Top Class: Paul Roos dominate Kearsney event in French Open

2013-05-28 00:00

THE weather played its role in what turned out to be a top-class tennis event, in which some of South Africa’s leading players were seen in action at Kearsney over the past weekend.

Wayne Montgomery from Paul Roos flew from Durban directly after the tournament to participate in the Junior French Open, having used the Kearsney tournament as a “warm-up” for this international event. He is currently ranked number seven in the World ITF Junior Rankings. He was instrumental in allowing Paul Roos to again dominate school’s tennis in South Africa. They won the 18th annual Invitation Festival held at Kearsney College for the 10th time.

The clinical domination of Paul Roos left the remaining teams to play for second position. Kearsney’s three-day tournament ended on Sunday with another strong tennis outfit, Affies from Pretoria, coming second. In the final, Paul Roos managed to beat Affies 5-1.

The young Kearsney team performed well and finished in 5th position, losing to Affies and St Stithians but beating Clifton, Selborne and Westville Boys’. Grey College finished in 3rd position after a hard-fought win over St Stithians.
