Waters, Parenteau continue doubles dominance

Waters, Parenteau continue doubles dominance

FARMERS BRANCH, TX - Anna Leigh Waters and Catherine Parenteau hadn't lost a doubles match together going into Sunday’s women’s final at Nationals.

And they still haven’t.

The pair were flawless again when the stakes were at their highest, earning an 11-7, 11-0, 11-4 victory over sixth-seeded sisters Mary and Maggie Brascia.

It marked the duo's eighth gold medal so far this season.

Parenteau credits their remarkable dominance in the discipline to the complementary offensive and defensive skill sets that allow them to play so freely.

“A lot of the time, I'll just move the ball around until she puts it away,” Parenteau revealed. “Or sometimes, I'll start speeding it up first and then she can clean it up.”

Parenteau also acknowledges the role that both her and Waters' support systems play in their overall success.

“We have Leigh Waters (Anna Leigh’s mother) and my partner Athena, and they always give us a really good game plan,” she explained.
