Collapse AllBattersea Park Women's Singles - Round 12 | Thursday 17 September 2020 to Wednesday 4 November 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 14 October 2020)

A shame we had to end the round early due to lockdown but not before lots of matches were played, especially in Groups 1 and 3! It was great to welcome 11 new players to the league, several of whom went on to win their groups. A great effort all round so we look forward to getting going again soon!

Group Summary:

It was a great start in the Leagues for Yvonne who won 5 matches to finish as group champ, a single point clear of Tessa in runner up spot. Their head to head was "great tennis and a definite workout" and well played to Alicia for defeating the champ in a "so close" match tiebreak.

Final Rankings:

  1. Yvonne Winward [W5, L1] 11 WINNER
  2. Tessa Meredith Hardy [W4, L2] 10 RUNNER UP
  3. Anzhela Fedorova [W3, L1, UF1] 6
