The USHA has been holding its national tournaments for 40 years. Some years have been better than others. This year was a gem, marked by intense competitions throughout the tournament and amazing finals that were a joy to watch for any fan of the game.

Each of the open finals required tie-breakers. Robert Sostre edged out Cesar Sala, winner of this year's Mayor's Cup, in the singles 16, (19), 8. However Cesar gained revenge with his partner Joe Kaplan as they defeated Robert and Kendell Lewis for the doubles win (14), 19, 6. See coverage of open singles and men's doubles

The women's winners were a repeat from last year. Priscilla Shumate defeated Karen McConney, (19), 13, 4. However, Karen and her partner Adrian Floyd defeated Barbara Canton-Jackson and Dori Ten in an extremely close match (16), 16, 9. See coverage of women's events

Last year the tournament organizers had to respond to monsoon like rains as part of the tournament. While this year's event was marked by slight rain delays and the threat of a storm on Sunday, all matches were completed on the outdoor courts.
