Dragon Doc 2009

Lynie MinkowskiDr. Gary Myerson's signature event played out over a rainy August Patrick Chifunda of Zambia, 1st seed, who survived an 80 minute semi against Tiago Cabral of Brazil, will meet 2nd seed Jose Angel Becerril of Mexico, who streaked through his 35 minute semi over Canada's Dane Sharp.

Other results of note: the three Saleem juniors, Nabil, Danial, Arhum, were each victorious in their skill levels, winning the 3.0s, 3.5s, 4.0s respectively.

Bryan Keating of Philadelphia proved the class of the Under 19 draw. Two unsuccessful PSA Qualifiers, Mohammed Farooq and Maxim LeClair, both of Canada, marched through the 6.0 draw, with Farooq winning the final in 4. LeClair is the new assistant pro at the Montreal Midtown Athletic Club.

Former Atlantan & now Connecticutian Adam Walker marched through the 5.5s. Billy Potter of UGA reversed his first round loss to Adrian Cronje in the 5.5s to prevail over Cronje in the semis and then take the 5.0s.

Concourse's Paul Boyce came back to take the 4.5s over Midtown's Paul Havey. Tim Osborne came back from match ball to defeat Columbia's Harry Miley in the 50Bs. And Michael Kilgallon triumphed over a very tired Thomas deLange in the 50s.

Surprising back stories were the reversals of fortune for the many (almost all) who played two draws; e.g., Midtown's Samuel Gitungo managed to make the 4.0s semis but lose in the 3.5s quarters to frequent partner Jonathon McMurry. That, and the surprising number of late round walkovers due to injury and illness.

20 pros, 102 amateurs, the 7th annual. Look for the 8th annual DragonDoc to come back at the $7,500 PSA level.
