Vickery routs Loeb to win First Annual Central Coast Pro Tennis Open

Sachia Vickery needed just over one hour to beat fellow 22-year-old Jamie Loeb, 6-1, 6-2, and become the first-ever singles champion as the inaugural Central Coast Pro Tennis Open came to a close on Sunday.

Controlling the points and displaying precision shot-making from both the forehand and the two-handed backhand side, No. 4 seeded Vickery watched as a Loeb forehand sailed wide on the final point in the $60,000 USTA Women’s Pro Circuit event played at the Templeton Tennis Ranch. Vickery looked toward coaches Matt Evans and Chris Howard in jubilation before meeting the No. 8-seeded Loeb at the net. It was the third career USTA Pro Circuit title for Vickery and first at this level having previously won two $25,000-level events.
