REYNOLDSBURG 2003
Adult Player of the Week

MARK MATHIAS

 

Nothing is more difficult than for a tennis tournament director to run and play in a tournament at the same time. For Mark Mathias to do this and win is deserving of the Adult Player of the Week Award for the Reynoldsburg Open.

Mathias competed in 4 divisions, winning two and reaching the final in a 3rd.

In men's 35 singles as the #2 seed, he defeated Mark Vennitti 6-0 6-0 in the quarters, #3 Kevin Rowe 6-3 6-3 in the semis and #1 Jeff Pannell 6-4 3-6 6-3 for the title.

Again as the #2 seed, this time in the men's open doubles, Mathias and partner Chris Brown-Borden beat Jason Roush and Kevin Rowe 6-3 2-6 6-4 in the quarters, #3 seeds Eric Ishida and Ryan Ragle 6-2 6-7 (3) 6-4 in the semis and Brian Ballmann and Brian Erwin 6-3 7-5 in the final.

Mathias also competed in the men's open singles draw where he downed Brad Boose 6-2 6-0 before losing to Jim D'Innocenzo 6-4 6-7 (5) 6-4 in the quarters.

And finally, Mathias and partner Mark Liefeld were the #1 seeds in the men's 35 doubles draw. There they beat Dave Goins and Randy Stewart 6-7 (5) 6-3 6-3 in the semis. However, the final in this event was never played due to rain and scheduling conflicts.

 

REYNOLDSBURG 2003
Junior Player of the Week

SAUMIL MODI

 

It seems 2003 was the year for unseeded players to rise up and upset seeded players on their way to tournament finals. Saumil Modi was another of these players and for his efforts, he was named the Junior Player of the Week for Reynoldsburg.

In the boys' 16 singles draw, Modi defeated Gian Sposito 6-1 6-2 in the first round, #2 seed Ryan Rauck 6-3 6-4 in the quarters and #3 Jason Benedict 6-2 6-0 in the semis. Modis run was stopped by #1 seed Ryan Dodd 6-2 6-2 in the final.
