Extremely proud of all 20 players that represented the GTP program this weekend in the USTA southern level 1A championship. Many great performances but our standout performances go to Andrew & James Delgado, Boyeni Keenan & Brianna Baldi. In the boys 14s singles James & Boyeni made it an all GTP final with James coming out as the champion with a 6-3, 6-3 victory over Boyeni. James went on to win the boys 14s doubles as well as picking up the sportsmanship award. Both players playing some high level, hard hitting tennis throughout the weekend. His brother Andrew Delgado also had a great tournament in the boys 12s division by sweeping the singles and doubles title by playing some exceptional tennis with great energy & passion. Winning the match with a Boris Becker forehand volley dive winner!! Not bad for an 11 year old!
In the girls 12s Brianna Baldi showed what a great fighter & grit she possesses. Brianna made all the way to the final before coming short to a stiff opponent from Georgia. Again another 11 year old showing quality characteristics of what it’s going to take to becoming a champion. Brianna then went on to team up with fellow GTP teammate Reagan Harris in the girls 12s doubles. The duo unseeded made all the way to the finals before losing 8-2, but both taking out some very strong team along the way. Very impressed with all our GTP players in how well they handled all the challenges and obstacles they faced. The overcame these adversities with great professionalism & toughness and represented their families, the GTP program, coaches & themselves to the highest level. Well done all!!
