Natalie Grandin is South Africa’s sole senior representative at Wimbledon after she advanced to the last 16 of the doubles competition at the weekend.
Grandin, playing with the Czech Republic’s Vladmira Uhlirova, won their second round clash against the Spanish duo of Lourdes Dominguez Lino and Carla Suarez Navarro to set up their next assignment, writes Mark Etheridge.
Seeded 11th for the year’s third Grand Slam, Grandin and Uhlirova won in three sets, 6-2 4-6 6-4. That after having beaten the Russian/Chinese combo of Alexandra Panova and Shuai Zhang, in the first round, also in a three-set affair ÔÇô 6-2 5-7 6-3.
Next up they tackle the sixth seeded Czech combination of Andrea Hlavackova and Luci Hradecka for a place in the quarter-finals.
The only other South African representative still in contention is young Wayne Montgomery in Junior Wimbledon.
