FIJI reps Tarani Kamoe and Annie Shannon recorded mixed results during the first round of the Wilson Canterbury International Tennis Federation Grade Four Championship in Ashburton, New Zealand.
Kamoe won her singles encounter while Shannon suffered a loss in her match.
Shannon ranked fourth in the tournament lost in straight sets to Nagisa Nisimura of Japan 6-4, 6-2.
ITF Pacific Oceania head coach Andrew Mailtorok said Annie lacked patience and consistency.
Mailtorok said she made a lot of mistakes.
"There were times where she would hit winners and win a couple of points in a game but then followed up with silly mistakes," Mailtorok said.
"Even though Annie lost that match she kept her head up and fought to the end."
Kamoe, the number five seed, defeated Monique Belovukovic of Australia 6-2, 6-2.
Mailtorok said Kamoe hit big serves making unforced errors.
"She hit hard with consistency and accuracy," Mailtorok said.
"Tarani did not let her opponent get a free point. Her shot selections were good as she made her opponent move around. Tarani's approach shots were spectacular."
"When she was at the net she was like a wall to her opponent who had a hard time to pass her. Tarani displayed great winning attitude."
In the girls doubles Shannon and Kamoe defeated the pair of Mira Ruder Hook and Lucia Celeste Young 6-3, 6-3.
"Tarani and Annie displayed great communication before scoring every point," Mailtorok said.
"Both players were steady and moved well at the net doing some amazing volleys. Annie played with a winning attitude serving incredibly with a lot of spin better than how she served early in her singles match. This made things easy for Tarani who was aggressive at the net finishing the points left and right."
Marcia Tere-Apisah of Papua New Guinea defeated Laura Isbey of New Zealand 6-1, 6-1 while Heve Kelly of French Polynesia beat Patrick Brian Cameron of New Zealand 6-4, 6-2.
