Fiji women’s team made up of Ruby Coffin and Saoirse Breen Fiji faces Northern Mariana’s in the women’s final of the Punjas sponsored Pacific Nations Cup 2022 at the Regional Tennis Centre in Nadovu, Lau­toka today.

This is after an incredible perfor­mance by the duo who outclassed top seeded Samoa to take a 2-0 vic­tory in the women’s singles com­petition yesterday. They have been undefeated in the tournament.

Team Fiji led by Sugar City’s Ruby Coffin defeated Mahina War­ren 6-3, 6-3 while Spain based and number one seed Saoirse Breen defeated Eleanor Schuster 6-1, 6-0 in a cliché.

Coffin said that she has been en­joying her game alongside team­mate Breen who had been on fire since Day One in the court.

“We are looking forward to the finals. I hope to pull this through.”

Northern Marianas defeated Cook Islands 2-0 to advance to the final.

Vanuatu defeated Papua New Guinea to settle 2-1 in the fifth and six-playoff.

In the men’s competition, Samoa will face Tahiti in the final.

This was after Tahiti defeated Northern Marianas 2-0 while Sa­moa beat Vanuatu 2-0.

Hosts Fiji struggled right throughout the tournament lost to Cook Islands 2-1 in the 5th/6th playoffs.
