Quick seniors update



4.5+ over 40 - the tight race that was anticipated is holding true to form.  Six matches in with five remaining there is no team that is undefeated so far.  Oak Creek/Sweeney and Brookhaven/Harllee are the only one loss teams with OC holding a slight line lead even though BH beat them head to head.  In third with two losses is Lifetime Fitness/Arcaria and Greenhill/Rossouw.  The big question is what happened to JCC/Reiman?  4-3 at the halfway mark isn't a typical JCC season.


4.5 is at the halfway mark and 4.0 is already done.  Is that right?  Seems so.  Advancing out of the two 4.0 flights are, in order of strength of record, Oak Creek/Ramasami (6-1, 27-8), Springpark/Walters (6-1, 26-9), Canyon Creek/Patterson (6-1, 21-14), and Huffhines/Clark (5-2, 24-11).  Oak Creek had a dominant season until the last match of the season against CC.  Having already wrapped up first place in their flight they lost a tight 2-3 match.  Does that match have a different conclusion at city playoffs?  This a much more competitive field than in years past but I'm not yet sure if that's because Dallas is weaker or there are just more good teams.


9.0 over 55 has Oak Creek/Sweeney clear of the field at 7-0 and having already beaten second place and one loss Brookhaven/Bartlett.  Gleneagles/Juhn sits alone with two losses and could still work their way back into the mix.


8.0 over 55 has a very similar look with Greenhill/Kayser sitting alone and undefeated (with a mighty impressive 17-1 line record to date), Springpark/Blesi alone with one loss, and Lifetime/Heflin alone at two losses.  Greenhill and Springpark square off the last match of the season so it could come right down to the wire.

  1. How come no results posted from Greenhill vs Rossouw in 4.5 from this past weekend?

  2. Just wanted to offer up my congrats to the Sisk Garland team so far this season with after 6 matches played has a stellar record of 4-26! Nice job of trying to lose as much as you can, if you guys really suck this bad (we all know what your trying to do) you should try a different sport! Just pathetic!

  3. You saw the changing of the guard at tri-level this year. Houston won it with a B team and they are gonna have an A+ team next year. Kelly is over the hill.

    1. That was no B Team. Soong Hay Tam is as good as you get at 4.5. Their 3.5s were holdovers from a National Championship team. Those 4.0s were stars.

    2. Sisk wins handily if Rajiv/Rivera, Luh/Clark plays. It was overkill at 3.5. Shame on Sisk. IT'S one thing to go to Nats, another to win it! Good luck

    3. If Tuttle plays instead of Kelly, they win. How do they lose?

    5. Tuttle has to play that match. I was SHOCKED to see him not playing when I showed up to the match Saturday morning. Come play for us.....

    2. Raja needs to play the 4.5 line next year

    3. If we can't win with Kelly and Davidson, he might as well play 4.5. The result wouldn't change.

    4. Raja and Kelly next year!

    5. We are talking Double Bagels with that pairing.

  6. I'd be willing to bet that Kelly skips tri-level next year or at least doesn't play the match against Freeman's guys.

  7. Kelly has already signed up to play on Raja's 4.5 team this spring. Expect those two to redefine play at 4.5.

    1. One will lose like he wants to get to 4.0 but won't while the other will try hard and still be 4.0.

    2. Good as Kelly is, he can't carry Raja.

  8. Should have played Teterude!

  9. This is a "Seniors" post...and all you guys can talk about is Kelly, Raja, Sisk and Tri-level. Get a life. 4.5+ 40+ is a competitive league this Winter, with some good matches. Except if you get on a court with Hai Thanh Nguyen...he will resort to a very bad call or two, to piss you off on purpose. It's part of his "game".
