Success for JSTA and Evan Morgan!

Success for Jim Stewart's Tennis Academy, Quinta do Lago.

The recent Regional Sub 12 Tennis championships held in Portimao over the last 2

weekends resulted in success for the Jim Stewart Tennis Academy in Quinta do Lago.

Evan Morgan, who has trained at the academy since the age of 5, won the boys singles

title, and was partner in winning the boys doubles and mixed doubles titles. A 6.4 6.0,

victory in the singles set the tone for a great day of success. Playing in a match of high

quality against opponent Hugo Munoz from Faro both boys looked to take an early

advantage. A couple of early breaks of serve gave the advantage to Evan and despite a

rally by Hugo, Evan closed out the set. The second set was equally competitive, however

the balance tipped in Evans favour after a tight 5th game which went to 10 duces.

In the doubles Evan partnered Hugo, a team that has seen them win tournaments

throughout Portugal over the last 6 months. A 6.1 6.2 victory was secured against Pedro

Graca and Rodrigo Cristo from Tavira. In the mixed doubles Evan Morgan and Leanor

Chaves from Balaia Tennis Club, teamed up to beat the team from Portimao of Ines Leal

and Pedro Prazers. A tight, nervous affair resulted in a 7.5 7.6 victory.

A series of great results which are the produce of a great team. The club, coaches, and the

training partners. Next Jim Stewart Tennis Academy take on the best clubs in Portugal in

the National Sub 12 teams, at Vilamoura in July.
