    Of eight of "our" supersenior divisions, only the 75s team came through as winners.  Congratulations to George McCabe, John Powless, Saul Snyder and Jack Vredevelt for their decisive 3-0 win over Canada in the final match.  Three of our USA teams (55s, 70s, 80s) lost their final match to finish in second place.  The 55s and 80s teams both lost to Australia while the 70s lost to Germany.  The losses in the 70s and 80s both came down to a third set in the deciding doubles — where our USA teams both lost 6-3.  In the other divisions, our 60s team finished 5th and our 65s team finished third.

  • Pinehurst SC, September 8-14 (70, 85 & 90 Clay)

    Alex Swetka and King Van Nostrand surprised — in opposite ways.  Swetka completed a double slam (winning all four gold balls in both singles and doubles) while Van Nostrand lost his first (non-injured) match in many years.  Newt Meade continued his emergence as "the man" in the 85s.

    Fred Farzanegan continued his stranglehold on the 70s with another strong showing capped by his three-set win over perennial winner King Van Nostrand 2-6,6-2,6-0.  (Farzanegan, who's won all three 2008 nationals to date, elected not to enter the Grass that begins just a day after this win.)  Van Nostrand had worked hard to defeat Bob Duesler 6-4,4-6,6-1 in the semis while Farzanegan dispatched Mark Forrester 6-3,6-2. Duesler & Jim Nelson once again cruised through the doubles draw without losing a set finishing by topping Les Dodson & Jack Vredevelt 6-3,6-1 and then Henry Baughman & Jim Landin 6-2,6-2.  Baughman & Landin had edged second seeds Bob Helton & Len Lindborg 6-0,4-6,6-4.  Welcome back, Jim!

    Newt Meade once again defeated Aussie Neville Halligan in the final of the 85 singles — this time by the score of 6-2,4-6,6-2 — while top seeds Marvin Henderson & Bob Sherman declined to play off for third place (nasty, nasty bronze).  Meade had blitzed Sherman 6-1,6-0 while Henderson was ousting Henderson 6-4,6-0.  Halligan & Meade again partnered effectively to win the doubles with wins over Jim Carleton & Ken Hayes 6-3,6-1 and then over Henderson & Sherman 6-2,3-6,6-2.  Henderson & Sherman had dominated Ted Heisler & W.T. Mathes 6-0,6-3.

    Alex Swetka had an easy run in the 90 singles with a semi-final win over an injured Allie Ritzenberg 3-2,ret(inj) and then over Bill Kuntz 6-2,6-1.  Kuntz had defeated unseeded Nels Glesne 6-0,6-2.  Swetka & Ed Osgood (where was Bob Mix?) closed out the 90 doubles with close wins over Vero Ajello & Wade MacDonald 1-6,6-3,6-2 and Kuntz & Ritzenberg 3-6-6-2,7-5 in the final.  Kuntz & Ritzenberg had mastered Barrett Scallet & Norman Stoll 6-0,6-3.

    Phil Landauer won gold in the 55s by narrowly defeating Geoff Cykman 4-6,6-2,7-5 in the semis and then doubles partner Tom Smith 3-6,6-1,6-1 in the final.  Smith had bested Skip Walther 1-6,6-4,6-3.  Landauer & Smith edged Neal Newman & Jody Rush 7-5,7-5 before an even closer call with Oliver Scott & Walther 7-6(5),7-6(5).  Scott and Walther had defeated Cykman & Andrew Stanley 6-4,7-6(3). 

    Brian Cheney extended the family franchise by winning the 60 singles and doubles.  Cheney bested David Nash 7-6(0),6-2 and then edged doubles partner Bob Litwin 6-4,3-6,6-3 in the final.  Litwin had ousted neighbor Doug Barrow 4-6,6-1,6-2.  Cheney & Litwin won the doubles finishing with wins over Neal Newman & Jody Rush 6-4,4-6,6-1 and Dave & Dan Bohannon 6-4,6-1.  The Bohannons had controlled Michael Beautyman & Nash 6-1,6-2.

    Noteworthy oddity:  Neal Newman & Jody Rush lost in both doubles semi-finals to the eventual winners and then earned both third place playoffs with walkover wins.  Congratulations too to the organizers for a fine job of seeding as #1 defeated #2 in three events while it was #1 over #3 in the fourth and the losing semi-finalists were predominantly 3's and 4's as well.
