Georgia ready to serve it up

GEORGIA Allen isn't too fazed by representing New South Wales at the Bruce Cup in Canberra next week.

The national primary school tennis championships holds no fears for the 12-year-old year six student, because she's seen it all before.

Allen represented the state at last year's Cup, when playing out of her age group as a year five student.

"I'm pretty excited. I had a great time at last year's tournament," Allen said.

"The best thing was the fun our team had off the court, and we also did pretty well on the court too."

Last year, the team from New South Wales finished equal second, but was relegated to third on countback.

This year, Allen is hoping to go even better.

"I only lost one match in my singles last year, but now I'm in year six, I should be on level terms with all the players," Allen said.

"We play Queensland and Northern Territory first I think, so it will be exciting."

Allen, the only girl from outside the metropolitan area to qualify for the seven-girl squad, made the team after a strong performance at the state titles in Parramatta in May this year.
