    Congrats to Laura S and Peter I for a close-fought match on court #1 .  The finalists and semi-finalists were evenly matched as the scores reflect.  The day was slightly overcast, warm but not as hot as the tennis was.  Culinary treats reflected an ability to prepare homemade authentic British breakfast provisions including scones, sausage rolls, strawberries and cream and more, thank you to Felicity and Sam !


    Next up is NY Open which we hope includes authentic NY bagels and more!

    It did not rain...  

    There were many close matches on this seasonably warm day. In particular the MXD teams were closely matched, with several tiebreakers and a number of come-from-behind winners. The French menu of jus d'orange, croissant, patisserie sandwiches, escargots, salad de fruits and macarons francaise was enjoyed by all under the large tent after the competition.

    Pickles were sweet, toasted bagels and creme cheese tasted great, and the organic deli sandwiches were good too.  Chocolate chip cookies appeared for desert. In honor of tourney namesake "NY Open" a big apple was served. And in honor of the chef and creator of these tasty tournament menus over the past 5-years, an award was presented by Marla to Gretchen H.  Enthusiastic, competitive tennis was also played on this wintery day. Winners were Rebecca W and Ravi P and Finalists were Chany S and Peter I.  Consolation was won by Tess B & Eric B.

    An unexpectedly warm fall morning in Palo Alto greeted 20 tournament players who proceeded to play a competitive 3 sets of tennis and then feast on scones, strawberries and creme, fruit and sandwiches.  Repeat Wimbly winners Felicity and Sam showed continued improvement as they outshone the mixed doubles field once again.  Mens singles was dominated by Peter I, who then rode off on his motorcycle (see pic).
