USTA ATLANTIC COAST CUP
Team New England Champs
The Atlantic Coast Cup Championships were recently completed in Connecticut early this month. The USTA national team competition is made up of the top Men’s 45 players in New England, Eastern, Mid Atlantic and the Middle States vying for the coveted championship.
Team New England won back the title they won in 2007 with an upset victory over the powerhouse Mid Atlantic states. David MacBurnie secured the victory with the deciding match over a top 5 national player in straight sets at #2 . The New England team went on to beat the Middle States and a recorded a resounding victory over their rivals, the Eastern States, 6-1. The win secured New England their 3rd title in the last 5 years….maybe a dynasty in the works.
