NEWPORT BEACH — "¿Dónde está Ramón?" a Newport Beach resident called the Daily Pilot office to ask Tuesday night, upset that the Newport Beach Breakers didn't retain their six-year veteran, Ramon Delgado.
Cyndie Borcoman's question in English is "Where is Ramon?," and he is playing with Philadelphia this summer. But she didn't go to their home opener against the Sacramento Capitals.
If she did, she might have taken a liking to his replacement.
Lester Cook made quite a splash in his home opener with the team. He topped Sacramento's Dusan Vemic, 5-2, in the final set to help the Breakers secure a 20-18 victory over the Capitals before a near-capacity crowd at The Tennis Club Newport Beach.
Newport Beach, which also topped Sacramento, 24-16, on the road in its season opener on Monday, improved to 2-0 and is alone in first place in the Western Conference.
Men's singles was again the last match of the night for the Breakers, and this time Cook did his best Delgado impression.
