The Rossmoor Men's Tennis team took on the Round Hill Country Club squad in a Senior Men's Interclub League (SMIL) match on February 5 at the Buckeye courts in Rossmoor. There was not a cloud in the sky, and the sun was shining very brightly. This condition made lobbing an even more effective tactic than usual!
The Rossmoor team prevailed 3-1. The results for each line were as follows: At line 1, Chris Slee and Bernie Wolf won a hard fought contest 7-5, 6-2. At line 2, Larry Barclay and Al Peters won their first set 6-3 and were ahead 5-4 in the second set when their opponents retired. At line 3, David Hickey and Barry Brian won 6-2, 7-5 by fully employing the "lob into the sun" strategy. At line 4, Chris Christopher and Nicky Abdolhosseini played a tough match but lost 4-6, 4-6.
Ken Steiner was the Rossmoor captain for this match and shared these insights into his team’s victory. The next match for the Rossmoor Men will be March 4 at home at 11am. The team welcomes all who would like to come out to watch some entertaining tennis.
