Last weekend Liepaja Tennis Sport school students Rebeka Margareta Mertena and Patrīcija Špaka participated in ITF tournament in Great Britain – “Nike Junior International Nottingham”.Different from other tournaments during this season, the tournament in UK takes place on outside tennis courts. This situation made it more difficult to compete for our players, because all tournaments in Latvia during this season, takes place indoors.Patrīcija overcame 1st round, but in the 2nd round she lost to E.Batiste Dodrige (UK) with 3:6, 5:7. Meanwhile Rebeka was among seeded players, which gave her 1st round without game, but in 2nd round Rebeka had few small problems to get further and lost to K.Barnes (UK) with 2:6, 6:4, 6:7 (2). Despite losses, our girls had great Doubles tournament, where they lost only in Semifinal to M.Devey Smith/ A.Loughlan (UK) with 5:7, 3:6.
Already this week will take place the 2nd leg of the tournament, where in the Main draw will compete both our students.
