Holder within Touch of three-peat

KIM HOLDER, Barbados’ top female road tennis player, will be going after the three-peat when the Barbados Public Workers Cooperative Credit Union Touch Of Class third edition climaxes tomorrow night at the Deighton “Pa” Roach Tennis Centre in Bush Hall.

With the great man Roach, this year’s patroness Veta Batson and a large crowd looking on, Holder was pure class in dismissing Rachel Smith 21-14, 21-12 on Monday night.

Smith, who has been on the wrong end of many clashes, including finals against Holder, seemed to be in with a chance when she battled back to match her opponent at 12 in both games. 

However, the power and skills of Holder proved superior as Smith, who had surged from 2-9 in the second game, meekly surrendered as Holder scored nine unanswered points. (KB)
