Fox Meadow Invitational
3-24-2003
Fox Meadow Invitational Scarsdale, NY
Fox Meadow redifines what many would call a member-guest tournament.  With over 25 players being Nationally ranked this tournament should be titled a Pro-Am event.  Dave Ohlmuller is quoted as saying "It's harder to win the FMI than it is the Nationals."

The Fox Meadow Invitational (also dubbed the MCI - Mike Cochrane Invitational) has become known as the best member/guest (pro-am) in the country. This years draw was possible the strongest yet.

The QUARTER-FINALS were as follows:

Bob Considine/Mike Gillespie def. Andrew Canning/Rusty Wright
Brad Walsh/Jim Kaufman def. Eric Taylor/Chris Gambino
Chris Cochrane/Russ Jellinek def. Gary Cochrane/David Caldwell (3rd set t.
Jim Borho/David Ohlmuller def. Mike Cochrane/Brendan O'Rourke (3 sets)

SEMI-FINALS:

Walsh/Kaufman def.
Considine/Gillespie

Borho/Ohlmuller def. C. Cochrane/Jellinek

FINALS:
Borho/Ohlmuller def.
Walsh/Kaufman

David Ohlmuller and Jim Borho (#3 seed) defeated Brad "Punxsutawney Phil" Walsh and Jim Kaufman (#2 seed) in straight sets on a beautiful sunny, action-packed day. David Caldwell (future star of paddle) flew in from Baltimore to play in what he KNEW was the highlight of the paddle tourney. Ohlmuller is quoted as saying "It's harder to win the FMI than it is the Nationals." It seems the APTA should take a good look at making this tournament a 3.0 ranked tourney next year.

James Borho manned the bar-b-que all day (in between wins) and flipped amazing black angus burgers and cheeseburgers to the delight of all. The 70 degree day made for exciting paddle, sunburns, and a most refreshing COLD KEG OF BEER.

There were no sprained ankles, but there indeed was lots of FLESH shots as Jim Borho should have worn a flak-jacket (some say straight-jacket) but nonetheless, it made for exciting and fun paddle.

Thanks to all the guests who participated this year and we hope more can join the festivities next year.

List of Guests: - David Ohlmuller, Chris Gambino, Mike Gillepsie, Jim Kaufman, David Caldwell, Brad Easterbrook, Reed Newhall, Mark Ruppert, Chris Fitzgerald, John Sohmer, Brian Zevnik, Rusty Wright, Brendan O'Rourke, Chris Gilroy, Tim Heath, Jason Pinkernell, Rob Lebuhn, Russ Jellinek.
