The 5th round of the season saw another tough matchup for the Waverley as they faced a much-improved Trinity side. Despite the tough match-up Waverley was able to achieve some decent results across the year groups.
The 1sts and 2nds were meet with a strong and improved Trinity team proved too strong for the Waverley boys. Both of the 1sts doubles pairing, Marko Dundovic/Oliver Ruse and Oscar Madden/Nikita Nikitenko, faced a tough opening set in the doubles, however, they were able to improve in the second set, narrowly both losing 6-4. Noah Kathriner was also unlucky not to come away with a victory, barely losing 6-4 in his singles. However, Waverley’s closest result came in the 3rds with Eoin Morrissey losing in a nail-biting tie-breaker 7-6.
Despite some of the disappointing results in the 1sts, 2nds and 3rds, the 9as and 9bs team were able to achieve some excellent results with Charley Roberts and Ronnie Roth winning there doubles match 6-4, as well as Tobias Unsworth and Edward Regan who won there doubles 6-4. Furthermore, Cuba Kanakis and Edward Regan overcame their tough Trinity opponents to win 6-4 in both their singles matches. The 8as and 7as both suffered heavy defeats across the board, losing 6 sets to 0 in both year groups.
The 5th round of the season saw a challenging matchup against a strong Trinity side who proved too strong for Waverley. With a week of no Tennis, the boys can relax and rest for a short break, coming back refreshed and ready to go next week at training.
