Local results from Westwood.

I'm not really up on the Seniors Tournament Scene, but in my mind Westwood is the biggie.

Some local results:

Tim Green lost in the semis of the 35 singles to Nick Smith, who went on to win the tournament.

Tim and Herb Morton lost in the first round of the doubles.

Former 4.0 Hurricane Jason Kern made it to the finals of the 40 singles where he lost to Juan DeKruyff.

Kern also managed to make it to the finals of the 35 doubles with Justin Huffman where they lost to former number one doubles player in the world (in 2000) Jared Palmer.

A tough go of it for Houstonians in the 45 singles. Kelly Ward was upset early, Herb Morton lost in the first round and Andres Ballesteros stretched the number two seed to three sets before falling.

Val Wilder has probably been top ranked in the world in his age group in past years, so I was really impressed that Robert Bickmore was able to stretch him to 11-9 in the third set breaker before falling. Wilder also took out Eric Kruseman.

Carl Poston won a round in the 55's.

Hugh Burris lost in the finals of the 65's.


  1. Forgot to mention that Alfredo Rivera, from Houston, won the men's 45 in straight sets.

  2. Mike Moss and Ross Persons (both of Houston) won the Men's 55 doubles in 3 sets over John Burrmann (Houston area) and Mike Vogl (formerly of Houston).
