A spokesperson said, “The match of the day, appropriately on center court was the boys 18 round robin between Trey Mallory and Luke Stirling. Trey who is only 13 years old, moved ahead in the 1st set 4 games to 1, before Luke settled down and found penetrating length on both sides of the court.

“The rallies were long and the great majority of shots from both players were strong top spin, interspersed with the occasional cross court slice shot. Luke eked out the first set 7-5.

“The second set was a near carbon copy image with 16 year old Luke again finding himself down 4 – 1 before settling down. He made fewer errors as the set progressed and won the second set also by a score of 7-5 Bermuda’s tennis future d=bodes well with the quality of our up and coming juniors.”
