The National Prize Money One-on-One Doubles Tournament and Live rockin’ blues concert returned to the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, with a great night of tennis and music. The tournament was won by former Auburn Tiger player Daniel Cochrane, who defeated former Clemson Tiger Derek DiFazio in the finals, 6-1. Cochrane took home $1,000, while the runner-up DiFazio won $500. Former college players were all over the draw, as two former Florida Gators advanced to the semifinals.
One-on-One Doubles is the half-court serve and volley singles game played on the doubles court. All points are played cross-court with the alley included.This event is unique to the tennis industry, as both a pro tennis tournament and live concert take place simultaneously to create a fan-friendly, party-like atmosphere. The competition level was extremely high, as the winner of the Pro One-on-One Doubles Grand Prix Circuit, played in Florida earlier this year, was a participant at the National Tennis Center, along with a number of other national-level players.
The USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center supplied a great buffet of food and drinks as recording artists, The F&G Blues Band, played their brand of blues as the matches progressed. For more information, visit www.oneononedoubles.com.
