Peter serves up masterclass but tough semi-final awaits

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.
