Zane Navratil goes undefeated in Cincy and finally captures the elusive triple crown. Will he be leaving with a key to the city? a statue at the park? That's still undecided but he will definitely be leaving with confidence and the hot hand heading into the biggest APP Tour event this year, the New York City Open starting May 25.
Navratil teamed up with Jade Kawamoto of Friday for gold in mixed doubles. Kawamoto ran it back the next day taking gold in women's doubles with Michelle Esquivel.
The men's doubles final was canceled due to storms rolling in on Saturday evening. Navratil and Andrei Daescu were scheduled for a rematch against DJ Young and Mario Barrientos who they defeated in the winner's bracket final.
The teams reached an agreement that awarded Navratil and Daescu the gold.
