“I feel pretty good,” he said. “My day’s over now. I get to go home.”

Delaney gave credit to Hart’s abilities.

“Regardless of the outcome, I thought it went well,” he said. “I give him credit. He’s a great player. Kudos to him.”

The two players went through a series of prelims and semifinals that occurred over a span of three hours prior to the match.

Delaney’s semifinal lasted an hour and a half with him narrowly winning, 6-4.

“I’ve been playing tennis almost four years now,” he said. “My goal is to be a professional tennis player, so I play with my heart and soul at every chance I get.”

Hart, a more seasoned competitor with 23 years of experience, swept both his prelim and semifinal, 6-0.

When asked why he signed up for the tournament, Hart said he “thought why not give it a shot, see who’s playing and have some fun with it.”
