The men’s team ran into a buzz saw at Round Hill CC on May 23. We lost 4-1. Here’s the scores:

  1. Larry Barclay and Frank Haswell. L 6-1, 7-5.
  2. David Hickey and Bernie Wolf. L 6-2, 6-2.
  3. Jerry Robinson and Dave Kern. L 2-6, 6-2, 10-12.
  4. Ron Wyman and Barry Brian. L 6-3, 7-5.
  5. Chris Christopher and Murray Veroff. W 6-3, 6-4.

At Line 1, Larry and Frank came up against a former collegiate player and his team mate who were both very strong, as the final score denotes. They fought back in the second set and only a single point made the difference between winning and losing the second set.

Bernie and David, playing at Line 2, were overcome by a huge server by the name of Mike. Mike not only had a big serve, but he also had smooth finesse and touch, hitting many drop shots for outright winners. Power and finesse in the same player is very unusual.

Line 3 players Jerry and Dave had many chances to win but were overcome by a wily RH team. The final 10-point tiebreak third set was a nail biter with the lead changing hands many times.

Line 4 players Barry and Ron, having lost the first set, were up 5-2 in the second, but, alas, their opponents made a comeback and won the second set. What a revoltin’ development!

Chris and Murray played at Line 5 and were the only Rossmoor team to win. Hey, one out of five is better than none.

The team thanks Larry Barclay for handling the captain duties.
