Results from rainy Day 1 of boys tennis 2022 state singles, doubles tourneys, 2 top seeds out

Rain was able to damper on the Day 1 of the NJSIAA state singles and doubles tournaments on Saturday at Mercer County Park in West Windsor and Veterans Park in Hamilton.

Delays took place at both sites, with Veterans hit harder. There are still a handful of incomplete second round of singles matches that need to be played at Veterans while only a couple of doubles matches finished, too.

The first two rounds of singles for the top half of the bracket were able to complete at Mercer County Park, albeit they finished at almost 8:00 pm

Singles second-seeded Matias Feoli of Millburn and third-seeded Josh Mandelbaum withdrew from the tournament. Feoli got sick right before the tournament and Mandelbaum injured his back in the Tournament of Champions team final on Thursday.

Max Loia of Ramapo, at 9-16, was knocked-off in the second round by Montclair’s Tylan Ozkuzey in a doozey, 6-3, 3-6, (12-10). However, while it is an upset based on Ozkuzey being unseeded, Loia’s UTR score is 9.09 and Ozkuzey’s is 8.47, so it is not far off.

Seventeen-32 seeds Nick Lawliss (St. Joseph Montvale), Evan Liou (Toms River North), and Luke Patelsky (Pascack Hills) were upset. Patelsky was defeated by Alan Sun of Holmdel in the first round in a 10-point tiebreaker, 0-6, 6-1, (10-6). The first two sets were polar opposites, and anything can happen in a 10-point tiebreaker.

Lawliss was beaten by Thomas Schottland of Sparta, the first champions at the Hunterdon/Warren/Sussex Tournament, 6-4, 6-2, in the second round, while Liou fell to Cameron Scarpati of Delbarton, 6-2, 7-5 . Scarpati was the second singles flight winner at the Morris County Tournament.
