Some cool stuff that happened in 2014

I still miss Steve a lot, there are no words to describe how much he loved tennis and how good he was at writing about it.

This post is of course dedicated ho him.

NCAA doubles win back to back Challenger titles

Reese/Libietis (Vols seniors) won Knoxville Challenger.

“We know how to win,” Reese said. “We know what each other is good at. Our chemistry is so good on the court, we know where we’re going to be at all times. That’s so vital. We’ve been coached really well.”

“We’ve been playing on our serves extremely well,” Libietis said. “We were executing very well. Same as in college in the NCAAs and All-Americans. We’re holding serve and that gives us confidence for the breaks. We can go for it on the returns because we know we’re going to hold.”

Kopinski/Guignon (Illini seniors) won Champaign Challenger.

“It was a special atmosphere for us,” Tim Kopinski said. “Everyone was just getting behind us every point win or lose. It was a lot of fun for us, lifting us up the whole time.”
