleges – from one of the country’s leading sports writers.Jim hit back at the DCU manager in a row over player eligibility. See: (https://www.donegaldaily.com/2012/01/22/mcguinness-furious-over-claims-that-he-abused-players/)“The tail is wagging the dog in relation to the college-county scene at present, with the imbalance very much in favour of the colleges,” said Jim McGuinness. Writing in the Irish Independent today Martin Brehenny agrees, saying: “He is 100pc correct. Quite why counties agreed to allow third-level colleges into their pre-season competitions remains a mystery.“Here’s the daft scenario facing county managers: officially, they are not allowed to organise collective training until January 1 for a league that starts five weeks later.“Colleges generally have first call on inter-county players in January, so how is a county manager supposed to get his team ready for the league? Third-level colleges play an important role in GAA life, but they can do that without featuring in inter-county competitions as warm-ups for Sigerson and Fitzgibbon.”  McGUINNESS GETS BACKING IN ROW WITH COLLEGES. was last modified: January 25th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Donegal GAAGAAjim mcguinnnesslast_img read more
