Motevassel Wins USTA National 40 Hard Court Championships

La Jolla, Calif. – (December 2, 2012) – Top-seeded Oren Motevassel successfully defended his singles title at the USTA National 40 Hard Court Championships as he defeated fourth-seeded Martin Barba of Carlsbad, Calif., 6-4, 6-2, in the final at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club.

 

Motevassel, a resident of Rancho Mirage, Calif., was playing in his third straight National 40 Hard Court men’s singles final. He was awarded a USTA gold ball following his victory.

 

The championship final, which featured two former competitors on the ATP World Tour, began with three straight service breaks as Motevassel took a 2-1 lead over Barba, who had won the tournament singles title in 2008.

 

Barba attempted to slow down the pace of the match and draw Motevassel to the net, but Motevassel played a patient baseline game and waited for the right opportunity to hit winners.

 

Motevassel proceeded to take control as he dropped only five points in his next four service games to win the first set in 49 minutes.

 

In the second set, Motevassel took a 4-1 lead and extended it to 5-2 when Barba punched a forehand volley as he served at 15-40 in the seventh game. Motevassel then easily held serve in the next game to wrap up his second straight championship in exactly one hour and 30 minutes.

 

“It feels great. It was a good match. Martin played pretty well. He’s a good player and a good competitor,” Motevassel said following the match. “We go way back. We know each other for 25 years. It was great to play him again. We always have fun matches.”

 

As he spoke about his tournament run this past week, Motevassel said, “It’s always fun to come here. This (event) is on my calendar all year long. It’s at the top of my list. I’ll come back as long as I’m still fit and playing well.”

 

In other tournament action, second-seeded Brett Joelson and Brian Joelson of Beaverton, Ore. defeated third-seeded Brett Morse-Karzen and Jerry Morse-Karzen of Wilmette, Ill., 6-2, 6-4, to win their ninth USTA Father and Son National Hard Court Championship in the last ten years.

McBride Captures USTA National 40 Hard Court Championships

 

(December 1, 2012) La Jolla, Calif.  – Top-seeded Dina McBride of Valencia, Calif., erased the memory of last year’s final, as she defeated second-seeded Ros Nideffer of San Diego (Rancho Bernardo), 7-5, 6-2, to win the women’s singles title at the USTA National 40 Hard Court Championships.

 

McBride, a former collegiate tennis star at the University of San Diego, reached the women’s singles final a year ago, but had to retire early in the match as she suffered a torn Achilles tendon.

 

Despite playing only one set of singles during her recovery this past year, McBride entered the tournament and made an incredible run to the title this week at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club.

 

Playing under bright, sunny skies, McBride trailed Nideffer 4-5 as she served to stay in the first set. After holding serve to tie the score at 5-5, the 52-year-old Nideffer, a former touring tennis professional, opened the 11th game with a doubles fault and four points later, McBride broke serve to lead 6-5.

 

McBride went on to serve out the set as she fought off a break point and won a hard-fought 14-point game. She then jumped out to a 4-1 second-set lead and went on to serve out the match at 5-2 to win the title.

 

“I was down 4-5 (in the first set) and came back and won that set. That was a big turning point in the match. I think she (Nideffer) had a little bit of a letdown,” McBride said.

 

“Even being up 5-2, matches can turn on a dime. I was ready to go the distance. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy,” said McBride. “I was elated when that (final) ball went out. It’s unbelievable. I’m so excited and happy,”

 

As she thanked Tournament Director Bill Kellogg and spectators following the match, an emotional McBride dedicated her victory to her father who could not attend due to illness.

 

In the men’s singles semifinals, defending champion and top-seed Oren Motevassel of Rancho Mirage, Calif., advanced to his third straight National 40 Hard Court men’s singles final as he eliminated third-seeded Jeff Greenwald of Anselmo, Calif., 1-6, 6-0, 6-2.

 

It was the third straight year Motevassel defeated Greenwald, the 2009 men’s singles champion, in the semifinals. The previous two matches also went to three sets.

 

Motevassel will face fourth-seeded Martin Barba of Carlsbad, Calif. in the men’s singles final, which is scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 2, at 10:30 a.m. (PST) at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club. Barba, the 2008 men’s singles champion, blanked Teet Ratsep of Aliso Viejo, Calif., 6-0, 6-0, in the other semifinal match.

 

Play continued in the Father / Son and Grandfather / Grandson USTA Hard Court Doubles Championships on Saturday. Both events will conclude on Sunday, Dec. 2.

McBride to Face Nideffer for Women’s USTA National 40 Hard Court Championships

Dina McBride

(November 30, 2012) La Jolla Top-seeded Dina McBride of Valencia, Calif., is set to face second-seeded Ros Nideffer of San Diego (Rancho Bernardo) for the women’s singles title on Saturday at the USTA National 40 Hard Court Championships.

 

The women’s singles final is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. (PST) at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club.

 

McBride, a former collegiate tennis star at the University of San Diego, reached the women’s singles final last year, but had to retire early in the match when she tore her Achilles tendon. She admitted she is not familiar with Nideffer, a former touring tennis professional who was once ranked No. 15 in the world.

 

“I don’t know her that well, so I’m going to have to try and figure it out as I go,” McBride said. “I have a lot of different tactics I can use in my game, so I’ll just pick what I need when I get out there and see if it’s working.”

 

The 52-year-old Nideffer captured the USTA National 40 Hard Court women’s singles title in 2009. Earlier this year, she won the Women’s 50 singles titles at the ITF Seniors World Individual Championships and USTA National Senior Women’s Hard Court Tennis Championships.

 

The men’s singles semifinals, featuring top-seeded Oren Motevassel of Rancho Mirage, Calif., versus third-seeded Jeff Greenwald of San Anselmo, Calif., and fourth-seeded Martin Barba of San Diego, against unseeded Teet Ratsep of Aliso Viejo, Calif., will begin at 9 a.m. on Saturday.

 

The Father / Son and Grandfather / Grandson USTA Hard Court Doubles Championships got underway on Friday morning before rain suspended play in the afternoon. Both events will continue on Saturday and will conclude on Sunday, Dec. 2.

McBride Moves into Final of USTA National 40 Hard Court Championships

Dina McBride

(November 29, 2012) La Jolla, Calif. -Top-seeded Dina McBride of Valencia, Calif. took another step in her singles comeback as she defeated Deborah Higa of Solana Beach, Calif., 6-2, 6-1, to advance to the women’s singles final of the USTA National 40 Hard Court Championships for the second straight year.

 

In last year’s women’s singles final, McBride, a former collegiate tennis star at the University of San Diego, had to retire at 3-3 in the first set due to a torn Achilles tendon.

 

During her recovery since then, she has played some doubles, but had not played a practice set of singles until a week and half ago and was unsure if she would play this year’s tournament.

 

“I didn’t know if I could play. I was still recovering,” she said. “This is probably a year and a half injury and I’m back in a year, which is really unheard of.”

 

This week, McBride used her early round matches to get some feeling back on the singles court and credits her focus on playing one point at a time and taking one match at time for helping her get to her second consecutive singles final.

 

“I’m excited to be back, but I want to win the tournament, so I’m not that excited yet. It’s not over,” McBride said. “I came here last year to win it and I didn’t win it and I’ve come this year to win it.”

 

McBride will face second-seeded Ros Nideffer of San Diego (Rancho Bernardo), in the women’s singles final scheduled for 11 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 1. Nideffer, who won the title in 2009, defeated seventh-seeded Carolyn Nichols of Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., 6-0, 6-1 to reach the final.

 

In men’s quarterfinal action, top-seeded Oren Motevassel of Rancho Mirage, Calif., third-seeded Jeff Greenwald of San Anselmo, Calif., fourth-seeded Martin Barba of San Diego and unseeded Teet Ratsep of Aliso Viejo, Calif., captured victories to advance to the semifinals.

 

In Saturday’s men’s semifinals, which will begin at 9 a.m. (PST), Motevassel will face Greenwald and Barba will meet Ratsep. The men’s singles final is slated to begin at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 2.

 

The USTA National Father and Son Hard Court Doubles Championships, which features 70 teams, will take center stage on Friday, Nov. 30 with matches beginning at 9 a.m. (PST). The defending champions are Travis Rettenmaier of Las Vegas, and Tom Rettenmaier of Fountain Valley, Calif., who are seeded No. 1.

 

Former eight-time USTA National Father and Son Hard Court Champions Brett Joelson and Brian Joelson are also entered. They are seeded second.

 

The Grandfather and Grandson Hard Court Doubles Championships will also get underway on Friday, Nov. 30 with matches beginning at 1 p.m. (PST). The Father and Son and Grandfather and Grandson events will conclude on Sunday, Dec. 2.

Montevassel and Greewald Gain Quarters at USTA National 40 Hard Court Championships

La Jolla, Calif. – (November 28, 2012) Defending champion and top-seed Oren Motevassel of Rancho Mirage, Calif., continued his strong run at the USTA National 40 Hard Court Championships at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club, as he defeated ninth-seeded James Dao of Santa Ana, Calif., 6-1, 6-2, to advance to the men’s singles quarterfinals.

 

Joining Motevassel in Thursday’s quarterfinals was third-seeded Jeff Greenwald of San Anselmo, Calif., who won his fourth-round match in impressive fashion as he swept past ninth-seeded Nelson Alapi of La Jolla, Calif., 6-0, 6-0.

 

The 46-year-old Greenwald, a former competitor on the ATP World Tour, won the men’s singles title at the USTA National 40 Hard Court Championships in 2009. He was ranked number one in the world by the International Tennis Federation in the Men’s 35 and over division in 2002.

 

After receiving a first-round bye this week, Greenwald, a sports psychology consultant and licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, has dominated the competition in losing only three games in three matches.

 

“I feel really good this year, fit and not injured,” Greenwald said. “I’m enjoying the matches. I feel like I’m serving well and I feel very grooved right now. I’m looking forward to the upcoming matches.”

 

Greenwald, the author of Fearless Tennis and The Best Tennis of Your Life, has fond memories of winning the title here in 2009 and enjoys the relaxed tournament atmosphere of the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club.

 

“My fondest memory, are my kids running out on the court at the end of the match in the finals and sharing that with them,” he said. “I look forward to this tournament every year. There is nothing you can really compare it to. The beach, the atmosphere and the people and the way they run the tournament is phenomenal.”

 

In women’s quarterfinal singles action, top-seeded Dina McBride of Woodland Hills, Calif., defeated San Diego’s Christina Kaus of San Diego, 6-2, 6-0 and second-seeded Ros Nideffer of San Diego (Rancho Bernardo) eliminated sixth-seeded Marlo Carruth of Studio City, Calif., 6-2, 6-2.

 

In Thursday’s singles semifinals, McBride will face third-seeded Deborah Higa of Solana Beach, Calif., while Nideffer will play seventh-seeded Carolyn Nichols of Rancho Santa Fe, Calif. Both matches will begin at 9:30 a.m. (PST).

Top Women’s Seeds Advance at USTA National 40 Hard Court Championship

(November 27, 2012) La Jolla, California Top seeded Dina McBride of Woodland Hills, Calif. and second-seeded Ros Nideffer of San Diego (Rancho Bernardo), Calif. won singles matches earlier today to advance to the third round of the USTA National 40 Hard Court Championships.

 

Playing under mostly sunny skies at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club, McBride breezed past Tai Sisson of San Dimas, Calif., 6-1, 6-0 in a second-round match. McBride, who played collegiate tennis for the University of San Diego in the mid-1990s, reached last year’s women’s singles final.

 

Nideffer, a former touring tennis professional and a two-time Wimbledon singles quarterfinalist, eliminated Julie Gaynor of Las Vegas, 6-3, 6-1, in a second-round encounter.

 

Earlier this year, the 52-year-old Nideffer captured the Women’s 50 singles title at the ITF Seniors World Individual Championships and USTA National Senior Women’s Hard Court Tennis Championships. Both events were played at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club.

 

When asked what inspired her to play in this week’s National 40 Hard Court Championships, she responded, “I just felt like I couldn’t watch it go by and not participate. It’s nice to have something to focus on and to keep myself in shape and try to keep myself young.”

 

It is obvious Nideffer’s competitive fire on the tennis court is still alive. “I want to win it,” she said with a smile. “I would just like to play well. I really don’t know the competition so I have to just focus on my own game, try to get my serve going, be aggressive and go for my shots.”

 

In men’s singles action on Tuesday, top-seeded Oren Motevassel reached the fourth round with a 6-2, 6-2 victory over Carter Hedrick of Manhattan Beach, Calif. Third-seeded Jeff Greenwald of San Anselmo, Calif. and fourth-seeded Martin Barba of San Diego also advanced to the fourth round with straight set victories.

Defending Champion Montevassel Opens with Win at USTA National 40 Hard Court Championships

La Jolla, Calif. – (November 26, 2012) Defending champion and No. 1 seeded Oren Motevassel of Rancho Mirage, Calif., began his men’s singles title defense at the USTA National 40 Hard Court Championships on a successful note, as he defeated Kevin Quinn of Downey, Calif., 6-0, 6-1.

 

On a cool, partly cloudy day at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club, Motevassel, who received a first-round bye, used a strong baseline game to overpower Quinn in one-hour and 15 minutes in their second round match.

 

After winning last year’s USTA National 40 Hard Court Championships, Motevassel made in known that he enjoys playing at the LJB&TC. “It’s a good feeling. I wait for this tournament all year. It’s the nicest tournament because it has a special environment,” he said. “It’s a good club, good weather, so all together, it makes a great tournament.”

 

Motevassel played for 15 years on the men’s professional tennis and was once ranked as high at 161 in the world before retiring in 2001. Coming into the tournament this week, Motevassel says he is ready for the challenge of defending his title this week. “I’m feeling actually really good. I’m feeling on top of my game,” he said. “I played a lot this year, so I’m in shape and I’m looking forward (to it).”

 

Jeff Tarango, a former touring tennis professional who was seeded second in the men’s singles draw, withdrew from his scheduled singles match on Monday afternoon. Tarango, a resident of Manhattan Beach, Calif., is entered in the Mixed Doubles and Father and Son Doubles events.

 

In women’s tournament action scheduled for Tuesday, top-seeded Dina McBride of Woodland Hills, Calif., plays her opening round match at 9:30 a.m. (PST). Second-seeded Ros Nideffer of San Diego (Rancho Bernardo), Calif. will play her first match at 10:30 a.m. (PST). McBride and Nideffer received first-round byes.
