Sunday morning saw us starting the day tied with St. Pete at two wins and one loss; but with the slight edge in individual matches won. So they played Jacksonville first – and beat them two courts out of three. Which meant that we would play Jacksonville second and have to beat them by at least the same score.
Based on what we saw of Jacksonville’s lineup, we put Spike/Ali on court #1, Dick/Matt on court #2, and Tom/me on court #3.
Spike/Ali made quick work of their match at 6-2, 6-3; but our other two courts were much more competitive.
Dick/Matt were down a break in the first set, with Jacksonville serving at 5-4; but they were able to break-hold-break to take the first set 7-5.
Then on both our courts we took 5-2 leads and had simultaneous match points! Dick/Matt won theirs first, clinching the victory. While Tom and I took another game to make the three-match sweep, with a 6-1, 6-3 (nearly two hour) victory.
