The New Review in Roseburg, Oregon wrote an article about Canyonville Christian Academy’s Tim Chen. They also interviewed teammates and Coach Fye about Tim and his abilities.  The following is an excerpt from the local paper:

Tim Chen’s poker face betrays no emotion on the field of play, whether he’s ahead or behind.  Lately, the Canyonville Christian Academy tennis player has only had to stifle his own fist pumping rather than wipe sweat from his brow.

Chen is perfect in seven matches this season as he tries for his third consecutive berth to the 4A/3A/2A/1A state tournament. In his last two, Chen has served up what they call in tennis jargon “double bagels” by beating Klamath Union’s Kris Crawford and Hidden Valley’s Kevin Payne by scores of 6-0, 6-0.

Not that Chen would rub an opponent’s nose in such a feat. “He’s a pretty calm player,” said teammate Steven Huang. “He might shout at himself if he misses a shot, but other than that he’s pretty quiet out there.”

Chen owns many records for the five-year old CCA tennis program. He was the first player to qualify for the state tournament in 2009, and as a junior last year he got the program’s first win at state, clinching a top eight finish. Chen was there for CCA’s first home match, and inaugurated that with a win too.
