Member Guest Tournament

29 Jul

Eleven teams competed for the title of Member/Guest Champion on the weekend of July 25 and 26. Some wonderfully talented guest tennis players provided some great tennis. One of the most exciting matches was the Semi-Final between the #2 seeded team of Andrew Kimball and his guest Julie Lilien versus unseeded team of Matt Fishbein and his guest David Gopstein. Their match lasted two hours forty minutes with Matt and David winning in two tie-break sets. They then had to play the top seeded team of member Jamie Porsella and his guest Sanae Oyama in the Finals 20 minutes later. Jamie and Sanae won the match 6-2, 6-3. Pictured are left to right below are David Gopstein, Matt Fishbein, Jamie Porsella and Sanae Oyama.

The top four teams advanced to the semi-finals on Sunday.  The Champions, Maria Salnikowa and Fabio Arcilla defeated Phyliss Greenberg & Jonathan Holtz in the Finals.

It was great to see Jimmy “Wheels” Wallenstein on his return trip to the Knick.  Jimmy moved to Mass. To teach at Wellesley College but will be back in Brooklyn in two years.  He looked great, still has that beautiful backhand and the only conversation on the court was between him and his opponent (inside joke!).  Pictured with Jimmy are Ray Scotto, Jimmy, Ray Habib & Lynn Brown.
