Ed Krass’ One-On-One Doubles arrived on Long Island for a tournament at the Hither Hills Racquet Club in Amagansett, where top competitors, including those with ATP rankings and points, Division I college players and top-ranked juniors, squared off in this unique format.
“I thought we had a very strong field of players with ATP rankings and points, mixed in with former Division 1 College players, highly ranked juniors and one highly ranked senior,” said Krass, founder of One-On-One Doubles. “Our host club, The Hither Hills Racquet Club, did a fantastic job of hosting the event with a big barbeque for the players and all the guests/fans who attended.”
As the tournament advanced into the semifinals, Max Schnur defeated Harrison Adams 6-5(10-6) to secure his spot in the finals, while Gary Kushnirovich beat Guillerme Demedeiros 6-2 in his semifinal.
In the finals, it was Kushnirovich who walked away with the title as he notched a 6-3 victor over Schnur.
“With $2000 in Prize money, the players showcased their terrific serve and volley skills to the appreciative crowd in attendance,” Krass added. “I want to thank Kathyrn and Doug Degroot for their sponsorship and hosting. They were both amazing hosts.
I look forward to doing more of a tour of events next summer in the Hamptons!”
