MICHELLA Haet upset top seed Katerina Valos during the South Pacific Open Junior Championship girl's singles semi-final at the Regional Tennis Centre in Lautoka yesterday.

Haet who had a world junior ranking of 1874 defeated Valos ranked 395 in straight sets 6-3, 6-2 in the all Australian affair.

In the other semi-final Alicia Smith of Australia beat Hsin-Yuan Shin of Taipei 6-2, 6-3.

In the boy's semi-final, Kiranpal Pannu of New Zealand defeated Richard Yang of Australia 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 while Anthony Jackie Tang of Hong Kong downed Jamie Fraser of Australia 6-2, 6-3.

Tournament referee Patrick O'Rourke said majority of the overseas players were staying back to participate in the inaugural Oceania Open Junior Championship next week.

"Next week's Oceania Open Junior Championship is an International Tennis Federation Grade Five event," O'Rourke said.

"The tournament has been set up by Oceania Tennis Federation so it could be held around the region."

The finals of both the boy's and girl's singles will start at 8.30am today.
