At ten years old, Hannah Chambers is already playing the big shots.

​Chambers was in red-hot form last weekend at the National Tennis Centre, as she earned the Under-12 title in the Fortress/Nassco Junior Series.

​Chambers defeated Amelia Dickson 8-6, while Ilana Blackwood earned the Under-16 title, defeating her long-time rival Jaimie Lewis 6-4, 6-2.

​In boys action, James McKenzie had a comfortable 8-2 win over Stephen Slocombe in the semi-finals but was defeated by Lukas Gosselin 8-4 in the Under-12 finale.

​Gosselin will play with Aren Spencer against McKenzie and Brandon Morris in the doubles finals when action continues later this week.

​Favourite Xavier Lawrence continued his winning streak with a 6-1, 6-3 semi-final win over Romani Mayers and a 6-2, 6-0 win over Jadon Brome in the Under-16 final.

​Brome defeated the No. 2 seed Kyle Frost 7-5, 4-6, 7-5 in an epic battle in which Frost came out playing very attacking tennis but made some unforced errors and found himself trailing 5-7, 0-4, 0-40. 

​He then mounted a comeback to win 6 straight games and the second set. 

​The match then came down to the wire with Frost serving at 5-5 in the third. However, it was Brome who held his nerve and found the shots to close out the match. 

​Brome will play with Mayers against Frost and Robert Hayden in the Under-16 doubles final. (PR)
