Stage set for Scots final at Craiglockhart

Have your say

An all-Scottish tennis final remains a possibility at Craiglockhart’s AEGON Tennis Europe girls’ Under-18 singles this weekend after Edinburgh’s Anastasia Mikheeva and Glasgow’s Anna Brogan reached the semi-finals with straight-sets victories, writes BILL LOTHIAN.

Mikheeva, 13, gave away three years to fellow-Briton Grace Dixon but came through 6-1, 6-4 to book a place today against another wild card entry, Georgina Axon.

In the top half of the draw Miss Brogan, seeded three, was too strong for Blackhall’s Millie Stretton, last year’s under-14 champion,winning 6-3, 6-1 and has only 
conceded 11 games in 
three matches throughout 
as she looks forward to 
facing another Briton, Jasmine Asghar, who is unseeded.
