JMTA Players impress in USTA Intersectional & Zone Team Championships as well as ITA Summer Circuit & Eastern Level 1B and Level 2O Tournaments

ITA & USTA Tournament Results 7/6 – 7/13

Over the week of July 6th through July 13th, several of the players of the JMTA took to the courts competing in team intersectional and zonal championships in several states including Alabama, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina. Throughout the week of competition, our players competed in a series of matches for their teams playing singles and doubles matches, as well as a mixed doubles match. Each player’s match record can be found below:

After committing to Tulane University in the Fall, Christina Sisti found herself a finalist at the ITA Summer Circuit Women’s Open at Rutgers University. After defeating the #4 and #12 seeds to reach the Semifinals, Sisti was defeated by the eventual tournament champion and #1 overall seed. It should be noted, however, that Sisti won the most games off the #1 seed throughout the entire tournament.

In local play throughout the weekend of July 8th-10th, several JMTA players won Eastern section tournaments.

At the Level 1B Armonk July Challenger, Ashley Lessen won the Girls’ 18 title. In Boys’ 16 competition at the Level 1B Atlantic Beach Marathon Challenger, Julian Szuper defeated the #1 seed in the finals match to win the tournament. Also defeating the #1 seed in his Finals match for Boys’ 14 competition was Milan Jain at the Level 1B SPORTIME Lake Isle July Challenger. At the Level 1B PWTA Summer Challenger, Leila Epstein won the Girls’ 14 title. At the Level 1B Ross School July Challenger, the JMTA had two winners. First, in Girls’ 14 competition, Blakely Duskin won the Girls’ 12 title, while Cal Wider won the Boys’ 12 title. At the Level 1B 10U Green Ball Challenger at SPORTIME Quogue, Marco Ziets-Segura won the Boys’ 10 title by defeating the #1 seed in the Finals. Our last winner of the weekend was Matisse Farzam, who won the Boys’ 12 title at the Level 2 SPORTIME Randall’s Island Summer 2016 Open by defeating the #1 seed in the Finals.

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.

Congratulations to all of our winners!
