125 entries enjoy Warm Springs Tennis Open

Perry, Haggstrom capture men’s doubles

Tournament director Mark Scribner was happy with the big turnout of 125 entries for last weekend’s 15th annual Warm Springs Open holiday tennis tournament in Ketchum.

"It’s the highest turnout we’ve had for several years," said Scribner. And there was some good tennis played during the three-day tournament sponsored by Warm Springs Tennis Club and Sturtevants.

Warm Springs pro David Perry, the 1999 holiday champion who hails from Jerome, regained the men’s Open singles crown with a 6-3, 6-2 championship match triumph over Mark Fuller of Twin Falls.

Experience and his tough serve-return helped Perry tame the youth and enthusiasm of Fuller.

Perry won a pair of Idaho High School State Class B boys’ singles championships for Jerome in 1991 and 1992 and led the Tigers to the state title in 1992. Fuller is headed to Boise State University after winning the State A-1 boys’ doubles title for Twin Falls High in May.

In men’s Open doubles, David Perry teamed with fellow Warm Springs pro Kurt Haggstrom for a 6-2, 6-1 victory over a pair of promising youngsters, Bryant Jones and Jake Berrichoa.

Haggstrom has now won seven of the last eight Warm Springs Open doubles championships, most of them with Scribner.

There were 72 singles entries plus 67 doubles teams in the 16 classes. That’s quite an increase over the 45 singles entries and 44 doubles teams at the 2000 Fourth of July meet.

Next up at Warm Springs Tennis Club, with a similar non-sanctioned format, is the 2001 Labor Day tournament Aug. 31 through Sept. 3. All entries must be received by Wednesday, Aug. 29.
