SAMI WINS 12&U TOURNAMENT, KURT FINISHES 6TH IN REGIONALS
21st January 2019
Sami Sivinov and Kurt Kuka both had good weekends, performing strongly in their respective tournaments.
Despite carrying a slight hamstring injury, Sami managed to win his tournament at the National Tennis Centre without dropping a set. Sami showed solid performance under pressure to win the first set in his final on a sudden death point, going on to win 4-3 4-2.
Kurt played a 12&U Regional Tour at Bromley, winning 2 out of his 4 matches. Despite coming up against some tougher older opposition, he showed great character in his first round, against a much higher ranked opponent, to win the final set tie break 10-8 from 7-4 behind.
For a 10 year old to finish 6th at a 12&U Regional is a great achievement and Kurt was straight back on the practise court at 7.30am on a frosty Monday morning to continue improving!
Well done to both Sami and Kurt, we'll see them both back on court this week.
