In the Open Doubles division of the Tennis Plaza African American Tennis Tournament, the deadly duo of James Nguyen & Hung Do returned to defend their title at this event. This year they faced a more diverse field, including Lebanon's Omar Ammouni & Rene Pienovi of Brazil. Though Ammouni and Pienovi were a solid pairing, it was hard to stop the experience of Nguyen & Do who won the finals convincingly to retain their title successfully.
"We just feel lucky. I've been playing with Hung for many years so we know each other well. I just wish I knew ahead of time how good these academy kids are in the singles!", said Nguyen. James is widely ragrded as the best Vietnamese player in Central Florida with multiple titles at the annual Vietnamese Open.
