Great tennis final looms
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
