About Giavara Tennis

The Giavara Tennis Academy is dedicated to the development of high level junior players whose goals are to compete at the college level and beyond. Our philosophy is grounded in optimum technique. Everything must be in place for when the student is in the higher age groups. We pay no attention to rankings in the 12’s and 14’s age groups. It is all about hitting a big ball and developing the right way. We have found an inverse relationship between the rankings in the lower age groups and the rankings in the 18’s when this all matters. This philosophy is why our students dominate the later age group. 

Haley Giavara’s Incredible Year

Haley Giavara

It’s been an amazing year and half for Haley. She jumped to a career high #650 on the WTA singles rankings.  She had 5 wins over top 200 WTA ranked singles players.  She was the 10th highest ranked American junior on the WTA singles rankings.  As a freshman at Cal Berkeley she was the #1 singles and #1 doubles player and was named NCAA All-American for singles.  Only 20 Division One players received All-American status and only 3 freshman. She was ranked #12 in the country Division One and had 4 top 10 wins.  She finished her junior career as a Blue Chip recruit and was as high as #9 in the nation in her class.  She won the bronze ball at the prestigious L1 Girls National Hardcourt Championships and also the Sportsmanship Award.
