Brisbane, 18 July 2011 |

Top seeds Jay Andrijic (South Penrith, NSW) and Emily Fanning (NZL) have produced an outstanding week of tennis to win their respective singles and doubles titles at the opening Queensland Junior Winter International in Brisbane.

After reaching two consecutive boys’ singles finals abroad last month, Andrijic continued his rich vein of form to defeat Daniel Alameh (Rivervale, WA) in straight sets, 6-2 6-2.  The victory marked the 15 year-old’s second ITF Junior Grade 4 title following his maiden career title at the Gallipoli Youth Cup in May.

Andrijic then teamed with Optus 14s Australian Championships runner-up Daniel Guccione (Bundoora, Vic) to win the boys’ doubles title in straight sets against sixth seeds Robert Allan (Mullaloo, WA) and Dylan McCloskey (Dalkeith, WA).

In the girls’ draw, Fanning conceded only one set en route to the singles final before comfortably defeating local talent Rachel Tredoux (Sunnybank, Qld) in straight sets, 6-0 6-2.

The 16 year-old then paired with Junior Fed Cup representative Brooke Rischbieth (Berri, SA) to defeat the New South Wales duo of Ellen Perez (Shellharbour, NSW) and Stephanie Yamada (Chatswood, NSW) in the doubles final.

The Queensland Junior Winter International circuit will conclude with a second tournament this week at the Kawana Tennis Club in Buddina.
