Echuca College's Regan More finished runner-up at Cobram Lawn Tennis Club's Labour Day TournamentLUKE MCMANUS March 14, 2014 4:05am
Echuca College student Regan More came agonisingly close to clinching the Cobram Lawn Tennis Club Labour Day Tournament open final on the weekend.
More, 17, finished runner-up to Queenslander Luke Harvey 6-4 6-0 after winning his first four singles matches.
He also qualified for the doubles quarter-finals, before again coming undone to Harvey.
Competing at the tournament for a third year, More said it was his best tennis result.
‘‘On the first two days I played some of my best tennis,’’ More said.
‘‘I haven’t really played that many matches in so few days, so I was pretty wrecked by Monday’s final.’’
More, who has played since the age of five, said he had developed later than his rivals and learned to compose his game on the court.
‘‘I’m usually pretty erratic, but I’m getting more consistent,’’ More said.
‘‘My serve’s come on a bit too.’’
The teenager’s serve has broken the 200km/h mark, which could come in handy when he represents the Echuca Lawn-Rich River premier one team in Goulburn Murray Lawn Tennis finals next weekend.
The ever-relaxed More, who felt no nerves before Monday’s final, said he would focus on his VCE studies while squeezing in tournaments at Bendigo and Shepparton this year.
‘‘I might take a gap year after school and focus on my tennis a little more,’’ he said.
‘‘For now I’ll focus on school.’’
