Gold Coast, Australia (Monday 7th March, 2011); Roxy Pro contest organisers took advantage of the early morning conditions to also complete Round 4 of the ASP World Title event at Snapper Rocks.
Sydney glamour girl Laura Enever booked a quarter-final showdown with four-time world champion Stephanie Gilmore with a convincing victory over former world champion Sofia Mulanovich (Peru).
The World Tour rookie with the model looks clocked a combined two-wave score of 13.10 out of a possible 20 to send Peruvian superstar Mulanovich packing with 10.83. Giant-killing Lennox Head teenager Tyler Wright also survived the sudden-death round with a powerful performance against Frenchwoman Pauline Ado.
Wright, who defeated Gilmore in the opening round, posted an impressive 16.67 to dispose of Ado with 11.50 and will now face Brazilian pocket rocket Silvana Lima (BRZ) in the quarter-finals.
Hawaiian surfing royalty Coco Ho also powered past Round 4, registering 15.46 to dominate Brazilian veteran Jacqueline Silva, who could only manage 5.70. Ho will now face Australian world No.2 Sally Fitzgibbons in the quarter finals while fellow Hawaiian Carissa Moore will battle former world champion Chelsea Hedges for a semi-final berth after dominating American Courtney Conlogue
It’s likely that the Roxy Pro presented by Land Rover will finalize tomorrow at Snapper with the Quiksilver Pro presented by Land Rover expected to crown its 2011 champion on Wednesday.
