Melbourne, 12 December 2018 | Tennis Australia

Week two of December Showdown is well underway, with 16/u and 12/u events taking place at Melbourne Park until Sunday 16 December.

Players from every state and territory, as well as a host of international competitors will battle it out for their respective national age titles with competitors of the 16/u event also playing for coveted Aus Open 2019 junior wildcards.

Round 2 of the 12/u nationals wrapped today with top seed Sarah Rokusek (NSW) progressing through to R16 of the Girls’ championship and top seeds [1] Mudiwa Munyimani (Vic) and [2] Charlie Camus (ACT) earning their spot in the third round of the Boys’ singles.

“The first set I played well felt really good. The second set I dropped the intensity a little bit, I didn’t play as well, he played better and it was a closer set… Next match I’m aiming to hit less errors,” Camus said after his match.
