OLIVIA WINS SIXTH ITF DOUBLES TITLE

While the British Fed Cup team were dominating in Estonia, back on home turf, Sarah Beth Grey and Olivia Nicholls clinched their first ITF title of the year at the Aegon GB Series Edgbaston.

After sailing past the top seeds, Manon Arcangioli (FRA) and Marie Benoit (BEL), in the semi-final 6-1, 6-3, the fourth seeds secured themselves a spot in the final against Melanie Stokke (NOR) and Julia Wachaczyk (GER).

The Brits started strong and took the first set, but a second set comeback from the third seeds pushed the match into a tense third set tie-breaker. However, Sarah and Olivia held their game and came out on top with a 6-3, 5-7, 10-7 victory, earning themselves an impressive sixth ITF career title as a doubles team.
