The doubles was tighter, but Rooney & Dyakowski won 6-4, 6-2 and Bowden & Bradley-Watson battled home 6-4, 7-6 to maintain their 100 per cent record.

l LARA Frank (North Oxford) defeated the top seed Rachel Cranley 4-2, 4-2 to win the 12 & under girls title at the grade four junior tournament in Goring.
