2013 APTA 

Men's Senior Nationals

45+/55+/65+

March 1-3, 2013

Men's 45s

Under perfect paddle conditions of cloudy skies, temperatures in the 30s and a little bit of snow, the draw played out as expected as the top 4 seeds faced off in the semis.  In the first semi, Top seed, Scott Bonduarant and Mark Johnson of Chicago defeated David Lowe and Eric Miller of Cleveland.  In the seconds semi, Mike Atkinson and John Milbank of New Jersey defeated local favorites Joe Leytze and Dan Mott.  The finals features some spetacular athleticism and great shot making as Bondurant and Johnson prevailed to capture the championship.

 

Men's 55s

The Men's 55+ tournament featured some of the most exciting matches of the weekend.  An unpredictable draw played out as two local Cincinnati teams taking very different paths, ended up facing off in the finals.  In the top half of the draw, Vince Prop and Brian Mitchell advanced to the finals without losing a set.  In the bottom half of the draw, Tony Hobson and John White saved three straight match points in their quarterfinal match against John McMillin (Garden City, NY) and Will Higgins (Indianapolis) ultimately prevailing 2-6, 6-2, 7-6.  They then had to turn around and defeat 2nd seeded Scott Pecor (Milwaukee) and Mike (Sullivan) in another 3-set match, 3-6, 6-4, 7-5.  In the fianls, playing at his home club, Prop and his partner Mitchell were able ride the adrenaline and defeat Hobson and White for a hard fought 7-5, 6-2 victory. 

 

Men’s 65s

The Men’s 65+ tournament featured a number of perennial tour players matched up in the finals.  J. Stanley and Alan Graham from Chicago upset #2 seed Jim Bishop (Geneva, IL) and Mike Hanna (Fairport, NY) to reach the finals against #1 seed Scott Estes, Sr. (Chatham, NJ) and Doug Barrow (Roslyn Heights, NY).  In a hard fought match, Estes and Barrow prevailed 6-2, 6-2.
