That’s right, it’s that time of year again, the US Pro Singles is upon us! As always it is one of my favorite events, and this year I will be going for my sixth consecutive title! It’s crazy to think about, and I know that everyone out there will be looking to stop me. That is what keeps me motivated though, and I am looking forward to an incredibly strong field at this years tournament. Please take a look at the draw below!
US PRO SINGLES DRAW
After a long wait for the semi-finals, I am excited to say that my team (Boston/Washington) is officially in the USCTA National League Finals. We defeated a tough New York team in the semi-finals earlier this week. The match took place on the 19th of May at the Aiken Tennis Club in Aiken, SC.
We managed to sweep the night against New York, winning all three matches played. First Tony Hollins defeated Barney Tanfield 6/5 6/3 in what I believe was the most important win of the season for Tony. His game has been up and down due to injuries, and it was great to see him get a good result. Next I was up against James Stout, and I managed to control the match to a final score of 6/3 6/3. Finally was the doubles, which went back and forth, but eventually fell in our favor 8/7.
I am now preparing for my trip up the East Coast, starting tomorrow with a flight to Washington DC, where I will be doing some clinics and preparing for the National League Finals next Friday. If you are in the area please let me know!
The draw for the upcoming World Championship Doubles has officially been posted! I am getting very excited, and am training hard for the event. The event is being played the first week in June, at the Tuxedo Club in New York. Two years ago my partner, Tim Chisholm, and I were two points away from winning the title. We are hoping to improve on that this year! Please take a look at the link below to see the draw.
WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP DOUBLES DRAW
Time is flying and I have a few major events coming up! The next one will be the USCTA National League Semi-Finals. The year I have been playing for a combined Washington/Boston team, and during the regular season we won 3 out of our 4 matches. That put us into the semi-finals against a New York team which we had played in the Final the last two years! The match is going to be played at the Aiken Tennis Club on Tuesday, the 19th of May (also known as the day before my birthday!). Below is the schedule for the matches, and if you have any interest in coming, please shoot me an email as tickets are available. Just email: firstname.lastname@example.org
