Heather won 4 games in a row from 5-6* 15-40, and never looked back, beating McNally 7-6(3) 6-2.

Re: Brits in Wimbledon

Harriet drops the first set against her lucky loser opponent, with the 1 break point taken of the 10 the players had proving decisive.

Re: Brits in Wimbledon

Set apiece, though I was taking a last chance to see(*) a couple of players, so didn't see anything of the second set.

(*) one of them has turned their match around, so perhaps not the last chance

Re: Brits in Wimbledon

Harriet to serve for it, but after 7 consecutive breaks (so different from the first set), the odds are against her killing it off here.

Re: Brits in Wimbledon

McHale blazes a forehand long, and it's MP.

Saved. No mistake this time. Deuce

And gradually forces Harriet back in the next point. Advantage McHale.

Ace no. 1. Deuce

Off FH CC winner. MP no. 2

Service winner.

GSM. Dart d. McHale 4-6 6-4 6-4

Re: Brits in Wimbledon

I think that must be Harriet's first MD singles win in a slam.

Yep, and the first time she's had a favourable draw.

She gave a very good account of herself last year against Pliskova, on her first MDWC, then qualified for Oz, and got double-bagelled by Sharapova.

Re: Brits in Wimbledon

Not such good news for Swan though. Out in straight sets, and will drop below Bains and Burrage in the rankings, to about 250.

Re: Brits in Wimbledon

Silva-Grey got thrashed. I always liked Grey-Nicholls better...

Re: Brits in Wimbledon

Doubles WCs all took a pasting today. Some had really sucky draws:

Krejčíková and Siniaková beat Bains and Broady, 7-5, 6-1

Chan and Chan beat Dart and Dunne, 6-2, 6-4.

Van Uytvanck and Minnen beat Christie and Swan, 7-5, 6-2

Voskoboeva and Cirstea beat Silva and Grey, 6-0, 6-3.
