Diane Straus Tucker and Muffin Slonaker Capture 60+ Championship
February 25, 2012
Teaming up with a new partner and facing a very determined pairing of Debbie Cooper and Judy Saydah, Diane Straus Tucker (last year's champion) and Muffin Slonaker (winner in 2010) eked out a victory with a score of 5-7, 7-5,6-4.
For the record books, this was Tucker’s 22nd APTA title and Slonaker’s 4th title. Cooper and Saydah were more than worthy opponents for the number one seeds with their pinpoint lobs and well-timed drives. The dicey weather of off-and-on rain showers made returning the ball at times problematic.
Kudos go to Tournament Director Katie Bliss for all her hard work.
Congratulations to all the winners and finalists and a
great big thank you to all participating teams!
