Tennis Tip: Using The Converging Drill to Warm Up Before Your Doubles Match
How do YOU warm up for a doubles match? In this tennis video tip, Seminole High Performance Nike Tennis Camp director, Dwayne Hultquist, demonstrates "The Converging Drill." This tennis drill is a great way to warm up your hands and get moving before a match.
Entering his 20th season at the helm of the Florida State men’s tennis program, Hultquist has put himself atop the Florida State record books and the Seminoles consistently in the national spotlight.
The 2018 season was the best one yet under Hultquist. The Seminoles earned 28 wins on their way to hosting the NCAA first and second rounds. It marked the 16th straight season under Hultquist that the Seminoles had made an NCAA Tournament appearance and the fourth time that FSU had hosted a regional. Hultquist was named Southeast Region Coach of the Year and was also named ACC Coach of the Year, becoming the first Seminole head coach to earn such honors.
Also in 2018, Hultquist earned his 300th career win when FSU defeated Furman in the finals of the FSU Spring Invitational. The Seminoles were also a part of the first ever college tennis match that was broadcasted on the Tennis channel when the Seminoles defeated the Gators as a part of the USTA’s College MatchDay. Hultquist also garnered his second win over a No. 1 ranked team in 2018 when he led the Garnet and Gold past No. 1 Wake Forest at home, 4-3.
