During Labor Day weekend, the energy at the Lisa & Douglas Goldman Tennis Center was electric with the 120th SF Open. Players from local universities such as USF, Saint Mary's, UC Davis and Santa Clara as well as former pros and other high-performance players lit up the courts, all competing for $5,000 in prize money.
See the photo slide show for finalists and champions. Congratulations to all!
As one of the oldest tennis competitions in America, the SF Open has been a prestigious star in the constellation of Bay Area adult tennis tournaments. It has been a favorite of local and regional players, several of whom went on to international fame such as Maurice McLoughlin and William Johnston. Later came Art Larsen, Tom Brown and Whitney Reed and women such as Alice Marble, Margaret Osborne (du Pont) and Rosemary Casals.
