Darian King, 24, of Barbados defeated American Michael Mmoh, 18, to win the Tiburon Challenger singles on Sun., Oct. 2, and earn his third title of 2016. “I’m from a small island where this never really happens. I hope to be back next year,” said King.
An Australian flag hanging courtside was a good omen for Matt Reid, 26, and John-Patrick Smith, 27, the pair of Aussies who won the doubles championship “It’s one of the most incredible tournaments to play in. It’s a pleasure to be here,” said Smith.
At the conclusion of competition, the Tiburon Challenger presented a check for $5,000 to the Foundation for Reed Schools, $5,000 to the USTA Norcal Foundation to support programs for children in underserved areas and $2,500 to the Rotary Club of Tiburon-Belvedere for its education programs.
