Hello out there!
We are all gearing up for the US Open. Vika is back! Vena has 80 points. Djokovich pulls out the win even when not playing his best. Ehrlich continues to hold at #1. And…I’m done. Yes, its a sad day for your long legged Commissioner. I shall continue to receive and update all scores of course but I am officially withdrawing from the US Open AND our Summer Challenge Ladder. My left knee tendon(s) continue to…hurt. I am planning on playing in the indoor singles league coming soon and I feel if I want any chance of being competitive in that, I must truly rest and Ice. Sorry to all my fans who were already planning on attending my upcoming matches. I hope to be back next season. A special thank you to Conall O’Cleirigh who took me down in three season-ending sets a few days ago. The man is merciless on the court, but I must say he makes some delicious soup.
Elsewhere, some incredible tennis scores out there this last week-ish. Mike Freeman and Scott Enos had an epic battle which Freeman survived, taking the last two sets in tie breakers! Roman Krasikov also defeated Cliff Chuang in an 11-9 third set super tie breaker for the ages!
Remember we extend to the end of September so there is still a lot of time to do some damage out there.
Challenge away! Be well.
I will be sitting by the computer, ice on my knee…quietly sobbing…waiting for your scores.
