Hannah Slyth delivered one of the biggest upsets of the OJC, defeating number one seed Lijana Sultana in the final of the Under 17 Girls 3-0 (16-14, 14-12, 11-8). 

Sultana earlier this year defeated Slyth convincingly in the Australian Junior Open earlier this year, with Hannah crediting the win to her increased fitness and mobility. 

“The match was really tough. Lijana is a really good player, she whipped me three love earlier in the year. 

“I said to myself coming into this tournament I am just going to come back and play the best match possible. 

“My fitness and movement have been my big areas of improvement, and in this match I tried to attack as much as possible because she is also a very attacking player,” said Slyth.
