BOV Masters Top 8 – 2023


The BOV Masters final was played yesterday afternoon between Dwayne Pullicino and Mark Schranz.

Although the challenging weather conditions were making it somewhat difficult for both players to find their usual rhythm they were still producing some really nice rallies.

After sharing the initial exchanges, Pullicino seemed to adapt better to the tricky conditions and played solidly to win the first set 6-2.

The second set opened with a marathon first game with both players having numerous game points to win it.

Dwayne eventually clinched it and this spurred him to play more consistently and with more confidence.

Mark tried his best to counter Dwayne’s enterprising play but ultimately had to succumb to the more solid and precise shots being produced by his younger opponent.

Dwayne eventually closed the set quite comfortably to win the match 6-2; 6;1.

At the end of the match a presentation ceremony was held with Stefan Abela, BOV CSR Manager, Vitor Cabral, ITF Development Officer (Europe), and Dr David Farrugia Sacco, MTF President, presenting the trophies and prize money to the winners and runners up.

Well done everyone and on to the next one!
