Juniors end 4th and 7th
- Updated: October 3, 2011
Our boys and girls tennis teams ended fourth and seventh respectively at the Junior Davis Cup and Junior Fed Cup competitions completed in Mexico at the weekend.
The boys went down 2-0 to sixth-seeded France in the third/fourth place play-off while the women beat Germany 2-0 in the seventh place play-off at the respective venues in San Luis Potosi.
In both cases the doubles competition wasn’t played due to the nature of the score.
In the boys’ defeat Theo Ferreira went down 6-3 6-2 to Quintin Halys while Wayne Montgomery also lost in straight sets, going down 6-4 6-2 to Alexandre Favrot. In the girls’ victory, Ilze Hattingh beat Antonia Lottner 6-4 6-2 while Lynn Kiro accounted for Sonja Larsen in three sets, 6-1 5-7 6-2.
