The Semi’s on Saturday saw Greg Van Schaack have a classic floor game battle against David Boenning. Greg Van Schaack hit many openings to win 6-3, 6-3.The second Semi saw Peter Vogt play a flawless game of tennis against Al Gordon. Vogt couldn’t miss and won 6-1, 6-1. The stage was set for a great Final on Sunday. Greg was keen to redeem himself from a earlier loss to Peter in the 50’s a week prior. The first set was knotted at four games all and this game saw twelve deuces. With a long rally exchange Van Schaack hit a ball from his backhand side over the high part of net after a tremendous get from Peter he ruptured his hamstring and had to retire the match. Peter was playing a very solid game up to that point and was gutted that he could not continue.
In the first doubles semifinal, Van Schaack and Peter Clement beat Fazzini and Boenning 6-0 6-1. The second semifinal saw Peter Vogt and Al Gordon take out Sewell Hodges and Jules Zacher 6-1 6-1
