Hingis, Kastles too much for Lobsters

(Continued)

Hingis was most definitely on her game last night, defeating the Lobsters’ Jill Craybas 5-2 in women’s singles. She also paired with teammate Anastasia Rodionova, as the duo swept Craybas and Katalin Marosi 5-0 in women’s doubles.

The Lobsters’ (4-7) Amir Weintraub won the first match of the evening, topping Bobby Reynolds, 5-4 in men’s singles, while Weintraub and partner Eric Butorac dominated at men’s doubles, 5-2.

The match of the night came down to mixed doubles. Butorac/Marosi and Hingis/Frederik Nielsen went head to head to determine the night’s winner. Though the Kastles were up heading into the match 16-12, Butorac, who is a doubles master, and Marosi won the match 5-2— which meant it would head into overtime.

Butorac and Marosi once again took the match to tie the score at 18 all. In the end it was Hingis and Nielsen who came out on top, as they won the super tie breaker 7-3.

“It was nerve-racking playing that last set,” explained Hingis. “We clicked in the tie breaker, which was just good timing.”
