Players demonstrate quality at 4th PTA Tennis Series



The PTA Tennis Series resumed recently with the fourth tourney of the season in the capital attracting more than 20 players to the Windhoek High School (WHS) tennis courts.

The players battled it out for ranking points, upon which the overall winners will be determined at the end of the season.

The mini category saw Eila Kambonde celebrate a successful return to PTA action. She had been in top form throughout the year but missed out on the last tourneys allowing her main rival Jamilla Hungamo to wrestle the lead.

However, this time Kambonde got the better of Hungamo and came out victorious leaving her bitter rival to claim second place to stay in contention for the overall victory, leaving Arnaud Marais adrift in third spot.

In the beginner’s category, Faith Kahuure and Delicia Dirkse continued their two-way battle. The pair missed out on a win during the third showpiece but made strong comebacks two weeks ago. Kahuure eventually took first place after a splendid performance, while Dirkse finished second. The two are poised to continue this heated rivalry till the end of the season.

Meanwhile, Lorenzo Kotze won the intermediate division shaking off some stiff competition. Alwera Smith managed to hold on to second place tailed by Bronwyn Kavarue in third.

Cleet Farmer was unstoppable in the advanced category. The latter had just been graduated to this class after winning most of the intermediate category this year. He took top honours ahead of Godwin Husselmann and Brandon Maasdorp.
