Jordan Hunte serves to a comprehensive victory over Trinidadian rival Sebastian Sylvester in the final of the boy's category of the St. Lucia SR4 U16 Transitional Series Tennis Championship.

Hunte deserves a gold medal after his remarkable win today in the final of the boy's category. Last month at the u16 Mixed team Championship in Trinidad Hunte defeated Sylvester in three sets 6-4 6-7 10-8. He has repeated and improved his performance today as he defeated Sylvester again in straight sets 6-1 6-4.

Both boys played top class tennis giving their all, keeping their composure in what seemed to be a very unpredictable match. Hunte breezed his way through the first set capitalizing on the many errors made by Sylvester, he won 6-1. In the second Hunte was up 5-2 serving for the match when he was broken by Sylvester and Sylvester held serve making the score 5-4.

What seemed to be a comeback for Sylvester was quickly stricken by Hunte when he closed off the match serving at 40-15. Hunte was very composed and played diligently with no pressure claiming his first place position in the tournament. he was declared champion by match official Mr. Ricardo Francois.
