The local tennis family and representatives of the sponsor had gathered at the tennis complex at Roche Caïman to witness the two matches which brought to an end the Cable & Wireless tournament organised by the Seychelles Tennis Association (STA).

In the women’s singles final, Clyvie exacted revenge on veteran Sarah Rene with a 3-1 (6-4, 2-6, 6-0) victory to be crowned the champion.

In the semifinals, Clyvie beat Thara Hoareau 2-0 (6-2, 6-0) and Rene dispatched Marie-May Isnard 2-0 (6-1, 6-0).

The men’s final between Sylvester and Ronny Ah-Shung was quite interesting with the former needing a tie-break to take the first set on the way to a 2-0 (7-6, 6-2) victory.

While Ah-Shung beat Selwyn Lespoir 2-0 (6-4, 6-1) in the first semifinal, Sylvester won 2-0 (6-1, 6-4) against cadet player Damien Laporte in the other last-four encounter.

Cable & Wireless’ director for Human Resources and Administration Thomas Dauban presented the winners and runners-up with their prizes.
