Tennis success for Montrose juniors

Montrose Tennis Club’s juniors are still playing in tennis tournaments – and winning.

Marta Krauze won the 16 and under division at the North of Scotland Autumn Open at Kilgraston School, beating a player with a higher rating by 6-1 6-4 in the final.

And she was runner-up in the 18 and under division, winning two matches against players with a higher rating. She lost in the final against another higher-rated player.

Cameron Fryer, an experienced tournament player, won the nine and under mini-tennis North of Scotland tournament last month at Kinnoull Club, beating a West of Scotland player 7-5 7-0 in the final.

He was runner-up in nine and under in the Centenary Challenge, at Barnton in Edinburgh in September, losing 7-3 3-7 7-5 in a finely balanced final.

The club’s indoor league season is on. The first team drew 4-4 at Duffus, Coupar Angus, in the A Division.

Montrose’s youthful ladies’ pairing of Marta Krauze and Niamh McGlynn won both sets while the men, Fraser McGlynn and James Sievewright split their sets.

In the mixed doubles, Marta and James lost both their sets, but the father-daughter McGlynn combination won one set in the only tie-break of the match, before losing the second.
