Brit of the Week
Katy Dunne travelled over to Perth for the ITF 25K event. In the first round the Brit drew Hiroko Kuwata, the Japanese player was doing well in the first set, but Dunne established the break needed to move ahead. In the second set Kuwata managed to stay closer to the Brit, but right at the end of the set Dunne broke and the match was hers 6-3, 7-5
The second round and the Brit faced another Japanese player, this time the top seed Eri Hozumi. The Brit had to fight hard in the first set to obtain the break and seal the set, but the second set came much easier. Hozumi faded whilst Dunne dominated to claim the win 6-4, 6-1
In the quarter-final Dunne faced the sixth seed Myrtille Georges, this was a very one sided match as the French player could do nothing with the Brit serve. The sixth seed soon found herself outclassed and totally dominated in the match. Dunne lost only two games to move into the semi-final 6-1, 6-1.
The semi-final saw Dunne against fellow Brit Laura Robson. The match was very evenly poised in the first set, with both players locked at five games all. Unfortunately Robson had to retire from this match so Dunne won by default with the score at 5-5.
In the final the Brit was against the Russian second seed Irina Khromacheva. Dunne was outplayed by the Russian who managed to break the Brits serve in both sets to claim the title 6-2, 6-3. Overall this was a good week for Dunne, reaching the final and defeating seeded players along the way
