I was at our State/District (they are the same) Championship this weekend. Most of the matches were played indoors at a fantastic collegiate facility with tons of bleachers elevated above the courts. The match in question involved one of my best friends and it was the #3 doubles court for 4.5 women Both teams were undefeated and the winner of the team match then qualifies for Sectionals in Indianapolis. The team match was tied at 2-2 with my friend's team sweeping the singles and the other team taking #1/#2 doubles. Towards the end, there were at least 50 people watching this match with both teams watching, several spectators for my friend and another team from our area waiting to go on court. It was a great match with my friend and her partner wining the 1st set 7-6 but then the other team took the 2nd set 2-6. We play a 10-point TB in lieu of a 3rd set at these championships. Two refs came over to officiate during the match TB. It was a see-saw affair with my friend/her partner going up a mini-break several times only to lose it. At 9-8 for my friend, her partner hit what should have been a winner but the other team got it back and benefited from a let cord. It soon became 10-9 for the other team and on their MP, the other team had an overhead that my friend flailed at and unbelievably got a racquet on, the ball ran along the top of the net and dribbled over. The other team got there but had to pop it up because of the low bounce and my friend's partner crushed an overhead. My friend won the next point so it was back to match point for them, 11-10. The other team was serving. The first serve was a fault into the net. The second serve was in but even before it bounced, one of the officials called a foot fault. The match was over. I've never seen anything like that in USTA league tennis. It was so weird, so anti-climatic. The foot faulter was seen sobbing afterwards. One of the other players on the losing team body checked a player on the winning team in the locker room. It was very contentious. People have disagreed about calling the first foot fault of the match at 10-9 in the TB. I guess, like Serena, if it happened the ref had to call it. If the ball is out, it is called. If the foot is out of bounds, it must be called too. Weird, weird, ending for such a big match.
