Weekend Round Up - Ugalde, Cardona, Rios & Alvarez winners

Jose Daniel Ugalde was the surprise winner of the New Jersey Open Men's Open division. Surprise winner, because he was the 8th seed, but the whole draw was a bit mixed up as of the top four seeds only 4th seed Sean Klingaman made the semi-finals.

Ugalde defeated 6th seed Joseph Palazzo in the final, 15-8, 15-6. In the semis, Ugalde defeated Klingaman, 15-9, 15-5, and Palazzo beat 7th seed Jonathan Justice, 15-13, 2-15, 11-10.

In the Men's Open Doubles division final, Fernando Rios and Jose Daniel Alvarez beat Klingaman and Jonathan Clay, 14-15, 15-11, 11-9. Rios and Alvarez beat Shai Manzuri and Fabian Pedraza in the semi-finals, 15-9, 15-9, while Clay and Klingaman defeated Thomas Carter and Alec Wasilonsky, 15-7, 15-10.
