1 Singles-Dalton Goodwin(L)6-3(W)7-6(7-2)in 7 Point Tie Breaker(W)10-4 in 3rd Set Super Tie Breaker-After a slow start in set one where Dalton just struggled and his shots just weren’t going his way, he fought back and refused to go down in defeat twice in a row to his opponent. He fought back and got his swagger back, fending off shot after shot, and had a great combination of some aces, hard cross court winners, some overhead slam winners at the net, and some sheer out hustle plays and forced a ten point Super Tie Breaker and after jumping to an early lead Dalton made sure he never gave his lead up and got the tenth point first to secure a very hard earned victory in one of his best wins he’s had all year especially with this one since he had to come from behind to win this one!! Great Job Dalton!!
