Sanders' barn-storming victory

West Australian Storm Sanders yesterday blitzed her Japanese opponent Shuko Aoyama at the Launceston Tennis International to take out her first ITF Pro Circuit win.

Sanders previously failed to qualify in the games leading up to Launceston, but came out blazing in a 6-4, 6-4 win to secure the $25,000 prize money.

Where windy conditions seemed to throw more opponents, Sanders used it to strengthen her heavy top-spin game.
