ELENI LOUKA, DIMITRIS LIVERAS, ANDROUSIA ARAVIS... EXCELLENT TOURNAMENT WEEK

Herodotou Tennis Academy 2016 TE U16 Cat.2 Tournament has brought some great results of our players.

Eleni Louka made this week realy exceptional. Having almost no troubles throughout the whole competition, our 14 years old (young) player won the Winner title in singles category as well as Runner Up in category Girls Doubles, partnering Gkokou (GRE).

Dimitris Liveras and Androusia Aravis had our big expectations and recorded good results also. Androusia has managed to pass first two rounds, but was defeted in quarter final match agains No.5 seeded Tanner (SUI) 3:6 6:7(6) dropping three opportunities to close the second set and decide the winner in the final one. Meanwhile, Liveras had no particular problems to record another win in his quarter final match against No.6 seeded Ovcharenko (UKR) 6:7(4) 6:2 6:2. But, the semi-final match was something else - a true thriller. Dimitris was playing against No.1 seeded Binda (RUS), 84th ranked junior U16 in Europe. After big battle and one set all (4:6 6:4) the match went into deciding, final set, which has started on the best possible way for Dimitris - 3:1. But, tennis game isn't a smooth run always so it created a big drama again. The opponent has managed to recompose and materialize the slowdown in Dimitri's game thus coming to the final score - 6:4 in the final set.

In doubles, Liveras and Aravis had performed good games and found themselves in the final, which they lost against No.1 seeded pair Binda (RUS), partnering Ovcharenko (UKR). The final result was 5:7 6:4 [5:10] and Liveras/Aravis lifted Runner Up trophy of Herodotou 2016 TE U16 Tournament.

Last week was really fruitfull week for our players and our U16 team is heading toward Nicosia, where Masters Academy TE U16 Cat.3 is about to start. We wish them all good performances and new set of great results.
