05 Jan TEAM JENSENS ROARS BACK
After Team Bryans raced out to a 2-0 lead Monday in ATP Champions Tour action at the Delray Beach by VITACOST.com, Team Jensens stormed back Tuesday, thanks in large part to Jesse Levine.
The Canadian left-hander won in singles and doubles to even the score, but a late rally by Wayne Ferreira and Mikael Pernfors gives Team Bryans a 3-2 lead heading into the final day of play.
Levine partnered with Tommy Haas Tuesday afternoon to put the first points on the board for Team Jensens with a 6-1 6-2 win over Ferreira & Pernfors.
Levine turned around just hours later and outlasted Robby Ginepri 4-6 6-3 (7-0) in the first singles match of the Champions Tour event
In their only meeting at an ATP Tour event, Levine also won in three sets during qualifying at Washington, D.C. in 2012.
The nightcap saw Ferreira and Pernfors back on court to take on Team Jensens captains Luke and Murphy Jensen. The South African and Swedish duo dropped the opening set, but rallied to win in three sets, 4-6 7-5 (7-4).
The Champions Tour event concludes Wednesday with Ferreira taking on Haas in singles followed by a battle of the team captains as Bob and Mike Bryan will play the Jensens.
