Haynes star of the night
ABIGAIL HAYNES became an instant fan favourite when she defeated Margo Lorde in straight games in the lone women’s match when the Silver Hill Road Tennis Tournament continued on Thursday night.
Haynes was cool and collected in winning 21-9, 21-18 and the level of play was much appreciated by the road tennis hungry fans who turned out at the Silver Hill hardcourt. She hardly looked troubled in this match, not even when she was trailing 11-16 in the second game.
Stig Merritt was just as clinical in his match against Corey Mayers and won 21-13, 21-6 while Julian “Michael Jackson” White also recorded an easy 21-11, 21-15 victory over Leon Carter.
