Tennis Results

Well, the weekend is finally over and the we have 2 trophies to show for it!

Jon & Rick won in the men's doubles! They played the first round and won in 2 sets Friday night before the rain started... 7-6, 6-1.
Then in the semi-finals they played a very tough team (the #2 seeded team) and they won in 2 sets! 6-3, 6-3!
Onto the finals on Sunday morning... They played against the #1 seeded team and won in 3 sets...6-4, 4-6, 7-5. They were both so thrilled! They had some great, great points and some great times.

The women's rounds were a little different as there were only 4 teams, so instead of an eliminating round, we played a round robin, meaning we played each team (so we had 3 matches). Our first match was against the Killer Mellen Sisters. That match started outside in the drizzle (because we played on clay courts, we could play in light rain)... The rain continued and when it finally got very rainy, we went inside.
My partner, Cami (a friend of Allie & Ashley) and I won in 2 sets.... 6-2, 6-4. We got very lucky.
Then, we played a very tough team on Saturday and we won 6-3, 6-4.
Finally, we played our last match today and we won 6-2, 6-1! So, we won the most matches.

Honestly, between the weather and the stress of the tournament (there was no bathroom at this outdoor club, so we had to drive over to King Arthur Flour to use the restroom) I was glad it was over!
