She won the G1 doubles title this week in Canada with longtime doubles partner and friend Emilie Francati.
Emily has become almost a bit of a doubles specialist on the ITF junior tour having won 3 G1 titles, the European Junior Championship B1 title, a SF at the GA Aus Open as well as finishing runner up at a GA, 2 G1s and 3 G2s.
Her draw for singles at the USO MD:
(16)Katharina Hobgarski (GER) v (SE)Karman Kaur Thandi (IND)
Evgeniya Levashova (RUS) v (Q)Carson Branstine (USA) Emily Arbuthnott (GBR) v Ingrid Neel (USA) (2)Dalma Galfi (HUN) v (wc)Alexandra Sanford (USA)
Looks really tough, I'm not expecting her to win tbh.
