Success for Simons

July 28, 2011

Savannah Simons maintained her excellent run of form by winning two titles at the Chandos LTC tournament.

The European Maccabi Games triple gold medallist won the Girls Singles final against Monisha Kochhar with an authoritative display of control and power steering her to a 6-0, 6-0 win.

Simons teamed up with Brielle Koulen to win the Ladies Double title, beating Michelle Ballheimer-Wayne and Cecily Wuenscher 7-6, 2-6, 6-4.

Simons, the current Middlesex Under 16 and 18 Junior Doubles Champion, was involved in four finals overall. Ballheimer-Wayne, together with Chandos coach Vince Ranson, pipped Simons to the Mixed Doubles crown.

There was also success for Ivor Spiro (Men's 60+ Singles), Spiro and Stephen Lambert (Men's 60+ Doubles), Emanuel Mond (Men's 45+ Singles), Gabriel Freedman (U16 & Boys), Max Benaim (U14 Boy's) and Jamie Osrin (12 Boy's). Awards were presented by David Bernstein, chairman of the FA, as well as Chandos, and Edward Freedman, Chairman of Club Committee, in a competition organised by club secretary Laurel Alper and Brenda Stewart.
