The Koser Jewelers Tennis Challenge is a $25,000 Pro Circuit tournament that takes place at Hempfield Area Recreation Commission every August. With the timing of the tournament being only weeks before the US Open, high level players enter the draw hoping to get some extra competitive play before entering qualifying of the US Open.
Women’s doubles was first, with Ivana Jorovic (SRB) and Jessica Moore (AUS) taking on Americans Brynn Boren and Nadja Gilchrist. Jorovic and Moore ended up taking that match 6-1, 6-3.
Women’s singles went second, in what turned out to be an exciting final match. Robin Anderson, a standout star at UCLA, faced 6’4″ Naomi Broady of Great Britain. After 2 hours and 20 minutes, Broady finally won the match 4-6, 6-4, 7-6 (7-5).
Also happening on Sunday was USTA Member Appreciation Day. USTA Members were invited to stop by the Middle States booth to receive a free gift.
