LATC hosting championships at Urban Park

Gilbert Ratliff was on the winning side of two doubles contests Saturday.
Ratliff, who with one of his doubles partners, John Charles, advanced to the final round of the men’s A draw, and with his other partner, his daughter, Sidra Hsieh-Ratliff, advanced to the final of the A mixed doubles. Both of those contests are set for Sunday at Urban Park.
The LATC started its two-day tournament Saturday morning. In this year’s tournament are seven different age and gender draws.
Heading into Saturday afternoon’s play, Geoff Mills and Justin Chang had advanced to the semifinals of the men’s A singles draw, with both of them winning in straight sets.
Mills topped Cihan Akcay 6-2, 6-1 in his first round contest, while Chang, a hard-swinging, hard-serving newcomer to the tournament, swept Alex Tarra 6-0, 6-1.
More than 30 participants are taking part in this year’s tournament.
In the top men’s doubles flight, Ratliff/Charles is seeking its second straight LATC championship. Ratliff/Charles defeated Forrest White/George Margevicius in the finals of last year’s tournament.
In mixed doubles, Ratliff/Hsieh-Ratliff knocked off Mike Fugate/Lauren Fugate 6-0, 6-2 to advance to that draw’s championship round.
