Road tennis finals tonight
Can the winningest road tennis player Julian “Michael Jackson” White stop the explosive Antonio “Lil Man” Daniel to claim the top prize of $2 000 in tonight’s dream finals of the third Silver Hill Road Tennis Championship?
While White will want to finally add the Silver Hill title to his impressive CV of 38 championships, the new Silver Hill hero Daniel will bring his signature fire to maintain the heat which saw him ousting the former king Mark “Venom” Griffith to deny the latter a three-peat.
In six meetings, White holds a 4-2 advantage which will be as meaningless as anyone who turns up at Silver Hill after the seven o’clock start hoping to get a prime viewing spot. The fans have been turning out in droves and the players have been responding with top drawer action.
The lead up to the “A” class finals will be just as exciting and entertaining with 12-year-old St George Secondary School student Nicholas “Nik-Nik” Ellis looking to topple another “Goliath” when he meets the 2013 champion Adrian Walker. With a racquet rivalling his weight and size Ellis has stunned much bigger and older opponents to reach his second such finals.
The Under 21 finals will showcase the future of road tennis with the flamboyant Dario Hinds meeting the highly focused Emar Edwards whose solid play will be tested by the shots repertoire of Hinds. (KB)
