DALKEITH Ten­nis Club has jumped into fourth po­si­tion with a fight­ing win over Mos­man Park in the WA State Ten­nis Men's League on the week­end.

Mos­man Park’s num­ber one Gavin Van Peperzeel (world ranked 336) was all class as he raced through Matt Rosso without drop­ping a game but wins by Dalkeith’s num­ber three Ben Web­ster over Sam Alexan­der 6-3 4-6 6-3 and num­ber four Ollie Hen­der­son’s 6-3 6-3 vic­tory over David Leahy pulled Dalkeith ahead.

This left a testy Tom Hann to dig deep from a break down in the third set to level the match for Mos­man over Dalkeith’s big-serv­ing Josiah Tyson.

Dalkeith teamed up to win two very high-qual­ity dou­bles to see them home 4-2 and eye­ing a fi­nals berth, although they have a tough run home in rounds 12-14.

Mos­man Park will be look­ing for­ward to the re­turn of Bren­ton Ba­con, who had been coach­ing at the Aus­tralian Open, and John Peers, who was on na­tional duty play­ing an im­por­tant role in the Aus­tralian Davis Cup 4-1 win over the Czech Repub­lic at the week­end.

In other matches, the top teams dom­i­nated, with Hens­man Park post­ing a solid 5-1 win but Hig­gins Park showed fight­ing spirit in tak­ing three of the matches to three sets.

League lead­ers Kings Park put on a flaw­less dis­play in a 6-0 rub­ber, 12-0 set drub­bing over Mt Law­ley away.

Fi­nally, Pep­per­mint Grove hosted a very dif­fer­ent look­ing but equally pro­fes­sional Cottes­loe team led by Joel Pley­dell, who had the tight­est of wins over Troy Har­g­reaves 6-7 7-5 7-6. Cottes­loe won 6-0.

Gavin Van Peperzeel serves in his win against Matt Rosso.
