Richmond Tennis Association Match Results

February 12, 2018 Matches


You're on a roll, 40W3.0! Let's keep it going. Here's a match summary from team scribe Stacie & me:

The RTA ladies continued their winning streak on Saturday and brought home another team win of 3-2 against CCC! Go RTA! We are undefeated! Here are the results: 

S1:  Gina Chen won 6-0, 6-2 

Gina pretty much overwhelmed her opponent, taking the first set swiftly. After a somewhat lengthy chat between sets, her opponent started a comeback before Gina said 'enough' to win 4 games in a row to take the set to give us a 2-0 lead in the team match (due to CCC's default of S2).  

S2:  CCC defaulted this line on Friday evening, giving Karen D her first singles win 6-0, 6-0.    

D1:  Stacie Maa and Linda Low lost 1-6, 4-6

CCC fielded a very strong & experienced pair in D1. Our S&L duo played well, but were not a match for them. Team S&L did have a number of good rallies, forced some errors on their part, and in an effort to change things up, switched sides after the first set which led to a closer second set. We’ll be ready next time!  

D2:  Kelly Bradley and Elena Gonzales lost 5-7, 3-6

K&E almost pulled off the first set, but the CCC pair upped their game at 5-all to break and take the first set. K&E switched sides in the second set, which seemed to help even though the score doesn't reflect their better play. Kelly is settling in to playing league tennis and is getting better and more confident every match. Elena & she played very well together, communicating well and making good adjustments.  

D3:  Laura Blanton and Vicky Mangaser won 6-0, 6-3

Team L&V played a couple of newbies and took the match handily. This is the second time Team L&V have played together and once again, good communication, strong net play, and proper positioning led to their win.  

We are 5-0!!! We meet CRS next Saturday; they are currently in first place because they won one more individual match. In the past, CRS has been known to call line judges, so come and join us if you’re not playing; we may need you to be a line judge for our team! And, we need a LOUD cheering section! Let’s do this ladies!
