Cooks still in the tennis game

A win apiece for local tennis players Brittany Teei and Davina Hosking means another day in the Pacific Games womens singles tennis tournament for the duo.

Teei began strongly against her Vanuatu opponent to win 6-0, 6-1 only dropping one set in the match under the blazing New Caledonia sun.

Teei, seeded 4th in the womens tournament, said the match was a fantastic way to blow off the nerves.

I played her in the teams tournament earlier this week and it was a much tighter match I won 6-3, 6-4 but today I felt much better on the court, said Teei.

I learnt a lot in my first game against her (Vanuatu opponent) this week and I felt better about my game today.

Davina Hosking on the other hand started slowly dropping the first set 2-6 but the New Zealand based player dug deep and fought back to take out the next two sets 6-4, 6-2.

Both women wait to find out their next opponent in the knockout tournament where a loss means elimination from the competition.
