Great ten­nis fi­nal looms

Western Suburbs Weekly - - - War­ren Hard­ing

THE semi-fi­nals of the men’s State League ten­nis pro­duced scin­til­lat­ing ten­nis, with Mos­man Park caus­ing a 3-0 up­set over mi­nor pre­miers Kings Park Ten­nis Club.

Big-serv­ing world num­ber 191 Bry­dan Klein for Mos­man Park en­joyed the fast grass and mus­cled his way past Jake Robin­son.

Wins by tour player Gavin Van Peperzeel 6-3 6-2 over Sam Ashen­don and tal­ented 18-year-old Tom Hann 6-4 6-2 over Ben Dallinger left Mos­man Park’s Bren­ton Ba­con to grab a set to get the job done.

In the other semi-fi­nal, Hens­man Park con­tin­ued its win­ning run with a 3-1 win over last year’s win­ners Cottes­loe with Hens­man Park’s Rhys John­son, Zach Itzstein and Marco Co­muzzo se­cur­ing straight set wins.

It will now host a dan­ger­ous Mos­man Park at home next week in what will be a spir­ited fi­nal of one of the best years of the com­pe­ti­tion.

In the women’s State League, for­mer world num­ber eight Ali­cia Mo­lik led Cottes­loe to a 3-1 win against North Beach and now face last year’s cham­pi­ons Blue Gum in the fi­nal.

Blue Gum is hop­ing for back-to-back cham­pi­onships hav­ing despatched City Beach and will host the fi­nal start­ing at 1pm
