Semesa Naiseruvatu retained the men’s singles title of the Kontiki Finance sponsored Pineapple Cup.

Naiseruvatu beat Rajnesh Prasad 21-18 21-18 in the final at the Suva Blowing Club yesterday.

Naiseruvatu said defending the title was quite a challenge but he was happy to finally secure the win.

 

HARDWORK

“It was hard playing and trying to defend your title and I have been blessed to get this win,” he said.

“I have done the hard yards and I think composure, consistency and experience were my trump cards during the game.

“After this is the national open singles and I will have to prepare for that and it will be another challenge for me.”

Women’s singles winner, Litia Tikoisuva said it was tough right from the pool games but she managed to get through.

 

BACK TO BASICS

Tikoisuva said the key to her win was getting back to the basics and just trying to get a  grasp of what she normally does.

“The final was anyone’s game and I must commend Loretta Kotoisuva for giving me a good game as I managed beat her 21-11.

“I kept telling myself that I needed a draw since I started a little late in the game.”

 

WHAT’S NEXT

Tikoisuva added that she would now prepare for the Champion of Champions tournament to be staged in Sydney, Australia in late October.

“This is a preparation for the championship, if you win that’s a bonus and when you loss you keep on trying,” she added.
