WOMENS DOUBLES FINAL
EMILY PEAKE /CAROLINA PENA-Y- LILO DEFEATED KRISTA OATES / SARAH BUNTING 6/4 6/4
Most matches in this event were close results and the final was another one with break points in several games which could have resulted in a 3 setter. The finalists are all friends and the match was played in good spirit. However there can only be one winning pair so congratulations to Emily and Carolina.
MENS SINGLES FINAL
CAMERON GREEN DEFEATED ANDREW RIMINTON 3/6 6/3 6/4
The big crowd that came to watch this match was not disappointed as the standard was very high with Cameron finally winning in three long sets. Again the sportsmanship shown throughout the tournament was on display after the match as Andrew was a very gracious loser. Cameron Green now has won the title for the first time and will have his name on the Championship Board.The trophy was presented to Cameron by seven time Club Champion in Kenny Grey who praised the standard of the tennis.
MENS DOUBLES FINAL
SEAN WHITE / JONO WALKER DEFEATED CAMERON GREEN / TODD MALONEY 6/2 2/6 6/2
There was a rumour that Sean White may not be able to play the final as he cut his foot badly earlier.
However he had a physio strap it up for him and was determined to beat the pain and his opponents.
He and Jono managed to do this in three sets to clinch the title. A great effort.
OPEN MIXED DOUBLES
MARIA NICOL/ANDREW RIMINTON DEFEATED SARAH BUNTING/ JONO WALKER 6/2 6/1
This match was played under lights as the matches before ran overtime.
Maria our junior played along side her coach in Andrew and played better in every match.
She was outstanding in this final match to lead the way to their victory in straight sets. There could be many Mixed Titles to come for this pairing in future years. Sarah and Jono had previous matches on the day and could not really challenge the winners. Maria and Andrew won all their three matches in straight sets.
A MENS DOUBLES FINAL
MATTHEW CURTIS/BEDE KIRWAN DEFEATED DANIEL RODRIGUES/ ALAN BOURCHARD 1/6 6/1 10/6
This should be renamed A Boys Doubles as the the two juniors defeated all the men to win the title in their first year together. After a slow start the boys showed their maturity by changing tactics to take out the next two sets. An excellent effort for a 13 year old an an almost 13 year old. There are great days ahead for these two. Daniel and Alan had a good tournament also but just fell short on the day.
There were lots of photos taken on the day and will appear on our website manlylawn.com.au
A giant thank you to Denis our Club Captain for organising this years Club Championships. Another thank you to Milton and Jon who organised the food on Saturday afternoon and to all those who assisted them.
