Performance by District

As in previous USTA analyses, the top three Districts are typically Western Michigan, Chicago, and the Ohio Valley. The order may change from time to time, but these are the strongest Districts year-in and year-out. This year, the Districts are in the above order.

Midwest Closed Performance by District
Average Points per District - Click to enlarge

Western Michigan led the pack with 221 average points, followed by Chicago and Ohio Valley, with their 200 and 181 average points, respectively.

The average point totals per player per District are listed in the graph to the right. For example, if all of the players in a District, won their first round matches and lost the rest, that Districts' average points would be 140. The average for all players is 152 so those with more points did better than the average.

All of the graphs may be to enlarged by clicking on them. Use the browser's back button to return to the document.

Since these are averages, the question should be, "Are some Districts just better than others, or are some Districts getting too many spots for the Midwest Closed?" It is a bit of both.

The next graph shows the number of players from each District who were accepted into the Midwest Closed. While Chicago receives a large number of spots, they certainly deserved it. That might not be the case for other Districts. Chicago gets a large number of spots because it has: a huge population of members, the players are very good, and it benefits by having an ideal location. Players who are south of Chicago do not want to drive to tournaments north of Chicago and vice versa. Also recall last winter.

[Recall from previous documents that Fort Wayne, IN is the best tournament location for all Midwest players.]

Midwest Seeding

Having quality seeding is extremely important for any tournament. The gold bars in the accompanying graph show what the point totals would be for a perfectly seeded tournament. The blue values show the actual average points that each seeding position earned. For example, if all number one seeds won each of the four events (B16, B18, G16, G18) then the average points for the one seed would be 665. Of course, that was not the case. The one seeds fared the best with 494 average points, followed by the second and third seeds.

Report Options

Note that the table is long but it contains numerous ways to sort the players. This is the main value of this report. Click on Player to sort by player name (the default); State to sort by state and player name; Event to sort by event and player name; District to sort by District and player name; Points to sort by Midwest points earned from this event and player name; and OTZ Membership identify OTZ members sorted by player name.

All players who earned 200 points or more from the tournament have their points high-lighted in blue.

More about OhioTennisZone.com

Most of the emphasis of OhioTennisZone.com is on the recognition of Ohio High School Tennis players and the promotion of Ohio High School Tennis. All of the high school match results for the Columbus, Cleveland, and Cincinnati-area high school teams are included on OhioTennisZone. OhioTennisZone (OTZ) also publishes more Ohio high school tennis photos than all Ohio newspapers combined. To my knowledge, there are no other entities that provide this level of high school tennis support in any other state.

OhioTennisZone.com Members at the Midwest ClosedEspecially during the off-season, OTZ does go off into other directions. The Midwest Closed analysis is a bit of a departure from the norm, but it is worthy of coverage.

OTZ also follows the Ohio high school graduates who play in college, as well as in the pro ranks.

Allocation of Spots for the Midwest Closed

When considering the importance of this tournament, there needs to be a better way to insure that the most deserving players have an opportunity to participate.

Districts in the Midwest Section
Map Created by USTA Midwest

Districts that perform lower than the average over an extended period of time should either have their spots reduced or be combined with another District (or both). There is no question that the qualifiers for Southern Illinois and Middle Illinois should be combined -- both have been underperforming Districts for years. Northeast and Northern Michigan should also be combined. Another combination possibility is Northwestern Ohio and Northeastern Ohio. Wisconsin's number of spots should also be reduced.

The Midwest Closed is (or should be) about rewarding the efforts of the kids -- not about geographic boundaries. It should not be considerably harder for a player on one side of the street to get into the Midwest Closed versus a player on the other side of the street.

The Cincinnati-area tennis players get a double-whammy. Some of the best Cincinnati players cannot play in the Ohio High School Athletic Association State Tournament because Ohio does not seed its qualifying tournament. This means that some of Ohio's best players knock each other out of the state qualifying round. Likewise, it is very difficult for some of these players to make the biggest Midwest USTA tournament of the year because there are only a limited number of Ohio Valley spots.
