Chambers in smashing form
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)
