2014 Romanian International

Five Welsh players continued their season's campaigns at the weekend at the Romanian International where Aimee Moran continued her good form by beating English player Solenn Pasturel before losing to eventual finalist Laura Sarosi. Doubles pairs Gwilt and Font and Morgan and Strange both came unstuck in round 2 to an Indonesian / French combo and a young Polish pair respectively.  Font and Gwilt however did enjoy a first round win against a strong South African pairing. In the Men's singles Font had an outstanding win against Lucas Claerbout of France the number 5 seed and world ranked 117. After a battle which lasted 1 hour Font eventually came through 22-20 in the third. The North Wales player couldn’t quite overcome Grassmuck from Austria later in the day when he lost a three set encounter but he is regularly starting to take big scalps as the season progresses.
