2018 Indy Men's OpenFull Draw on Live Scoring

A record 64 teams participated in the Indianapolis Open/90+ Tournament this weekend. Without a doubt, the Open draw featured the deepest talent we've ever had! Once again, Ricky Heath and Larry Martin won the 90+ tournament. They survived a close three-setter in the semis against Ryan Floth and Rusty Schubert, and went on to a straight set win over the father/son team of William and George Higgins in the finals.

In the Open draw, the top four seeds made it to the semis, with many struggling in the morning rain. Rob Bakker/Tyler Fraser won a close straight-setter over Brian Compton/Graham McNerney, while Ryan Baxter/Ricky Heath survived a three-setter over the exciting new team of Sven Burus/Roman Stoisavljevic. The final lasted two and a half hours with Baxter/Heath prevailing 7-5 in the third! This was Baxter/Heath’s third consecutive win in Indy and definitely the closest and most exciting!

Good luck to all in two weeks at Nationals!
