The two played two straight sets and started off at a low pace as they seemed to size each other up. They then stepped up their efforts as the game wore on, dishing out some entertaining play in a closely contested set. The two baseliners played relatively the same game in the opening set with long rallies.
Mabhechu's strength in the second set was his staying power, as he managed to contain his opponent. Mbizo's shoulder injury early in the second set affected his game as he started playing with a limp. He struggled to keep up pace as his opponent seemed to get stronger. He was whipped 6-0 in the set. In the girls' final, Tanaka Chakanyuka beat Phatsimo Ruele 6-3, 6-3 to be crowned champion. The two rivals put up an intriguing fight.
The Botswana Tennis Association (BTA) used the sixth edition of the tournament to grade players for the new national ranking system. BTA president, Nelson Amanze said the tournament's new format made the ranking system easier. "We used a back draw format, which enabled us to determine the strength of each player head to head in terms of abilities and who won what," Amanze explained. The tournament attracted players from Zimbabwe, Francistown, Selebi-Phikwe and Molepolole.
BTA used the tournament as a selection and preparatory event for next January's Africa Junior Championships set for Namibia. Amanze said the tournament remained important in the BTA calendar. "I am thankful to Electric Junction for their continued involvement in the sport; it has been developing young players nationally," he said.
BTA reiterated the need to make the tournament bigger. "We had one country this time and next year we hope for more, Lesotho and Zambia wanted to come but could not because of the Zone Six," Amanze said. The sponsors restated their commitment to continue bankrolling the annual tourney.
