JARROD Savage has claimed his 13th Boort Easter tennis title.
Savage, who first took out the single’s crown in 2006, returned to tournament glory for the first time since 2018.
He was edged out of the honour by Aiden Fitzgerald in 2018.
And one of the first to congratulate the Heatherdale club professional in Melbourme was a spritely Alf Stringer, winner of the title in 1961.
Savage also won the mixed doubles, teaming with wife Natalie who was beaten in the women’s singles championship by Julie Wardle.
