Victor Welsh International 2018 Day 2
Day Two- Victor Welsh International 2018
Day two of the tournament started with two three setters
immediately on Court two, with both Dolan/Naing and Hammarberg/King going all
the way. Number one seed Spanish Penalver came back from a lost first set to
win 14-21, 21-11, 21-10.
As the men’s doubles got underway, there were mixed results
for Wales. William Kitching and Andrew Oates beat their English opponents in
two sets 21-19, 21-17. Martyn Lewis was similarly successful with his English
partner David Hong, beating English Law and Taylor 21-17, 21-9 in two sets.
There were, however, some losses. Welsh Chong and Victor were defeated by
English Flynn and Hemming, and their compatriots Jones and Strange were also
knocked out by English Clare and Roe. Scott Oates and Nichols Strange lost to
King and Parsons in the first round.
Welsh number one Jordan Hart played a close match against
Sara Boyle, succeeding after three sets 21-12, 15-21, 21-14, and continues onto
the next round. Lisa Curtin continues her winning ways after knocking out the
younger Hart yesterday, beating Portuguese Leite 21-10, 21-19 in two sets.
Number one seed Gayle Mahulette wins comfortably against English Teh 21-16,
21-8 to progress to the next round. Last year’s winner conceded to Amalie Kudsk
due to a knee injury after less than one game.
