USTA Tournament Results 7/11-7/17

Throughout the week of Monday, July 11th, the players of the JMTA took to the courts competing in USTA Eastern action ahead of the USTA National Clay Court Championships starting this past Sunday the 17th.

At the Level 1 Pingry Summer Championships, Luke Smith was on a tear as he only dropped one set (in the Finals match) through 5 rounds of play. To make it to the Finals match, Smith defeated the #8 seed in the round of 32, the #4 seed in the Quarterfinals, and the #6 seed in the Semifinals.
In other Level 1 Hudson Beaudoin won the Boys’ 14 title at the Level 1 Reis Tennis Center Summer Championships. This tournament win marked Beaudoin’s second Level 1 victory of July at the Boys’ 14 level. It should also be mentioned that at this tournament, in addition to winning the singles title, Beaudoin also won the Boys’ 14 Doubles title, while Andrew Ena won the Boys’ 12 title and Lara Berliner won the Girls’ 12 title. This was not Berliner’s only tournament victory of the week, however, as she also claimed the Girls’ 12 title at the Level 1B GST Summer Challenger in impressive fashion.

At the Level 1B CourtSense at Tenafly & BRC July Challenger, Jih Su Ryu won the Girls’ 14 title. Our last winners of this week were Nicholas Murphy and Theodore Murphy, who won the Boys’ 14 and Boys’ 12 titles, respectively at the Level 1B SPORTIME Amagansett July 2016 Challenger.

JMTA Players Win Several Tournaments over the First Weekend of Summer

ITF & USTA Tournament Results 6/18 – 6/27

Over the first official weekend of summer, the players of the JMTA took to the courts to compete in ITF and USTA Eastern section tournaments. As usual, due to our players’ determination to train 52, the JMTA had several tournament wins.

Competing in the ITF Bank of Bermuda Foundation tournament in Bermuda was Christina Sisti. Having to go through two rounds of qualifying, Sisti then won her first round match in straight sets, which led her to a 2nd round matchup against the #5 seed in which Sisti was able to also defeat the #5 seed in straight sets. In the Quarterfinals, Sisti then squared off against fellow JMTA player Michelle Sorroko ultimately winning that match 6-2; 6-4 to earn a spot in the Semifinals. In the semis, Sisti fought from a set down to win the 2nd and 3rd sets and the match. In the Finals match, despite a strong effort, Sisti fell in two sets earning her 2nd place in the tournament.

In USTA Eastern play, our first winner of the weekend at the Level 1 Pingry June Championships was Victoria Sec. In her run to the tournament championship in the Girls’ 18 division, Sec did not drop a set through 4 rounds of play. In other Girls’ 18 action at the Level 1 Reis Tennis Center June Championships at Cornell, Gibson Thomas won both the Girls’ 18 singles and doubles titles. In Girls’ 16 competition at the Level 1 APTC June Championships, Shawnte Beale had a very impressive run to the tournament championship. To win the tournament, Beale defeated the #1 seed in the Quarterfinals, and the #2 seed in the Finals. At the Level 1 SPORTIME Lake Isle June Championships, Ari Cotoulas won the Boys’ 12 title. In his run to the championship, Ari defeated the number 5, 6, and 8 seeds to claim his second tournament victory of 2016.

In Level 1B action at the SPORTIME Bethpage June Challenger, Griffin Schlesinger won the Boys’ 16 title. In Girls’ 12 competition at the Level 1B CMTC June Challenge, Isabella Sha won in dominant fashion, as Sha did not drop a set throughout the tournament. At the Level 1B Courtsense at Bogota & TRC Challenger, Charlie Valentine once again claimed a tournament victory by winning the Boys’ 10 title without dropping a set in 4 rounds of play.

Playing at their home courts over the weekend and winning their respective divisions at the Level 2 SPORTIME Randall’s Island were both Dominick Mosejczuk and Matthew Mosejczuk. In the Boys’ 16 competition, Matthew came back to win a third set tiebreak in his finals match after losing the first set, while Dominick claimed the Boys’ 12 championship after defeating both the #3 and #4 seeds. Our last winner of the weekend was Ryan Mark, who won the Boys’ 12 title at the Level 2 Hardscrabble June Open. In his run to the championship, Mark’s overall game score was 24-5.

JMTA Player Maxwell Kachkarov Wins Eastern Section Super Six Championship!

USTA Tournament Results 6/3-6/6

With the official start of summer just around the corner, the players of the JMTA took to the courts over the first weekend of June playing in tournaments ranging from Eastern Section Super Six events to local Level 3 tournaments.

While numerous JMTA players recorded tournament wins over the weekend, perhaps the most impressive result was Maxwell Kachkarov’s tournament victory in the Boys’ 14 competition at the Eastern Super Six Championships at Mendham. In his run to the Final, Kachkarov faced stiff competition, defeating the #6 seed in the Round of 16, the # 14 seed in the Quarterfinals, and the #9 seed in the Semifinals. In a very tough Finals match, Kachkarov then faced the #5 seed, in which it took a third set tiebreak to win the match.

In Level 1B action, the JMTA had several winners. First, at the Level 1B Mountainside Racquet Club June Challenger, Luke Smith claimed the Boys’ 18 title, while at the Level 1B Jericho/Westbury June Challenger, Emily Tannenbaum won the Girls’ 14 title. Winning both the Girls’ 12 Singles and Doubles titles at the Level 1B GST June Classic was Blakely Duskin. Our last Level 1B winner for this weekend was Theodora Rabman, who won the Girls’ 12 title at the Level 1B SPORTIME Syosset June Challenger.

In Level 2 action at the On Serve Junior June Open, Cal Wider had a very impressive run to the championship as he did not drop a game in 3 rounds of play. Rounding out our winners for this weekend was Allegra Wong, who defeated the #1 seed in the Finals match of the Girls’ 12 competition at the Level 2 Cunningham Park Tennis Center June Open.

Golovin Advances To NCAA Round Of 32

With a 6-4 7-6 (7-4) victory over No. 62 Mayar Sherif Ahmed of Fresno St, LSU women’s tennis freshman Jessica Golovin became the fourth player in school history to advance to the second round of the NCAA Singles Championships.

Golovin’s became just the second freshman in school history to earn a first round win after her victory over Ahmed. She joined Suzana Rodrigues (1994) as the only freshmen to reach the round of 32.

“Jessica fought through some tough, windy conditions to gut out a win against a tricky opponent,” co-head coach Michael Sell said. “I’m proud that she remained in control of the match even during momentum shifts. Jessica sustained great energy throughout the match and willed herself to victory.”

The New York native will take on eight-seeded Sinead Lohan of Miami in the second round. Lohan is 26-1 overall this season and 24-1 in dual play. The sophomore is on a 22-match win streak and holds a record of 14-1 against nationally ranked opponents.

Golovin Set for NCAA Singles Championship

Jessica Golovin will compete for LSU in the NCAA Division I Single Championships, May 25-30 at the Case Tennis Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

She will be joined by her Tigers teammate Joana Vale Costa, who was also selected.

“Joana and Jessica drew tough opponents in the first round, but they have been training hard and are ready to compete,” LSU co-head coach Michael Sell said. “Joana just missed out on being seeded but she looks to gain revenge on an incredible battle with her opponent from ITA National Team Indoor Championships in February.”

Golovin will play Fresno State sophomore Mayar Sherif Ahmed at 11 a.m. CT. The 2016 Mountain West Player of the Year, Ahmed is ranked 62nd in singles play. The Cairo, Egypt native posted a 30-11 record this season and owned a 7-7 record against ranked opponents.

Golovin was named to the All-SEC freshman team after compiling a 12-14 record in dual matches. Golovin played court two for LSU this season and faced off against 17 ranked opponents.

The New York, N.Y. native clinched LSU’s first round NCAA Tournament win over Columbi in Charlottesville, Virginia. Golovin clinched the Lady Tigers’ second round win in the SEC Tournament over Kentucky with a comeback victory as well as LSU’s first ever appearance in the ITA Team Indoor Championships

All matches of the singles championships shall be the best-of-three sets. No-ad scoring and a seven-point tiebreaker (first to seven points, must win by two points) at six-games-all will be used for all matches.
