Will and Grant played really good tonight. Grant really took it to his opponent blanking him and really not giving the Anderson player a chance to win any games. Will played against a very consistent player, but served very well and went to the net to put constant pressure on his opponent. I am extremely happy with our #2 doubles team tonight. The came though with the winning point for us tonight and that is a good sign for them and our team. I think all they needed was an important win to get them confidence going into the final stages of the season. It also give our team momentum.
