Ulster pair enjoy double success in Dublin finals
Amy Rothwell and Rachel McCrum made it a double success for Ulster players at the Brookfield Junior Open tournament in Dublin with comprehensive victories in their respective finals yesterday.
Bangor player Rothwell, the top seed, raced to an impressive 6-0, 6-1 win over second-ranked Katie Morrissey in the U16 final.
McCrum (David Lloyd) was an equally impressive winner in the U12 final as she powered her way to a 6-1, 6-1 success over Isabella Lynch.
But there was disappointment for Lydia Kelly, who has been suffering from a cold and she lost 6-1, 6-3 to Ellie Murphy in the U18 decider.
Meanwhile Hawarden's Dylan Leeman was involved in the closest match of the day in the Lisburn Junior Open finals as he edged out Jack Hudson in three sets to take the U14 title.
