NICK HARDT continued his love affair with the JITIC Regional Junior Tennis Championship when the curtain fell on the under-18 division Saturday at National Racquet Centre, Orange Grove Main Road, Tacarigua. The match between the two highest ranked juniors to ever to compete here was expected to be a classic, but it turned out to be one-sided as the 138th-ranked player from the Dominican Republic whipped top seed Juan Serrano 6-3, 6-2 for the title. The 108th-ranked Mexican had dropped just three games when the two quared off earlier this year, but Hardt is a totally diffent player in this tournament.
