Wales’ women can hold their heads high after exiting the competition to the hosts Australia in a close encounter early this morning (UK time).
Charlotte Carey, Anna Hursey and Chloe Thomas fought through Sri Lanka yesterday 3-1 to set up a mouth watering clash against the higher ranked Aussie team. Earlier in the tournament India beat us 3-1 on match day 1.
Anna Hursey and Charlotte Carey combined well to win their doubles against the more experienced Indian pair, but this was all we could get from the current Silver medalists. Sri Lanka was an opportunity we had to take ad indeed we did. Charlotte opened up the proceedings with a fine win and Anna just lost out to their number 1. Anna then had to pick herself up and combine with Chloe to win the doubles with Charlotte completing a double to take victory.
Charlotte played extremly well to beat Jian Fang Lay (WR65) in the opening match but thats all we could get with Chloe losing her singles and doubles (with Anna) before Charlotte losing very close to Miao Miao.
Josh Stacey will start his event soon in the T6-10 singles and Anna, Charlotte and Chloe can all look forward to the individuals starting in a few days.
