Another Quarter-final on court 1! The action keeps on coming. Here it’s debutant vs debutant as Anna Brogan faces Grace Piper. Piper finished top of a really tough group to qualify and Anna Brogan only finished behind Emily Appleton in her group. Should be a cracker!
17:43 PIPER BREAKS IN THE FIRST SET 0-2
A brilliantly deep return from Piper on break point gives her the game! Brogan can only put it to the bottom of the net. Great start in her first knockout game at the UKPL!
17:54 PIPER BREAKS AGAIN 0-4
A superb start for Grace Piper in this quarter final, Brogan hasn’t had a sniff! She is now a double break up and hasn’t looked like she has broken a sweat!
18:02 PIPER WINS THE FIRST SET 0-6
What a set of tennis! Amazing from 18-year-old Piper as she sweeps the first set without dropping a game. She was incredibly clinical, winning all 3 break points that set.
18:15 BROGAN BREAKS SERVE 0-6, 2-0
Much better from Anna Brogan, she didn’t turn up in the first set, but straight away in the second she has a break.
18:25 PIPER BREAKS BACK 0-6, 2-2
The change in fortune didn’t last long. Piper is back level straight away with a fantastic break.
18:37 PIPER BREAKS AGAIN 0-6, 2-4
Grace Piper is able to get a two game lead in the second set. It’s a disappointing one for Broady as she hits her approach shot long when she looked in a good position. Piper in control now.
18:49 PIPER WINS THE MATCH 0-6, 3-6
A game to love to finish it! A really satisfying day’s work for Piper as she is into the semi-final! This is turning into quite the week for the 18-year-old on debut!
