THERE was success at the double for Daniel Sinclair at the Sellers International tournament held at Edgerton’s Huddersfield Tennis Club.
The Thongsbridge player powered to the men’s singles title and then partnered his brother Nathan to success in the men’s doubles.
The No1 seed Daniel had beaten his brother 6-4 6-2 in the last eight to set up a semi-final meeting against Sheffield’s Simon Howson and he went on to beat No3 seed Sean Stafford in the final – the Marsden coach having come through the semis with a win over No2 seed Phil Whalley.
In the doubles final the Sinclairs secured success over Whalley and Stafford.
The women’s singles title was won by Laura Hopton, who had made her intent clear earlier in the contest when she knocked out the tournament’s No1 seed Caroline Mount from the host club.
Hopton made her way to the final by scoring a semi-final success over another local hope Kim Atkinson of the Thongsbridge club and then beat Batley’s Carrie Wagstaff in the final.
There was some reward for Mount as she won the mixed doubles title alongside clubmate and Yorkshire county player Mike Tolman, from Flockton, who saw off the challenge of the Kim Atkinson and Daniel Sinclair in the final.
In the women’s doubles the title was won by Huddersfield’s Victoria Cran, who has been playing on the American college circuit and Wagstaff, who defeated Charlotte Kershaw and Holly Horsfall.
Home club hope Euan Wilson-Baig came close to scoring an upset in the Under 12 section as the final went to a tie-break.
Wilson-Baig, who had knocked out the No1 and No6 seeds on his way to the final, won the opening set against Finn Ranson, of Sheffield’s Graves club, but lost the second set and then the deciding tie-break.
Tournament organiser at the Edgerton club Becky Lee said: “It has not been the easiest of weeks with the weather and the showers have posed a problem or two.
“But on the whole it has proved to be another hugely successful tournament."
