David Lee had a big showing at this year’s Los Alamos Tennis Club championship tournament.
Lee picked up the men’s A singles flight crown and he and doubles partner Bob Tonelli advanced to the finals of the men’s A doubles before falling.
The LATC held its annual tournament Saturday and Sunday at Urban Park.
Lee took on Bill Vigil in the championship match Sunday.
To get to the final, Vigil beat 2011 runner-up Kevin Mitchell in straight sets, 6-2, 6-2. But Vigil suffered a muscle injury in the first set of the final against Lee and was forced to retire — Lee was up 4-2 in the set when Vigil was forced to exit.
On his way to the title, Lee knocked out Ryan Maupin in the semifinal, topping 6-2, 6-1.
Maupin and Vigil teamed up in the men’s A doubles and would upset Lee/Tonelli in the championship match. Vigil/Maupin took a 6-4, 6-4 decision to claim that title.
There was not a separate women’s singles or doubles category for this year’s tournament.
In mixed B singles, Grigory Ovanesyan topped Sidra Hsieh-Ratliff for the championship, winning 6-0, 6-4.
In mixed A doubles, Gilbert Ratliff/Linda Hsieh topped Bob Tonelli/Alison Walters by a final of 6-2, 6-1. In mixed B doubles, Christopher Lee/Ovanesyan pulled off an uspet over top-seeded Tom Kelly/Bob Nolan.
No. 1 seed John Park defeated No. 2 seed Geoffrey Mills in the 50-and-over singles division, winning 6-1, 6-1.
