Matthew Cassar Torreggiani concluded a splendid tennis year whereby he cemented his position as a top player by beating his twin brother Bernard in yesterday’s fought final 6-2 3-6 6-2.
Matthew started off in total control to win the first set 6-2. Bernard was playing well but the lack of recent match practice saw him make several unforced errors. He nonetheless gave his very best and won the second set 6-3. The third set saw Matthew play steadily and an early lead saw him win the set 6-2t.
The presentation ceremony took place at the end of the event whereby Stefan Abela from Bank of Valletta’s PR and Marketing Department and David Farugia Sacco, President of the Malta Tennis Federation, presented the trophy and prize money to the semi finalists Denzil Agius and Omar Sudzuka, the runner up Bernard Cassar Torregiani and the winner Matthew Cassar Torregiani.
