The UK Pro League’s first ever event on grass is underway at Felixstowe Lawn Tennis Club
A mix of new and familiar faces have travelled to the east coast to start their grass seasons and the first couple days have delivered some fantastic matches. Billy Harris is certainly prepared for the competition, having been seen warming up on the grass courts with Andy Murray last week. Harris, who has played well over 100 UKPL matches, tops the Men’s draw and will be looking to add a 2nd UKPL title to his collection.

The surface isn’t the only newcomer to the UKPL; there are a few new faces in Felixstowe too. Johannus Monday will certainly be looking to challenge for the win on his UKPL debut, as will Isabelle Lacy in the Women’s.

Lacy is definitely one to watch; the 16-year-old was crowned 18U Junior National Champion in April. She is seeded second in the Women’s draw, which is topped by Alice Gillan- winner of Week 6 last year.
