In a Tennis Dream February 05 2017, 0 Comments
"It feels like I'm in a dream," said Peers, who is coming off a title run at the Australian Open with Henri Kontinen. And his partner, Groth was feeling in equally great form when he said “We came up to do a job and I thought we played great today. I’ve played as good a match as I’ve played all year.”
Such was the ecstasy of the Australian doubles winners who triumphed over Czech pair, Jan Satral and Jiri Vesely 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 in one hour and 30 minutes, which include 11 aces.
The 28-time champion Aussie squad has not dropped a set through three matches, including singles routs by Jordan Thompson and Nick Kyrgios on Friday. Played at the Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club, former venue of the Australian Open, Groth and Peers powered their nation into its second World Group quarter-final in three years. They will face either Switzerland or the United States next.
While the world watches this global tour, every day in SA, children are earning their trophies and medals on the tennis courts around the country. They are inspired by the professionals powering ahead, earning their awards. They are also inspired by the many who teach them, so painstakingly, to hit the ball over the net and not give up! So, remember, when you win an award or are presented with a trophy, somewhere along the line of your success, you will need to thank a teacher. Tennis trophies to be seen here:
