• 3 MINUTE READ
The opening M25 and W25 competitions of the enhanced 2022 LTA Performance Calendar culminated over the weekend with a number of Brits in action in semi-finals and finals.
Bath University held the first of 15 performance competitions scheduled in Britain for both men and women. These competitions are in addition to the grass court season playing opportunities already in place.
Several British players performed well in Bath, with a review of the biggest wins from last week available to read here.
Daniel Cox edged a close all-British final against Charles Broom to secure a straight sets win. The 31-year-old won 6-4,7-6 (5) to claim his 16th professional title. Cox saw off Felix Gill in the semi-final, with Gill forced to retire, an unfortunate end to an otherwise excellent tournament for Gill. Broom won his semi-final in straight sets against fellow Brit Jon Choinski.
Charles Broom and his doubles partner Alastair Gray did secure the doubles title with a 6-2,6-2 win against the top seeded pairing of Luke Johnson and Guy Den Ouden.
In the ladies draw Eliz Maloney enjoyed her best week on the Pro-Series circuit, reaching her first W25 final. The 21-year-old, who defeated number eight seed Elena Malygina from Estonia on her way through to the final, won her semi-final against Gabriela Andrea Knutson in straight sets, before losing to the number six seed Caijsa Wilda Hennemann from Sweden in the final on Sunday. Hennemann won through to the final after defeating Freya Christie in three sets in a hard fought semi-final.
Hennemann teamed up with Malygina on Saturday to win the Ladies doubles, defeating Britain’s Emily Webley-Smith and Arina Gabriela Vasilescu from Romania in the final.
Players will now enjoy a week off before the start of the next ITF World Tennis Tour events held at Loughborough University between 24-30 January, providing British players with another opportunity to earn international ranking points on home soil.
