On the weekend of Sep 26 to 28, Brampton tennis enthusiast’s were out in force this past weekend in support of the 1st annual Faiola Import Brampton Open. The event entertained the province’s top Open and 4.0 competitors on some of the finest clay courts in the country. Participants we’re treated to breakfast, lunch, and dinner during the three days of competitive play highlighted by a Porketta (a savoury, fatty, and moist boneless pork roast of Italian culinary tradition). With a number of competitive matches taking place on the weekend, the tournament was highlighted by the Men’s and Women’s Open finals on the Sunday afternoon. In the Men’s Open, Iancu Ghinda (Ottawa, On) dug deep after dropping a decisive 6-0 set to force a third against Oakville’s very own ATP tour ranked Martin Beran. The fans in attendance we’re treated to a number of jaw dropping points with Beran imposing his championship tactics and closing out the match in three, 6-0, 6-7, 6-2. Men’s Open Final Martin Beran def Iancu Ghinda 6-0, 6-7, 6-2

The Women’s event show cased the young up and comer Olga Donchu, who was able to serve her way through the tournament upsetting the number 2 seed Tiara Higuchi, number 3 seed Anna Maria Buraya, and finalist number 1 seed Rachel Cruickshank. From watching the match, it was easy to see that there’s a new Canadian Missile on the war path.
Women’s Open Final: Olga Donchu def Rachel Cruickshank 6-3, 6-3

The Men’s 4.0 final was won by OTA journeyman Paul Ciccone, who cut short the championship run by Brampton Tennis Club’s hometown qualifier Johnny Nguyen. Although Johnny was able to upset number 2 seed Cole Ciccone, his stamina seemed to fade when pushed to a third set against the older yet craftier Ciccone. Men’s 4.0 Finals: Paul Ciccone def Johnny Nguyen 4-6, 6-2, 6-2
