Rising local tennis ace, Ruan Roelofse took the ITF Futures event in Durban after he defeated Britain’s Nikolaus Moser in the final on Sunday. The women’s title went to Katerina Kramperova of the Czech Republic after she beat South Africa’s Surina de Beer in the final.
There was still some consolation for De Beer though as she teamed up with Britain’s Jennifer Allan to win the women’s doubles title against Denmark’s Malou Ejdesgaard and Nicole Rottman of Australia.
