Jordan Reznik, a fourth grader who attends Saddle Rock Elementary School, received an award from the United States Tennis Association (USTA) on May 3 for being the #1 ranked player from Long Island in the USTA Eastern Section’s Boys 10’s Division.
“Jordan started to play tennis at the Great Neck Parkwood Tennis Center when he was 5, where he first got the love for the game,” said his father, Michael Reznik. “Today Jordan is training at Robbie Wagner Tennis Academy in Glen Cove, where he plays every day for a few hours.” He also loves to run with his dad, who’s a marathon runner.
Jordan, who just turned 10, is currently ranked #2 in the USTA Eastern Section. How does he feel about his accomplishments? “Jordan is proud of himself, and is focusing now on trying to be #1 in the Eastern Section,” said his father. “He said his secret is a lot of hard work, and a mom that doesn’t stop pushing him—and taking him everywhere.”
