JMTA Players Win Numerous Tournaments ahead of National Clay Court Championships

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.

Congratulations to all of our winners!
