During May, Will Maher (TAS Boys Tennis Captain) travelled to Melbourne to compete in two Grade 4 ITF Junior International tournaments. Will played some strong singles matches losing in each tournament in three sets in the Round of 16 and the Round of 32. Will also played in the doubles competition combining exceptionally well with his partner to make the final in the second tournament, which ended up being abandoned due to Melbourne’s fickle weather!
Will’s recent success has seen him reach career high rankings for International Juniors (456), Australian Open Men’s (78) and his Australian Junior Ranking is now sitting nicely at number 5!
Will is an outstanding young man of great character. The TAS Boys Tennis players are taking great inspiration from Will, particularly in his humbleness, approach to training, sportsmanship and ability to return anything hit over the net.
Congratulations, Will on an outstanding tournament in Melbourne!
