However, despite wildcard entries Zac Robinson and Sheree Moore both going down in their respective matches, it was a learning curve for both 17-year-olds.
“I played well, I wasn’t really worried about the outcome,” Zac said about his 6-1, 6-2 loss to Geelong 20-year-old Adam Lasky.
“It was a good learning experience, I don’t get exposed to tennis like this very often.
“It’s a very professional competitioncompared to the other tournaments I play in – it helps my performance.”
Zac spoke highly of his opponent, who made use of his experience to get on top.
“I’ve seen (Lasky) play before, he’s a good grass-court player,” he said.
“He can hit a ball a lot harder than me.
It’s good to get exposed to that type ofcompetition.”
Lasky, who made the second-round qualifiers of the tournament two years ago, was modest in victory and gave a nod to his younger opponent.
“Zac’s a good grass court player, being from here,” he said.
