It's often said that the camera never lies - and Peter Corrie can certainly vouch for that as he prepares his bid to land an Irish national junior title in Dublin for the first time.

The 16-year-old Hilden player has been using video analysis to fine tune his game under the supervision of his coach Alex Watt.

Corrie said: "I have found it to be very helpful and, even when you think you've done nothing wrong in say winning a point, Alex has been able to pick out areas for improvement."

"We used video analysis to prepare for the final of the recent ITF world-ranking tournament at Windsor and it worked a treat after watching footage of my opponent in his semi-final."

Corrie will be hoping to complete a notable treble later this week when he takes part in the Under 18 singles at Fitzwilliam, having won the ITF tournament and the Ulster Junior Open title last year at the Boat Club.

He is seeded fourth and begins his campaign tomorrow when he takes on Dermot Foley in the first round.

Fermanagh youngster Jared Monaghan joined him in the main draw after coming through qualifying at the weekend.

However, after beating Matthew Matthews in straight sets, he now has the daunting task of playing top seed Morgan Lohan in the first round.

Will Millar and Anton Robb also came through qualifying in the U-16 event while Rachel McCrum, who is seeded to win the girls U-12 title, is through to the second round after a 6-0, 6-0 win over Teja Heffernan.
