New Caledonia ITF Junior Tournament 2018

Tournament Referee, Pat O’ Rourke, writes that ” With an increase in numbers of both boys and girls over 2017 this tournament, in only its second year and competing against Darwin for players, was a great success. The weather was perfect for the entire week and there was some excellent tennis played. Players from Australia, New Zealand and Japan dominated the events with some good results from the strong Pacific contingent.

The Boys Singles was won by top seed, Alex Bulte (AUS) who beat surprise finalist, Corban Crowther (NZL) 76(5), 26, 63 in the final. It was a very good showing by Crowther to make the final of an ITF event for the first time whilst it was Bulte’s 2nd title on the circuit.

The Girl’s final featured 5th seed, Lara Walker (AUS) against 3rd seed Kokomi  Koyama (JPN). Walker had earlier upset the top seed Holly Stewart (NZL) and repeated that form in the final winning 62,62.

The Boy’s Doubles was a battle between the top 2 seeds with Bulte combining with fellow Australian, David Qariaqus to bat Clement Mainguy (VAN) and Gillian Osmont (FRA) 64,62. In the closest of matches, Holly Stewart and Ivy McLean (NZL) outlasted the Japanese pair Pete Komada and Yukino Kubo 57, 62, 12-10.”
