Grinham out of contention as David and Duncalf maintain their focus. Ra



The Australian took a fall in the final points of her match against Low Wee Wern yesterday and spent the night trying to recuperate ahead of her fixture with Laura Massaro this afternoon.  Grinham took the decision not to risk pushing her injury however, and Group B will now be comprised of just three players.

First onto court was Madeline Perry against Camille Serme.  The cool
conditions on court seemed to better suit Serme in the opening exchanges
and she confidently attacked with dropshots and picked off Perry’s loose
shots from the tee.  At 3-9 down, Perry began to show signs of improvement,
finding a tighter length and moving her opponent around but the French
international was too far ahead and Serme closed out the game 11-6.

Perry settled in well after the break and shot ahead to a 6-0 lead
utilising a faster pace and much improved width.  With her improved range,
she closed out the second game 11-5 with Serme unable to mount any
consistent challenge.  Serme handed her opponent a further lead early in
the first game, with a number of errors, but  kept her nerve to stay close
to her Irish opponent and took the lead at 7-6 with a renewed attacking
style and saw out the match 11/7.

Nicol David continued her progression through the group stages with a
controlled and precise 2-0 win over Australian Donna Urquhart.  The
Malaysian played a tight and patient game from the start and was quite
happy to wait for her chances to attack, and for errors from her opponent.
Urquhart was limited to only the occasional scoring chance throughout the
match, and under pressure hit a number of balls out of court. David is
through to the next round now after consecutive 2-0 wins, with Madeline
Perry still to play tomorrow.

Due to Grinham’s withdrawal, Jenny Duncalf versus Low Wee Wern played the
final WSA match of the day.  The first game was a close affair, with
Duncalf always slightly ahead of her Malaysian opponent.  After
establishing a small lead early on, she did enough to stay ahead of Wee
Wern throughout the game and closed out a 11/7 win.  The Englishwoman took
an early lead in the second, winning five points in a row and putting
herself in a good position to see out the game.  Wee Wern’s strong
retrieval kept the match from being a whitewash, and she came close to a
comeback in the second game after some good recovery squash forced some
errors from the England No1.  Duncalf weathered the storm though and came
through her second win of the group stage with an 11/7, 11/8 win.
