Not to be outdone, after dropping the first set 6-0, Drew Broderick and Jared Palmer fought back to defeat Juan Arraya and Max LePivert 0-6, 6-2, 6-1.

The 60th Annual Short Hills Invitational Platform Tennis Tournament - the longest running event in the history of the sport outside of Nationals - provided plenty of competition over three days and what seemed like two entirely separate seasons. Friday's play occurred under dry, gray skies, with Steve Griggs and Steve DeRose claiming the 95+ crown and Jodi D'Agostini and Claudia Mullett the Women's "B" title (title match on Sunday). Saturday was cold, icy, rainy, miserable weather...but play continued throughout the day. On Sunday, under beautiful blue skies, Kerri Delmonico and Aila Main topped Heather Prop and Lynne Schneebeck for the Women's Championship and Drew Broderick and Denny English knocked out their competition in the Men's Championship. See the full draws and some photos.

When your partner is unavailable for a tournament, sometimes you stay home as well. Sometimes you pair up with someone else for the event.

With their victory in the Women's Ranking tournament, Cynthia Dardis and Amy Shay took over the top ranking.

The frigid temperature was as much a topic of conversation as the play at the 56th Annual Short Hills Invitational. Lauren Zink and Cindy Prendergast returned to action and captured the crown with an entertaining three set victory over Sally Cottingham and Chris Sheldon. In the Men’s Ranking event, the top 2 teams met for the crown, with David Caldwell and Blake Cordish defeating Dan Rothschild and John Schmitt. 6 champions were crowned over the three days, click here for full story, results and photos.

Short Hills Invitational 95+

Short Hills , NJ
The Short Hills Invitational Tournament added a Men’s 95+ event this year, and all involved consider it a success.  Five of the 16 teams were father-son combos – Browne, Cochrane, Crosta, Estes and Ruppert – who are now promoting the idea of a Father-Son tournament.  The snow and sleet that was predicted for Friday morning did not arrive until late afternoon, allowing most matches to be played under ideal circumstances.  Most of the crowd stayed on the porch for the final, however, as the weather turned very wet and cold.  Andy Sorrentino and John Stefanik defeated both seeded teams – Scott and Scott Estes in the semifinals and Gary and Mike Cochrane in the finals – to take home the crown.  photos and results
