Ilkley Trophy Day 2

Ilkley Trophy report – 18.06.2019

Queens Club saw the first complete washout in many a year as play was not possible at the West London Tennis Club. Andy Murray’s much heralded comeback has been delayed one day until Thursday. The second day of the LTA’s Ilkley Trophy was full of surprises, with young British star Paul Jubb knocking out Brazilian Thiago Monteiro and fellow Brit Katie Swan knocking out second seed Pauline Parmentier.

Jubb took the Brazalian (who is ranked 475 places above him) to a third set, winning 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 in front of a thrilled Yorkshire crowd. Jubb now goes on to play no. 9 seed Dennis Novak. Brydan Klein lost his first game to fellow Brit Jan Choinski but came back to win the second and third set, winning the match 6-2, 5-7, 2-6.

Liam Broady’s match against Stefano Napolitano, which was suspended last night due to poor weather, ended in defeat for the left-hander with the Italian winning 6(5)-7(7), 2-6. Another British player, Evan Hoyt, lost out to Korean Soon-Woo Kwon 6-0, 6-4. In the doubles, Indian pairing Jeevan Neduncheziyan and Purav Raja proved too strong for Broady and Scott Clayton, winning 6(6)-7(8), 3-6.

20-year-old Katie Swan had a sensational win on court two, beating the no.2 seed in straight sets 7-6(4), 6-4. Fellow Brit Holly Staff didn’t fare so well and was beaten 3-6, 1-6 by En Shuo Liang. Gabriella Taylor fought a tough game against last year’s tournament winner Tereza Smitkova but lost 3-6, 5-7.
