Stampfli, Carlista to meet in women’s final

The trinidad Guardian / Breana Stampfli and Carlista Mohammed will contest the Women’s Singles final of the Bmobile sponsored National Tennis Open at the National Racquet Centre in Tacarigua after both received contrasting victories in yesterday’s semi finals matches.

On court 12 Stampfli rolled back the years in her encounter with the Tranquility Tennis Open queen Shenelle Mohammed by beating her in straight sets 6-2, 6-1 for the right to compete for the title which is being held Carlista Mohammed. Mohammed (Shenelle) was expected to advanced to the final for a long-awaited clash with her long-time rival Carlista Mohammed, but Stampfli, who has been based in the US for the past years, spoiled those plans by her display of impressive tennis that could be good enough to earn her the title tomorrow.

Carlista on the other hand, made light work of her opponent Abigail Jones on court seven, disposing of her in straight sets 6-3 and 6-1 for the opportunity to retain the crown she won last year. And up to press time last night the Men’s Singles semi-finals between Akile Duke and Joe Cadogan on court 12, and Richard Chung and Vaughn Wilson on court six, were still in process.

Meanwhile Kendall Cuffy was voted men’s veterans champion when he defeated Rickey Villaroel in the final 6-1, 6-1. Following in his 6-0, 6-0 victory over Everest Simon the day before, Cuffy was the overwhelming favourite for the title and he did not disappoint. In another game the pair of Dexter Mahase and Lyn Ann Fraser cruised to the Mixed Doubles final after prevailing over the team of Robert Caesar and Maria Honore 6-0, 6-1.

They were joined in the final by the combined pair of Colin Auguste and Yin Lee Assang who got the better of Jelani Robertson and Victoria Koylass 6-0, 6-0, hardly breaking a sweat in their triumph.

In the Women’s Doubles Shenelle Mohammed and Trevine Sellier got a walk-over victory over Jones and Lily Lanser.
