Players at the ResortQuest Pro Women’s Open battled through the rain this past weekend as the week-long tournament came to an end.
Held at Sea Colony Tennis Club in Bethany Beach, Del., the latest USTA Pro Circuit event in Middle States featured players from around the world playing fast-paced, high-level tennis. The tournament experienced two rain delays on Saturday during the doubles final and the singles semifinals.
After the rain delay, the third-seeded American duo of Sophie Chang and Andie K. Daniell came out on top over the Australian team of Ellen Perez and Belinda Woolcock in the doubles final.
The singles’ victory was claimed by fifth seed Sonja Molnar, a 25-year-old from Canada who took down American Alexa Graham with an end score of 6-1, 7-5. Down 1-5 in the second set, Graham battled hard and lost with a close second set score of 7-5. This tournament was Molnar’s first Pro Circuit in the United States.
The USTA helped sponsor the event which draws nationally and internationally ranked women tennis players in search of higher world rankings and a share of the event’s $10,000 in prize money.
The ResortQuest Pro Women’s Open was the first of three Pro Circuit events that will be held in Middle States this year.
