Congratulations 2014 Doubles Champions Anna Tatishvili and Heather Watson

And Doubles Finalists 




Safe to say that British 21 year old, Heather Watson found great success at the Dow Corning Tennis Classic winning in both the singles and doubles tournaments. Watson first took Stadium court at the Midland Community Tennis Center for the singles final against Ksenia Pervak of Russia.  After falling back in the first set 4-1, Watson went on to win eleven straight games on her way to a 6-4, 6-0 victory. A half an hour after taking the singles title, Watson retook Stadium court with partner Anna Tatishvili to compete in the doubles final against Canadian Sharon Fichman and American Maria Sanchez. It took a 10-point tiebreak for Watson and Tatishvili to clinch the match and win the doubles Dow Corning Tennis Classic championship, 7-5, 5-7, 10-6.
With one of the deepest fields we’ve ever seen at the tournament, it was yet again another week of exciting premier tennis enjoyed by incredible crowds each day and night. Between Valentine’s lobster courtside meals, and a Mike Woody/Austin Woody match against pros Asia Muhammad and Nicola Slater, we saw it all this week at the 26th Dow Corning Tennis Classic. It couldn’t of been possible without the effort of all of those who worked on the tournament and of course all of those that came to support the players! The tournament is clearly a staple in the amazing community that is Midland, Michigan and continues to provide unmatched entertainment. There’s a reason Midland was voted best tennis town and that was made as clear as ever this past week.
Can’t wait to do it again next year!!
