Reid, Eguchi rein in Burnie
Matt Reid and Misa Eguchi have triumphed at the Burnie International.
Matt Reid has got his 2014 season off to a great start winning the men’s singles title at the Burnie International Challenger.
The fifth seed in Burnie, Reid defeated Japanese fourth seed Hiroki Moriya in straight sets 6-3 6-2 to secure the title.
Reid dropped just one set on his way to the title and thanks to some early-round upsets didn’t meet a fellow seed until the final.
In the women’s event, Japan’s Misa Eguchi came back from a set down to defeat Russia’s Elizaveta Kulichkova.
Despite being ranked almost thirty places lower than her opponent, Eguchi held her nerve to win the final 4-6 6-2 6-3.
