Quality play exhibited at PTA Tennis Series
The mini category saw Eila Kambonde celebrate a successful return to PTA action. She had been in top form throughout the year but missed out on the last tournament which allowed her main rival Jamilla Hungamo to take the lead. This time around Kambonde got the better of Hungamo and won. Hungamo still managed second place to stay in contention for the overall victory. Arnaud Marais made third place.
In the beginner’s category Faith Kahuure and Delicia Dirkse continued their two-way battle. The pair missed out on a win during the third show-piece but made strong comebacks two weeks ago. Kahuure eventually took the first place after a splendid performance, while Dirkse came in second. The two are poised to continue this heated rivalry till the end of the season.
Meanwhile Lorenzo Kotze won the Intermediate division after fighting through stiff competition during the one day event. Alwera Smith managed to hold on to second place with Bronwyn Kavarue in third.
Cleet Farmer was unstoppable in advanced category. The player, who had just been moved to this class up after winning much of the Intermediate category this year, took top honours ahead of Godwin Husselmann and Brandon Maasdorp.
