Playlist of the elimination matches that Robert Gardos played at Westchester TT club.  There are edited versions of the finals and semifinals elsewhere on youtube, but not of the R16 and the QF AFAIK.

Gardos is an amazing player for them to get at their tournament! Congrats to him and Westchester for attracting such big names to a local club tournament.

A different camera angle (and commentary) of the finals here.

I considered running for USATT member at large but decided to remain a USATT large member.

what a great angle and camera height!
I have the certainty the web is key for tt development, that's how we started back in the beginning of the internet when we were roaming to find those low quality videos that made us feel like big winners when we were not rick rolled.
I can't wait for bandwidth and cameras to become so inexpensive and idiot proof an ordinary table at a no name club will feature 4 cameras or more to choose from for the home viewers, for example to see better a left handed server when the only camera is oriented to best watch a right handed one, to see the game from a different height depending the tastes etc...

Good job and CORRECT camera placement for two right-handed players.

Question: how is Westchester TTC getting these international players to come? I remember seeing Andrej Gacina a few years ago and now Robert Gardos.  Ok, I know it's silly because the answer is money.  But it's gotta be more than the tournament winnings.  Maybe a free plane ticket? An appearance fee? Paid seminar or lesson during the visit? Regardless, good job Westchester TTC!

My impression is that these are more of serendipity appearances: folks happen to be visiting New York and, hey, decent chance of taking $2K prize. Having some connections to local Slovenian, Croatian, Hungarian diaspora probably helps to bring players like Tokic, Gacina, Primorac, Pucar etc. Sometimes they did clinic (but these were not super useful IMHO), but not always.

Some Westchester folks are on this forum, please correct my thinking.
