Top seeds crash out of mixed doubles
Davis Cup captain Damien Applewhaite and 14-year-old St Michael School student Serena Bryan ousted No. 1 seeds Russell Moseley and Melena Lopez in a thrilling night of mixed doubles semi-finals clashes when the ICBL Open Senior Tennis Championships continued on Tuesday night at the National Tennis Centre, Wildey.
The net system on Court 1 broke before the start of the night’s fixtures, and the matches were moved to Court 2.
That proved to be a bad omen, not only for the No. 1 team of former singles champions Lopez and Moseley, but also for the No. 2 pair of Hannah Chambers and Ryan Moseley.
Chambers and Ryan were defeated by the third-seeded team of Gabrielle Leslie and Stephen Slocombe 1-6, 4-6. (KB)
