Hello Tennis Ladder Combatants!
The end of the tennis ladder season is nigh. September 24th is the last day of official competition.
Things were a little quiet this Labor Day weekend but there was one battle on Monday that must be reported, as Jason Wu defeated Tom Walsh in a super close 7-5, 7-6 battle in the Heat!
Previous to that loss, Tom Walsh had a clutch 10-8 third set tie break win over Roman Krasikov. Roman then defeated yours truly the next day. I’m not happy about it.
Conroy Jackson also pulled thru recently with a third set 10-7 tie break win over Aron Chuc.
With only a few weeks to go, a few questions remain….will anyone take down the Mr. Losey? Will Sarah seek revenge for the top spot or will Alan Tang make a late season challenge? You could cut the tension with a knife!
Over on the points ladder, despite my recent LOSING streak, I am somehow atop the standings with Conroy and Alan Gnani right below. Remember that the top 2 on the points ladder receive prizes. Awkward.
There will also be a prize for whoever has made the biggest jump from where they were at the start of the standings to the end of the league but I’ll leave that a mystery for now.
Hopefully the heat will break soon and we can all get out there and play these last few weeks. Along with my friend, and the first person I defeated at the start of the summer, Carlos Alcaraz.
Until next time….
