October Overflows with Great Performances at All Levels

October was a busy month on all levels, with professional, college and junior tennis in full swing. Due to space limitations, I'm not including ITF JB1 Pan American Closed champions Liv Hovde and Jack Anthrop (coverage of their victories is here), nor was there room for all the former collegians who won titles on the ITF World Tennis Tour last month. But below are 20 players who earned recognition for accomplishments across the globe.

Keegan Smith
The former UCLA star was seriously injured in a skateboard accident last spring that ended his senior year and kept him out of action throughout the summer. But in his return to competition at the $15,000 USTA Pro Circuit tournament in Lubbock, Texas last month, the 23-year-old from Southern California fashioned a run right out of a Hollywood script, earning his first Pro Circuit singles title as the No. 7 seed. Smith, the 2019 NCAA doubles champion, defeated Ohio State junior Cannon Kingsley, the No. 8 seed, 7-5, 6-2 for the title. He is currently at a career-high of 662 in the ATP rankings.

Hady Habib
The recent Texas A&M standout played five consecutive weeks in $15,000 ITF World Tennis Tour events last month in Egypt, putting together a 17-3 record, which included two titles. The 23-year-old, who represents Lebanon in Davis Cup, kicked off October with a title, with the No. 7 seed defeating unseeded Italian teen Lorenzo Rottoli 6-3, 6-4 in the final. Two weeks later, Habib defeated Lukas Krainer of Austria 6-2, 6-4 in the final between unseeded players, with all five of his victories coming in straight sets. He is now in the ATP Top 600 for the first time. (Photo credit: Texas A&M Athletics)
