The June WA Day long weekend drew nearly 200 players to the State Tennis Centre and Mt Lawley Tennis Club from 3-6 June for the WA Day Junior and Open Series Event. Local and interstate players were in action across the 20-event tournament which included both Boys and Girls Junior events in Singles and Doubles draws as well as Open Men’s and Women’s Singles and Doubles.
Kicking off on Friday, 3 June and running all weekend, the weather held out and made for a sunny and exciting event. Michael Faulkner took out the Open Men’s Singles title in a 6-2, 6-3 win over Alexander Ridley. On the back of her success at the Australian Claycourt Championships in Canberra in April, youngster Sara Nikolic took out the Open Women’s Singles in a tough 5-7, 6-3, 10-3 match.
Jayden Jusuf won the Junior Boys Singles, while also taking out the Junior Boys Double title with Harshil Pujari. Elena Manoj won the Junior Girls Singles and made it to the Final of the Junior Girls Doubles with partner Zoe Hiong but the girls couldn’t quite clinch it, with duo Lily Edgar and Karin Hiramatsu taking out a 6-1, 6-2 win.
