Young Gains Louisville Finals

October 13, 2008 08:00 AM

It was payback time for Robert Kendrick who defeated Donald Young of Atlanta 6-1, 6-1 to take the $50,000 Ford Tennis Championships in Lousville, Ky. on Sunday, Nov. 2. Last month, Young steamrolled over Kendrick to win the $50,000 Swanston Challenger in Sacramento, Calif. 6-4, 6-1.

Former Georgia Bulldog John Isner withdrew from the Louisville tournament with a back injury.

In the doubles final, Prakash Amritraj and Jesse Levine defeated Frank Dancevic and Dusan Vemic 6-3, 7-6(10).

Lindsay Lee-Waters of Dunwoody, Ga. teamed up with Hungarian Melinda Czink to take the $50,000 Dick’s Sporting Goods Presents the Pittsburgh Women’s Challenger with a straight-set victory over Abigail Spears/Raquel Kops-Jones 6-2, 7-5. Lee-Waters also emerged from the singles qualies before losing to Georgie Stoop in the quarterfinals.

In other men’s action, John Isner of Greensboro, N.C. and Rajeev Ram were defeated in The Swanston Challenger’s doubles final by brothers Dann and Brian Battistone 1-6, 6-3, [10-4]. Atlanta’s Scoville Jenkins was one of Young’s victims in the singles competition as he fell in the quarterfinals 6-1, 6-4.
