Chad Awerbuch says it would be nice to convert one of his final-four finishes at a Maccabi Tennis Tournament, but his loss in the final to Maccabi’s coach, Davor Baretic, in Sunday’s 2010 Maccabi Tennis Club Championships, sees the 23-year-old as the best performing senior tennis player in the community after he pipped head coach Steve Loeffler 6-3, 6-4 in the semi. Match report below…

Chad Awerbuch

A former Australian All Schools (under-18), New South All School, Combined Independent Schools and Green and Gold medallist (as a top-three performers) at the 2008 University Games, Awerbuch enjoyed a successful tennis career as a junior and he is not only thankful of the role Maccabi played, but wants to encourage the next generation to enjoy their tennis as much as he did.

“I always maintained playing with the club and all the club championships,” he told Maccabi News. “The community was always very supportive of me and now I don’t want Jewish tennis to go to waste. I now hit with some of the up and coming players who might make an impact in the future. I want it to keep improving.”
Awerbuch, who will represent Australia at the MAIGS, says that Maccabi is a great environment to enjoy your tennis – competitively or not.
“There’s a very good atmosphere, everyone knows each other, the club always puts on a good show, well run tournaments. And what better way to keep fit and healthy than at a Jewish club surrounded by friends and family.”
Match report:
MACCABI coach Davor Baretic has taken out the open singles 6-2 6-4 against Chad Awerbuch in the 2010 Maccabi Tennis Club Championships. Rain delayed the start of the competition, but that did not deter a healthy turn out, with a mix of surprise results and solid performances from Maccabi regulars.
The big result came in the semi-final, when 23-year-old Awerbuch pipped Maccabi’s head coach Steve Loeffler 6-3 6-4 to finish as the highest placed Jewish competitor in the event.
Loeffler rebounded alongside Jeremy Fisher to produce a solid Doubles display, taking out the Open Doubles title for the first time as a pair – although, both players have won the doubles before with other partners. They outplayed Lance Rosenberg and Davor Baretic 6-2 6-2 in a fine display packed with skills that hint they might be a team to be reckoned with in years to come.
Other notable performances came from new Maccabi member Glen Silver, who beat club president Steve Goldberg in a competitive A2 Singles final.
Josh Ehrlich produced a great run of results to take out the A3 Singles title.
Maccabi Tennis club thanks club sponsors, Audi Centre Sydney, Ray White Unlimited and Amico for making the 2010 tournament a great success.
