Support through Sport UK caught some of the action from day two of the 2018 British Open Wheelchair Tennis Championships...
In a day full of first and second round, and quarter final, matches, the first match that we saw was a first round match between GB players Lucy Shuker and Lauren Jones.
Shuker, the British number one who comes fresh from the Wimbledon women's doubles final, gave a strong performance, winning 6-2 6-1. However the scoreline belied the competitiveness of parts of the match; particularly the period after the rain break in the first set when Jones fought back well.
Shuker will now be hoping to progress past the quarters for the first time. However she'll have to overcome world number 4 Sabine Ellerbrook to get there. Shuker knows Ellerbrock's game well though, as Ellerbrook was her Wimbledon women's doubles partner.
“She’s going to be a tough player," said Shuker in her post-match interview. "She’ll slice it...she’s like a tactician on the court...she’ll make it difficult for me but hopefully if I can play my game well…we’ve had some really close matches, so hopefully I might be able to get the win this time.”
Next up on Centre Court was world number 2: Britain's Alfie Hewett. Hewett beat GBR's Dermot Bailey 6-2, 7-5 in a thrilling second round match that featured numerous close games and deuces. Hewett will now go on to face Sweden's Stefan Olsson, the recent Wimbledon singles champion.
“He beat me last week at Wimbledon, so I’ve got a bit of a grudge against him right now and something to prove," said Hewett. "But I won’t take that into it, I’ll just take it as another match. He’s a great player and he’ll be a tough player to beat.”
Day two also saw British wins for Gordon Reid and Andy Lapthorne.
Outside of the Grand Slams, the British Open is one of the key dates on the wheelchair tennis tour calendar. Organised by the Tennis Foundation, the UNIQLO Super Series event features the best players in the world.
