NICHOLLS & BARNETT CLAIM PROGRESS TOUR DOUBLES TITLE

NICHOLLS & BARNETT CLAIM PROGRESS TOUR DOUBLES TITLE

Following the popularity and success of Jamie Murray’s Battle of the Brits, Alicia Barnett and Olivia Nicholls worked with Progress Tour tournament director Barry Fulcher and long term women’s tennis supporter Terry Oakes to bring this event to life.

Barnett and Nicholls progressed as far as their Premier and Division One semi finals respectively. It seemed fitting that they would cap off a tough week with claiming the doubles title. After a nervy start trading breaks with Emily Arbuthnott and Anna Popescu, they nudged ahead before serving out for the first set.

Starting the second set strongly, they were pegged back before a flurry of breaks and holds let to a tie-break. Despite a lot of pressure they pulled clear to clinch the match and title, 6-4, 7-6
