Maccabi Tennis Club Championships 2015 wrap

Posted: 18-Sep-2015 by Tennis


Assaf Drori has defended his Victorian Jewish Tennis Championships singles title, to win the event for the third time. Drori defeated promising 15-year-old talent Arthur Kaganovitch 6-2 6-2 in a match full of great running, power and controlled play.

The win came just one week after both Drori and Kaganovitch played in Maccabi's winning Grade 3 Pennant team.

In other results, another young player with impressive potential, Joey Pat, overcame stern resistance from David Zulman, to win the Men's B Singles final 4-6 6-3 6-0.

In the Men's Doubles, Asaf Nagar and Max Needleman were too strong for Steve Gostin and Harvey Kaplan, prevailing 6-2 6-1.

Drori partnered with 13-year-old Holly Feldman to take home the Mixed Doubles crown, against husband/wife duo Asaf and Sara Nagar, 6-4 6-1.

In the Senior Doubles final, the only match of the tournament to be affected by injury, Clive Fredman suffered a heavy fall and was forced to retire hurt with the match delicately poised in the final set of a closely fought final. The injury meant that Simon Glasman and Steven Bendel were declared winners, with Clive and son Joel Fredman unable to defend their title from last year. Glasman and Bendel lost the first set 6-1, won the second set in a tiebreak and were up 2-1 before Fredman's injury.

In the girls' singles event, Holly Feldman prevailed over a hard-hitting Teegan Slomoi, 6-2 6-1.

In the boys 16 and under event, Josh Duieb was the winner, before also going on to win the doubles' event with Roi Brown.

Phillip Mann-Segal came back from 2-6 down to win the final of the boys 13 and under singles event against Marty Schwarz.

Gilad Nagar and Itay Yohanan-Glasman defeated Kevin Haskin and Jordan Galgut in the boys 13 and under doubles final 8-5.
