A week of action at the ResortQuest Pro Women’s Open came to an end this past weekend, and it all happened just minutes from the sand.
Held at the Sea Colony Tennis resort, the latest USTA Pro Circuit event in Middle States featured players from around the world playing a fast-paced, high-level of tennis. In the end, it was Vojislava Lukic, a 25-year-old native of Serbia, who came out on top with the title.
Lukic took the title by defeating recent North Carolina grad Sanaz Marand, who was seeking her first-ever ITF singles title. Lukic’s win earned her an ITF title for the first time since 2007 and her fifth overall.
Marand did not leave the tournament empty-handed, though, as she and partner Jacqueline Cako defeated Ukrainian Anastasia Kharchenko and Russian Nika Kukharchuk, 6-1, 6-2, in the doubles championship. It was Cako’s third ITF doubles crown, and Marand’s fourth.
Middle States held USTA Member Appreciation Day in conjunction with the tournament’s semifinals on Saturday afternoon. USTA members in attendance received a gift bag and had a chance to learn more about play and volunteer opportunities within the USTA.
