Short Hills Invitational
02-08-2009
Short Hills Men

Short Hills, NJ
When your partner is unavailable for a tournament, sometimes you stay home as well. Sometimes you pair up with someone else for the event. Seldom do things work out as well as they did this weekend for Anthony Cosimano and David Caldwell, who paired for the first time and defeated a strong field to win the Short Hills Invitational Men's Ranking tournament. With their victory in the Women's Ranking tournament, Cynthia Dardis and Amy Shay took over the top ranking.

    Women's B Draw      Men's 95+ Draw      Women's Ranking Draw      Men's Ranking Draw      Men's B Draw

~Reported by Marjorie Hodson
The weekend started with the Women's B tournament and the Men's 95+ (combined ages) tournaments on Friday. In a change from the norm, the weather was clear and there was no need for multiple sets of dry clothing. While the men's event finished on Friday, with Scott & Scott Estes prevailing over Ed Gartner & Paul Wishnoff, the women's main draw final was held over until Sunday. Trish Griggs & Amy Rhinelander defeated sisters Erin Cacciabaudo & Fay Lonsinger to claim the B title.

Saturday saw play in the Men's and Women's Ranking tournaments and the Men's B and 115+ (combined ages) tournaments.

The Men's B tournament was won by Mike & Joe FitzSimons, who topped #1 seeds Jamie Egbert & Peter Rooney in the finals.

The Men's 115 tournament featured morning round robin play and afternoon bracket play. Scott Estes & Mike Palmer defeated Steve Griggs & Ivan Harlow for first place.

The Women's Ranking tournament featured the reunion of Sally Cottingham & Chris Sheldon, who re-united to defend their title. Cynthis Dardis & Amy Shay spoiled their party with a 2-6, 6-4, 6-3 come-from-behind victory.

The Men's draw featured as deep a field as has been seen this year... and first-time-teammates David Caldwell & Anthony Cosimano showed their versatility by defeating them all, topping Mike Cochrane & Scott Estes in the finals 6-4, 5-7, 6-0. A little rain shower threatened to alter play, but didn't last long enough to derail the eventual champs.

Another great event by the Short Hills crew and staff. Special thanks to Joseph Drouhin and Domaine Drouhin for their sponsorship!
