Wind Burn

Filed under: Photos, USTA National Championship, USTA Playoffs — blog @ 5:22 pm

Play began this morning. We were due to start at 10am, but we had to wait and didn’t hit the courts till 11am. What a beautiful day. Unfortunately, the wind was amazingly strong. Weather forecasts say wind gusts can be up to 50mph. It definitely felt like it. After 4 hours out there, we weren’t sun burned, we were wind burned.
Round 1, we played Mid-Atlantic, a team for North Virgina. Here’s are lineup.

1 Singles – Robert Cornett – 3-6, 6-4, 1-0, WON in three sets

2 Singles – John Saunders – 6-3, 6-3, WON in two sets

1 Doubles – Terry Whitlock and Mark Crichett – 6-4, 7-5, WON in two sets

2 Doubles – James Livingston and Jason Novoselsky – 6-3, 6-2, WON in two sets

3 Doubles – Jay Posey and Kav Tucker – 6-7, 6-4, 0-1, LOST in three sets

For Round 2, Captain Mike has put the same lineup in against Middle States from Philadelphia. They lost earlier this morning, but they were definitely a strong team.

1 Singles – Robert Cornett – WON in three sets

2 Singles – John Saunders – WON in three sets

1 Doubles – Terry Whitlock and Mark Crichett – WON in two sets

2 Doubles – James Livingston and Jason Novoselsky – WON in two sets

3 Doubles – Jay Posey and Kav Tucker – LOST in two sets

Here are some pictures from Round 1.

During the lengthy delay and to get used to the 50mph wind gusts, the guys were warming up in the lawn.
