British senior tennis player news

Just thought that as not every British girl will warrent a unique thread this is a spot and some news may not be exclusive for one player so I figured this may be the place for news like that.

I saw on Britennis that 22 year old Manisha Foster won her first ITF in SES and just into the top 1000 moving up some 300 places

Re: British senior tennis player news

Lots of British interest in Surbiton main draw - a mixture of direct entrants, qualifiers, lucky losers and wild cards.

I'm just going to C&P the draw from the tournament thread, as it's the easiest way to see where all the Brits are placed:


(1)Ying-Ying Duan (CHN) v Sanaz Marand (USA)
Jaimee Fourlis (AUS) v Marina Melnikova (RUS)
Martina Caregaro (ITA) v Sherazad Reix (FRA)
(7)Robin Anderson (USA) v (wc)Harriet Dart (GBR)

(3)Lesley Kerkhove (NED) v Maria Sanchez (USA)
Catalina Pella (ARG) v Tereza Mrdeza (CRO)
Storm Sanders (AUS) v Julia Terziyska (BUL)
(8)Elitsa Kostova (BUL) v (Q)Emily Arbuthnott (GBR)

(5)Mayo Hibi (JPN) v (Q)Georgina Axon (GBR)
Katy Dunne (GBR) v Stephanie Foretz (FRA)
(LL)Emma Hurst (GBR) v Alison Bai (AUS)
(4)An-Sophie Mestach (BEL) v (Q)Magdalena Frech (POL)

(6)Ons Jabeur (TUN) v (SR)Melanie Oudin (USA)
(Q)Alexandra Stevenson (USA) v (wc)Emily Appleton (GBR)
(wc)Gabriella Taylor (GBR) v Renata Zarazua (MEX)
(2)Kai-Chen Chang (TPE) v (wc)Samantha Murray (GBR)

Re: British senior tennis player news

The three Brits at the bottom of the draw won, so Emily Appleton will play Mel Oudin, and Gabi and Sam will play each other.

The other Brits lost.

Doubles draw (and some results)

Hepburn/Phillips (GBR/GBR) d. Ghodrati/Harrington (GBR/GBR) 61 06 10-6
(4)Anderson/Bai (USA/AUS) v Miyazaki/Weymouth (JPN/GBR)
Murray/Taylor (GBR/GBR) v Caregaro/Mrdeza (ITA/CRO)

Marand/Oudin (USA/USA) d. Eklund/Stevenson (FIN/USA) 63 64
(3)Pella/Reix (ARG/FRA) d. Pitak/Pitak (GBR/GBR) 61 62
Grey/Terziyska (GBR/BUL) v Dart/Dunne (GBR/GBR)
(2)Kostova/Zarazua (BUL/MEX) v Appleton/Arbuthnott (GBR/GBR)

Re: British senior tennis player news

Hepburn/Phillips and Dart/Dunne reached the doubles quarters at Surbiton. Appleton/Arbuthnott lost in the semis. Murray lost to Oudin in the singles. All Brit interest snuffed out.

Re: British senior tennis player news

Eastbourne QWCs for Robson, Burrage, Christie and Dunne:

(1)Puig v (wc)Christie
Linette v (16)Allertova

(4)Brengle v (wc)Dunne
(wc)Robson v (9)McHale

(7)Lepchenko v Cirstea
(wc)Burrage v (14)Zheng

Tough draw. All unseeded players face seeds in R1, and the lowest seed is Allertova, ranked 80. Top seed Puig is ranked 43.

None of our WC girls are ranked above 280, so that's a massive gulf in quality.

Re: British senior tennis player news

Just noticed that Dominique Covington is seeded in 10K qualifying this week, which must mean she earned her first WTA ranking last Monday.

EDIT: and in her first match as a ranked player, she got double-bagelled by her unranked opponent.

Re: British senior tennis player news

Suzy Larkin has beaten the 5th seed at Antalya 10K (her opponent retired at the beginning of the second set), and so will enter the rankings after Wimbledon. Astonishing.

Re: British senior tennis player news

And now Larkin is one set away from a pro final.
