4.5-Open Singles Champions-Northbrook
Northbrook’s 4.5-Open Singles team somehow pulled out a win against North Shore. Three of the matches went to a 3rd set tie-breaker. On court 4, Sue Teper (NRC) releasing some of the stress of moving to a new home, sliced and diced her way to a straight set victory over Youngran Chung (NSRC). On court 3, Denise Mullett (NSRC) battled it out with Liesel Jankelowitz. Liesel was down in the 1st set 2-5 before coming back to win the 1st set 7-5, only to let the 2nd set slip away 6-3. The 3rd set tie-breaker went to Denise 10-4. Terri Gordon (NRC) and Lisa Musgrave (NSRC) had never played each other in singles before. Lisa won the 1st set 6-4 and was cruising in the 2nd set 5-2 when something woke up in Terri. She turned the set around and won the set 7-5. It was time for a match tie-breaker reset. Lisa nearly had it won at 9-7 but Terri turned it around again to win 11-9 in the match tie-breaker. WOW! On court 1, Becky Moffatt (NSRC) was in control of the 1st set against Nives Horacek (NRC). Then the tide turned and it was Nives who was in control of the 2nd set and the match tie-breaker. Northbrook won 3-1. This is a three-peat for Northbrook who won in 2015 and 2016.
