THE fi­nal four is still not set­tled in the men’s State Ten­nis League as Dalkeith and Mosman Park stum­bled on Sat­ur­day as clubs spiced up the in­tense com­pe­ti­tion.

Pep­per­mint Grove caused a boil over at home with a close 3-3 rub­bers, 7-7 sets, 57-52 games win against higher-ranked Mosman Park.

Pep­per­mint Grove raised the stakes as Frank Moser (world dou­bles rank­ing num­ber 47) and Ste­fan Skadarka (world num­ber 1280) made their de­buts to se­cure easy sin­gles wins.

Mosman Park fought back win­ning the other two sin­gles and won the first of the dou­bles to lead 3-2 but Pep­per­mint Groves’ Troy Har­g­reaves and Chris Moore closed it out 6-7 6-3 10-8 against Peter Schoolkate and Sam Alexan­der in a heart-stop­per.

Dalkeith needed to win against league lead­ers Kings Park but went down 1-5.

Kings Park showed its class with its num­ber one Jake Robin­son beat­ing tour player Dane Pro­pog­gia (high­est world rank­ing num­ber 295) in a high qual­ity match.

Dalkeith grabbed a valu­able rub­ber when Pro­pog­gia and Dy­lan Mccloskey beat Sam Ashen­don and Jaron Stafford 6-0 6-4.
