Murrells Inlet teen ranks No. 1 in state for tennis

Hard work and regular training have paid off for Logan Tomovski, 14. 

A longtime student of David Bromberg, head tennis pro at the county-owned Waccamaw Regional Tennis Center, Tomovski finished 2020 as the No. 1 ranked tennis player in the state of South Carolina in the 14 and under age division. 

“It’s not an easy thing to do, to end the year at No. 1,” Bromberg said recently as Tomovski hit balls nearby on one of the center’s clay courts during a training session. “He’s a great competitor, a fantastic competitor and that’s what separates him from a lot of the other kids. Everybody can kind of hit the ball, but it’s about how do you do under pressure, and he’s really good under pressure. He’s a good problem solver – a thinker – and mentally he’s just a little tougher than everybody else. He doesn’t panic when things aren’t going his way, and that gives him an edge.”

End-of-year rankings are based on a player’s top seven tournament results. Tomovski also ended the year ranked 8th in the South and No. 79 in the nation. 

“I just practice a lot,” Tomovski said modestly. 

It’s certainly not an exaggeration. He’s been playing the game since he was a toddler, and has trained under Bromberg since the Waccamaw Regional Tennis Center opened in 2012. Tomovski was 8 at the time. 

“He’s a really good coach,” Tomovski said of Bromberg. Tomovski generally practices at the center 5-6 days a week, he added. He’s a 9th-grader at Connections Academy and also plays on Waccamaw High School’s varsity tennis team. Tomovski said he first picked up a racquet at age 3 with encouragement from his father, Alex, who is a good player in his own right. Tomovski’s brother Braedon, 16, also plays at a high level. There’s definitely some sibling rivalry on the court, as the boys regularly practice together. But they never go up against each other in tournament play, Tomovski said. 

“It would get a little too heated. But we play doubles a lot in tournaments,” he added. 

Tomovski said he has looked casually at colleges that would offer the best opportunities to continue advancing his play after high school, but hasn’t settled on anything yet. 

“I’ve still got some time,” he said. “But I know I want to keep playing.” 

The Waccamaw Regional Tennis Center, located at 302 Gilman Road in Pawleys Island, offers court rentals, programming and lessons for players of all ages and experience levels. Tennis programming and instruction are also offered at other recreation facilities across the county. For more information, call (843) 545-3450.
