The TSS First IV put on a dominant display of tennis from the first point of the day, sweeping Brisbane State High 8 matches to 0. Starting with singles, all four TSS players took care of their matches in straight sets with captain Jack McCarthy winning 6/1 6/2 at the #1 position, Alec Braund winning 6/2 6/4 at the #2 position, Max Ashley winning 6/1 6/2 at the #3 position and Timmy Yeung Packer winning 6/1 6/2 at the #4 position. All 4 boys showed impressive discipline and maintained a high level throughout their matches.

In the doubles, Jack and Timmy produced the first ‘double bagel’ win this year for TSS Tennis, disposing of the BSHS #1 pairing 6/0 6/0. Alec and Max were on track to replicate this result, winning their first set 6/0 against the BSHS #2 pair, but a strong fightback from the BSHS team led to a much tighter 7/5 set win for TSS.

Nic McKenzie made his second appearance for our First IV in the final round off doubles, pairing with Max Ashley to win a hard fought 6/1 3/6 10/6 match against the BSHS #1 pairing. Nic and Max both made some clutch plays in the super tie breaker to finish an impressive performance for TSS.

The team travel to Toowoomba next Saturday to take on the TGS First IV at 8:30am.

After a delayed start due to rain, our 2nd IV came out firing with impressive doubles matches with both pairs winning the first set 6/1. Both pairings went on to win their doubles giving them an early lead in the Tie. Continuing that momentum into singles play, Sam Strid took a convincing win 6/2 6/0 at #1. Tom Schwerkolt dispatched his opponent 6/1 6/1 at the #2 position, whilst Joe Castor secured the win for the 2nd’s at #2 with an impressive 6/4 6/0 score line. Our Second IV sending Brisbane State High packing with a dominant 5-1 win.

11A’s came out red hot with Nick McKenzie leading the charge in singles with a 6/3 win in the number 1 position. Continuing with that good form into doubles with his partner Saxon Gemeri, going undefeated through both doubles matches, cruising 6/4 and 6/1 in both matches. Unfortunately In the end the 11 A’s fell agonizingly short of winning by one match, going down 5-3.

The 10As had a huge win over Brisbane State High School on Saturday, taking all eight matches to end up 49-14 victors. It was a dominant performance all round from the classy TSS team, who got better as the day went on. Jack McDonald dropped just three games for the day, as he and doubles partner Ethan Carrick claimed the opening doubles 6-3 and crushed their second match 6-0 before Jack went on to make very short work of his opponent for another 6-0 in his singles. Ethan had the toughest singles match of the day, with his opponent raising his level significantly in what would prove to be State High's only hope of a win for the day. But Ethan held his nerve well, and closed out a very hard-fought match with a win in the tie-break. Harry Spittle and Chaad Hewitt also started with a 6-3 win in the opening doubles, before going on to smash their opponents 6-1 in the second match. Then they both continued the winning streak, with Harry overpowering his opponent and taking a comprehensive 6-0 win and Chaad cleaning up the day's final match with cruisey a 6-1 victory. The 10Bs had an equally great day, taking the win 48-19. Andrew Woo and Buddy Holley were far too good for the opposition, winning both doubles matches 6-1, before taking their singles matches 6-2 and 6-1 respectively. Tom Ramsay and Will Jackson did extremely well to come from behind in their first doubles to win 6-4, and take the second in a convincing 6-2. Tom then went on to play a great singles match, putting great pressure on his opponent's serve to win 6-3. Once again, the only hope for B.S.H.S. to win a set came in a singles tie-break, and once again they were denied; this time by Will, who served well to play through knee troubles and finish the clean sweep for TSS. Special thanks to the boys for their efforts in preparing the courts for play after heavy rain on Friday. The 10C’s showed real class on the tennis court today with a 45-22 victory. Taeyun Kim and Momo Hu were brilliant winning both their doubles easily. Both boys carried their form into singles along with Casey Amos and Morgan Guy who all clinched singles victories.

The 9A’s battled against some very tough competition, with the final score ending in a tie, 35-35 (total games score). Kosta Karathanasopulous and Kenan Little had an extremely close doubles match against the BSHS No.1 doubles pair, yet managed to pull through with a 7-5 win. The 9B’s won in a landslide victory with the final game score being 45-19. Each of the team members displayed outstanding doubles skills, which significantly helped elevate the overall game score. Special mention to Jack Banyard for his amazing singles win, 6-1. The 9C’s had a very convincing win this weekend 44-18. Max Dewhurst and Damian Blackmore set the tone early winning a close doubles 7-5. Ethan Melton and Cormac Anning were ruthless only dropping 1 game across both their doubles. Max, Damian and Ethan brought it home with solid 6-1, 6-0 and 6-1 wins respectively. The 9D’s were extremely competitive across their doubles and were very unlucky not to have come away with more wins.

The 8A’s had a great day of tennis with an outstanding doubles performance from Ethan Ong and Michael Keet winning their straight doubles 6-3. Jack Parkinson managed to win in his singles, 6-3. Against BSHS, the 8B's had extremely tough opposition. While they played with great effort, the team unfortunately lost.

The 7A's fought valiantly, but lost to State High in the end. This loss wasn’t without some impressive TSS victories however, with A4 Nicholas Hill winning his singles with an impressive comeback in the tie break. B1 Jaxson Burgess made quick work of his opponent in the 7B's, winning 6-0. His teammates backed him well, taking out competitive wins in both singles and doubles. The final team score was 37-36 TSS. Huge win for the lads. The 7C’s are continuing to improve as the season progresses. Alex Peereboom and Jack Stockbridge performed well at the number 1 doubles position winning their first match 6-3.
