Well done Matt Blood, Ericka Dodridge, Scarlett Hutchinson (pictured and video below) and Lauren Armstrong for posting a series of strong results in regional Grade 5 and 4 events in the last two weeks - superb job. 

Holly Hutchinson qualified for her first ITF Grade 5 Main Draw event in Mombasa, Kenya by beating German Shanna Krimatschow 6-4, 6-2 but came up a little short in the first round of the main draw against Alena Mashtakova (RUS) by the same score.

Katy Dunne, competing out in Florida at the Eddie Herr Championships played wild card Olga Ianchuk (UKR and ranked 450 WTA) 0-6, 6-0, 5-7, with Coach Pete Thorne commenting: 'Katy was 5-3 up in third set, no match points and kept going for it. A tight match that could have gone either way, they both played a world class set each as you can see from the scoreline!'
