USTA National Senior Women's Hard Court Tennis Championships

Buholz Breezes Past Erin Boynton, 6-1, 6-0, in One Hour at La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club

La Jolla, Calif. - (May 20, 2012) – Fifth-seeded Vicki Buholz of Dallas, Texas won the Women's 50s Consolation Singles title at the USTA National Senior Women's Hard Court Championships as she easily defeated unseeded Erin Boynton of Toronto, Canada, 6-1, 6-0, in one hour.

Earlier in the week, Buholz, a member of the United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA), reached the quarterfinals of the singles main draw where she fell to eventual champion Ros Nideffer in straight sets.

Buholz, who has taught tennis at the T Bar M Racquet Club in Dallas for over 20 years, played solid tennis in dominating the Women's 50s consolation singles final against Boynton, which was played on a cool, partly cloudy morning on Court No. 1.

After holding serve to take a 2-1 lead in the first set, Buholz began mixing up her shots and went on to win 16 of the next 20 points to put away the first set in 33 minutes.

In the second set, Buholz continued her steady play as she kept Boynton from finding her rhythm and getting back into the match. With a 5-0, Buholz easily served out the match.

"I'm excited. It feels great. I prepared well and I did a good job of mixing it up," Buholz said after her victory. "I kept the ball low and kept her out of her rhythm."

As she was well aware that Boynton rallied from a set down to win her consolation semifinal match on Saturday, Buholz was careful not to lose her intensity and concentration after winning the first set.

"Everybody here is a fighter. Anything can slip, so you have to play each point with intensity," Buholz said. "I tried to really focus on each point.
