American Mashona Washington will meet Canadian Valerie Tetreault in the championship match at the 2009 Hunt Communities USTA Pro Tennis Classic at the Tennis West Sports and Racquet Club in El Paso, Texas on Sunday.
Washington defeated Australian Monique Adamczak 7-5, 6-1 in the semifinals to reach the final.
“It was a little difficult in the beginning, I didn’t have much rhythm and threw in some double faults. She had some double faults on the same side, so maybe it was the side. I sensed a little change in her attitude, in her demeanor. But she was still coming up with big shots. I just told myself, okay, that was just a good shot and not let it bother me, not let it create a domino effect.”
She obviously overcame that sentiment.
