Big congratulations go to Ashli MacInnis, back-to-back champion of the women’s B singles competition! Unfortunately, the men’s B singles finals competition between John Hennessy and Arun Bhasin was rain-delayed, and will be completed Saturday, Aug. 27, beginning at 12:30 p.m.
Ashli beat Isabel Gerety in a fiercely fought final match, with a score of 6-4 and 7-6! And that was after playing a semi-final contest the previous day that went on for more than three hours in boiling heat!
If you watched this year’s final match and felt like you were experiencing deja vu, you can’t be blamed. Last year’s women’s B singles competition also saw Ashli and Isabel face off in the finals, with Ashli taking the win then, too.
But shed no tears for Isabel! She has won both the ladies and mixed B doubles tournaments this season, along with partners Maria Gatzios and Craig Amos, respectively!
