The opening round of the inaugural SRT Logistics Premier League saw a strong of close encounters take place between six club-affiliated teams at the Domain Tennis Centre on Saturday.

Former top 400 player Raphael Durek claimed a tight singles victory over Casey Ambler on Centre Court, with promising junior George Anderson pairing up with Durek and Tasmanian No.2 Catherine Krueger for back-to back doubles wins to ensure a victory for Glenorchy Stringlab over Domain Two-Folk Espresso.

Despite Rohan Kerr’s three-set win over Tony Blom in their singles match, solid performances from Andrew Bourke and Nick Fader ensured that Geilston Bay opened their account against Sunshine.

Domain Whisk & Co Café claimed the honours over Geilston Bay, with the rivalry between Edward Bourchier and Sam Edgar continuing to develop following their recent meetings in a number of UTR tournament finals.  Bourchier maintained his edge with a super tie-breaker win, with Jakob Haas also defeating Jack Derrick to lead Domain to victory.
