Cottesloe prove too strong
IN a weekend of one-sided matches, Cottesloe fielded its full-strength team to dominate City Beach 6-0 in round four of the women’s State League tennis competition.
It was Cottesloe’s first outright win led by Alicia Molik, Australia’s Federation Cup captain, who was well-supported by touring national academy player Maddison Inglis, Teiwa Casey and Lexie Weir to send a loud message to league leaders Royal Kings Park.
Kings Park, fired back a volley of its own with a 6-0 win over Hensman Park (HPTC), while Blue Gum defeated North Beach 6-0.
In the men’s State League, Hensman delivered a 5-1 win over an injured Dalkeith (DTC). League leaders Cottesloe remain undefeated with a 5-1 win away at Bayswater.
Mosman Park bounced back from last week’s loss against Cottesloe with another one-sided 6-0 rubbers, 12 sets to two win over Mt Lawley at home.
The pick of the matches next week will be Kings Park men hosting Mosman Park and Cottesloe hosting Blue Gum in a replay of last year’s final.
Dalkeith’s Christian Harding, Dylan McCloskey, Ollie Henderson and Matt Rosso.
