Winning never gets old. Roald Flater never seems to either.
Flater, 83, took home his fifth gold ball May 10 following a three-set victory to win the U.S. National Indoor Championship’s 80-and-up division in Vancouver, Wash.
“I was surprised,” the longtime Evergreen resident and member of the Colorado tennis hall of fame said. “Probably my best win I’ve ever had.”
And that’s saying a lot for a man that has quietly been making a racquet around the country and world for decades.
