THE top seeds are through to the open singles semi-finals at the Sports World Easter Tennis Championship in Lautoka today.

Tito Bera the number one in the men's division defeated Devrath Narayan 6-4, 6-2 in his quarter-final fixture at the Regional Tennis Centre yesterday.

In the other quarter-final matches, Junior Benjamin beat Prasund Lal 6-0, 6-1, Raynal Singh downed Fesaitu Kamoe 6-1, 7-6 and Terry Rush beat Sumeet Sharma 6-1, 6-4.

In the semi-finals, Bira will face Benjamin while Singh will play Rush.

In the women's division, number one seed Annie Shannon breezed through to the semi-final after a bye.

In the quarter-finals, Lorish Puluspene defeated Ruby Coffin 6-4, 6-2, Georjimah Row beat Vinda Teally 7-5, 6-3 while Lorraine Banimataku defeated Mulan Kamoe 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 in a marathon match which lasted three sets.

Banimataku from Vanuatu relied on her experience to stage a comeback after losing the first set.

Fiji Tennis Association vice president Naga Reddy said Mulan was unlucky to go down.

Reddy said experience proved to be the vital factor as Banimataku fought her way back.

"Lorraine changed her tactics in the deciding set," he said.
