FROM CAPTAIN OF TENNIS, MARKO DUNDOVIC
The second round of the summer season saw another difficult matchup between Waverley and Knox who asserted their dominance across all teams. Despite the tough losses the Waverley boys must be mindful that they faced the strongest CAS tennis team.
The Knox 1sts and 2nds team were a relentless force winning in both teams 8 games to 0. Despite the poor results one of Waverley’s up and coming talents, Kosta Micos was able to achieve an astonishing result narrowly losing in a tie breaker 7-6.
Unfortunately, Waverley’s miseries continued in 3rds and 4ths fixtures as Waverley was unable to achieve any victories going down 6-0 in both the 3rds and 4ths.
It was a tough day at the office for the 10a’s and Bs, with both teams suffering heavy defeats from their opponents, with both teams going down 6 sets to 0 at the hands of Knox team. Despite this Nathan Barry was able to achieve a decent result losing his match 6 games to 3.
The 9As and Bs also were extremely unfortunate to lose 6 sets to 0 in both teams although the results were much closer and displayed the Waverley fighting spirit. Jared Garwood and Cuba Kanakis were unlucky to come out with a 5-7 defeat in their nail-biting doubles defeat. Aidan Trovato and Jimmy Ashbridge were unlucky in their matches narrowly both losing 6 sets to 4.
Although the many defeats across the year groups, once again Waverley prevailed in the 8A’s a B’s with superb victories across the board, despite the extremely difficult opposition. Conor Joyce demolished his opponent in fine fashion coming out victorious 6 sets to 0. Oliver Schai, Jack Preller and Archie all also picked up superb victories in their matches leading Waverley to a 30 to 22 game victory in the A’s. The b’s also displayed their talent although they were all defeated in narrow margins.
After playing undoubtedly some of the toughest opponents in CAS tennis, the Waverley boys will be focusing on achieving better results in the next weeks match up’s when returning to training this week.
