DARIO HINDS LOST the best dressed battle to the more flamboyant Aaron Barker but more importantly won the closest match of the night to move into the next round of the inaugural A1 Supermarkets Lance Bynoe Masters Open Road Tennis Tournament at the Rubis Sports Club on Sunday night.
With a completely colour-coordinated, outfit former table tennis player Barker was equally coordinated in his wristy cross court drags and backhand flicks to take the first game before stumbling 21-19, 15-21, 19-21.
Hinds was at his best after losing the first game countering with class and Kodak poses while Barker became undone by a number of contentious calls which rattled the latter where he made successive errors.
The decider saw the scores being locked up to 16. (KB)
