The 2005 Legg Mason Wild Card Challenge at Sport & Health Clubs showed a changing of the guard in area tennis. Newcomer, Izak van der Merwe, earned the singles title, defeating defending champion, Trevor Spracklin, in straight sets. In the doubles competition, 2004 singles finalist, Matt Scott, and his partner, Joey Atas, avenged previous years’ losses by winning their first championship.

In his first tennis tournament towards a professional career, van der Merwe earned $1,000 and a wild card into the singles qualifying competition of the 2005 Legg Mason Tennis Classic. van der Merwe, a recent graduate of Old Dominion University and an ITA All-American, used his blazing serve on the lightening fast courts at the Arlington Y Tennis & Squash Club to defeat Spracklin, 6-2; 6-2.

Atas and Scott faced stiffer competition in the doubles final. After dropping the first set 4-6 to Clemson teammates, Damiisa Robinson and Nathan Thompson, Atas and Scott rallied to win the second and third sets, 6-3, 7-5. Robinson and Thompson did not go down without a fight, coming back from a 5-2 deficit in the third set. With $2,000 and a wild card into the doubles main draw of the 2005 Legg Mason Tennis Classic on the line, match point proved more than climactic; Atas and Scott pumped fists while Robinson and Thompson could not hide their disappointment.

From information packet distributed to sponsors:
James Blake will receive a wild card into the tournament (if necessary).

USTA National Boys' 18 & 16 Clay Court Championships (July 17-24) results:

The Boys' 18 singles champion [Alexander F. Clayton] will receive a wild card into the main draw at the Legg-Mason Tennis Championships in Washington, DC. In addition the Boys' 18 singles finalist [Attila Bucko] and the Boys' 16 singles champion [Tyler J. Hochwalt] will receive wild cards into the Legg-Mason singles qualifying event.

The Boy's 18 [Andrew B. Orban & Michael D. Venus] and 16 [William F. Guzick & Tyler J. Hochwalt] doubles champions will be put on the “short list” for the singles qualifier of the Legg-Mason Tennis Championships.
