Tennis - North title for Anrside teenager

By Sports Desk
BENJAMIN Mitchell stamped himself out as a rising star in the tennis world by winning the Bowker North of England Junior Tennis Championships for Under-18s.

It is a considerable achievement by Benjamin of Pennard House, Uplands Drive, Arnside for he is still only 16.

He took the title by beating his Wrexham-based opponent in straight sets 6-4, 6-3.

As well as taking the Under-18 singles title, Benjamin came runner-up in the Under-21 competition and he and his partner were beaten finalists in the Under-18 boys doubles.

So far his success has earned him a prestigious 2.1 National Lawn Tennis Association rating - very high for a boy of his age.

hey, someone has to step up to the plate now that Henman keeps "hurling himself to defeat" (to quote the Guardian) :)

Don't trust the Guardian on tennis issues - last year all their reporter was concerned about was using Henman's stuffy Wimbledon image to try and illustrate a political point about the British class system. Having said that, I have to admit I've never even heard of Benjamin Mitchell. Nice to see that TBE dropped in for his obligatory pot-shot at British tennis, though.
