Secretary/development officer of Tennis Fiji Sachin Reddy applauded the performance of the local players.

“The performance of our local players has been very good,”Reddy said.

“This tournament is a build-up for our squad who are preparing  to make the team to the Pacific Mini Games in Vanuatu.

“Players are playing to their level best and doing well. I think with this kind of competition we will expect the team to do much better in Vanuatu.

“We have a few locals who have reached the finals and semifinals which is a big plus for the side.

“This will help us gauge them and see who we select according to their performance in the Fiji Open,” he said.
