Humphrey to face Ramdyhan in Pegasus Open women’s final

—Miller/Andrew win men’s doubles title

Berbician Carol Humphrey will face a stern examination from young Nicola Ramdyhan in the women’s singles final of the Le Meridien Pegasus Hotel Open lawn tennis tournament which ends this evening at the hotel’s courts.

Humphrey should have her hands full against a confident Ramdyhan who recently snagged her first Pegasus Open girls’ 18-years-and-under title with a 6-4, 6-4 win over long time adversary Krystal Sukra.

Maen’s doubles winners Jeremy Miller and Jason Andrews.

The men’s semi-finals took place last evening with Jeremy Miller taking on Gavin Lewis while GBTI Open champion Anthony Downes came up against Leyland Leacock.

Should Miller make it to tonight’s finals he will be poised for a tournament hat-trick should he prevail in the final. Meanwhile top seeds Miller and Jason Andrews won the men’s doubles title in a showdown against Nicholas Fenty and Leacock.

Miller and Andrews scored a 6 – 3, 7 – 5 win over Fenty and Leacock to capture their third men’s doubles title this year.

The tournament’s presentation ceremony is expected to follow matches this evening.
