AO Q1: Mandy Minella battles past Katie O'Brien 3:6 7:5 6:3 (from 3:6 2:5 down)

Awesome fighting spirit from Mandy

Came back from 3:6 2:5 in second set and from 0:2 30:40 in third set!

It looks like Mandy is ready for another cinderella run

This has destroyed me. Absolutely gutted. Katie down to about 260 in the rankings, and I wouldn't be surprised if she thinks about calling it a day. The past 18 months have been so horrible, and its a long road back to the top 100 from here.

She fights so hard, gives it everything, but came up short today. No idea what happened at *5-2 in the second but she fell apart, and then had points for *3-0, 3-1* and *3-2, as well as a break point in the final game in the third.

So sad, I really thought all 3 brits were going to cruise through today

Goodness me, Katie. She had a plethora of chances in that match - both in the second set and the third set!
