Jones Hits Big

Auckland teenager Sacha Jones has earned her biggest career win securing the US$25,000 ITF Darwin Challenger tournament with a 6–4, 6–1 win over Western Australian Bojana Bobusic. Showing a cool head in the mid-afternoon Darwin heat, Jones was able to hang in the contest and, like a top player does, capitalised fully when her chance arrived at 5–4. Bobusic, who had served quite well, gave Jones one break-point opportunity and that was all the 18 year-old New Zealander needed to claim the set. “It’s just a fantastic feeling, this was my first final of a $25,000 event and to win it is so rewarding,” Jones said. “I had fond memories of Darwin when I won back-to-back ITF events here in 25 and I’ve got a few more now.”
