Tennis Weekend

We played the first round of a tennis tournament on Friday and it was so much fun....
It was a member-guest, so Jon, Allie and I each invited a guest to play.
My partner, Rich and I played a fantastic match, the best we have ever played!  (We play every Monday night either together or against each other and have been playing together for a couple of years).  We lost to Fe & Suki, two very good and fun players.  We won the first set 6-2, lost the second 3-6 and then lost the tiebreak set 7-10.  It was so much fun.  We all laughed a lot, played our hearts out and had a great time.
Jon & Graciana won 6-1, 6-0 in a quick match against two fun players.
The real queen of the court, though was Allie.  She and Evan, a Hanover High school tennis player defeated our friends Rich & Barb 6-4, 5-7, 10-6!  Allie played the best I have ever seen her play.  She was light on her feet, aggressive and determined!  She was a panther!  (I tell her and Ash to be panthers on the court.... wait for your moment and then POUNCE).
Evan, her partner was a shy 10th grader, but a very good player and very kind to everyone.
It was a great night.
Jon & Graciana play against Allie & Evan in the semi-finals tomorrow night!  What a nail biter it is going to be!
I will keep you posted
