Postseason play began Friday at Airport Fitness with two hard-fought mixed doubles matches.
Gene Erez and Irina Gerhard took on Jeanne Holenko and Kye Howell in the first match. Both teams showcased some intense, spirited tennis, with spectacular shots from both sides. Mr. Erez and Ms. Gerhard prevailed in two tough sets (6-4, 7-5), and moved on to play again this weekend.
Maggie Mae and Leo McHugh faced off against Tim and Dori Clark in the second match. The first set was a close, grind-it-out affair, with both teams exchanging difficult and well-placed shots. Ms. Mae and Mr. McHugh held on to win the set 7-5. The second set lacked the luster and grit of the first set, as Ms. Mae and Mr. McHugh steamrolled to an easy 6-2 victory and a place in this week’s playoff match.
