06 Jan Senior National Irish Indoors
Congratulations to the 2015 Irish Senior National Indoors champions. The tournament took place in Westwood Leopardstown on Dec 27th-31st.
The Mens draw was left slightly unbalanced with the No 1 seed BjornThomson forced to withdraw in the hours leading up to the start of play due to illness.
However this in no way detracts from the achievements of the eventual winner Simon Carr. At only 15 years of age he gave a real glimpse of his talent defeating the no 2 and 4 seeds on his way to the final. In the final he defeated the no 3 seed Vuk Budik in a closely contested and very entertaining match. The pair had met earlier in the day in the U18 Boys final with the result going in the Mullingar’s boys favour on this occasion too.
In the ladies event Belfast based Karola Bejenaru defeated Monstown TC’s Julie Byrne. Julie has represented Ireland in the Fed Cup last year at the very young age of 16 while Karola is hoping to have her eligibility confirmed in the near future.
The Mens doubles was won by Osgar O’Hoisin and his partner David Gardner, they defeated Rory Curtis and Cian Reid.
