From Convenor of Tennis, Cassandra Attard
Round 2 proved difficult for the majority of the Waverley Tennis squadron, with Cranbrook showcasing a notable improvement since the end of the summer season. Despite this, there were still plenty of outstanding performances throughout each of the teams.
The Opens, who were missing two key players, struggled to find any rhythm against Cranbrook, with only one triumph across the board. This came in the 1sts, as Nikita Nikitenko won 6-0 in a victory that contrasts the rest of the day’s results. The 2nds, 3rds and 4ths were unfortunate not to win any sets, although they should be commended for their efforts, as many players were playing in higher teams due to the absences in the 1sts.
Year 10 has put in another considerable effort to win in both the A’s (5 sets to 1) and B’s (4 sets to 2), staying undefeated so far this season. Valentius Wrjana from the 10A’s denied his opponent a singular game in his singles match, winning 6-0. In the 10B’s, Sebastian Watson delivered a tennis masterclass, also winning his singles 6-0. On top of that, Dion Sinodinos is yet to concede a game this season in both his singles and doubles, winning 6-0 in all matches so far.
The results from the Year 7 and 8 teams resembled that of the Opens, with only one set being taken from the opposition. Well done to Nicholas Kimber, who won 6-3 in his singles to secure the sole victory of the junior teams.
As the season unravels, the Year 10 teams are demonstrating their prowess, whilst the rest of the teams are still looking to find the form coming into the third round matchup against Barker College.
