FROM CAPTAIN OF TENNIS, MARKO DUNDOVIC
The fourth round of the tennis season was a display of masterclass from the Waverley Team as Waverley was able to achieve many victories in all of the year groups against Cranbrook.
The firsts and seconds saw a huge improvement in doubles gameplay as Patrick Smith and Will Durkin were able to breeze past their double’s opponents winning 6 sets to 3 and 6 sets to 4 in the 1st doubles team. Nikita and Morson were also victorious in their respective matches, triumphing 6 sets to 2 and 7 sets to 5 in their match. Will Durkin once again proved he is force to reckoned with, winning his game 6 sets to 1. These victories saw the 1st team achieve a stunning victory, winning 5 sets to 3. The 2nds team were quite unlucky in their matches, narrowly losing all of their singles games, although the boys were able to snatch a draw in both doubles’ fixtures.
Unfortunately, Waverley’s 3rds and 4ths lost to a in-form Cranbrook team 6 sets to 0 in both games. Finn Warren was very unlucky narrowly losing his match in a tie breaker 7 sets to 6 and James Ritchie was also close losing 6 sets to 4.
The 10As and 10Bs were also able to achieve great results on the court. Oscar madden demolished his opponent in a 6 games to 2 masterclass match. Nathan Barry and Will Jensen once again proved their dominance winning convincingly 6 games to 3 in their doubles match. The Bs proved to dominate in their performances winning 28 games to 20, with Diego Berdaa and Dante Pontes- Cox both triumphing in their matches. Noa Kathrina and Dante Pontes-Cox also proved too strong in their doubles winning convincingly 6 games to 0.
The 9As and Bs also continued their fine form accomplishing some extraordinary results. Ronnie Roath and Aidan Trovato both asserted their dominance in their matches both winning 6 games to 1. The pair were also successful in their doubles winning 6 games to 3. The 9Bs once again proved they a force to be reckoned with demolishing Cranbrook 5 sets to 1. Cuba Kanakis, Jared Garwood, Jimmy Ashbridge, Michael Richmond were all successful in their singles with everyone winning. The 9c’s were also successful wining 5 sets to 1.
The 8As and Bs once again asserted their dominance over the weekend defeating their opponents in some fantastic matches. Kai Jones, Connor Joyce and Jack Preller all demolished their opposition all winning in their singles and doubles. The A team won convincingly 5 sets to 1. Archie Small, Joseph Cumpston and Bellino Testafredda also won their singles and doubles matches, meaning the 8bs came away victors 5 sets to 1.
After a tough start to the season the boys asserted their dominance in plenty of exciting matches against Cranbrook. This has by far Waverley’s best result which will hopefully lead to more good results.
