Despite having a year’s hiatus, Jeena Kim successfully defended her Los Alamos Tennis Club women’s title.
The LATC held its annual championship tournament July 26-27 at Urban Park, with approximately 40 players participating.
Kim won the 2011 LATC women’s championship draw, but because of low participation numbers in 2012, there was no women’s flight. But this year, Kim got a crack at defending her title and did just that by defeating Debi Croney in the final, winning in straight sets, 6-2, 6-1.
In the men’s top singles flight, John Park, a former LATC champion, returned to title form, topping Bob Tonelli 6-1, 6-1 to earn that crown.
The team of Gilbert Ratliff/John Charles earned a victory in the men’s A doubles draw, topping Forrest White/George Margevicius, 6-4, 6-3, while sisters Gillian Hsieh-Ratliff/Sidra Hsieh-Ratliff came back from a set down to top Joel Williams/Gordon Medford in the B doubles draw, 3-6, 6-3, 6-3.
In one of the closest matches of the tournament, the finals of the mixed A doubles competition, Ryan Maupin/Sidra Hsieh-Ratliff outlasted Chad Bustard/Gillian Hsieh-Ratliff 7-5, 4-6, 6-4.
Other winners included Tom Kelley/Marlene Kelley in mixed B doubles and Peter Greene in the men’s over-50 singles draw.
