An electrifying Dawson duo, hailing from Bremer Bay, conquered all challengers they faced on their way to an Albany Open tennis tournament A-grade title at Emu Point Tennis Club on Saturday. Brock and Levi Dawson finished undefeated through the round-robin fixtures to book their spot in the decider before thumping pair Sam Graham and Tom Street in the final 6-2. Throughout the fixture, the Dawsons finished with an impressive games total of 45. A strong easterly blew across the courts causing havoc for baseline stroke play throughout the competition but Brock Dawson, who boasted one of the most booming serves at the tournament, was troubling any returner across the court. When his first serve was returned — if at all — Levi Dawson was at the net ready to mop up with a crunching volley. “The wind worked in our favour with our serves,” Brock Dawson said. “We are both fairly used to playing with the wind but today was another level at times but we dealt with it. “As a lefty serving, it’s a huge advantage, especially in the serve, because that’s where you generate most of your spin. “My serving has always been a big advantage of mine and I have always worked on it.” The Dawsons broke serve in the second game which applied early pressure on their opponents. That pressure proved insurmountable for Graham and Street as the Dawsons broke again before serving out the match to win 6-2. Brock Dawson — who won the tournament with his father Drew in 2021 — said it was a special moment to do it with his younger brother. “At the start, the chemistry was a bit rough but it got better as the day went on,” he said. “It was a really good day of tennis.” Brock Dawson is set to return to the USA where he attends Jacksonville College for his tennis. “I’m flying out very soon so I am playing as much tennis as I can at the moment so I’m ready for the season.” Emily Pinney and Jodi Martens won the women’s A-grade after claiming five sets and 35 games, while Rene Oelofse and Zali Spencer finished second with four sets and 34 games. Heath Nankerville and Ian Colan converted their minor premiership into B-grade glory after a gripping 25 minutes of tennis with Craig Jordan and Peter Godfrey. After winning all six sets in their group stage games, Nankerville and Colan secured the B-grade title with a nail-biting 7-6 victory. The women’s B-grade competition was awarded to Michelle van der Brugge and Robyn Groenewold who won all six sets. Wendy Birch and Bec Jefferis finished runners-up with fours sets and 38 games. The club also hosted a mixed doubles open on Sunday with a strong contingent from the Saturday fixtures returning to chase doubles glory. Alex Riggall and Dan Bourke defeated Rene Oelofse and Kat Myburgh 6-3 to win the A-grade title. Lynda James and Geoff Davidson bettered Vanessa Hillman and Greg Cook 6-2 to claim the B-grade championship.
