noooooo! she was sooo close!

the sad thing is, she probably wont even get a wildcard into wimbledon. its bound to go to fitzpatrick based on her ranking

Well done Aravane, scaring scenario in the third set but still alive with her fighting spirit! :D
I hope that Elliot & Broady get WC at Wimbledon, Fitzpatrick has done nothing since her SF last year in the juniors draw. Sometimes rankings shouldn't be taken into account, those 2 youngsters are more deserving!

Argh! Sooo close! At least she was clearly worthy of her spot in the MD :hug:

So Katie and Naomi are through, Elena and Amanda out.

Anne has yet to play and either Mel or Anna are going home too.

Hopefully you can keep up this form in Eastbourne.

Katie, Naomi very winnable next matches. Mel through :)

Anne needs to get past Bondarenko, but if she is playing well enough to get past that match she should win the next :)

Go GB girls :)

Shame about that missed match point but a good run all the same.

Amanda certainly looks as if she belongs within the top 100. Shame she couldn't have converted on that matchpoint, but now she will have a lot of pressure to deal with, based on her results this week and her rise this year. Fingers crossed she will come back next year and be winning final set tiebreakers and not losing them :kiss:
