In the 14/u singles, Megan played her doubles partner Gina, who was to be a tricky opponent. The court was slippery early on and both girls found the grass tricky slipping and sliding on a lot of points.
Both girls settled into the match and were both playing some entertaining tennis with very long rallies. Megan broke early on to win the set 6-1, finishing with an ace.
The second set was much the same with both girls working hard and moving each other around the court.
Megan (pictured) again took an early break and upped the tennis, winning the set, 6-1. It was a very fun match to watch with Megan winning 6-1, 6-1.
She had one remaining final to play in the mixed doubles with Luke Garden.
With the weather causing trouble this match had to be played in an indoor venue.
Megan and Luke have been playing together for about 14 months now and are a very good partnership.
Megan and Luke started the match very well with Luke serving a love game.
The partnership worked very well with both players having a great understanding throughout. The pair won the first set comfortably and continued their good play in the second set, with some great points won all over the court.
They upped their game in the second set to win the match comfortably. Final score 4-0, 4-2 - short sets were played due to the rain.
