Grand finals fun!

Week ten and our winter 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 few of our selected highlights.

TamaPerth North, Division 4 – Ben Latham vs Tama Wharepouri (pictured) – 6-2, 2-6, 7-5

Both these players went into the grand final unbeaten after the regular season.  A great match played over a couple of days going right to the wire!

“What a great final! An overnight rain delay at 6-2 1-1, then a second rain delay at 6-2 2-6 4-4. Tama is a great opponent. We’re planning on partnering up for a doubles comp next year.” Ben Latham

Sydney Parramatta, Division 1 – Jazib Ansari vs Harsh Patil – 6-4, 4-6, 6-4

A top of the table clash with two players at the top of their games after both winning 6 matches in division 1 of our Parramatta Tennis League. Jazib coming out after 3 really close sets of intense tennis.

“This is how a final match should be. We both have heavy groundstrokes and fortunately I came out as the winner. Perfect end to the competition for me. Jazib

GianvitoSydney Central, Division 1 – Gianvito D’Onghia (pictured) vs Stefan Jarnason – 6-4, 7-5

Gianvito played a titanic three set battle in the regular season, Stefan coming out on top 5-7, 6-3, 6-4. However, Gianvito turned the tables in this final, winning the first set and then staging an almighty comeback from 0-5 down in the second set.

“Great final against Stefan! It was really tough to beat him (6-4, 7-5), in particular in the second set when he was leading 5-0 and I had an amazing come back! I’m really happy because is the second tournament in row that I won!” Gianvito

Congratulations to everyone above and to all our grand finalists 🙂
