Commitment Announcement
Fall Signing Week '16: Sah Commits to Stanford

Blue Chip senior Timothy Sah is one of the top junior tennis players in the country, and his results from this past summer back that up. He captured the singles title at the USTA Southern California Sectionals, posted ten victories in Delray Beach to win the consolation final at the USTA Clay Court Championships, reached the quarterfinals at the USTA Nationals in Kalamazoo, and partnered with Ryan Seggerman to reach the doubles finals at a 10K Futures in Irvine.

Next year, Sah will take his game from San Diego up to Palo Alto - where he will compete for the Stanford Cardinal.

"I wanted to go to a school with a good balance of tennis and academics," said Sah. "I also wanted to go to a school where I had a good connection with the coaches."

Sah looks forward to working closely with the coaches when he arrives on campus.

"They both spend a lot of time with the players - privately or semi-privately. They genuinely want to help each player be the best tennis player they can be. Of all the schools I was considering, I really felt that Coach Goldstein and Coach Coupe had a great understanding of my game - and where I need to improve to bring my game to the next level."

Sah took his first visit to Stanford in May, and then he took an official visit in October. Those visits were key to his comfort level.

"On those visits, I had the chance to room with two different guys on the team in two different dorms, and I got to shadow some of the guys on the team around for a few days," said the 5'8" right-hander. "I think I got a good feel for what it's like to be a tennis player and college student at Stanford."

This year, the Cardinal returns four of their top six singles players from a squad that reached the Sweet 16 in the 2016 NCAA Tournament, and they add William Genesen - a Blue Chip recruit from last year - to the mix. None of those players are seniors in 2016-17, so Sah will be joining a very experienced group.
