THE BOB NOLEN CUP

 

 

This is the first league play since the Corona Virus Pandemic hit the world.  Bob Nolen Cup was chosen to say how much Bob Nolen has done for tennis in Los Alamos.
 
The two teams are
Coached by David Rutherford - The Sultan's of Swing
Coached by Sergey Kurennoy - The Enemy
 
The first round was held on April 9, 2021, at Urban Park Courts and the High School Courts.  The results are below.
 

Firstly many thx to Rd1 players. From my vantage point it looked like we all had fun, playing some great tennis. "The Enemy" just snuck the win in a close fought battle. Congratulations to The Enemy, winning the first round 3-2. Scores are below. 

 

S1. Alan "Waffles" Williams won against Kevin in a real high quality 2hr epic, 7:5, 6:4. A huge crowd enjoyed what ended up being the decider as both teams were locked at 2-2. 
S2. Greg aka "the human backboard" won against Jaime "not Jamie" Gomez 6:0, 6:0. Jaime you are like a good bottle of red and will improve as the weeks progress. 
D1. Paul K/ Warapha aka "whooper" went down 2-6, 4-6 vs Gilbert/Sergey.  A promising performance considering the beginning of the season. 
D2. Devon Vest/ Kwan cruised to victory over Kin/Kerry 6-0, 6-2.  They were a strong combo performing some quality service games, oh and some silky soccer skillz from DV. 
D3. Bob "the cup" Nolen / Lorraine had a solid win over Andrea/Linda 6-3, 6-2. How appropriate for Bob to win Rd1 of his inaugural tournament. 

The league will last for 5 weeks on Friday nights with the weekend as make up if weather causes cancellation.  The next round will be April 16, 2021 at both sites.
