Amanda Carreras wins 84 singles games in a row to win Island Games 2019

Amanda won the individual singles title and also helped Gibraltar to the team title. She won all her doubles matches in the doubles and team event too though did lose some games in doubles. The opposition clearly wasn’t elite but obviously great concentration skills.

Team Event:

QF : Millie Coombes (Isle of Wight) 6-0 6-0
SF : Joanna Dyer (Guernsey) 6-0 6-0
F : Laura Feely (Isle of Man) 6-0 6-0

Individual:

R2: Clare Clarke (Jersey) 6-0 6-0
QF: Joanna Dyer (Guernsey) 6-0 6-0
SF: Clara Catchot-Sintes (Menorca) 6-0 6-0
F : Tsvetelina Havren (Gotland) 6-0 6-0

Wow, really impressive. I have not heard for any of her opponents.

Hopefully she keeps it up!

Maybe Heather Watson should enter next year to get re-used to winning matches.

That was basically a pro player versus some recreational players who play tennis every other weekend.

Re: Amanda Carreras wins 84 singles games in a row to win Island Games 2019

Congrats to Amanda and this seems an impressive stat.

But I wonder how hard she actually had to try for this. From the names I've seen (and googled) that were her opponents they aren't even Div 3 college level, no information about playing tennis outside of these games. These are just club players, and not even good ones. Amanda probably only played these because they were held in Gibraltar.

Sorry for the bump, but possibly ironic that today she herself was double bagelled in 25k Imola R2 by Stefania Rubini.
