R1: Alexandra 3/0 Emily big upset

Alexandra Fuller (RSA) bt [20] Emily Whitlock (ENG) 13-11, 11-8, 16-14 (37m)


“I think I played well, my main thing going into this tournament was where my head space has been, so I just wanted to put in a good performance. I didn’t really mind what the result was.

“I just kept telling myself that I didn’t want to play another game, so I pushed really hard to get through the third game and then the match was over, so was trying to get myself going on every single point.

“I’ve never played Salma before, but I know she is a really nice, clean player, so I’m looking forward to a good game.”
