The battle for the winning prize in the Manders Tennis Management Masters Invitational Tennis Tournament has been rescheduled to today at 3pm after an evening shower forced last night’s final between top seeds Tariq Simons and Trey Mallory to be postponed.

Simons reached the final with victory over Benjamin Jones on Wednesday, while the second semi-final between Mallory and Gavin Manders was delayed to Thursday because of rain, with youngster Mallory winning in straight sets, 7-5, 6-0.

Crowds are being restricted at Fairmont Southampton because of Covid-19 guidelines, but fans can watch the final live on Gavin Manders’s Facebook page today.

The final promises to be an exciting one between the island’s top young players, Simons seeded No 1 and Mallory the second seed.
