WINDHOEK – This year’s Kia Tennis Series will come to an end this weekend when the stars of tomorrow take to the tennis courts of the Windhoek High School (WHS) for the last time for the season, under the auspices of the Pro Tennis Academy.
Current log leader Codie van Schalkwyk looks set to seal his overall victory of the series once and for all and in the unlikely event that Codie has a real bad day, his brother Connor could theoretically still catch up with his 11-year old sibling.
Meanwhile, there will be an interesting race for 2nd place. Connor is currently in the driving seat, but the likes of Waylon Wentzel, Veri Hinda and Delvin Losper have their sights firmly set on the silver medal. The season finale will definitely be closely contested and could by all means spring a surprise or two.
1. Codie van Schlakwyk 4750
2. Connor van Schalkwyk 3600
3. Waylon Wentzel 3550
4. Veri Hinda 3200
5. Delvin Losper 3025
6. Kayden Schnelle 2360
7. Oliver Diggle 2325
8. Zander Coetzee 1915
9. Jaco Becker 1750
10. Randel Kavandje 1684
Points for the Kia Tennis Ranking are calculated on a 12-month rolling basis that

The Kia Tennis Series consists of nine tournaments with the final tourney slated for this weekend. Players participate in one of five categories as per their skill level and collect points towards the final rankings.
