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.

Congratulations to all of our winners.
