An extraordinary court and a great match! We started our adventure by meeting at our favorite local tennis store The Racketman for some purchases. Once our supplies were in hand we headed over to nearby Pioneer Park in Des Peres. These courts were suggested to us by our friends the McGuires for their unusual surface made of interlocking plastic squares.
Second set was a different story as Scott began to get a feel for things and began to control the play with his forehand. Second set went to the north county boy 6-3. Points in the second set were much longer as both players adjusted to the court surface.
Third set became an all out war! Stan took the first two games and then Scott won three in a row to go up 3-2. At 5-4 Scott held two match points....Stan
rose two the occasion and denied the first one with a return of serve that just kissed the baseline. On the second point Scott came to the net and the Bulgarian hit a short angle passing shot that clipped the sideline. Match Points Denied!
The Pretzel Boys for some nourishment and refreshments. Court location here was a 10 and the condition was an 8. Pretty good experience on this strange plastic surface!
