Sweet Spotter expands to Princeton

The Road to THE TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP 2023

10/29 UTR 10U - Bethesda

10/29 UTR 14U - Princeton

10/30 UTR 14U - Bethesda



At the first Sweet Spotter Series held outside the DMV, Gwyneth Fedus defeated Maven Flamhaft in the final, 4-1, 4-0 to take the championship at Princeton Day School in Princeton, NJ.


It was a brisk morning among the leaves and hockey players arriving for practice at the rink next door. Fedus's passing shots proved too precise for Flamhaft, who had traveled nearly 2.5 hours to compete in the Series based on its reputation, and the dearth of options in upstate New York around this time of year.


The same morning, 150 miles south, both Shiloh Auzoux and Graeme Ebert made runs for the title, but Siena Auzoux withstood every test to go 5-0 in the group and win the championship, her first Series title.


She went to a tiebreak with Ebert that went to the wire 7-5, though once Shiloh Auzoux defeated him and Caroline Ebert slipped past in another tiebreak, the true de facto final became the other showdown between siblings. Siena won 4-2 over Shiloh in the decisive match.


The largest tournament of the weekend belonged to the older kids on Sunday. Zoe Taylor had to right the ship just in time to win a tiebreak in the quarterfinals against John Ozenci, but from there she proved dominant to win the championship over Yuv Sharma in the top bracket.


In the second draw, Marin Rosenthal faced a similar challenge, this one in the semifinals, going the distance against Leo Berger before prevailing for the title against Carter Mills.


That made a total of 25 players over the weekend up and down the East Coast.


The full tables now look like this.


Each weekend until Thanksgiving, Tennis Central is bringing you USTA and UTR tournaments at Holton-Arms School. Earn points for advancing through each round, just like on the pro tours, and qualify for the TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP at season's end.


Bigger events offer more points, with the TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP offering the most, as well as prizes.


Check here for updates each week to the Sweet Spotter Series Rankings, a 52-week points system based on the pro tours, as well as recaps of all the action and photos.
