Steffie Carruthers Created Pacific Oceania Tennis History

Samoan born Steffie Carruthers created Pacific Oceania Tennis history when she became the first player ever to win a professional tennis event.

Playing with her Mexican partner, Carolina Betancourt, in the ITF $10,000 doubles event at Manzanillo, Mexico they withstood a tight 3 setter in the semis to again also win the doubles final in a Match Tie-Break against the all American pairing of Tornado Black/Dasha Ivanova 6-1,4-6,12-10

This picture says it all and in talking to Steffie she says that “finally winning that Championship Point was such an amazing feeling; and that she will continue to work hard and strive for more success on tour.”

She also wants to thank everyone for all the support she is receiving from her tennis family in the Pacific
