Conor Edwards (TCC) and Charlotte Carey were both double winners at today’s Welsh Championships in Cardiff. Conor made the result of the day to beat Daniel O’Connell (who celebrated his 18th birthday) in the semi finals and then take Lee Morgan in the final of the junior boy’s singles. In the cadet boys Conor took out Ryan Oyler in the semis whilst team mate Alex Prosser beat Chris Griffiths of Ferndale in the other semi. Conor won the battle of Tonypandy players in the final 3-1.
Charlotte was looking to emulate Conor in the women’s events and did so by beating Chloe Thomas in the final of junior singles 3-1. Chloe had fine wins against Megan Phillips (Q final) and Angharad Phillips (S final) to reach the final. Charlotte had a tough match against Nicole Hall in the opposite semi but came through in the end. In the cadet girl’s tournament Charlotte beat Caitlin Williams, who was having a fine day, in the Semis. Beth Roberts beat Laura Edwards in the 2nd semi to set up a final with Charlotte. The final went to Charlotte 3-0 to complete the double on the day.
Other players who were having good tournaments included Naomi James, Kate Roberts, Carys Webster and Callum Evans.
