Hannah Bagshaw BEAT Lena Keothavong 6-0, 6-4
Danielle Brown LOST TO Melanie South 7-5, 6-4
Claire Peterzan LOST TO Claire Ricketts 7-5, 6-0
Now onto Saturday's results. First the play-offs
Nicola Allan BEAT Melissa Gibb (walkover, after losing 1st set)
At first, it just looked like cramp as Gibb was being treated.
So I was really surprised when she withdrew.
Elizabeth Flint LOST TO Lena Keothavong 4-6, 3-6
Danielle Brown BEAT Georgina Hingley 6-4, 6-7, 6-2
Mhairi Neish LOST TO Claire Peterzan 6-7, 6-3, 3-6
Then the quarter-finals:
Rebecca Llewellyn BEAT Danielle Brown 6-4, 6-0
Hannah Bagshaw LOST to Claire Peterzan 6-3, 5-7, 6-7
A very tight match. Two well-matched players with similar style. Neither of whom has a particularly quick serve
Melanie South LOST TO Nicola Allan 2-6, 2-6
A thoroughly exhausted looking performance from South, who looked barely recognisable from the player who has performed so well in recent weeks.
Claire Ricketts BEAT Lena Keothavong 6-3, 6-2.
Also, it was interesting to see Sam Smith (ex-player, now Eurosport analyst) watching the morning's play.
The semi-finals tomorrow will be
Rebecca Llewellyn (1119) V Claire Peterzan (2.1)
Claire Ricketts (1236) V Nicola Allan (2.1)
with the final in the afternoon
