It was clear blue skies across Ilkley for another stunning day of tennis as the players took to the courts today.
The start of the main men’s draw saw the Brits back on court with wild card Brydan Klein taking on Slovakian Norbert Gombos over three sets. Gombos ultimately triumphed 1-6, 7-6, 6-4.
It was battle of the brothers in the men’s doubles with Britain’s Ken & Neal Skupski battling Sanchai & Sonchat Ratiwatana through three tense sets before missing out to the Thai siblings 7-6, 3-6, 4-10.
It was also the end of qualifying for the women’s draw and another Brit going the full three sets was wild card Alicia Barnett who lost out to Canadian Bianca Vanessa Andreescu 3-6, 7-5, 2-6.
