Nairn's Lisa Munro leapt to the top of the Tennis Scotland Leaderboard after her women's singles win in Saturday's West of Scotland's Open Championships at Giffnock.

Seeded 2, the 19-year-old Nairn player ended unseeded Sophie Dunlop's run of good form allowing her opponent only two games in a one-sided final played in blustery conditions.  Lisa's 150 points moves her into top position in the Leaderboard with only two events remaining to be played.

In contrast, the men's singles final was one of the longest in recent years. Edinburgh's Scott Duncan, seeded 2, raced to a 4-0 lead before Adam Stevenson fought back to win the opening set on a tie-break. Duncan then levelled the match at one set all before the Ayrshire player, about to start his third year at Stirling University but still young enough to contest the Aegon British Junior National Championships later this month, took command and the deciding set 6-2.

Stevenson's 250 points moves him up into fifth spot on the Leaderboard and in contention for a share of the end of season bonus from Tennis Scotland.
