Wesenhagens advance to semi-finals in Novice Doubles
Trophy Stall Tennis Championships
The Surinamese husband and wife pair of Dick and Joyce Wesenhagen showed the merits of good teamwork as they played excellent doubles in the Novice category of the Trophy Stall Tennis Tournament to notch up three wins and book a place in the semi-finals.
In their first round match they overcame Tracy Deen/Jesus Cduardo 6-1 and then in their second round encounter defeated Alicia DeAbreu/Curlis James 6-2.
Their third match was against favorites Seweon McGarrell/Stephen Bailey in what was the match of the Novice tournament so far as they complimented each other well with Joyce being dominant at the net as they took a 5-1 lead. McGarrell and Bailey battled back gamely to close the gap to 5-4 before Joyce served out the set.
The Russian pair of Victor Demchenko/Laziz Mardonov staged a remarkable recovery as they came back from down 5-3 and two match points against Ryan Cumberbatch/Anthony Sookram to complete a 7-5 win after Cumberbatch/Sookram had dominated the early part of the game.
In the Mixed Doubles competition, Krystal Sukra and Nicholas Glasgow were too good for Jason Andrews and Grace McAlman as they notched up a close 6-4, 6-3 victory at the Pegasus courts.
The tournament continues next weekend.
