The finals of the Kinder events were held earlier today. In the Boys U10 event Gianluca Pace overcame the stiff challenge of Kurt Bonnici 4-2; 4-2.
In the girls U10 event Chloe Kuijt and Pippa Cutugno regaled the good crowd present with some superb tennis. Pippa won a tight first set 4-2 only for Chloe to hit back and level the match by winning the second set 4-1. The match therefore went to a championship tie break with saw Chloe edging it 11-9 for a final score of 2-4; 4-1; 11-9.
In the boys U12 event Kelian Lauwers had a tough tussle with Alexander Zammit. Alex took a 3-0 lead in the first set but Kelian recovered superbly to win 6-3; 6-1;
In the Girls U12 event Maryia Magro prevailed against the much-improved Mikela Bonanno in a keen contest 6-2; 6-3.
The fair play trophy was awarded to Ella Borg for her exemplary behavior on court although, as always, this award is difficult to determine as the tournament was played in a very good sporting spirit throughout.
The Malta Tennis Federation would like to thank the Birkirkara Tennis Club BTC and Mr Eleno Mamo in particular for hosting the event and helping in the smooth running of the tournament.
Well done everyone and on to the next event at Marsa Sports Club.
