Lexus Surbiton Trophy 2023: Four British women into quarter-finals for only second time in history


This year’s Lexus Surbiton Trophy will see four British women competing in the quarter-finals – matching the record set in 2017 by Naomi Broady, Harriet Dart, Katy Dunne and Heather Watson.

Katie Boulter, Katie Swan, Lily Miyazaki and 16-year-old Iasbelle Lacy have all made impressive starts to this year’s tournament and are set to battle it out for a place in the semis and then eventually, the final.

Boulter came through one of the best matches of the day out on Court 1 – overturning a set deficit to defeat fellow Brit Sonay Kartal 3-6, 6-3, 6-4. After the match, Boulter was quick to congratulate her compatriots in a strong showing so far in Surbition.

“It's great to have four British women in the quarter-finals,” said the British No.3. “This is what we should be focusing on. I'm so happy to see all these girls playing super, super well. I really hope we can continue this week-in, week-out."


Miyazaki is set to face Lacy in what will be her third consecutive match against a fellow Brit. In the second round she beat Eden Silva 6-4, 7-5, adding to her victory over Jodie Burrage the previous day.

I'm so happy to see all these girls playing super, super well. I really hope we can continue this week-in, week-out.

"It was a really tough match,” said Miyazaki. “Eden and I have played each other many times. We are about the same age, so we have played since juniors. I'm glad to have got through.

“It is more nerve-wracking playing against a fellow Brit as we know each other so well. Having four British girls through to the quarter-finals is great."

Lacy – who has played with her quarter-final opponent Miyazaki in the LTA County Cup – received a walkover against Sachia Vickery.

Swan was first out on Centre Court against Oceane Dodin – however, with the Brit leading 5-3, Dodin was forced to retire with an injury. Swan will face top seed Tatjana Maria in the next round, who narrowly defeated Dart 6-4, 6-7(5), 6-4.

"It's tough to win that way," Swan commented after the match. "I feel really bad for my opponent that she had to stop because of a knee injury. I thought up until that point that I was playing pretty well. In some ways, it's good that I have more time to recover ahead of tomorrow. I am taking the positives from it. It looked like quite a bad injury. I hope she is not out for too long."

There was also good news for the British women in the doubles as Alicia Barnett and Olivia Nicholls booked their place in the final against fourth seeds Sophie Chang and Yanina Wickmayer.
