Smashing summer for Felix Gill

It's been an amazing month of competition on the clay for 17 year old Felix Gill who is now ranked 74 in the junior ITF world rankings.

Felix had a run of success which started in Kyiv, Ukraine from 19th Aug to 25th Aug where he claimed the singles title after beating Bulgarian Simeon Terziev 7-6, 6-4.

The next stop was Gyor, Hungary for the grade 2 international event which was played from 28th Aug to 1st September. Felix continued his form to seal his first singles title at this level(grade 2) beating Swiss Jerome Kym in the final 6-4, 6-4. Felix paired up with French player Martin Breysach in the doubles to claim another title. Felix and Martin didn't drop a set during the doubles event and beat Jerome Kym and Austrian partner Lukas Neumayer 6-3, 6-3 in the final.

Next and final stop for Felix before he returned home for a well deserved rest was a grade 2 in Prague. Felix had a good start beating Alberto Orso from Italy and Jasza Szajrych from Poland before losing out to in the quarter finals to Swiss player Maurus Malgiaritti.

This was an amazing run, winning 15 matches in a row and one that moved him up 50 places in the world rankings. Felix will be competing in Mexico then will head off to Miami in December before setting off for his debut at The Australian Open in January.

As the governing body for tennis in Britain, we can’t achieve our vision of opening up our sport without them, so I’d like to encourage as many people as possible to nominate an individual, club or venue that makes a real difference in their local community so we can recognise their achievements and thank them for all that they do.”

Venue Shrewsbury Club

                
The Herefordshire & Worcestershire 9U Mixed Team played teams representing Staffordshire, Warwickshire and Shropshire at The Shrewsbury Club on Saturday 17th August 2019 as part of The County Cup Championship 2019 Group E.

Arrival:
Everyone makes their own way to The Shrewsbury Club. Thank you to the parents and grandparents as the players arrived in good time for a warm up. The event is held indoors and we take a court for our team. Our team seem a mixture of excited and nervous – the coaches try to inspire the team with some words of wisdom and reflections on the previous week’s loss in a friendly match against a strong South Wales team. Supporting the team, competing hard, and finding a way to win matches are the order of the day!
