16-year-old Jasmine Conway impressed on debut by getting through a tough group on her way to the quarter finals. What an achievement it would be to progress further here! Millie Bissett stands in her way on court 1!
11:35 CONWAY BREAKS SERVE 1-3
A great start from Conway as she breaks the serve of Bissett early in this one to race into a lead. She has been so solid throughout this week, you wouldn’t bet against her to keep the form going!
12:10 CONWAY HOLDS 2-5
After a mammoth game, lasting as long as the entire match so far, Conway finally manages to hold serve. She stretches out in front!
12:20 BISSETT BREAKS 4-5
Such disappointment for Conway! After the mammoth hold, her next service game she finds herself at 0-40. She can defend one break point but not the next as Bissett breaks to get her back into the set!
12:37 TIEBREAK TIME! 6-6
Both players hold for the rest of the set, taking us into a tiebreak in the first set!
12:45 BISSETT WINS THE FIRST SET 6-7
This game has been so intense! Bissett and Conway are matching each other shot for shot. Bissett wins the point at 5-5 to get herself a set point. She has volleyed expertly all week and it’s a text book deep volley that seals the set!
13:13 BISSETT BREAKS BACK 6-7 3-3
Back level in the second set! Millie Bissett manages to get to break point and she converts with a confident winner to equalise.
13:21 CONWAY BREAKS SERVE 6-7, 5-3
Bissett puts a simple slice backhand well wide to give Conway the opportunity to serve for the second set and put us into a third set tiebreaker!
13:32 6-7, 5-4
This remarkable game continues to produce pulsating tennis. Conway is able to defend two break points while serving for the set, but when she gets a set point herself she can’t convert! Another break point defended! Bissett puts a forehand in the net and we are back to deuce! After Conway gets ahead again a massive Bissett forehand takes us back to deuce again!! Remarkable stuff!
13:37 CONWAY WINS THE SECOND SET 6-7, 6-4
It wasn’t easy but Conway wins the second set! Her 4th set point is converted and sets up what should be a brilliant third set tiebreak to decide the place in the semi-final!
13:44 BISSETT WINS THE MATCH 6-7, 6-4, 2-10
The start of the tiebreak isn’t as close as the rest of the match so far… Bissett manages to get 5 points ahead at 7-2 and only needs 3 points to reach the semi-finals. She eases her way to 9-2 and has 7 match points here. Only 1 was needed! A brilliant match ends with Bissett through to the semi-final! A great display from Conway too though.
