As the curtains closed on the Under-14 section of the Wadadli Bowl, Antiguan player Samaar Davis walked away with the Girls Singles title in the Main Draw at the National Tennis Centre.
Davis defeated Iyana Paul of St. Lucia 6-2, 6-1 in the finals on Wednesday to hoist the title.
She then secured her second title of the day as she partnered up with Zoey James to defeat Paul and Aysha Hosam 7-5, 6-2 in the Girls Doubles finals.
Fellow Antiguan Jaiden Julien, however, fell short in the boys’ finals, going under to Bermudian Antonio Warner 6-3, 6-3.
