Lee-Waters Triumphs In $50,000 Virginia Tournament

May 4, 2009 05:18 PM

She may be the mother of two and 31 years old but Lindsay Lee-Waters continues to prove she’s a tennis player on the rise.

The Dunwoody, Ga. resident defeated Ekaterina Bychkova to win the Boyd Tinsley USTA Women’s $50,000 Pro Tennis Championships in Charlottesville, Va. Sunday.

While the tournament was played on clay courts, a Sunday rainstorm moved the final indoors. There, playing on a hard court, Lee-Waters took down the fourth seed in a 6-3, 7-5 at the Boar’s Head Sports Club.

Lee-Waters triumphed over top-seeded Alexa Glatch on Friday and No. 3 seed Carly Gullickson on Saturday. She is now ranked No. 227 on the Sony Wricsson WTA Tour Rankings.

In March, she reached at the Tangipahoa Tourism/Loeb Law Firm 25k Tennis Classic semifinals at the Oak Knoll Country Club in Hammond, La. , where she lost to the eventual winner. She defeated former world No. 4 Kimko Date Krumm of Japan in the quarterfinals 6-2, 6-2.

Lee-Waters has moved up in the rankings in the last three years after having ended 2006 ranked No. 612.
