2005 COPPER BOWL
at the Hilton El Conquistador
Tucson, Arizona - January 1-6, 2005
Wednesday, January 5, 2005-Day Five
Let the games begin! It may have been day five, but it was the first day players could really feel like they would play without the rain coming in. And play they did, preparing for tomorrow's tournament end.
When the Boys 18s final is played tomorrow, it will be between two unseeded players. University of Tulsa freshman Will Gray, who eliminated the No. 13, 16, 4 and 5 seeds respectively, will face Kyle Baker, who advanced yesterday after Rook Schellenberg retired with an injury and second-seeded Eric Roberson withdrew. It will be a great opportunity for both players to show what they've got.
The Girls 18s only played through to the quarters today where No. 4 Maggie Yahner advanced to play Maria Anisimova, a winner over No. 21 Nicole Kantor. The other semi should be a great one between No. 6 Lena Litvak and No. 10. Alison Riske. The Boys 16s also have semifinals to go tomorrow with unseeded Eric Lee moving in past No. 9 Ryan Berman to face No. 6 Kayvon Karimi. No. 5 Jack Seider will go up against No. 14 Ramsey Lemaich.
Laurianne Henry (Girls 16s), Jack Sock (Boys 12s) and Stephanie Vidov (Girls 12s) are the only No. 1 seeds left in the tournament. Both Laurianne and Stephanie will have to play their way through the semis first, but Jack is already in the finals with a chance to win here two championships in a row (he was the USTA National Winter champion last week).
