On the court dominance: Young and full of energy, Randel Kavandje in action as he dominated his beginners division

The PTA Tennis Series resumed last weekend after a nearly two month-long break. The lengthy break, however, did not affect the quality of tennis played as the youngsters showed some great action across the two days in Windhoek.
In the Mini category, Stefan Weitz claimed his first win of the season. Weitz went into the tournament as one of the favourites, coming in at second at the last event, and surely lived up to the expectations. The second place went to Zeta Kaises, while Jozikee Tjaimba came in third.
In the beginners division, Randel Kavandje continued his dominance over the rest of the field. The aspiring youngster from Windhoek took the top honours for the fourth time in a row already, making him the overwhelming favourite to win his division of this year’s edition of the PTA Tennis Series. Megano Sheeya had to settle for second while Delicia Dirkse came third. Meanwhile, there was another surprise winner in the Midi category as Mike Kambonde stormed to the top. So far, this division had been a two-horse race between Adam Diggle and Beyonce Boois, with Faith Kahuure also in the mix of things.

Kambonde stole the show to leave Hendrina Apollus on second place. Diggle held on to third.  The Intermediate division was won by Carlo von Rooi, who made his debut at the PTA Tennis Series. The newcomer triumphed over Cleet Farmer in second place and Brandon Maasdorp in third place. At this tournament all participants once again collected points for the PTA Tennis Series Ranking.  Throughout the series, players accumulate ranking points on a 12 month rolling basis with the overall winners announced at the end of the year.
