The men’s and women’s finals of the Los Alamos Tennis Club’s tournament are scheduled for this morning at Urban Park.

The two-day tournament will conclude today with the final round in the singles and doubles brackets. The men’s final, which pits Andrei Vakhtin against Billy Wilton, will start at 9 a.m., while the women’s final, in which Warapa Prime will take on Lynne Higdon, is set for a 9:30 a.m. start. Other matches will start at various times today.

In the men’s singles draw, Vakhtin upended 2009 tournament runner-up Kent Brown in straight sets, 6-3, 6-4 in Saturday afternoon’s semifinal to advance to the championship round.

To win the 2010 tournament, Vakhtin will have to get through both Wilton brothers. Vakhtin topped Lloyd Wilton in straight sets during the men’s first round to get to the semifinal.

Billy Wilton held off Stephen Townsley in Saturday’s other men’s semifinal at the tournament, taking that match 7-5, 6-3. Wilton grabbed a 6-2, 6-0 decision over Mike Fitzsimmons to open the tournament.

Matt Whicker, the 2009 singles champion, is nursing an injury and elected not to play in the men’s top draw this year, but will have a chance to again be half of the tournament’s top doubles team.
