Jamea lost in the semifinals at Surbriton to Laura Granville, 6-4, 7-5, but then played two qualifying matches at Birmingham today, beating Jane O'Donohue 6-4, 6-1 and Aiko Nakamura, 6-4, 6-0, and qualifying for the main draw, go Jamea!!!
Today Jamea lost to Laura Granville 7-6(5), 6-4. But Jamea had a great tournament in Birmingham and her match against Laura was closer than the last match that they had. Hopefully Jamea can keep up her awesome play from this week in the weeks to come, especially Wimbledon!!!

In the opening round last week she drew the #2 seed and beat her comfortably (62 63).
In R1 this week she drew the #1 seed (#222) and destroyed her (61 61).
