The TK ladies varsity tennis team won their third 5-3 match of the year. Singes players dominated the South Christian players at the first three flights losing only 5 games in three matches. We still needed a split in the doubles matches to get the team win.
Another close match went down to the last two matches on the courts. The Trojans and the Sailors were facing the same team situation. We both teams needed one of the two matches remaining for a tie, or both matches to get a team win. Third and fourth doubles would determine outcome of the match.
Our third doubles team was behind 5-1 in the first set when they started a long comeback, winning 12 of the next 15 games to clinch the teams 4th point with a 7-6 (7), 6-2 win.
With the team score 4-3 the Trojans needed a fourth doubles win to secure the team win.
Our fourth doubles team started a little slow and lost the first set in a tie break. They followed that up with a second set win (6-4). In the final set the Trojans jumped out to a 5-3 lead. The final game was very long with the Trojans getting five match points before clinching the team win, 6-3 in the third and deciding set.
