Photo 8: Does Size Matter?  Sam Gouneili, left, and Brian Bacinschi in the Boys' 14 consolation final. Having height can be advantageous, not only on serves but for net play. That's how Brian played. Smaller players often use placement, spin, and their fitness to overcome their opponent. That's how Sam played.  The winner this time was Sam, beating Brian 6-4, 6-4.
