Whitesell and Henderson Reclaim Title at Beach Tennis USA 2009 National Championship

Lee Whitwell and Joslynn Burkett Sweep Competition

The 2009 Beach Tennis USA National Championship produced two days of exciting, fast-paced action. For the first time ever, the National Championship in the United States featured a “Paddle Battle” in addition to the regular racquet competition. On Saturday, September 5, teams from all over the world competed using paddles, rather than conventional tennis racquets. The European athletes in attendance, who have played with paddles for years, were the teams to beat in this tournament. In the Men’s Pro division finals, it was two Italian teams that would square off: Gianluca Chirico and Massimo Mattei (Ravenna, IT) versus Maurizio DiCori and Emanuele Bianchedi (Ravenna, IT). Both teams are very familiar with the sport of beach tennis, having competed in over 100 tournaments in Italy, combined. Although DiCori and Bianchedi were new-comers to American sand, it was no detriment to their game, as they defeated Chirico and Mattei 8-5. Over on the Ladies Pro Division, the finals match consisted of two Southern California teams, Lee Whitwell and Joslynn Burkett (San Diego, CA) versus Lucy Streeter and Kristen Flagler (Hermosa Beach, CA). Flagler and Streeter knocked out Nadia Johnston (Long Beach, NY) and Nicole Melch (Cresskill, NJ) in the semi-finals to advance, however they were no match for the duo from San Diego as they easily captured the first Paddle Battle title by a score of 8-4.

Sunday, September 6 featured the tennis racquet version of the 2009 Beach Tennis USA National Championship. In the Men’s Pro Division, the two-time defending champions Matteo Marighella and Alex Mingozzi (Ravenna, IT) advanced to the finals to face off against former national champions Chris Henderson and Phil Whitesell (Charleston, SC). Henderson and Whitesell, who won titles in 2005 and 2006, were eager to defeat the Italians and bring the trophy back to the U.S. In dramatic fashion, the pair of Americans stunned the crowd as they delivered powerful serves, which was enough to defeat the seemingly unbeatable Italian team, 8-6. In the Ladies Pro Division, it was the duo from San Diego, CA yet again who would advance to the finals. Lee Whitwell and Joslynn Burkett would face the hometown hero, Nadia Johnston, and her partner, Nicole Melch, who have been unstoppable in the tournaments in which they competed this season. The only thing fiercer than competition was the wind that made it very difficult to serve the ball. But the Ladies battle through and seemed to be on par since a tiebreaker set was necessary. The San Diego team proved to be too much for Melch and Johnston as they gained and maintained momentum in the tiebreaker set to win it, 9-8(5). Whitwell and Burkett cleaned up in Long Beach, NY, winning both the Paddle Battle finals and the 2009 Beach Tennis National Championship.
