The 6th year of the tour kicked off in spectacular Indian Wells, CA and signaled the start to another four exciting events around the country. Players met in the VIP center court suite, on Friday evening, for the traditional meet and greet cocktail party, as well as to view the evening matches of the BNP Paribas Open.
On Saturday morning, pro/am teams gathered at the stadium for the first two rounds of the tournament, then headed up to the suite for lunch and a fantastic afternoon watching the two men’s semi-final matches of the BNP Paribas Open. Federer, Isner, Djokovic and Dolgopolov entertained and thrilled the sold out stadium, with amazing tennis, in unbelievably hot conditions.
On Saturday evening, Jerry Weintraub graciously hosted and entertained everyone at his fabulous home in Big Horn. Guests were treated to a sit down dinner on the terrace, with sweeping and moonlit views of the golf course and skyline, while listening to rising star Josh Vietti, a pop/hip-hop violinist.
Another perfect weather day greeted everyone on Sunday morning for the final two rounds of the pro/am. After completing the round robin matches, the first final featured Bob Hogan and partner Graydon Oliver, competing against veteran tour competitors, Sammy Herzberg and partner Jonathan Schneider. Hogan and Oliver went on to defeat the former tour champions. The second final featured Danny Weingeist and partner Mark Knowles playing against Joel Pashcow and partner Mariusz Fyrstenberg. In another great match, Weingeist and Knowles defeated Pashcow and Fyrstenberg. With both champion teams from Texas, this certainly was a major Texan sweep…tennis style!
Congratulations to the winners and finalists for providing exceptionally entertaining tennis for all of the spectators.
The 2014 leader board features Danny Weingeist and Bob Hogan leading, followed closely by Joel Pashcow and Sammy Herzberg.
