In an exciting doubles final, USTA Southern players Julie Ditty and Carly Gullickson battled back to win the second set and match tiebreak to take the doubles title at the Gwinnett Sports Commission Women’s 50K Tennis Classic. Ditty, of Ashland, Ky., and Gullickson, of Brentwood, Tenn., defeated Yayuk Basuki and Romana Tedjakusuma of Indonesia, 3-6, 6-4 [12-10].

In the singles final, Shenay Perry defeated last year’s winner Ditty, 6-1, 6-3. Perry, who was ranked in the top 50 in the world at one time, continues her successfully comeback from knee surgery.

More than 60 professional women tennis players will compete from October 12-19 at the Pro Circuit event. Each participant will be competing for a portion of the $50,000 prize purse. A local charity, the Gwinnett Tennis Foundation, will benefit from the week-long activities. The Gwinnett Tennis Foundation is a gateway for junior tennis players to compete and train for tennis at any level with a mission to provide opportunities in tennis for the top ranked players, disabled and physically challenged juniors that reside in Gwinnett County.

Presented by the Gwinnett Sports Commission, this eight day event will feature 32 women competing in the qualifying event with the top four players moving on to compete in the main draw of 32. A doubles qualifying event with 16 teams will also take place, with the top 2 teams making the main draw.
