    WHEELERSBURG — The Wheelersburg High School girls tennis team continues to sweep through the non-league competition. That’s because, bouncing back following a hard-fought 4-1 Southern Ohio Conference-opening loss at Waverly last Thursday, the Lady Pirates completed a two-match sweep in a three-day span, blanking both host Hillsboro on Saturday and Ironton on Tuesday by 5-0 counts. The four-day three-match gauntlet gave the Lady Pirates a 3-1 record, as Wheelersburg is the two-time defending SOC champion —as it also captured consecutive conference championships from 2015 thru 2018. Against Hillsboro, the Lady Pirates allowed only three combined set points in the three singles matches —and only six in the pair of doubles contests. All five Wheelersburg wins came courtesy of straight-set sweeps. Emma Brinkman and Aby Jones at first doubles (6-1 and 6-2), and Avery Lowery and Brooklyn Howard at second doubles (6-0 and 6-3), had sweeps — as did first singles Maria Nolan (6-0 and 6-1), second singles Emily Janney (6-1 and 6-1), and third singles Jocalynn Conley (6-0 and 6-0). Against Ironton, the Lady Pirates had much more challenging matches,...
    BAKU, Azerbaijan (AP) — Domenico Vicini reached another Davis Cup milestone Friday by playing his 100th match — just two days after the 50-year-old became the oldest player in tournament history to win a match. The San Marino player, who turns 51 in September, played a doubles match with 17-year-old Simone De Luigi against Iceland in Europe Group 4 play. They lost 6-2, 6-3 to Rafn Bonifacius and Daniel Siddall. “It’s a great achievement for me,” Vicini said of the century mark. “It’s been a long journey, but from the beginning I have been able to travel to so many places and see so many things.” The 50-year-old Vicini won his doubles match on Wednesday against Albania. Three years ago, Vicini set a Davis Cup record as the oldest player to win a singles match. That was at age 47 years, 318 days. “I don’t know when I will stop,” he said Friday. “I will continue to play as long as I can. The motivation is my passion for the sport and to compete for my country.” Despite the doubles...
    Nick Kyrgios has voiced his displeasure at the prospect of having to play five-set matches in the men's doubles at Wimbledon. Kyrgios won the event at the Australian Open alongside Thanasi Kokkinakis earlier this year, and the pair are due to team up again at SW19. When they won in Melbourne, Kyrgios and Kokkinakis only had to play best-of-three set matches throughout the tournament, but the same competition at Wimbledon is played across five sets, which Kyrgios is far from happy about.

    WHEELERSBURG —There is, or in this case was, simply no rest for the wicked —as was Wheelersburg’s Pirates on the boys tennis courts. For the final 10 days in April, the Pirates played a pair of back-to-back non-league matches against Portsmouth, then spent all of last week wrapping up Southern Ohio Conference competition —either regularly-scheduled matches or makeup matchups. As the calendar turned to May on Sunday, the Pirates concluded their regular season at 12-3 —and at 8-3 in the SOC. The Pirates split a pair of matches against Minford, then were swept by Waverly on Thursday —knocking them out of the conference championship chase. In first winning at Portsmouth, the Pirates won two singles matches and one doubles bout —giving them the victory as the first singles match and first doubles match were both stopped by rain before their conclusion. Preslee Etterling won 6-2 and 6-0 at second singles, Nathan Sylvia secured a 6-0 and 6-0 shutout at second singles, and Colson Arnold and Gavin Rase registered a 6-1 and 6-2 triumph at second doubles. The Pirates played Portsmouth...
    WHEELERSBURG — Truth be told, and unfortunately honestly, the Wheelersburg High School boys tennis team has endured a disjointed and jumbled —and basically a disheveled —season schedule-wise. However, the Pirates —when they are indeed playing and not weathered out —are winning matches, including a pair of 4-1 wins within the last full week. Last Thursday, host Wheelersburg won against Ironton 4-1 in a non-league match, in which all five individual matches were straight-set sweeps. The Pirates then, on Tuesday in a makeup matchup against visiting West in a Southern Ohio Conference clash, won 4-1 —as all four Wheelersburg wins were in straight sets. Wheelersburg, with its latest triumphs, raised its record to 5-1 —as an SOC match on Monday against visiting Minford was suspended due to the weather. It’s a key contest as well, and will be completed on Thursday. The lone loss for the Pirates —against defending conference champion Waverly —was 10 days ago, when the Pirates fell 5-0 and all in straight sets to the visiting Tigers. Wheelersburg was scheduled to play Portsmouth on Thursday (April 21) and...
    WHEELERSBURG — The Wheelersburg High School boys tennis team, the defending Southern Ohio Conference champion, is off to a fast start to the 2022 campaign —with three SOC wins already in a matter of a week’s time. Sandwiched between a 4-1 win over visiting Clay last Wednesday, and a 5-0 shutout of visiting Valley on Monday, the Pirates performed under immense pressure on Saturday — and rallied for a dramatic 3-2 triumph over Minford to complete the comeback in a match suspended from March 29. At that time, the Pirates —playing at Minford in the season opener —trailed 2-0 when the contest was suspended due to inclement weather. At first doubles, Minford’s Kaden Kelley and Dillon Osborne already swept Colson Arnold and Austin Collier 7-5 and 6-6 (5-7), and Charlie Neal notched a first-singles sweep over Alex Thomas 6-3 and 6-2. But the Pirates reversed course on Saturday —gaining identical 6-4 and 6-1 sweeps at second doubles and third singles, and Preslee Etterling amassing a three-set marathon win at second singles over Nathaniel King. Etterling outlasted King with 6-1 wins...

    By: Maggie Ragland, Bulldog Barker   The Bulldog Tennis teams leapt into action this past week, playing their first three matches of the season.  The teams went up against Christian Heritage on February 22, Pepperell on February 24, and Adairsville on February 25.  The boys started the season off strong, defeating all three opposing teams, while the girls fell to two out of three of their opponents after tough battles. The Dogs traveled to Dalton Golf and Country Club to face off against the Christian Heritage Lions last Tuesday, with the boys taking home a sweeping 5-0 win and the girls falling to the Lions 4-1.  First seed James Willingham won his match 6-0, 6-2; second seed Tanish Patel had a 6-2, 6-3 win; and third seed Jace Brown won 7-5, 6-2.  As for the doubles’ teams, Cole Cavin and Issaic Stewart won their match in a 6-4 win in the first set, a 3-6 loss in the second set and a 10-4 tiebreaker win with second doubles Josh Stephens...
    NEW YORK (AP) — LOOKAHEAD TO THURSDAY The women’s semifinals will feature a teenager in each match and nobody who has won a major title in either. Canadian Leylah Fernandez, 19, faces No. 2-seeded Aryna Sabalenka of Belarus in the first match under the lights at Arthur Ashe Stadium. Then it’s Emma Raducanu, an 18-year-old qualifier from Britain, against No. 17 seed Maria Sakkari of Greece. Fernandez is trying to duplicate the feat of countrywoman Bianca Andreescu, who won the U.S. Open in 2019 when she was 19. Sabalenka is in her second straight major semifinal and trying to reach her first Grand Slam final. Sakkari also made her first Slam semifinal this year at the French Open. To go further she’ll have to beat who hasn’t dropped a set yet in Flushing Meadows. Raducanu is the first qualifier in the professional era to reach the U.S. Open semifinals. The day schedule includes the men’s doubles semifinals at Louis Armstrong Stadium. THURSDAY’S FORECAST Cloudy. High of 73 degrees Fahrenheit (23 Celsius). WEDNESDAY’S WEATHER Partly cloudy. High of 82 degrees Fahrenheit...
    IRONTON — Right now, nobody is beating the heat —or even the rare rainfall — quite like the Wheelersburg High School girls tennis team. That’s because the Lady Pirates, in pitching a second straight shutout, remained undefeated at 5-0 —following Tuesday’s 5-0 non-league sweep of the host Ironton Lady Fighting Tigers. Already a 5-0 winner over Southern Ohio Conference rival Minford, and a same-score winner over non-league foe Hillsboro, the Lady Pirates — amid Tuesday temperatures in the lower-90s — easily swept all three singles matches, and took both doubles contests without Ironton even scoring a single solitary set point. Wheelersburg’s Emma Brinkman and Avery Lowery won the second doubles match via forfeit, as Ironton did not have a second double team. At first doubles, the Lady Pirates posted a 6-0 and 6-0 shutout — as the strong tandem of senior Maegan Jolly and junior Emily Janney blanked Ironton’s Kodence Winters and Alix Scott. In the singles matches, Wheelersburg won all three —with Maria Nolan over Rachel Gillespie (6-2 and 6-2) at first, Serena Kataria over Kendall Pauley (6-4 and...
    Tennis: Olympic Games, live | Summary of Muguruza and Badosa’s doubles matches
    Two matches. Ten sets. A total of 628 points played. Just another Grand Slam filled with five-setters for Kei Nishikori. The former U.S. Open finalist rallied past 23rd-seeded Karen Khachanov 4-6, 6-2, 2-6, 6-4, 6-4 on Wednesday to reach the third round of the French Open — after having also gone the distance to beat Italian qualifier Alessandro Giannessi in his opening match. "My energy level was not great. Four hours first match and four hours today," Nishikori said. "I just keep playing. "My body (is) saying no but my mind is saying keep playing. ... I feel like (having played) five matches already." Nishikori improved to 9-2 in five-set matches at Roland Garros and 26-7 in his career. He’s won 10 of his last 11 five-setters. Khachanov was treated by a trainer in the fifth set after cutting his right middle finger by hitting his racket strings in anger. As the match wore on, Nishikori attempted to end points quicker and mixed in different tactics like serve-and-volleying. On his first match point, he unleashed a powerful inside-out forehand that...
    WEST PORTSMOUTH — By 4-1 counts, on Friday at West and on Monday at Waverly, the Wheelersburg High School boys tennis team posted a regular-season ending, weekend-dividing split. That’s because the Pirates, in Southern Ohio Conference makeup matchups, won at West by a 4-1 score — but lost by the same margin to the Waverly Tigers. The regular-season wrapups end Wheelersburg’s record at 12-3 —and at 9-3 in the SOC. Wheelersburg’s lone losses were twice to Waverly and once against Minford, as a non-league encounter against Ironton was rained out and will not be rescheduled. Against West, the Pirates swept for all four of their victories —as Wheelersburg’s Logan Davis at first singles shut out Ethan Hazelbaker 6-0 and 6-0, while Nathan Sylvia at second singles swept West’s Cole Tackett 6-0 and 6-1. In doubles, the Pirates’ Alex Thomas and Preslee Etterling swept Eli Adkins and Brandon Koch in the first doubles match, while Gavin Rase and Alex Meyers — at second doubles — made it a 6-0 and 6-4 triumph over West’s Bailee Wireman and Dylan Essman. West’s lone...
    WHEELERSBURG — With a close encounter out of conference, and a sweep inside the league, the Wheelersburg High School boys tennis team posted two more victories within the past week. On Friday, in a non-league match against visiting Portsmouth, the Pirates captured three singles triumphs against a pair of double defeats —winning that contest 3-2 after taking the first matchup against Portsmouth via 4-1 count. On Monday, the Pirates pitched their second 5-0 sweep of the Valley Indians this season — as Wheelersburg’s wins raised its record to now 9-3, and 6-2 inside the SOC. Against the Trojans, Logan Davis at first singles (6-1, 6-0), Alex Thomas at second singles (6-0, 6-2) and Nathan Sylvia (6-0, 6-1) at third singles swept their matches in straight sets —with Portsmouth posting wins in only four games. But the Trojans did gain a sweep this time in the doubles duels, as Gavin Rase and Austin Collier of Wheelersburg lost at first doubles 7-5 and 6-3 — while Taylor Hamm and Alex Meyers did the same at second doubles 7-6 (7-2) and 6-3. In...
    WHEELERSBURG — The Wheelersburg High School boys tennis team captured three recent victories in matches within the past week — including on Tuesday at home against West within the Southern Ohio Conference. The Pirates, which are now 8-3 and 5-2 inside the SOC, also defeated Portsmouth and New Boston in non-league encounters. Wheelersburg, on Wednesday, was set to host another non-league match against Ironton, but it was cancelled and will not be rescheduled. The Pirates swept the visiting Senators 5-0 on Tuesday, after a same-score sweep against visiting New Boston on Saturday and a 4-1 victory at Portsmouth on Friday. In between, Wheelersburg dropped its second match of the season on Monday against Minford. Against Portsmouth, Logan Davis at first singles, Alex Thomas at second singles and Preslee Etterling at third singles all won their matches via straight-set sweeps, including Davis with a 6-0 and 6-0 shutout. Thomas took his match 6-3 and 6-2, while Etterling amounted a 6-3 and 7-5 triumph. Both doubles matches went three sets with a split — as Wheelersburg won at first doubles with Nathan...
    ROSEMOUNT — The Wheelersburg High School boys tennis team kept its perfect 2021 record intact on Monday, and set up Tuesday’s tilt against another undefeated in the Southern Ohio Conference. That’s because the Pirates, with a 4-1 win at Clay, captured their sixth victory in as many matches this season —and fourth in the SOC. It was also Wheelersburg’s first match in an entire week — as the Pirates swept Valley last Monday before Thursday’s SOC match at West was rained out. Against Clay, the Pirates swept the three singles matches in straight sets —as the Panthers posted wins in only four games at singles. At second doubles, Colson Arnold and Chaz Myers of Wheelersburg won over Clay’s Landon Thomas and Mallory Swords 6-0 and 6-2 — as the Panthers got their only win at first doubles in a three-set marathon in which the third-set final score went all the way to 14-12. Bobby Deal and Hailey Arnett of Clay claimed a hard-fought 6-2, 3-6 and 14-12 triumph over Wheelersburg’s Nathan Sylvia and Austin Collier. At first singles and third...
    WHEELERSBURG — On the road, and in the heat one day and in the cold the next, the Wheelersburg Pirates played two tennis matches this past week —and captured both encounters by identical 3-2 counts. These were the first matches for the Pirate men this season, and actually were the first in two years — given that the 2020 Ohio High School Athletic Association season was cancelled in response to the coronavirus threat. On Tuesday, with warm sunny skies to play outdoors under, the Pirates won at Minford in a Southern Ohio Conference contest. All five individual matches were straight-set affairs, with Wheelersburg sweeping the three singles contests and the Falcons taking both of the doubles bouts. On Thursday, and amid chilly temperatures and even some snow flurries, the Pirates won at Ironton in a non-league matchup. Once again, Wheelersburg swept all three singles matches in straight sets, and almost earned wins in both doubles matches — but the Fighting Tigers took both in three hard-earned sets. Against the Falcons, Wheelersburg’s Logan Davis defeated Charlie Neal 6-4 and 6-2 at...
    WAVERLY — Three Southern Ohio Conference matches, three triumphs in one week for the Wheelersburg High School girls tennis team. That’s because the Lady Pirates, in their third duel in as many days on Thursday, captured a 4-1 SOC victory at Waverly — and remained undefeated at a perfect 8-0. After defeating Notre Dame 3-2 on Tuesday to complete that season sweep, and after blanking Valley 5-0 on Wednesday in a makeup matchup, the Lady Pirates played the Tigers for the first time —and avoided a second rainout with them. The other, which is set to be played at Wheelersburg, will be made up on Sept. 15 as the result of a rainout. With Thursday’s victory over Waverly, and only the return tilts with the Tigers and Valley remaining on their SOC slate, the Lady Pirates pushed their conference record to 6-0. Wheelersburg also owns non-league wins over Hillsboro (5-0) and Ironton (4-1). All of the Pirates’ wins over the Tigers came in straight sets, including a hard-fought second doubles bout, which went beyond the standard six games and win-by-two...
    HILLSBORO —The Wheelersburg High School girls tennis team returned to the courts for the first time in nine days on Saturday. By pitching their first team shutout of the season, in sweeping host Hillsboro 5-0, the Lady Pirates simply didn’t miss a beat. Wheelersburg won all five matches against the Lady Indians in straight sets, as Hillsboro had just one individual match in which it took more than two games in any one set. With the Saturday sweep, the Lady Pirates are now a perfect 3-0, as they last played twice in mid-August —having defeated host Minford 4-1 two weeks ago (Aug. 11) before edging visiting Notre Dame 3-2 two days later. Their non-league match against Athens on Aug. 14 was postponed, while last Tuesday’s tilt against Waverly in the Southern Ohio Conference was rained out. That contest has been rescheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 15. Against the Lady Indians, only Hillsboro’s Haley Norman — against Isabella Hamilton at third singles —was able to push past two games won in any one set. Still, Hamilton had the straight-sets sweep with an...
