NATABUA High School student Annie Shannon bowed out of the South Pacific Open Junior Championship after a brave show at the Regional Tennis Centre in Lautoka yesterday.

Shannon, the lone island player to reach the girl's singles third round lost to Momoka Yoshida of Japan in straight sets 6-3, 6-1.

Earlier, Shannon accounted for Jasmine Victoria of Australia 6-2, 6-4 in the second round.

Fiji Tennis Association vice president Naga Reddy said Annie played well in the high level tournament.

Reddy said the International Tennis Federation Grade Four tournament attracted players from Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Hong Kong, China, United States and Pakistan.

"The standard of tennis is very high with the ranked players from the other countries participating. Some upsets have been recorded especially in the boy's singles where both the top two seeds lost in the second round."

The tournament continues today.
