Sonay Kartal ousted the fifth seed in qualifying, Erika Andreeva, 6-3, 6-1 to qualify for the main draw, while Armani Banks and Hannah Klugman fell just short on day four.

Kartal, who this season lifted three ITF titles, will contest in her third main draw appearance on the manicured lawns at SW19 after a convincing run at the Community Sports Centre in Roehampton.

The 22-year-old, ranked world No.295, overcame three players sitting inside the top 200 before securing her highest ranked win against the world No.99 Andreeva to solidify her place in The Championships’ opening round.

“I’m proud of myself,” said Kartal on qualifying for the main draw.

“I had a tough start to the year and I suffered from a lot of health issues, so I didn’t even think I’d be on court this year to be honest with you. 

“I’ve played at Wimbledon for the past two years, so I’m super excited to be back!”

Kartal constructed a comfortable 4-1 lead in the first set, capitalising on her opponents rising number of unforced errors to edge ahead.

Andreeva found her first break point of the match at 4-2 to close the gap, but Kartal soon responded, rebuilding her double-break lead to win the set before losing only 10 points in the second to triumph in one hour and 14 minutes.

However, Banks wasn’t to share the fate of Kartal as her road to Wimbledon came to an end after losing 6-3, 6-0 to Canada’s Marina Stakusic.

Despite retrieving one of the early breaks against her in the opening set, Banks’ loss of serve in the penultimate game gifted the Canadian the set, bolstering Stakusic’s confidence to seize nine consecutive games.

Elsewhere, America’s Alycia Parks won 6-3, 6-3 to stem the flow of 15-year-old Klugman who experienced a scintillating run in just her second appearance at senior level in Wimbledon’s qualifying competition.

Klugman was first on the offence, capturing an immediate break to get herself on the board, but the WTA 125 Veneto Open Champion soon moved through the gears to add to her recent laudable streak on the grass, claiming match No.9 in one hour and 11 minutes.
