Jamaica beat Caribbean All-Stars to win King Alarm Cup

Jamaica topped their Caribbean counterparts to take the inaugural King Alarm Cup tennis tournament at the Eric Bell Tennis Centre in Kingston following Saturday's action.

Having lost both doubles encounters on Friday, the Jamaicans headed into Saturday's final day tied with the Caribbean All- Stars.

Rowland 'Randy' Phillips got by Justin Roberts 6-4, 6-2, while Blaise Bicknell was similarly dominant in beating Darian King in straight sets, winning his contest 6-1, 6-2.

However, it wasn't the same story for Daniel Azar and Nicholas Gore who lost their matches. Michael Major beat Gore 6-0, 6-3, while Azar went down 4-6, 4-6 to Matthew Foster.

It means both teams were dead even on matches won and sets won and had to be separated on games won with the Jamaicans coming out on top via that tie breaker.

The Jamaican Davis Cup team will take on Estonia from February 4-5 next year at the Eric Bell Tennis Centre.
