    British Tennis 2018

    A thread for discussing general aspects of British tennis and British players who do not have their own thread (2018 only):

    This is positive news: I have long felt that the UK should have a version of the US college system:

    'How British tennis is planning for life after Andy Murray'

    https://metro.co.uk/2018/06/14/briti...urray-7628683/

    From the article: 'On Tuesday, the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) announced Stirling and Loughborough Universities as the locations for Britain’s first national tennis academies, while outlining an ambitious project designed to revamp the sport in this country. In the first major act under new chief executive Scott Lloyd, the organisation will embark on a 10-year plan designed to boost numbers of British players in the top-100.'

    WC Brit Harriet Dart puts out big serving Kristyna Pliskova 6-3 in 3rd (sister of Karolina who took Serena to Tb in 1st set of French encounter) at Eastbourne . Match switched to centre at last minute but only first 2 sets played there, just when seemed about to stop for night completed on court 1! Still perhaps was more likely to get the win this evening, She also has WC for Wimbledon.

    That's great news about Harriet! She's been climbing the rankings well in the past few weeks.

    Lloyd Glasspool (538) has just won the Iowa City ITF, beating Karlovskiy ranked 245 in the final. A good win. Well done.

    Liam Brody and Jay Clarke are drawn against each other in the US Open qualies - what really bad luck!


    And the same for Katy Boulter and Naomi Brody in the women's qual,
