Congratulations to William Gee and Joseph Richards who played some great tennis to reach the final of the 9U draw at the Crowborough Junior Open.
To win through both boys had to play in a round robin against five other lads before gaining their place in the semi final. Joseph played consistently throughout the day to beat all his opponents whilst Will played really well only losing out to Otto Sargeant. With the best runner up going through Will and Joseph both secured their place in the semi's
In the semi's Will faces Max Sanchez whilst Joseph was drawn against Otto Sargeant. With a place in the final in their sights both Appeti Lads dug deep and produced some brilliant points with Will seeing off Max 7-5, 7-5 and Joseph winning through 7-2, 7-3 to beat Otto
The final was always going to be a close affair with both boys evenly matched and keen to walk away with the winners medal however after a great nail biting finish Will just edged ahead to take the glory beating Joseph 8-6, 5-7, 7-5.
Well done to both lads on a great finish to your day and particularly to Will on your second Grade 4 win of the week!
