Repeat Champions
The idea was that partnerships would change.  Players would switch partners each and every week; however, due to two unfortunate injuries AND an overall dissatisfaction with the extremely windy conditions from last Sunday that concept was postponed.    The same top teams returned.  This time things would be different.  Perhaps.  Perhaps not.

The tournament went down to the familiar faces: Plentz, Lobato, the Mendonca Brothers, Moises Davalos, and Jonathan Silva.  America’s top team repeated their success from the first week proving that was no fluke.  Plentz/Lobato avenged their Week 1 loss to the Mendonca Brothers by winning a slug-fest Semi-Final Match.  The Championship Match – the repeat Champs were too good defensively for Lobato/Plentz who could find no answers offensively.

‘We are simply a better team.  Better offensively and better defensively.  This is why we win.  It’s more than just mental.’
