Talented Border tennis prospect Lara Meagher won her second title in as many years at the Margaret Court Cup and has a chance to capture another today.
The 11-year-old teamed up with Amity Gabe from Port Stephens to capture the under-12 girls doubles event on Sunday and will look to add the mixed doubles to her record on the final day of the tournament.
Lara and fellow Margaret Court Tennis Academy player Billy Hilton take on another Border pairing in Ella McDonnell and Alexander Fraser for the mixed crown.
She also came close to a place in the singles final, but was eliminated by her doubles partner Gabe, 6-2, 6-3, in the semi-finals yesterday.

Lara's mother, Clare, said she has been in her element in the tournament environment.
"There was lots of local girls from the academy in the draw with her, which was great, but there was also a couple of girls from Sydney," she said.
"It was really nice for them to be able to play some different people and because it was round-robin, they've been enjoying the extra matches.
"She won the under-10s singles last year and being bottom age again in the 12s, it's a big step up, but all the girls have done really well and matched it with the kids from Sydney.
"She said she just loves playing match after match and those days are what you train for."
