Antonio Warner was crowned the Boys Singles 12 and Under Division Champion during the Sagicor/COTECC Junior Tennis Tournament at the St Lucia National Tennis Center.
During the Boys Singles 12 and Under Division Final, Warner defeated Leeum Chan Pak in straight sets 4-1, 4-0.
The title win brings to an end of a tournament in Saint Lucia that saw four Bermuda Tennis players compete.
Warner said, “I thought the tournament was a really good experience. I had a bad day at the start on the first day, which almost got me knocked out of the tournament. While playing the #1 seed, I was annoyed that I lost the first set. Right before the start of the second set I thought if I can just hold serve and then break serve I have a chance to win the set. I said to myself, I did not come here to lose. It was a tough competition with the Trinidadian’s who have a strong team.”
“Since last years team competition the coaches have helped my training. They have made me put in more hours and work harder; this helped my game improve,” continued Warner.
Warner concluded, “I am happy to win two COTECC tournaments in one year; one in Trinidad and now St. Lucia. Thanks to the Bermuda Lawn Tennis Association for entering me and believing in me”.
