December Showdown 2018
Talia and Crystal spent a few weeks on the road with Tate competing at the December Showdown and had some fantastic outcomes.
Playing a year out of her age group, Talia finished 5th in the 14s individual event, made quarters in the doubles, was undefeated at #1 for WA in the Teams event until the final against Japan, and had solid wins against 6 of the other best players in Australia along the way.
Talia also received a wildcard into the 16s event (at 13!) where she had a win against a player in the top 150 in Australia.
We congratulate Talia on what was an exceptional tour.
Playing at least two years out of her age group, Crystal finished 9th at the Victorian Hardcourt Platinum AMT, and 9-12th at the 18s event at the December Showdown - two outstanding achievements for her age and included 5 wins against top 60 opponents, one of which being a straight sets win against the #1 player in Australia in Crystal's age group.
We also congratulate Crystal on two outstanding tournaments.
After a solid year of improvement, Mauhan Dass competed in his first nationals where he won half of his singles matches. This is a noteworthy accomplishment and we say well done to Mauhan on a great first effort at national level.
Onwards to the summer competition period where many Brixtonators are competing thought out the summer. Good luck to all!!
