LOCAL players Krishan Raju and Ruby Coffin lost in their respective singles finals matches at the West Pacific Regional Championships in Lautoka yesterday.

Raju went down in the boy's under-16 final to Charlie Junior Benjamin of the Solomon Islands while Coffin lost to Emma Maucotel of Vanuatu.

However there was joy for Fiji in the doubles category. Coffin combined with Mulan Kamoe to win the girl's U16 final.

Raju paired up with Shivneel Chand to win the boy's U16 doubles.

International Tennis Federation Pacific Oceania development officer Darran Wrighton said 80 per cent of the winners were regional scholarship holders based in Lautoka.

Wrighton said this just showed that their development program was progressing well.

"The finals were great to watch," he said.

"There was good support from the crowd. There were close matches with some lasting three sets.

"The top two in each grade apart from the U12 category are based at the Regional Tennis Centre.

"Next will be the North Pacific Regional Championship in Guam and that will be followed by the East Pacific Regional Championship."

The top five players from each of the categories from the three regional championships will qualify for the Pacific Oceania Junior Championship in Lautoka in August.
