2008 Victorian Claycourt ID Champs Results


The 2008 Victorian

Claycourt

Championships for people with intellectual disabilities was

completed this weekend, with a couple of not-so-surprising results coming out of the

weekend’s matches.


The main talking point was the first-time victory of Senya Rudoy, whose impressive showing

against Brendan Jinks in the Men’s Singles Final culminated in a convincing 8-3 triumph.  It

was just reward for Rudoy, who has successfully combined his hard work ethic and dedication

with the thrill of participation in the tournament.


In the Men’s Open Doubles, Victorian Hugh Ennor added another medal to his enviable

collection, taking out the title with partner Brendan Jinks.  Ennor & Jinks had progressed

through to the final against Nick Whitford & Mark Konings with relative ease and were

awarded the match, and the title, after an unfortunate injury forced Whitford from the court.


Kelly Wren continued her unstoppable run of success, defeating opponent Carla Larduzzi 8-1

in the Women’s Singles final, as well as savouring victory in the Women’s Doubles event with

partner Sharon Morse.  The pair conjured up a convincing 8-1 scoreline over rivals Carla

Larduzzi & Fiona Taylor, to cap off a memorable tournament.


Each of the competitors was awarded a special Tennis Victoria showbag (including a t-shirt,

medallion and commemorative flag) prior to the event, in recognition of their participation in

the competition.


A special mention goes to the tournament’s umpires, who do a great job in assisting the

players with their on-court etiquette, ongoing education and for their willingness to contribute

to the cause.
