Young mini performance player Kirsty Da Silva finished in second place today at the Grade 4 10 and U Girls Indoor Winter County tournament held at the White Horse Leisure & Tennis Centre, Oxfordshire.
Starting her New Year in very good form Da Silva played four matches in the group stages, winning Box B convincingly. She beat Florence Haigh 4-0, Molly Hulcup 4-0, Darcy Herring Johnson 4-3(2) and Lois Newberry 4-2 to finish at the top of the box and progress to the main draw.
She continued her strong display dispensing with her semi final opponent Katie Baker 4-0, 4-3(0) to reach final. Unfortunately she then came up against a very strong opponent and Group A winner Patricia Radan who won the final with a flourish 4-0, 4-0, even though the scoreline may not reflect it Da Silva played extremely well and started 2016 with a well-deserved runners-up medal, congratulations Kirsty!
