Millie Bissett's Junior Wimbledon debut

We are every proud of our student Millie Bissett who made her Junior Wimbledon debut with fellow Bath tennis player Morgan Cross.

The girls enjoyed their own moment of triumph on the world-famous grass courts as they beat Italy’s Elisabetta Cocciaretto and Nika Radisic of Slovenia 6-3 7-6(5) in the first round on Tuesday afternoon.

They showed tremendous skill and fighting spirit throughout on Court 10, recovering from an early break in both sets and saving a set point at 5-3 down in the second. The British duo were broken again at 5-5 but hit back immediately to take it to a tie-break, where they again recovered from 5-3 down to take the set and the victory.

Cross and Bissett, coached by Eve Hughes and Ian MacDonald at the University of Bath Sports Training Village, are part of the International High-Performance Tennis Academy at Team Bath
