Aegon GB Pro-Series: Brit defeated in women’s doubles final in Sunderland

Britain’s Lucy Brown and her partner lost in the women’s doubles final at the Aegon GB Pro-Series in Sunderland on Saturday.

She and Amy Bowtell lost to Sweden’s Hilda Melander and Sandra Roma 6-0 6-3.

Melander and Roma dominated the first set with neither of their opponents able to find their service rhythm.

But the second set was a bit closer with Brown managing to cause problems with her serve.

However, the pair from Sweden had too much and took the tie in straight sets.

Brown said: “We played really well in our first two matches but today we didn’t seem to find our game very well and it was a bit of a struggle.

“They played really well together and they were really tough to play against.”

The duo from Sweden, who think their next tournament will be in the US, were pleased with their victory.

Melander said: “We’re very happy, I think we played very well today. I think we played very aggressive and we were the leaders on court. We managed to play the game in the way we wanted.”

Meanwhile, the women’s singles final will be contested between Alison Van Uytvanck, from Belgium, and Anna-Lena Friedsam, from Germany.

Van Uytvanck beat Ana Vrljic 6-4 4-6 6-1 in her semi-final while Friedsam beat Viktorija Golubic 6-3 6-3.

The women’s final will take place on Sunday at 11am.
