USTA Mixed Doubles Atlanta City Championships tomorrow night!

Many from our 2011 USTA Georgia State Champion Mixed Doubles 7.0 team will be playing for a chance to qualify for the 2012 Georgia State Championships (next summer) tomorrow night, at the Dekalb Tennis Center in Decatur. Because of our success this summer, our team is somewhat different; a couple players’ ratings were bumped up in August.

I feel a little bit disconnected from this team given that I played just twice this fall - plus once (in the quarterfinals) in the city championships tournament - which ends tomorrow night. Given the changes to our team, my partner – with whom I am undefeated over the past two seasons in 5 matches (including one in the Georgia State tournament) without dropping a set – has been assigned a new partner of late, and they’ve won both of their two matches together.

Because a couple of our current players’ ratings were bumped up this month, 2012 will be quite different from 2011; Friday night’s match will give us a chance to keep the vast majority of this past year’s team together for one last hurrah next August in Augusta.

Wish us luck!
