Former Champions Contest VIC Jewish Tennis Championships Final

Posted: 18-Apr-2013 by Tennis

40 year old Joel Fredman won his second Victorian Jewish Tennis Championship last Sunday defeating Stephen Sharp in the Men's Open Singles Final, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2. Fredman won his first title back in 1991 as a 19 year old when he was "at the peak of my powers" according to Fredman, who then defeated Josh Frydenberg in the Semi Final and Jeff Nissenbaum in the Final. Fredman showed that he has not lost his touch beating some of Maccabi Tennis Club's younger crop in Saul Muscatel and Naveh Dvir Ovadia, both in straight sets, on his way to this years final. Stephen Sharp,48, a 3 time former champion back in the 1980's, got off to a great start taking the first set. Fredman then lifted the tempo taking the 2nd set 6-3 as Sharp started to fatigue, having already played in the Men's doubles final earlier in the day, winning in the 3 sets with his brother Danny. Fredman's forehand was too good for Sharp in the 3rd set as he took control of the match and claimed the title 6-3 in the 3rd.

The Story of the Tennis Championships was 10 year old Holly Feldman who won the Girls Under 17 Singles Championships beating Girls 6 years older than her.

Holly's mother Elissa won the Mixed Doubles Final with former Professional Tennis Player Assaf Drori. In the Boys Under 17 Singles Final Jared Joffe defeated Jess Flicker 7-6, 7-5 in a tight contest. Joffe also won the Boys Junior Doubles Final with Ryan Sharp defeating Saul Jayes and Adam Rushford 2-6, 7-6, 6-3.
