Tennis Whiz – Tali Sulcas

Tali Sulcas recently went on a tennis tour to Johannesburg and Pretoria, from the 4th to the 25th of July. Throughout the tour she competed in three tournaments.

The first two tournaments were South African National 14-and-under tournaments.  Tali won both the singles and doubles draw in the first tournament, which took place in Ellispark, Johannesburg.

In the second tournament, which took place in Benoni, Tali made it to the semifinals of the singles and she and her partner were runners up in the doubles competition.

The third tournament that Tali competed in was an International Tennis Federation 18-and-under tournament, where she was required to play in a qualification draw. Unfortunately, she narrowly lost in the final round of qualifying to a far senior player.

Nevertheless, the tour proved a success, as Tali’s national ranking has risen to place her in the top ten girls aged 15-and-under in South Africa.
