5 PLAYERS (& A KEEN SUPPORTER) TAKE OVER SUTTON SV COUNTY TOUR!
2nd February 2019
Tennis Unito had 5 players in the 1 day 12&U Surrey County Tour event at Sutton Sports Village. We also had Srinidhi as a keen supporter for the day, even though she wasn't entered - truly living our value of unity!
In the girls event, Lana Allport displayed real bravery and courage in tight moments in her 1st round win, a close 4-3 4-3. Lana looked relaxed in both tie-breaks, hitting some great winners and closing down the net well in the crucial points. In her next 2 matches the opponents were too good but Lana can be proud of the way she overcame nerves and produced her best tennis in her first match.
In the boys event, all 4 of our players won their first round matches to make it an all Unito semi finals! Maxime and Sami ended up playing for 3/4th, narrowly losing in final set tie breaks to Kurt & Liam respectively. The final, surprise surprise, went to another final set tie break! Liam managed to get the win, fully deserved after beating a player ranked over 400 places above him in the first round and getting through back to back 3 setters.
All 5 players showed great attitudes and respect for each other, it's never easy competing against your friends but they did really well, making all of us at Tennis Unito proud.
We are all keeping our fingers crossed for the weather so we can continue improving this week.
