I'm Seeing Doubles, Actually I Saw Doubles

Friday, August 31, 2007

Yesterday Scoville Jenkins and Angela Haynes attempted to salvage some part of the U. S. Open for themselves, but they accomplished nada.

American Angela Haynes partnered with American Ahsha Rolle in the Women's Doubles. The team went up against American Vania King and Frenchwoman Emilie Loit. King and Loit defeated the pair 6-4, 6-1. It is now officially over for Angela Haynes, she'll have to try again next year. It's quite another story for Ahsha Rolle though.

Ahsha is becoming one of the more intriguing stories of the U. S. Open. The little known player has made it through to the third round thus far, and who knows what is on the horizon for this young lady. It's been said that her family has practically gone broke supporting her dream, as well as travelling to the Open. A couple more rounds and Ahsha should make quite a bit of that back.

After Rolle's second Match win, during her interview she said, "No, I'm not surprising myself, I always knew that I had the ability. It's just now that it's coming to pass. So I'm just the excited. Ready to ride it as long as it will go."

Back to the Doubles, both Americans Scoville Jenkins and Phillip Simmonds paired up in the Men's Doubles. Unfortunately, they had no success either. They were defeated by Yves Allegro of Switzerland and his partner Kristof Vliegen of Belgium by a score of 6-3, 6-3.

Scoville also paired up with American Alexa Glatch for Mixed Doubles. This young man wanted to play some tennis damn it!! But once again, victory eluded him. He and Glatch were defeated by the American team of Vincent Spadea and Vania King by a score of 6-2, 6-1.

It's over Scoville, let it go! Hey, I actually support you whole hearted, because you obviously know that nothing beats a failure but a try, and that you did.
