Avalon Park, Florida- Saturday's finale between the reigning champion Kurt "The Hurt" Collis and the #2 ranked Kenton "Grinder" WU was set to be one of the greatest matches of the season. With dozens of people from Deland and Deltona coming to watch the match the two giants clashed.
Kurt starts off hot getting an early brake and up 5-4 40-0 but the Grinder digs deep and gets a second and wins the set 7-5. Definitely the comeback set of the year. Both players start to show signs of fatigue under the burning sun but with strategic plays and precision Kurt Collis takes the second set 6-2 to level the match.
Both had to push themselves past their limits and go the distance. After dozens of deuces Kurt showed some metal and takes the 3rd set 6-0 and winning the match 5-7 6-2 6-0.
After the finals the Street Tennis Players enjoyed a spectacular banquet hosted by Papa Lozzi Italia. The players enjoyed a full course meal made fresh by Papa Lozzi himself.
