Van Horne captures 27-player tourney title
The Road to THE TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP 2023
Apr 8 - UTR 14U Sweet Spotter Open
No fewer than twenty-seven players dueled it out over last Saturday morning and into the deep afternoon at Holton Arms School. William Van Horne, no stranger to the TC Junior Circuit, emerged from all of them in a thrilling 7-5 victory over finalist Margaret Carl.
A number of Tennis Central's Incubator players performed well. Two of them reached the semifinals, while Serena Provinse's early showing was cut short in a tense third-set tiebreak. David Gong met the champion and fell in two tight sets including a tiebreak, and Daphne Dunlap took Carl to a third-set tiebreak.
It is worth noting that this week coming up will mark the anniversary of the Tour and, therefore, the first time points will be dropped from players' rankings based on the 52-week cycle. That should make for an interesting shake-up among the top ranks of each tour.
