Summer Friday Nights at Campbells Bay mean Chelsea Cup. This was the biggest night of the season so far with our Prestige Reality Teams carried on their fantastic form.
The Prestige Reality Ladies took on Takapuna to see who would make it to the final. The doubles were played first with seasoned veterans Pavlina Nola & Kairangi Vano taking on Chanistha Ampornachariya & Lucia Young. The level of tennis was raised and our ladies only sacrificed two games to get us started by winning 6-1 6-1. Our second pairing consisted of two of New Zealands top juniors Rosie Cheng & Kelly Drew who took on Takapunas Marina Sokolnikova & Lana Sokolnikova.. While younger in age they were as ruthless winning 6-1 6-2. With two points secured, we needed a point and set from the last 4 matches to march on the final. The Prestige Reality Ladies finished the contest in style by smashing the opposition. Kairangi Vano beat Chanistha Ampornachariya 6-1 6-0, Pavlina Nola beat Kasey Nihill 6-1 6-1, Rosie Cheng beat Lucia Young 7-5 6-3. Kelly Drew beat Lana Popovich 6-0 6-0.
This meant our Prestige Reality Ladies won 8-0 and have made it to another final.
The Prestige Reality Men took on Ngataringa. While the contest was tougher the ladies the end result was the same with the men winning all 6 matches available. Our mens top pairing of Victor Romero and Mark Nielsen took on Gilles DeGouy and Lucien Lemay. Ngataringa kept our boys honest in the first set losing 7-6 with our boys taking on the second set 6-3. Our bottom pairing of Adam Thompson and Jackson Bodle kept the spectators interested by taking the match out in super tie break 6-3 3-6 10-7. The singles went according to plan winning all four singles. Victor Romero beat Gilles DeGouy 6-2 6-1. Mark Nielsen had to take on the big serving Daniel Brown. He had it all after losing the first set in a tie break. He showed all his class winning the last two sets 6-2 6-3.
Adam Thompson playing in position three this week beat Lucien Lemay 6-1 6-3. Kevin Doh beat David Jiang 6-3 6-3.
