Junior Leo Eisner shakes hands with his opponent before the final match of the league singles championship.

Location: Oak Park Tennis Complex in Stockton


Date: May 3


Final scores: Junior Leo Eisner lost (5-7, 4-6)


Inside info per Eisner: “(My opponent) was a damn wall. No ball could get past him. I tried both defense and offense on him, and, obviously, neither worked. I would hit very hard shots in a distant corner, and he would still be able to send the ball back to me. It was very close all of the time – even the set scores.

“Since this was my first time losing a match this year, I was frustrated. (However), I’m still pretty happy with my efforts. I’m looking forward to next year’s season!”
