In January, the United States Tennis Association opened a new national campus in Lake Nona, Florida. This state-of-the-art complex is the new center of U.S. tennis, helping to create the next generation of tennis athletes, and the new home for UCF Tennis. Under the leadership of Director of Tennis John Roddick, the Knights will practice and compete on the facility’s clay and acrylic courts, as well as use the strength and conditioning areas, to gain a competitive advantage against their opponents.
