TODAY – Mon 11th, Day THREE

SP_6291Qualifying complete – for the men at least – it was on to the Glass Court at the Airco Arena for the first round proper, top half, with eight quality matches which saw mixed fortunes for the home players and both Elshorbagy brothers safely through.

Meanwhile at the University of Hull it was Women’s qualifying finals, another eight matches as players fight for a place in the World Series draw – there was a series of brutal matches with the USA’s Sabrina Sobhy creating the big upset.
