Tennis season nears end
The Pro Tennis Academy (PTA) will host its second last tournament of the season this weekend with exciting action promised to go down on the fields of the Windhoek High School in the capital.
In the midi category Arnaud Marais is the player to beat. The youngster leads the log with 4200 points, followed by Eila Kambonde and Sameul Mayinoti tied in second place with 3600. Both are still very much in the running for the overall win come November as the winner of each event collects 1000 points.The trio is poised to fight out the overall win among themselves.
In other action Mike Kambonde secured his third win in a row in the boy’s intermediate division during last month’s event. Yet, because of his slow start to the season, Kambonde currently lies only in third in the overall ranking behind Christopher Jansen Randel Kavandje.
The intermediate will most likely see Delicia Dirkse and Faith Kahuure continuing their impressive two horse race which has been going on ever since the beginning of the year. Dirkse came out on top of her rival and needs to keep the momentum going to keep Kahuure, who is not far behind her in the log, at bay.
The log-leader of the advanced category, Cleet Farmer, currently enjoys a 5800 point lead at the top and is expected to take home the overall win come next month. During the last tournament, however, he lost out to Godwin Husselmann who is now full of confidence going into this weekend’s event.
The Mini Category is an all family affair with Vaniah Mumba leading over Jaedyn Mumba with a mere 400 points.
