Impressive performances for Tennis First grantees in Bolton


19 year old former Tennis First grantee Jodie Burrage was on form at the GB Pro Series in Bolton winning the doubles event and reaching the final of singles. Jodie came through two rounds of qualifying and four main draw matches on the way to the final. In the semi finals she beat another Tennis First grantee Emma Raducanu in a tough three set battle. She eventually lost the final to Russia’s Vitalia Diatchenko 6-2,6-2. 

In doubles Jodie partnered with Alicia Barnett to beat Laura-Ioana Paar and Helene Scholsen 6-3, 6-3 in the final to take home the trophy. 

Tennis First grantee Emma Raducanu beat second seed Paula Badosa Gibert ranked 127 on the WTA rankings in an impressive performance.

Good luck in Sunderland Jodie and well done to Emma too.
