Jon Guida Blocked His Way to the AVP Tour

jon-guida-avp-chicagoWell, it happens to by my birthday today, but that’s not the good news.  Jon Guida took all my online advice {sarcasm}, from my blog, Blocking to the AVP Tour, and qualified for the AVP Tour.  I wish I could take the credit, but it’s all Jon.

Yup, he and Jake Elliot out of Charleston, SC beat the #1 Qualifying Team, William Chenowith and Matt Henderson, during the qualifying rounds and won the qualifying tournament.  Lucky for them because they were introduced to the AVP Tour by playing Olympic Gold Medalists Phil Dalhausser and Todd Rogers in their opening round.  We won’t mention the 7 and 11 scores against Phil and Todd, but how about their second round match in the contender’s bracket?!?!  Against #17 seeded Jonathan Acosta and Joey Dykstra, they took them to three sets and lost in the final set 15 – 13.  Bravo to Jon and Jake.  I hope they got a taste of the yellow and black prime time and have the urge to return.

  1. Hey Chuck!
    To be honest, we can’t take ALL the credit! Your tips and insight was a huge help in getting through the qualifier into the main draw. I think next on the list will be “big-man defense… playing like a little-guy” ha! Thanks again for everything, Chuck! It made a HUGE difference in our play!
