Day 5 recap

On day 5 of week 6 of the UK Pro League there were 6 playoffs on either court as the competition heated up to decide how many vital ranking points players would receive in Chelsea.

The 4 games in the 5th-8th playoff games started off with a impressive win for Alice Gillan over Lauryn John-Baptiste. Both players were unlucky to have lost their quarter-finals but here Gillan shone, wrapping the victory up 6-4, 6-4. There may have been slight signs of fatigue for John-Baptiste after her marathon games throughout this week, including a win over Eliz Maloney. Maloney featured in the other playoff game, defeating replacement Maddie Brooks in typical Maloney style, battling to a 6-3, 6-1 victory. Maloney displayed her signature tenacity and stickability as she kept the ball in play when all seemed lost.
