High Temperatures are nothing new to USTA Tennis Tournaments

El Paso is expected to be around 100 degrees every day this week, which is nothing new to USTA tennis tournaments, like the one at Tennis West.  The 2011 $25,000 Hunt Communities Pro Tennis Classic is taking place this week, and with tennis players who are ranked anywhere from 249 to 700, this is a big tournament, and the heat won't stop them.

Mashona Washington won her first round singles match, and said of the heat "It's extremely hot, and very dry, but I am from Houston, so I feel fine.  I function better in the heat than in the cold.  You just have to stay hydrated and stay in the shade, because the sun can really take a lot out of you."  Aloyna Sotnikova upset #1 seed Beatrice Capra, and said of the heat "I have never been in anything like this in the altitude like this.  I train in San Antonio and the weather is similar, but the heat combined with the altitude is tough.  But you have to deal with it." 

USTA certified athletic trainer Jill Manners said staying hydrated is a must, and routinely tells players not to overdue it.  "Sometimes it's 80-90 heat index, or sometimes it 130-140, so players have to understand they must hydrate, drink lots of liquids, and stay out of the heat as much as they can to let their body rest."

The tournament continues throughout the week, with the championship matches slated for 10:00am Sunday at Tennis West.
