This match was pretty diabolical. Matilda really blew the third set with shocking errors off nothing balls. And Sierra, who at times could barely walk between points (although she recovered miraculously towards the end), struck a clean winner at 5-5* deuce and for no reason wandered into the net to accidentally give Matilda the point. Then sent a basic high backhand into the score board at the back of the court to give Matilda another break.

Matilda then double faulted twice to get broken again at *6-5.

Quality improved in a very tense tiebreaker, Matilda went up *4-2 but Sierra stepped up and because Matilda can't do very much meaningful with the ball other than pat it about, she didn't win another point.

Out 6-3 4-6 6-7(4)

I'll keep saying it until it happens. Matilda would really benefit from going down the US college route. A good programme would I think do wonders for her development, plus give her the time to get physically stronger if she does want to go Pro later.


 Mike Dickson writing in the Daily Mail 10th September said that the nearest thing to Raducanu in age bracket looks like 17 year old Matilda Mutavdzic who is ranked 18 in the world juniors and reached the third round of the US Open girls event. If she does down the US College route she won't be in the BJK Cup team for  a while then. As an aside do  any of our girls who go down the US College route ever  join the  pro tour. The US College route for golfers always looks like a  finishing school for  soon to be professionals.

The singles finals are set, unusually with all top 8 seeds

In the girls Robin Montgomery turned round her match against Solano Sierra, to back up her win against the Andorran top seed. She is ranked WTA365 after some good results in Challenger events, but lost fairly easily to Jodie Burrage in main draw qualifying here. Robin takes on sixth seed Kristina Dmitruk from Belarus, who beat Ranah Stoiber in the third round at Wimbledon. She has played a smattering of 15K events with one final

The boys features the number 1 and 3 seeds - Juncheng (Jerry) Shang, a Chinese lad based at the IMG Academy in Florida, and Daniel Rincon, a Spaniard who you may remember losing to Jack Pinnington Jones in the Roehampton final. Neither has made much impact on the main tour yet, but Shang is only 16 and has improved with every slam he has played (QF Roland Garros then SF Wimbledon)

...and the winners were Robin Montgomery (6-2 6-4) and Daniel Rincon (6-2 7-6(6) ). Montgomery went on to claim the girls doubles title as well in an all American affair (match reports on Colette's blog)
