Isabel came back from 2 -0 down to defeat Melissa Berry from Sussex 3-2. She achieved this through strong attacking play both Forehand and backhand. She served brilliantly opening up her opponent with clear winners. She then lost to Scarlet 3-0 although was very competitive throughout the match leading several times in all games.
She then stepped up to plate in the under 12s she again played Scarlet and took the first game off Scarlet 11-7 and lead 4-0 & 8-6 in the second, she couldn’t convert and was pegged back but gave her loads of confidence. She then played other England ranked players Habina Seo (her dad changed the bat after game 1-which was objected too) from Hampshire leading first game 6-2 before being pegged back but again competitive in all games with good attacking play. She then played Feiyang Wang from Essex very good player (she won the title although she looked 14) who looped the ball with ease she was different class although good experience for Isabel.
The tournament was Isabel’s best performance to date and is definitely moving forward.
