Brasier secures a hat trick of wins at Bathurst Open

BATHURST young gun Tayla Brasier produced some champagne tennis in this year’s Bathurst Open to win all her three events in brilliant fashion.

Brasier won the open ladies singles and doubles plus the open mixed doubles, in what was described by many as a remarkable achievement.

Brasier, who is coached by Head coach at the tennis centre Andrew Mitton, carved her opponents up with her brilliant tennis skills.

'She had a really good championships to win every one of those games. None of those wins were easy either and they were very good matches,” Mitton said.

“She’s had a really great year of tennis. She’s now ranked number two for her age in NSW country and she went down a few weeks ago to the state finals and won them.

“I thought she’d be a really good chance to win there and she only missed out on going to the nationals, which are on right now, by just two spots.”

The open men’s singles was played in the true spirit of the game with local lad Matt Gibson winning the final 6-2, 6-4 over one of Bathurst’s young guns in Harry Evans.

Gibson let loose with his big shots and looked quite composed on the court.

In taking out the open ladies singles Braisier was full of running playing a wide range of craft shots, beating Dominique Mitton.

Coach Mitton had Brasier primed and ready to fire for the final and didn't disappoint the crowd with her brilliant play.

The open men’s doubles had some great tennis played with Andrew Mitton and Gibson winning the final over Alfred Wong and Josh Wong 6-2, 6-2.

The open ladies doubles was again another highlight for Tayla Brasier who teamed up with Megan Neville to take the final in fine style over Michelle Brasier and Rebekha Fisher 6-4, 6-2.

In the open mixed event Brasier was going for the hat trick and she didn't disappoint, teaming up with Evans to take the final 6-4, 6-4.

In A grade the singles winners were Alex Finall and Chloe Brasier. The grade’s doubles titles were won by Mark Siegert and Finall (mens) plus Stacey Markwick and Jillian Conn (women’s).

The A grade mixed doubles was won by Markwick and Siergert.

Aiden Smith was men’s B grade singles champion, Sam Reen and Illian Sakhrani won the men’s doubles while mixed doubles was won by Reen and Esther Wong.

The next major tournament coming up for the Bathurst Tennis Centre will be the AMT Gold Tournament starting on the 16th, already drawing over 200 entries.
