June 2011 - Road to Wimbledon 2011

Appeti players have been busy over the last few months competing in our Canterbury Centre’s Road to Wimbledon. Congratulations go to Evie Robertson who won our girls event by beating Andrea Sreckovic 6-1, 6-2 and James Davis who after a very close second set beat Daniel Gould 6-1, 7-6(2) to win the boy's final.

Andrea, Evie, Dan and James were all invited to the County Road to Wimbledon event where 26 clubs from all over Kent compete to find the ultimate winner that would play at Wimbledon in the National Finals. During the first weekend of playoffs both girls played well in their round robin draws but particular mention goes to Andrea who beat Christine Oni in the third set tie break. This was a great achievement as her opponent was two rating levels above her.

In the boys draw Dan Gould won both his matches to join James in the quarter finals which will take place next weekend. Out of the 26 clubs that participated in the Road to Wimbledon, we are proud to have two players in the last eight of the county!
