Memorial Day, Monday, May 30, 2005 in Central Park Tennis Center (photo above)
The Central Park Tennis Center was packed with hundreds of tennis players last Monday.  The NO SHOW list was very long, more than 2 pages of names, that most players waiting for their name to be called got frustrated and left.  Those who stayed and got a court had a wonderful time playing tennis.

Ken Shane def. Jim Pepin (photo L) 6-2 5-3 (bell rang) 2pm 
Ken said after the match: "He has good strokes but he needs practice. I kept the ball in play and at the end I started charging the net.  Jim has good technique and in a few weeks, he will be a very good player."
Roman Livson def. Steven Chen 6-3 10am start 
Steven said: "We were even at 3-3, after that, every game went to deuces and each time I lost because I got nervous."
Jean Telfort  vs. Ramesh Parameswar 8am
1st set Ramesh def. Jean 6-1
2nd set Jean def. Ramesh 7-5
3rd set Ramesh and Jean tied at 1-1 (bell rang)
Jean (photo L) said after the match: "I kept serving to his forehand in the first set.  I think his backhand is better and flat so its harder to get.  His forehand is a high topspin so its easier to return.  In the second set, I tried to serve wide, pulled him wide and it was effective.  I made him ran more."
Ramesh said: "Jean changed the whole game in the second set. He returned well and my backhand shots weren't as deep and consistent."
