Grand finals fun!

Week ten and our summer season is now finished, with grand finals taking place across the last week and this one. Thank you to everyone for being part of our tennis community and making Oz Tennis Leagues what it is.

Grand final highlights 

Plenty of great match ups to pick from, however, here’s a couple of our selected highlights.

Jorge NavaAdelaide, Division 1 – Martin Davey vs Jorge Nava (pictured) – 0-6, 6-4, 6-1

A absolute up and down game with three very contrasting sets!

“Jorge blasted me off the court in the first set. I was shell shocked on a hard court having played most of the summer on grass.

 

The second set was much closer, I snuck it 6-4 with it being 4-4 at one stage. Jorge made a lot more unforced errors in the 3rd set allowing me to get control. Three very different sets!” Martin

Brisbane South, Division 1 – Andrew Holden vs Greg Davis (both pictured) – 6-1, 3-6, 7-5

A top of the table clash with two players at the top of their games after both winning 7 matches in division 1 of our Brisbane South Tennis League. Andrew coming out after 3 really close sets of intense tennis.

Andrew and Greg, Brisbane South Tennis League“That was EPIC!!!!

 

Greg and I met for the first time in the final with 7-0 win loss records for the season, and served up a fitting finale. Although it didn’t seem like it, after I controlled the first set to get a 6-1 start.

 

It was tight early in the second, with Greg becoming more aggressive in his play, then taking control of the match winning 6 straight games to claim the second set 6-3, and skipping to a 2-0 lead in the third.

 

After I levelled it up at 2-all, it became a big arm wrestle with long deuce games galore and multiple opportunities for each of us to win each game. I had several set points across several games, but Greg kept me out to get it to 5-all.

 

A last fatigued push near the two hour mark (with no long rests), got me over the line 7-5 in the last, in what was the most competitive match that I can remember playing, while played in good spirits.

 

These sorts of matches are the reason that I joined this league. Thanks Oz Tennis, and thanks Greg.” Andrew

Congratulations to everyone above and to all our grand finalists 🙂
