The North Otago Closed/Southern Sub Champs came to a thrilling climax on Sunday with two tightly contested finals.
Robin Jamieson put on an impressive display in the men's singles final against Janos Manyai but couldn't prevent the Hungarian from taking the top prize in a 6-3, 6-2 victory.
Jamieson complimented the 24-year-old's sharpness and agility across the court.
"He played a good match. He's played at a different intensity and he was better on the day," he said.
"He's got good ground strokes and is quick around the courts and can hit both sides."
Manyai won't be back in action again until next year and said fitness was the key to the tough win.
"It was a really good match. It was long rallies," he said.
"The court was very slippy and he used a lot of slide but I think at 3-3 in the first set he became tired."
Rebecca Dellaway and Nicky Wallace battled it out in the women's singles final.
The 14-year-old was quick out of the traps taking the first set 6-1 but Wallace used her extra experience to stage a gritty fightback taking the second and third sets 6-4, 6-3.
Dellaway said Wallace's serve and consistency was the difference between the two finalists.
Doubles duo Glen Claridge and Jeremy Ferguson were too good for Josh Dalziel and Thomas More taking the men's final 6-2, 6-3.
Phil McMaster and Judith Wallace took the women's doubles final 6-3, 6-3 over singles winner Nicky Wallace and Julie Craig.
Tournament organiser Peter Simpson said there was an impressive level of tennis on show throughout the day.
"It was high-class tennis all day from the men and the women," he said.
"It was a good day in general and everybody played well."
Tennis will resume on January 12 for the North Otago Open Tournament at the Oamaru Grass Courts.
