Tennis Report, Round 3 Summer 2018

FROM CAPTAIN OF TENNIS, MARKO DUNDOVIC

The third round of summer season saw an improved Waverley team, as Waverley played St Aloysius achieving some great results. With an intense week at training the Waverley boys were able to pick up some form.

The St Aloysius 1sts and 2nds team were an unstoppable force winning in both teams 7 sets to 1. Despite the disappointing results one of Waverley’s most experienced players Will Durkin was able to achieve an astonishing result in the 1st winning 6 games to 2. Waverley’s young talent Charlie Farrington triumphed in his match 6 to 2. Unfortunately, Waverley’s 3rds and 4ths lost, although there was a huge improvement from the previous week as Matthew Gallagher and Sam Markert were able to get up in their doubles 6 games to 4. Matthew Gallagher’s fine form continued, winning his singles in a 6 to 3 masterclass. Dylan Smith and Vassilios Pairidis also fought a tough battle coming out victors 6 sets to 4. Dylan Smith also accomplished a terrific win smashing his opponent 6 games to 2. The 10A’s pulled off an astonishing result with Massimo Di Napoli, Will Jensen and Nathan Barry all came out victors in the A’s. The B’s were quite unlucky losing 8 sets to love although all of the matches were quite close.

The 9As and Bs also continued Waverley’s new and improved form accomplishing some extraordinary result. The 9A’s star player of the day was Alex Morris winning 6 games to 1 in his match as well as a superb victory in his doubles match 6 to 2. The B’s achieved an outstanding result thrashing their opponents 34 games to 16 with Aidan Trovato, Cuba Kanakis and Jared Garwood achieving victories in their matches. The 9Cs were able to get a good result in their matches 36 games to 2 in the C’s and 29 games to 11. While Harry Fox toppled his opponent 6 games to 0 in a dominating performance.

The 8As and Bs once again asserted their dominance over Weekend defeating their opponents in some fantastic matches. Oliver Schai, Kai Jones, Connor Joyce and Jack Preller all demolished their opposition only dropping 1 games between them. Archie small and Joseph and Cumpston also won in dominating fashion in the D in both their singles and Doubles.

After a tough start to the season the boys have been able to set a strong foundation for the rest of the season achieving these great results.
