Support for French player

The Tatura Guardian - - News -

Dhur­ringile Ten­nis Club and sup­port­ers last week cheered on French ten­nis player Jeremy Chardy, hav­ing ‘‘drawn him’’ in the Aus­tralian Open in Mel­bourne.

Club pres­i­dent Lisa Niglia said the club was 59th on the leader board.

‘‘We as a club are cheer­ing for 29th seed. Let’s wel­come him to the club and get him to fill in for premier two side. We are al­ways short of play­ers,’’ she quipped.

Chardy won his first round at the open against Coric, but un­for­tu­nately went down to An­dreas Seppi (Italy) 7-5 3-6 6-2 6-1 on Wed­nes­day.

Ms Niglia said she made a big banner to take to the open on Thurs­day, Jan­uary 22, and Sun­day, Jan­uary 25, with the Red Ball Ju­nior Hot Shots.

‘‘Let’s get in­volved, bring him to our area, have a ‘French’ party and be the envy of the Goul­burn Val­ley,’’ she said.
