From a field of 68 boys and 37 girls, it all came down to two final matches on Saturday at the United States Tennis Association NorCal Sectional 18-and-under Tournament. The matches were played at the Berkeley Tennis Club. 

In the girls’ final, eighth-seeded Jenna Long of Fremont came back from losing the first set to upset top-seeded Alexandra Podkolzina of Concord, 5-7, 6-3, 6-3. 

In the boys’ final, No. 5 Pramod Dabir used a powerful serve and punishing groundstrokes to down fourth-seeded Darrin Cohen, 6-2, 6-4. Dabir, a Saratoga native, was only broken once in the match.
