USTA Florida Tennis on Campus IBIS Open

February 7, 2008 05:06 PM

The University of Miami Tennis Club hosted the USTA Florida Tennis on Campus IBIS Open, January 26-27th at Crandon Park in Key Biscayne.  Club President Scott Weinreb welcomed over 70 players from 7 different schools (including the University of Denver) who traveled to Miami to prove their skills in a singles tournament setup.   The tournament had a main draw as well as a full feed-in consolation bracket. 

The first two rounds of play consisted of an 8 game pro-set while the proceeding rounds of play were regular two out of three sets with a super tiebreaker for the third set.  Unfortunately, on Sunday morning the format had to be changed back to 8 game pro-sets due to bad weather and the Miami Marathon.  However; weather and traffic issues were quickly forgotten during the men’s and women’s finals on center court. 

Scott Runda from the University of Florida defeated Mike O’Rourke from the University of South Florida, 6-0, 6-3.  On the women’s side, Inna Chepurnaya from University of South Florida defeated Simone Berger from the University of Miami 6-1, 6-1.  Chris Whitfield from Florida International University defeated Grant Murphy from University of South Florida in the men’s consolation finals and Eva Ryder from University of Miami defeated Sofia Montalvo from University of Miami in the women’s consolation finals.         

The final 2007-2008 College Championship Series event, The Bull Run, will take place at the University of South Florida, February 15-16.  Format of play is World Team Tennis.  Online registration is available!
