2011 APTA Men's 50+ Nationals FinalistsAPTA Men's 50+ Nationals

Under sunny skies Scott Bondurant (Winnetka, IL) with a different partner Bill Fiedler (Chicago, IL) successfully defended his 50+ national championship. Scott had won the two previous year with APTA President Tim McAvoy. Bondurant’s forehand and Fiedler’s blitzing were the difference makers in their two set win over Fritz Odenbach (Rochester, NY) and Rusty Wright (Pelham, NY). The win for the Illinois duo avenged their loss to the New York players in the 2006 45+ title match. In the first set Bondurant and Fiedler went up a break but Odenbach and Wright fought back and took it to a tie breaker. The second set was hard fought but Bondurant and Fiedler kept the foot on the pedal and won 7-6, 6-1.

In the 2011 APTA Men’s 60+ National Championship defending champions Steve Baird (Purchase, NY) and Scott Estes (Chatham, NJ) faced the unseeded team of John Adams (Newtown Square, PA) and Burke Hayes (Chevy Chase, MD). Burke and Hayes while unseeded were not without a pedigree of their own having won the 55+ in 2007.  Baird and Estes made their way through the draw fairly easily while Adams and Hayes had two tough three setters prior to the finals.  The score of the final,  7-6, 7-5 was illustrative of the saying “get the ball back one more time than your opponent.”  The match was so close that it was truly a matter of Adams and Hayes getting the ball back one more time than their opponents.

Roy Anderson (Rowayton, CT) and Joe Holmes (Norwalk, CT) were looking for double gold when they took on Mike Hanna (Fairport, NY) and Mike O’Donnell in the 2011 APTA Men’s 70+ National Championship at Fox Meadow. Anderson and Holmes had won the 145’s two days before and were two time defending champions in the 70+.  O’Donnell was looking for his double gold as well, having taken the 65+ title earlier this year. The sunny skies provided comfort to the spectators who were treated to a great three set match. The first set went to Anderson/Holmes who looked like they would take the title easily.  Hanna/O’Donnell turned the momentum around in the second set and clinched it in a tight tense battle in the third. The final score was 3-6, 6-2, 7-6 (6).
