Re: Charleston R1 C.Beck/Navarro d. Ostapenko/Jurak 1-6 6-3 13-11
Yes, losing to a pair of local high school players is shameful. The vets won the first set easily 6-1 and led 3-1. After that, they were terrible. Ostapenko hit the volley into the net on most poaches. The youngster repeatedly returned serve right at the net person and neither vet could handle most of the time. You would think when vets got ahead 10-9 and 11-10 in the tiebreaker, the nerves would get to the youngsters. But they shockingly were the ones who played with poise. Ostapenko and Jurak should be relegated to the ITF challengers circuit for such a bad performance, a la English soccer.
