Claire Vigrass successful defends her titles

November 6, 2011: World Champion Claire Vigrass had breezed through her earlier rounds before taking to the court today at the National Tennis Club to defend her singles and doubles titles.

In the singles, she faced Karen Hird, a fabulous retriever who nudged ahead at first against the defending champion.  But Claire soon found her dominating game and while Karen pushed the champion throughout, it was Claire who won the 2012 title,  6/2, 6/3.

Both players had the luxury of a half hour break before finding each other on opposing sides of the net once again in the doubles final.  Karen paired up with Freddy Adam, an impressive ball striker who has competed successfully at the highest level for many years.  Claire paired up with local player, Amanda Avedissiana, although relatively new to Tennis, has an outstanding lawn tennis pedigree.  Amanda's powerful volleying complemented Claire perfectly, and they overcame Freddy and Karen in straight sets, 6/3 6/1.
