Tennis: Double victory for Sophie

9 05 2009

SOPHIE ROBINSON of Dumfries Sports club has tasted great success in the north of England, plundering titles in Middlesborough and Newcastle over the last two weekends.

Sophie won the U14 title in Middlesborough over Easter without dropping a set and also was unbeaten in the Newcastle matchplay again without dropping a set.

On both fronts Sophie defeated girls a year older than herself and has now moved her rating up.

A regular in all the county teams, Sophie had been regularly playing the top juniors in Scotland with wins over all at certain times to replenish an ever-expanding trophy cabinet.

Tennis in Dumfriesshire is booming at present and kids from this region are making a good impression in tournaments afar. Alex Shearman of Lochmaben and Daniel McKiddie of Dumfries have also been playing regular county level tennis and there are numerous other emerging talents.
