Peter Corrie will carry local hopes in today's ITF junior world ranking tournament semi-finals after another superb display at Windsor yesterday.

The 16-year-old Hilden ace defeated Bangor's Matthew O'Boyle 7-6 6-2 to book his place in the last four, in which he will meet Great Britain's Andrew Rozanov, the sixth seed.

Corrie said: "Matthew was making a few errors, so I took confidence from that. I played some of my best tennis in the second set but it's going to be difficult in the semi against a seeded player I've never played before."

At the Ulster Junior Open at the Boat Club, Lurgan's Caleb Ralston defeated Jordan McKeown 6-7 6-4 7-6 to reach the U18 semi-finals but Bangor's Harry Ellesmere lost 6-3 6-2 to Dublin's Finlay McFadyen

Karola Bejenaru lost her first round match at the $10,000 tournament in her native Romania, the 19-year-old Windsor player going down 6-3 6-3 to fourth-seeded Jaqueline Christian.

ITF quarter-final results: boys: Robert Leck (GBR) bt Zummy Bauer (USA) 7-6 7-6; Freddie Grant (GBR) bt Cian Maguire (Ire) 6-2 6-4; Andrew Rozanov (GBR) bt Morgan Lohan (Ire) 3-6 6-0 6-2; Peter Corrie (Ire) bt Matthew O'Boyle (Ire) 7-6 6-2. Girls: Morgan Cross (GBR) bt Sophia Derivan (Ire) 7-6 7-6; Shauna Heffernan (Ire) bt Fanni Gecsek (Hungary) 6-2 6-0; Summer Yardley (GBR) bt Erika Dodridge (GBR) 6-4 6-4; Anna Bowtell (Ire) bt Sophia Biolay (France) 6-4 7-6.
