Our second-ranked women’s singles player, Chanel Simmonds heads home from the United States in the next few days after a mixed bag of results, writes Mark Etheridge.
The final tournament of her latest trip, was the Phoenix leg of the ITF women’s circuit and Simmonds went down in the first round of the $75,000 event.
Currently celebrating her highest WTA Tour ranking of 209, she went out to the tournament’s third seed, as tournament third seed, Mandy Minella won 7-6 6-4.
Sumning up her fortunes, the Kempton Park teenager told Road to London 2012: “I lost first round in South Carolina, but then reached quarters in doubles. In Puerto Rico I lost second round but I won the doubles tournament. Then In Dallas I lost second round in singles and reached quarters of doubles.”
For her victory in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, Simmonds teamed up with Ajla Tomljanovic of Croatia to beat the US duo of Victoria Duval and Alexandra Kiick 6-3 6-1 in the final.
