LaWade and Fred win the Mixed Doubles A vinnys tennis league in a close match

If you add up the total number of games for this match, you’ll find it exactly even at 13 games each. However, Fred and Lawade won the 3rd set and that was the difference in a 6-3,1-6,6-4 match over Lorna Secrest and Vince Romito on an early Sunday morning at the Highland Park Tennis Courts.

Lorna and Vince were undefeated during the regular season and had beaten LaWade and Fred after they had won the first set in a tiebreaker.  The weather was just too much for Fred and La Wade and they had to retire.

It was one of the toughest matches in vinnystennisleague in the Pittsburgh area.
