HERODOTOU TENNIS ACADEMY 2016 Cat.2 TE U16 TOURNAMENT has just finished and our pre-tournament expectations for a good tournament week have been fully fulfilled.

Over 100 players from 18 different countries offered us great games and lot of excitement. It was clear from the very beginning of the tournament that competition level, both in Boys and Girls category will be very high. Spectators were enjoying great tennis matches throught the whole tournament week and the players were performing their best.

The success of all our players, plying the homeground courts was for all our respects. Our best ranked TE U16 player, Dimitris Liveras was performing very solid, as usual. He was cruising easily toward the final, but in semi-final match had to face No.1 positioned player Binda (RUS) (No.84 on Europe ranking list). The match was full with tension and high-expectations from both players. Our young talented player had a significant advantage in the final set (4:1) but a bit of concetration loss caused opponent's come back and his final win- 6:4 4:6 6:4. Androusia Aravis was stopped in the quarter-finals by the Swiss player Tanner. In doubles, Liveras and Aravis became Runners-up losing in the final against Binda (RUS) partnering Ovcharenko (UKR) - 5:7 6:4 [5:10].

However, the most pleasant news were coming from our Eleni Louka this time. She was performing her best tennis ever and simply hasn't allowed any surprise in all her matches during the whole tournament. She was so solid and superior on her way to final that no one opponent has succeeded to take a set against Eleni, including No.1 seeded Krupenina (RUS), which has managed nothing better than 2:6 3:6. The first lost set for Eleni has happened in the final match, which she played against No.2 seeded player Yersh (BLR) but Eleni was better during the whole match and the Winner trophy was well deserved - 6:2 3:6 6:3 !! Also. Eleni made Runner-up title in category Girls Doubles, partnering Gkoukou (GRE) thus completing HERODOTOU TENNIS ACADEMY 2016 TE U16 Cat.2 Tournament on the best possible way.
