And this weekend's 2016 USTA League 40+ 3.0 National Champions are ... Florida for the women and Middle States for the men

Another weekend of USTA League Nationals is in the books and we have the first two 40 & over National Champions crowned.  The 3.0 men and women played this weekend in Tucson and there was some good competition.

For the women, the semis found two close matches with Pacific Northwest beating Missouri Valley 3-2 and Florida beating Texas 3-2.  Both were minor upsets, Florida being ever so slight underdogs on 2D and 3D and PNW pulling an upset on 1D.  The final found Florida winning 3-2 as well, this one having one upset each way, and Texas getting third.

The men's semis found Intermountain pulling two upsets to win 4-1 over Florida and Middle States getting walloped on both singles courts but winning the doubles to win 3-2 over Texas.  Middle States used the same tactic in the final winning 3-2 all on the doubles courts and Texas getting third.

I've updated the tally of 2016 National Champions if you want to follow along.
