Harriet did well to turn that second set round from a break down but couldn't repeat the trick.

7-6(1) 6-7(5) 6-1 defeat

Those two results are almost exactly what everyone would have predicted right down to the set scores.

Addict, not that it matters but you've got the sets the wrong way round. Harriet lost the first and won the second.

Saw a bit of Eden; she played well apart from her finishing shots. So many times she built a great point then messed up the putaway or the net shot. Such are the differences between top 100 and top 300 players I guess.

 Thanks - I had the players listed in the draw order and copied the results from somewhere else. Now corrected.

More court time and some not bad prize money for getting into the doubles:

A. Sasnovich/Y. Xu v H. Dart/E. Silva

Indeed, a nice little sum - $7,900 to the pair. And 105 points reward if they can win. Well done Eden on securing the wild card !

L32:- Aliaksandra Sasnovich (BLR) / Yifan Xu (CHN) CR99 (83+16) v Harriet Dart (GBR) / Eden Silva (GBR) CR431 (120+311) [WC]

Last match on Court 2 tomorrow (Sunday 19th)

Our girls lost in a MTB

Pretty poor play by both in the tiebreak, tbh, at the start, to get 2-8 down, especially from Eden. Had a little rally but nothing of any note..... shame ... the others weren't that good...

Bit of a missed opportunity I feel, a few costly errors from Silva in the early stages of that tiebreak.

Xu was terrible. Definitely could have won that with a better start to the MTB.
