Tennismania part 2

Tennis certainly was the winner on the weekend. Saturday being one of the best days tennis seen at the club for many years. Next Saturday should be even better with Four Finals on Court 1 beginning at noon .

The full draw and summary will be published on Thursday.

Sofie Sullivan is now a Four Time Ladies Open Champion after defeating Emily Peake in a titanic struggle 3-6 6-1 7-6. The match could have gone either way but Sofie was the eventual winner and pocketed $200 tax free for her efforts. Emily had to settle for $100. Congratulations to both ladies for their effort and sportsmanship.

Two Mens semis were next to be played with Cameron Green defeating Bosko Novakovic 7-6 6-2

and Andrew Riminton defeating Sean White 6-4 6-3.
