I'm playing in a USTA Challenger tournament tomorrow!!

So I'm here in Aptos doing PR work for the $75,000 men's challenger here. As a semi-joke, the tournament director and I signed up for the doubles qualifying this morning.

Low and behold, we were only 1 of 3 teams to sign up! And what's even funnier is that we got a bye. We play the final round of doubles qualifying on center court tomorrow And if any team in the MD pulls out, we're the lucky losers. And because I'm in the tournament, they asked me to play the pro-am this afternoon...and paid $75 for it. Not an encouraging sign when you get out there and the "am" is better than the "pro."

Look for the draw tonight on stevegtennis.com. My name is McCarton Ackerman. We're gonna get killed obviously, but what a thrill!

Re: I'm playing in a USTA Challenger tournament tomorrow!!

Sounds fun.

What's a pro am?

What is stevegtennis??

Wasn't there a contestant on The Bachelorette named McCarton? I always thought that was such a strange name, and now there are at least two of you?!? (And it's a unisex name, at that.)
