Nikki had a great time and an amazing experience at Tampa’s Harbour Island Athletic Club Level 7 Championships this weekend, November 15-17, 2014.
This tournament had USTA Chair Umpires and Line Umpires present on the court for every match. Nikki had a smile on her face and you can tell she was having a fun time out there.
It was a G16 and G18 only tournament, Nikki competed in the G16’s. She played a great match against her opponent 15 year old Lenah Monosky winning 6-1; 6-1. Her forehands and returns were remarkable.
In the Quarterfinals, Nikki played the #2 seeded player Evangeline Shannon on the Stadium Court. Nikki’s rallies were great. Lots of people in the stadium were clapping for her every time she hit a great shot. She was ahead 40-love and 40-15 so many times but didn’t follow through. She looked really good with her technique but it wasn’t enough to win. 6-4; 6-2. Next time!
