FIJI'S Annie Shannon and Tarani Kamoe created history by winning the girl's doubles title during the Wilson Canterbury International Tennis Federation Grade Four Championship in Ashburton, New Zealand.
Annie and Tarani defeated the Australian pair of Danielle McIntyre and Michelle Pitts in a closely contested final.
They won following a tiebreaker 7-5, 7-6 (3).
ITF Pacific Oceania head coach Andrew Mailtorok said the final consisted of long hard rallies.
He said Annie and Tarani withstood the strong challenge from the Aussies.
"Both Annie and Tarani put up a great fight," Mailtorok said.
"In the first set, the girls held their serves making less double faults and errors. They combined well."
"The second set was not easy because their opponents came back and reducing their error rate. However Annie and Tarani maintained their calmness."
"The girls played their best tennis knowing that they could win the match. They attacked their opponents often with winning shots in the tie-breaker."
"We are all proud of their achievement which has come through lots of hard training."
Fiji Tennis Association executive and head coach Naga Reddy said the win in New Zealand proved that they were grooming the right girls' doubles combination for the 2015 Pacific Games.
He said Annie and Tarani had developed good understanding between them.
