Court 1: Lauryn John-Baptiste vs Alice Gillan

Friday of Week 6 of the UK Pro League kicks off with some 5th-8th playoff action from the women’s draw! Yesterday both these two players lost their quarter-finals and now enter two playoffs to decide their final position. John-Baptiste lost a close match against Katarina Stresnakova in three sets, while Alice Gillan suffered a comeback defeat against Tiffany William after having won the first set 6-0.

11:28 Alice Gillan breaks serve 

Both players have been hanging on in service games so far but John-Baptiste can’t hold on to this game as Gillan grabs a break. Throughout this week John-Baptiste has shown her ability to bounce back, so this first set is far from over.
