2014 USTA League 40 & over 4.0 Women's Nationals Update

I've been following the men's 40 & over 4.0 Nationals closely as it is the level I play at, but the women are playing too.

In the 5 team flight, Mid-Atlantic and Southern tied at 3-1, but Mid-Atlantic had a 2 court advantage on the tie-breaker (they also beat Southern 5-0 and had it wrapped up before their last match) and advanced to the semis.

The second flight was a doozy with Pacific Northwest, Midwest, and Hawaii all finishing 2-1, each going 1-1 amongst themselves.  PNW advanced on courts won, 11-4 to Midwest's 10-5.

The third flight was a straightforward 3-0 win for New England with an impressive 12-3 courts record.

The last flight was even more competitive with Northern California, Middle States, and Florida all going 2-1 and NorCal advanced with a 9-6 courts record beating out Middle States' 8-7.

In the semis, Mid-Atlantic put the beat down on New England 5-0 while PNW eked out a 3-2 win over NorCal with one win in a match tie-break.

Look for an update on who wins later.
