Eva Shaw wins the double of 16U and 18U National Titles

• 2 MINUTE READ

Notts very own Eva Shaw has been crowned champion at both the 16 & Under and 18 & Under Girls at the LTA’s Junior National Championships.

This is a remarkable achievement and we are very proud of her.

Winning the U16 event means that Eva, who is part of the National Tennis Academy at Loughborough University, qualifies for the main draw of Junior Wimbledon at the All England Lawn Tennis Club in July.

The 18U event, which took place on the grass courts of Surbiton Tennis Club, saw 138 junior players from across the country compete for the boys and girls national titles in singles and doubles. Victory in the event meant that Eva received a wild card into qualifying for The Championships, Wimbledon.

Winning the national junior title has traditionally been a stepping stone on the journey to becoming a professional for the country’s leading players, with the roll of honour including such names as Andy Murray, Heather Watson, Kyle Edmund, Dan Evans, Anne Keothavong and Tim Henman.

After claiming her latest national title, Shaw said: “Today’s match was a tough fight but I thought I performed really well. In the first set she came out quite strong which put me under pressure but then I started to play some of my best tennis.
