Tennis is back.
After a bye, Shepparton Lawn rivals Lakers and Bulls will go head-to-head tomorrow in the Goulburn Murray Lawn Tennis Association.
The Bulls are coming off an impressive victory last round, defeating league-leader Tatura by four sets.
Luke Dixon and Eliza Long were dominant, winning their singles rubbers, while round three’s hosts cruised home in the end to win all four doubles rubbers.
Dixon has failed to lose a single set this season in singles and doubles, making for an intriguing battle with potential Lakers opponent Nick Gattuso or Samuel McKenzie-McHarg tomorrow.
The Lakers began their season with a bye before finally managing to break through with their first win of the season last round, when they defeated bottom-placed Numurkah 5-58 to 3-39.
Gattuso comfortably beat Mark Mills in the former’s first hit-out of the season, adding to his doubles win with McKenzie-McHarg earlier in the day.
A win for the Bulls could potentially lift them to the top of the table, but if the Lakers win they will close the gap on their second-placed opponents.
Tatura will host the Shepparton Hornets at Tatura.
The Robins lost their first match of the season in round three, while the Hornets, who have only played twice, will be aiming to secure their second win of the campaign.
Fergus Kearney and Cal Curtis shape as key combatants if the Hornets are going to muster a win, but they will need to nullify Robins powerhouse duo David Starling and Regan Moore.
While in the women’s section Brooke Starling and Leanne Moore will be hoping to assert themselves over Hope Curtis-McDonald, while her partner-in-crime, Isobel Gribben, is expected to return.
Numurkah will be hoping to turn things around after the bye this weekend.
