After an exciting week of matches, American Tom Fawcett has captured the eighth annual Houghton Boston Tennis Classic title. Fawcett, the eighth seed, came through the top half of the draw, overcoming the number one seed Lucas Miedler in the quarterfinals. All of Fawcett’s matches were won in straight sets, except for his second-round win over fellow American Gary Kushnirovich, which went to three.

In the final, Fawcett faced another American: William Griffith and won 6-2, 7-5. Griffith entered the draw as a qualifier and battled through all his main-draw matches in three sets (until the final). Through the week, he played a total of 19 sets in 7 matches!

In doubles, number one seeds Marc-Andrea Huesler of Switzerland and Sem Verbeek of the Netherlands overcame the Canadian duo of Alexis Galarneau and Benjamin Sigouin 6-3, 6-3 to win the title.

The Houghton Boston Tennis Classic continues to be a successful event and a great opportunity to see professional tennis in our province. Tennis Saskatchewan thanks all tournament organizers, staff, volunteers, sponsors, players and fans for making the event a continued success.
