Boys’ Tennis: DP’s Sasha Gryaznov Advances to Finals

Doubles matches in the league tournament will begin Wednesday

The Channel League boys’ tennis tournament continued Tuesday, and the following are the results of the singles semifinals at Cathedral Oaks Athletic Club:

» Chase Melton (Santa Barbara) defeated Michael Lowe (Ventura)  6-2, 6-2

» Alexander (Sasha) Gryaznov (Dos Pueblos) defeated Nico Pollero (Santa Barbara) 6-4, 6-2

As expected, the top seeds advanced. Both sets saw a lot of incredible action. Spectators enjoyed long rallies, which included hopping backhands, crisp volleys, great angles, dropshots and baseline winners.

All players showed how well they could up the pace on the ball as well as place it.

The finals will start at 3:30 p.m. Thursday at Cathedral Oaks.

The Channel League Tournament continues Wednesday, with doubles matches beginning at 1:30 p.m. at Dos Pueblos.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
