Westchester Country Day Recap 4 11 2022 
Senior Ben Williams led the Fury Boys’ Varsity Tennis Team to an 8-1 victory over Westchester Country Day School at The Williams Tennis Center. Ben played the toughest opponent of the season today and dropped too many close points to pull out his match at #1 singles. Both boys in this match hit tremendous winners with their forehands and both served big first serves. Today, Ben just couldn’t hold on to leads he had established on his return games to get the needed breaks of serve to win this match. 

Alan Trbonja played some excellent tennis today and showed lots of mental toughness as he defeated a solid player 6-1, 6-3 at #2 singles. His match was filled with fun tennis as both boys spent lots of time running down wide balls from one side of the court to the other. Hats off to Alan for scoring a solid victory that looked a lot tougher than the final score.  

Max Trbonja took the opposite approach from Alan in his match as he cruised to a 6-0, 6-0 victory at #3 singles. Max played steady, aggressive tennis and hit well throughout his contest. His forehand just proved to be too much for his opponent as he ripped balls at will with his tremendous forehand groundstrokes. His serves were also very solid today. 

Lucas Rocha Lima got the job done the hard way by hitting lots of easy approach shots to his opponent and rushed in to the net, only to be lobbed, which caused him to have to scramble back to the baseline and retrieve his opponent’s balls. This was quite an entertaining match as both players prodded each other for weaknesses. Lucas was just too tough mentally on this day and closed out his match 6-1, 6-0. 

Dylan Gendrachi played within his skill set and focused on keeping the ball in the court more than his opponent. He was also able to draw errors from his opponent when needed to close out his match 6-0, 6-1. Dylan continues to improve his serve and groundstrokes and it showed in his match today. 

Nathan Jao stepped in to play at #6 singles for us in his first ever varsity match. At 4-4, he managed to put aside his nervousness and promptly closed out his match 6-4, 6-2. This Fury senior got tough mentally at the right time and used his improved serve and groundstrokes well to close out his match. 

We played well on all three doubles courts. Kendrick and Hank won 8-2 against a good team on court #1. They closed out their match 8-2. This was a good match for these two players and their opponents let them know they need to improve on return of serve and closing off their alley at the net. Ben and Max at #2 controlled their court from start to finish, as did, Alan and Lucas. Both courts won 8-0 and 8-1 respectively.
