    The USTA Hawaii Pacific Men's Night Doubles
    The Oahu Club, Hawaii Kai
    June, 2013

    Men's Open Doubles Finals:
    (4) Hendrik Bode & Pierre Tafelski (wearing white & black)
    vs.
    (2) Ikaika Jobe & Michael Wojnarowicz (wearing white)

    2013 was a special summer as the HawaiiTriple Crown of Men's Tennis (Men's Night Doubles series) had officially become a staple in the Hawaii tennis community. Players now knew that there was not one but three Night Doubles events they could participate in, meaning more opportunities for some high quality tennis matches as a competitor or spectator. From the very first tournament, the tennis was electric as Hawaii's top players turned out to take their shot at the Triple Crown title.

    In the first 2013 event of the series, the USTA Hawaii Pacific Men's Night Doubles moved locations from the University of Hawaii at Manoa (last year's tournament site) to the Oahu Club. Yes, that meant two tournaments in a row would happen on the spongy hard courts of Hawaii Kai. Event number one would not disappoint as Hawaii Pacific University coaching staff members Hendrik Bode & Pierre Tafelski made their run right away. Head coach Hendrik & Assistant Grad Coach Pierre used their experience to battle past team after team, making it all the way to the semi finals in anticipation of a heavy-weight fight for a birth in the championship round. They looked strong & a definite contender for the entire triple crown.
    Their opponents were Oahu Club Teaching Pro Mike Wojnarowicz & multi-time Men's Night Doubles Champion Ikaika Jobe. Bringing the hometown crowd to every match he played, Mike put his effortless strokes & strategies onto full display night after night. His parter Ikaika also landed spectacular volley after spectacular put-away, making these guys a highly entertaining team to watch.
    You could feel it in the air that evening, a big match was about to go down to see who would reach the finals first, Bode/Tafelski or Ikaika/Mike.

    The Blue Moon Kailua Men's Night Doubles
    Kailua Racquet Club, Kailua, HI
    July-August, 2012

    Men's Open Doubles Quarter Finals:
    (8) Alex Aybar & Brandon Lee (wearing black & white)
    vs.
    (2) Mind Le & Wei Yu Su (wearing blue & white)

    2012 was the first year I had the pleasure of filming the entire Triple Crown of Men's Doubles in Hawaii. It was fascinating because you got to see how each doubles (who mostly played together all summer) progressed throughout the events. You would also see doubles teams switch things up sometimes either due to partner schedule conflicts or just wanting to pair up with another player, ultimately to get ready for the Kailua Blue Moon Men's Night Doubles tournament at the end of the Triple Crown.

    In 2012, a fascinating quarter final arose in the Kailua event with Night Doubles youth & experience! One side of the net housed 8th seeds Alex Aybar & Brandon Lee, looking to pull an early upset of the tournament! Alex, a former Arizona Wildcat, brought years of experience, both in the college & the pros (Davis Cup for his country), to the court. Alex also had reached as far as the quarter finals in the Kailua Night Doubles before as well as finaled in the Oahu Club Men's Night Doubles with partner Chaz Okamoto, a warm up tournament prior to the one in this video. His partner, Brandon Lee, was coming off a strong showing in the high school varsity tennis season that Spring. Representing Punahou, Brandon held the #1 rank overall in the HHSAA, claimed an ILH individual championship & made the Finals of the HSAA State Championships in singles, losing only to eventual champion Marcel Chan Jr. Brandon had also participated with Alex Aybar in the University of Hawaii Men's Night Doubles, another warm up tournament prior to Kailua.
    Standing in their way was non other than former 3 time Kailua Night Doubles champions Minh Le & Wei Yu Su. Minh & Wei You also boasted both college & pro experience on the court. Minh, a former UC Berkley player, has gone as far as scoring a singles victory against ATP touring pro Ivo Karlovic (aka Dr. Ivo)! Wei Yu had previously played for Brigham Young University in Hawaii & went on to also play professionally for his country in Davis (similar to Alex Aybar). And, of course, these two have been known to have grabbed 3 Kailua Men's Night Doubles titles 3 years in a row from 2006-2008, giving them a serious experience edge against any opponent they would see together.

    Into the Kailua night sky we played! The audience didn't exactly know what to expect but what we got was a fabulous showing of doubles tennis that evening with these four players!

    The Blue Moon Men's Night Doubles
    Kailua Racquet Club, Kailua (Oahu)
    July - August, 2013

    Main Draw: Finals
    (1) Dennis Lajola & Michael Yani (wearing black/yellow)
    vs.
    (2) Mikael Maatta & Jan Tribler (wearing black/organg)

    The 2013 Blue Moon Men's Night Doubles was a tournament to remember! Perhaps housing the most loaded main draw in recent history, 2013's Triple Crown finale event looked to be a historic championship on paper alone. Once the players took to the court, the tennis did not disappoint!

    Top seeds Dennis Lajola & Michael Yani had come fresh off the ATP Circuit, traveling the world as touring pros (Dennis for 3-5 years & Michael for 10+ years). Both of them were top ranked juniors in the world as well as veterans of division 1 college tennis in their school days (Dennis at University of Hawaii & Michael at Duke University). That all being said, these boys racked up win after win despite being challenged by some of Hawaii's top doubles players to reach the Kailua Night Dubs final. On the other side of the bracket, 2nd seeded team & defending Kailua Night Doubles champions Mikael Maatta & Jan Tribler battled there way through the bracket. Both young & fast teams as well as more experienced & old rival teams took there shot at the former HPU Sharks but to no avail. Mikael & Jan seemed destined to meet the former ATP touring pros in the championship round that year.

    This would be a final that the fans would be buzzing about leading up to the 1st serve on Saturday night!

    Check out highlights from this battle of veterans of the big stage!
