National Premier Tennis Finals – day 3

In the third day of the National Premier Tennis Finals, Sunderland’s representatives, Virgin Active Wearside, were knocked out after losing 4-0 to Bromley.

Wearside had previously beaten Gosling and Gloucester to reach the semi-final of the national competition, which is being held in Sunderland for the first time in 12 years.

Bromley will now face number one seeds Warwick, who have British number four Dan Evans competing for them, in the final on Sunday.

Wearside captain David Boddy said: “It’s been great, the boys are really fired up, they’re disappointed they’ve lost but they’ve been happy with their performances.

“If you had said before the tournament we’d reach the semi-final I would have bitten your hand off, I think they’ve played well.

“They’re a good team Bromley and they’ll push Warwickshire in the final it may even end in a shootout which will be good for the crowds.”

Warwick had beaten Loughborough 4-1 in the earlier semi-final and it’s all set for a tight final on Sunday.

David said: “I think it’ll be close, I think Warwickshire will probably just squeeze it but you just don’t know in tennis.

“It comes down to those one or two big points, if those guys [Bromley] play them better than the others then they’ll be the ones that become victorious.”

The final will take place at the Virgin Active club at 2pm. Anyone wanting to attend can buy tickets on the door.
