ITF win for talented tennis player

Elys Ventura (Year 12) won the latest tournament in the International Tennis Federation Junior Championship which was held in Auckland in early October. Elys had made it to the semi-finals stage of four the previous ITF tournaments this year, which in itself is a fine achievement, but at the Auckland tournament, even though she was the Third Seed, she beat the Top Seed from Australia in the final by 6-4, 6-1. Remarkably, Elys did not drop a single set in the six matches she played over the whole tournament.
