THE round-robin qualifying event for the Catch National Junior Tennis Championships will conclude today, while Under-10 doubles action begins at the National Racquet Centre, Tacarigua, with the main draw to follow tomorrow.
Some 74 matches played yesterday at the same venue in the Girls and Boys Under-10, Under-12 and Under-14 – all of which began with multi-group round-robin qualifiers.
Several players were in action more than once with some earning their spots in the main draw, while others will have the chance to catch up today with the close of round-robin play.
Among those with highlight performances were Keyondre Duke, who won his two boys Under-12 round-robin matches against Yohance Solomon (4-0, 4-0) and Callum Koylass (4-2, 4-2) and would book a spot in the main draw, along with Alexander Merry, who eased past his opponents Adam Wyatt (4-2, 4-1) and B’jorn Hall (4-0, 4-0).
