NEED­ING a win to hold its spot, Mos­man Park Ten­nis Club locked down fourth spot with an em­phatic 5-1 win over Mt Law­ley in the men’s State League ten­nis com­pe­ti­tion that this year has show­cased world-class play­ers.

Cottes­loe snuffed out Dalkeith’s hope of snatch­ing fourth slot, with An­drew Roberts win­ning 6-0, 6-1 against Dy­lan Mccloskey.

Joel Pley­dell had to fight 6-3, 2-6, 6-4 to beat a hard-hit­ting Ol­lie Hen­der­son, and brother Mitch Pley­dell had a straight­sets win over Dalkeith’s Matt Rosso.

Kings Park will host Mos­man Park on grass in the first semi­fi­nal.

Hens­man Park showed fi­nals form with a win over Kings Park 4-2 on the week­end and will host Cottes­loe in the other semi­fi­nal.

In the women’s league, Ali­cia Mo­lik lead a clean sweep on grass for Cottes­loe against Hig­gins Park 6-0.

Mo­lik, Aus­tralia’s Fed Cup cap­tain, was all class as she dropped only two games for the day, win­ning her sin­gles 61, 6-0 against Crys­tal Mild­wa­ters and the dou­bles in straight sets play­ing with Teiwa Casey.

City Beach pushed Hens­man Park to go down 2-4, with wins by the for­mer’s Maddy Wat­son and Lara Vu­jasi­novic in the sin­gles, and Ali Con­nell and Hay­ley O’don­nell closely lost their dou­bles 3-6 64 9-11 in the su­per tie-breaker.

In other matches, Blue Gum won the mi­nor premiership, fin­ish­ing top of the lad­der with a 4-2 win over last year’s run­ners-up North Beach, and will host the first semi­fi­nal next week as they chase back-to-back pre­mier­ships.
