1 Singles-Dalton Goodwin(W)6-2(W)6-4 in straight sets to win his second match in a row!! Dalton was able to win his first set convincingly and was in a little "funk" and was in a 4-3 hole in the second set. I told Dalton "Dalton don't get down on yourself after the last game.Just put that one behind you and play under control and stay calm and run down every shot to keep the points alive. Dalton not only kept points alive but made some unbelievable "gets" on shots running off the side of the court as well as returning lob after lob running backwards and still hitting it back into his opponents court to frustrate him thinking he had the point won but Dalton won 3 straight games and won 6-4 and had several ground stroke clean winners with some extra "zip on" that his opponent simply couldn't get to in time to get a racket on!! Great Job Dalton!!
2 Singles-Reid Reimink(W)6-1(W)6-0-Reid focused on the task at hand and played like a "cool 🥒 cucumber" winning very decisively in this one with great ball control and great ball placement using the whole court and forcing his opponent to run all over the court and Reid simply wore him "out" like a pair of worn out tennis shoes that needed to be replaced.
3 Singles-Traiden Bethke(W)8-2 with ad scoring in proset #1 versus his first Jenison opponent which featured several very long rallies with some rallies going 12-15 shots.Traiden is like the Energizer Bunny who NEVER quits hustling on every single point!! In match #2 Traiden won AGAIN 8-5!! and again outlasted and out executed his opponent with better racket control and forcing his opponent to return way more shots than he wanted to!! Both of his opponents were very solid according to the Jenison coach but Traiden wasn't intimidated one bit and just did what he does best WIN!! Great Job Traiden!! Keep up the great work!!
1 Doubles-Mason Jiang Kong and Nolan Zink(W)6-1(W)6-0-These two guys are doing awesome as partners and their talent level definitely showed again in this one outhustling their opponents getting back more return shots on "sheer effort" that got back to them but putting their shots in spots neither of those two could get a racket on since they were caught flat footed and out of position several times.Great Job Mason and Nolan!!
2 Doubles-Brady Bosma and Joe Mireles(W)6-3(W)6-1-Brady and Joe pick up another "W" for WO playing very well together as partners with great communication and court awareness and have a "knack" on how to attack their opponents weak areas and rack up a lot of winning points quickly doing so.
3 Doubles-Jackson Kuyers and Andrew Van Dyke(W)6-3(W)6-4-Jackson and Andrew add another "W" for WO in this one and keep their winning streak alive.This match was struggling to watch at times because they were in a "mini funk" but I calmed the two down and just said "Just focus on controlling your shots,keep the ball in play and outshoot them on your rallies and put away your net points with authority.That they did.The "mini funk" quickly became an afterthought and they got the 6th game won in set 2 to "shut the door"on this one!! Great job Jackson and Andrew!!
4 Doubles-Kevin Maas and Joey Rakipi(W)8-0 in their first match and (W)8-0 in their second match-Kevin and Joey executed their serves and shots to perfection in both contests and "blew out" the candles before anyone had a chance to even say Happy Birthday!! Great job Kevin and Joey adding 2 more "W"s as partners!!
5 Doubles-Nash Bosma and Evan Janetzke(L)8-7 in a "hold on to the edge of your seat" nerve wracking finish that was a heart breaking finish where Jenison simply made a few more clean winners on us on a very exciting match!! However Nash and Evan bounced back with sheer determination not wanting to lose again and won 8-4 in their second match and made their ride back home much more satisfying!! Great job Nash and Evan!!
6 Doubles-Roman Monhollon and Cooper Terpstra(L)8-5 and (W)8-0-Roman and Cooper struggled in their first match and "just had one of those days" falling 8-5 but got back off the mat and had the knockout punch mentality and won BIG in their second match 8-0 to get a big "W" belt back on em again!!
7 Doubles-Liam Herweyer and Brody Ruby (W)8-7 in the THRILLER match of the day being shocked back to life after looking "flat as a pancake"and "dead in the water" trailing 6-3.I simply told them to focus on keeping every point in play and not double faulting and giving away careless points.They took it to heart and all of a sudden points started falling their way one after the other and another after another.The scorecard went from 3-6 to a 7-7 tie and in sudden death Brody executed his serves to perfection in sudden death and Liam returned shot after shot and so did Brody. They made no mistakes in the final game and we WON!!! Talk about Big Smiles and chest pumps and a big loud YES!!! by both of them out of sheer excitement!!! It was a beautiful sight to see!! Great job Liam and Brody!!!
