9 year old West End Tennis Club player Jamie Mackenzie recently swept away all competition in Australia at the major tennis festival in Brisbane, the Rod Laver Classic during the July school holidays.

Competing in the 10 and under events, Jamie went on a hot steak of 18 unbeaten matches to claim the singles and the doubles of both the lead in and main event, the Rod Laver Classic.  At the completion of the competition in Australia, Jamie traveled to the highly regarded BTT Tennis Academy in Barcelona, Spain to train on the red clay for two weeks with some of the best players and coaches available.  During this time he was lucky enough to work with Rafael Nadals coach Francois Roig who had just returned from Wimbledon.  

Jamie would like to thank Rohit Reddy and the Tanoa Hotel Group for all the support and kindness they have shown him.
