Moore makes most of Nottingham wildcard

Wildcard Tara Moore progressed to the second round of the LTA’s Viking Open Nottingham with a three-set victory over fellow Brit Eden Silva at the Nottingham Tennis Centre on Sunday.

Thank you to the LTA for giving me a last-minute wildcard. It means a lot. This is my home-town basically. I'm from Doncaster which isn't too far away. I love the North and I love playing in Nottingham Tara Moore

World No.476 Moore won the day’s standout match 6-2 3-6 7-6(3), picking up where she left off after yesterday’s qualifiers with her second win in as many days.

She got off to the perfect start with a break in the third game, setting her up to take the first set. Silva then fought back, racing to a 3-0 lead in the second before tying up the scores at one apiece.

She then pushed Moore to a tie break in the decider but couldn’t hold off the 28-year-old who edged a narrow victory in front of the Centre Court crowd.

She said: “It’s the first time I’ve played in front of a crowd for a very long time. This is one of my favourite tournaments and I love playing in front of this crowd. Thank you to the LTA for giving me a last-minute wildcard. It means a lot. This is my home-town basically. I’m from Doncaster which isn’t too far away. I love the North and I love playing in Nottingham.”

Moore now faces the winner of tomorrow’s match between Katie Boulter and Colombia’s Maria Camila Osorio Serrano in round two.

In the first match of the day, Britain’s Jodie Burrage took on former quarter-finalist Kristie Ahn. Burrage flew out of the blocks, sealing the opening game with a booming ace and going on to win the next five in a row before clinching the first set 6-1.

Ahn found her feet in the second set and started to show her quality. A late break in a decisive game at 4-3 gave her the boost she needed to take the second set 6-3.

Despite a strong performance from Burrage, who is supported by the LTA’s Pro Scholarship Programme, the World No.123 of the US completed her comeback after a couple of early breaks in the third rounded off a 1-6, 6-3, 6-2 win.

A disappointed Burrage said: “It was so great to be back in front of the crowd. They were really good today and really enjoyed it. As frustrated as I am to not win the match, the crowd were great and I’m really grateful we get this chance to play in front of them again.”

In the day’s final match on Centre, Sarah Beth Grey lost 6-2 6-1 to Switzerland’s Leonie Kung.
