In Sunday finals that went the distance, it was the USTA Southern men and the USTA Caribbean women who survived a tense Sunday in Tucson, Ariz., to become USTA League national champions.

The USTA Southern section Adult 40 & Over 3.0 men’s team, along with USTA Caribbean’s 40 & Over women’s 3.0 team, were crowned USTA League national champions at the Jim Reffkin Tennis Center in Tucson, Ariz.
The men, under the guidance of team captain Wayne Weidenbacher, upended USTA Northern California, 3-2, and then defeated USTA Caribbean in the final by the exact same 3-2 winning margin.
Also going the distance were Joan Rolon’s women out of San Juan, P.R., who handled USTA Midwest, 3-2, and next beat USTA Florida, 3-2, to win Caribbean’s third championship in the season’s first two weeks in Tucson. The section's Adult 18 & Over 3.0 men's and women's team also won titles last weekend.
“It was very competitive and we weren’t really expecting that,” said Elaine Mora, Caribbean team member. “We won a lot of sets in tiebreakers and I thought our team had a lot of heart and pulled through when it mattered.” 
All 17 USTA sections were accounted for in the 29 teams that competed this weekend, a cross-section of some of the finest recreational tennis players from all over the United States and Puerto Rico.
“It was perfect, everybody kept telling me it went very smoothly,” said USTA League National Manager Darcy Cobb. “We couldn’t have had better weather and the teams were all great to work with. Overall, the tournament was really easy.” 
Nearly 400 miles away in Indian Wells, Calif., the other USTA League National Championships for the Adult 18 & Over 2.5 divisions were decided as the USTA Caribbean men and USTA Pacific Northwest women earned victories at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden. The season continues in Tucson, Ariz., on Friday, Oct. 11, with the Adult 18 & Over 4.0 League National Championships.
