Down the line

Southern Lakes’ Perry Crockett returns a shot to top seed Johnny McHarg, of Canterbury, in yesterday’s men’s singles final of the North Otago Open.

Third-seeded Crockett won the title 7-5, 7-5. North Otago’s Mackenzie Phillips and Belinda Hirst battled it out in the women’s final, top-seeded Phillips coming back to win 2-6, 6-4, 6-1.

North Otago’s Robin Jamieson and Otago’s Paddy Ou won the men’s doubles final 6-1, 6-1 against McHarg and Josh Dalziel. North Otago pair Phillips and Rebecca Ryan claimed the women’s doubles title in a round robin competition, beating Hirst and Angela Fitzgerald 6-4, 6-4 and Jordyn Phillips and Lily McHarg 6-2, 6-3.

North Otago Tennis president Dalziel said it was the Open’s strongest field in about ten to 15 years, and it had been a "bloody good" weekend of tennis.
