Watched Madison Brengle play Miki Miyamura in 2nd round of the qualifiers in the Aeogon Trophy in Nottingham, UK (75k grass court tournament).
Good match and interesting clash of styles. Brengle's got a strong ground game and seems rock solid off both wings. Not necessarily spectacular but very solid and good percentages. Very few unforced errors. Miyamura had some beautifiul looking strokes and a lovely 1HB which is great to see in the women's game. As it was grass courts, Miyamura played alot of slice which was effective, though occasionally pulled trigger on her 1HB which is lovely looking stroke. They occasionally came to the net, and when the did, the net player almost always won the point.
They split the first two sets, before Brengle streamrollered the 3rd with Miyamura looking tired or as she had lost heart. Gutsy performance by Brengle who kept on going throughout all 3 sets and looked mentally tougher than her opponent.
