Look out Wimbledon
By TONY WHITE
SHE dreams of one day winning Wimbledon.
Young tennis player Brittany Huxley is Grafton's latest State title holder.
The 10-year-old Westlawn Public School student teamed with Tara Hamilton, from Newcastle, to win the Under-10 girls doubles title at the NSW State Championships in Sydney.
They defeated Sydney pair, Genevie Ulanday and Michaela Shand, 6-1, 6-2 in an impressive display.
Huxley and Hamilton have proved a formidable combination and won a unique treble, the metropolitan, country and NSW doubles titles, without losing a set, emphasising their dominance.
Huxley also represented the North Coast in an Under-10 teams event as the No.1 player and in the process defeated doubles partner Hamilton who went on to win the State singles title.
"I really love tennis, it's a good sport," Huxley said.
"The competition is really good, you meet a lot of good friends and I like the training too."
She is coached by Phil Beckman.
"I'm hoping to go on with tennis and I'd love to win Wimbledon," Huxley said.
"My heros are Lleyton Hewitt and Alicia Molik."
Other sports the youngster excels in are cricket, swimming and athletics.
Huxley's latest title adds to her earlier win in the NSW Under-10 Champion of Champion singles titles she won two years in a row.
She also made the semi-finals of the Queensland Junior Championships.
This weekend along with Maddy Richey (Under-12s), Laura Billett (Under-14s) and Erin Billett (Under-16s), Huxley will contest the State Masters Finals in Gosford after qualifying through North Coast and North- ern NSW tournaments.
