After some entertaining matches earlier in the other half of the draw, it was my match up with Alison and the match kept the spectators on the edge of their seats again. It was a close one.
Alison playing consistently until 7 points while I was finding my footing on the court. Somehow I really didn’t want to let it go and I worked my heart out to equal the scores and eventually winning that game only just.
My legs were moving better in the second game and I felt that I was working her more this time. I got a good lead and took that game to make it 2-0.
In the third, I had a feeling that Alison will be coming back strong. She got ahead again but the rallies were long at the tail end of that game. I saw a glimpse of hope after winning one of our longest rallies of the evening at 10-7 down to take the match.
Watch out for more news tomorrow when I face Natalie Grinham in the semi finals.
