THE AMERICAN pair of Blaise Bicknell and Sasha Wood lived up to their respective billings as the top seeds, and favourites, as they captured the boys and girls Under-18 singles titles yesterday, as the ITF/COTECC Trinity Cup 2018 concluded at the National Racquet Centre, Tacarigua.
Both finals were all-American affairs, but the number one seeds had little to no trouble in earning straight-set wins.
Bicknell got past seventh seed Andre Mariados 6-4, 6-3 in the boys decider while Wood breezed past second seed Sofia Rojas 6-0, 6-1.
