Wanborough tennis star Louise Hunt said she was “proud” of her performance at her first Grand Slam despite bowing out in straight sets at Wimbledon.

Hunt and doubles partner Katharina Kruger were beaten 6-0, 6-3 against Jordanne Whiley and Yui Kamiji and while Hunt admitted nerves played a part in their defeat, she was proud of their second set performance.

“I think in the first set we were really nervous and let the situation get to us a bit,” said Hunt. “But I’m really proud of how we came back in the second and put ourselves back in the match.

“Jordanne and Yui are a fantastic pairing and they had to hit some great shots to beat us in the end so that’s something for us to build on and I’m really pumped up ready for our third place play-off on Sunday.”

Hunt’s Wimbledon experience also included meeting her hero Scott Mills and she sent a tweet to the Radio One DJ afterwards saying: “Thanks for taking the time to come and see me! Made my day! Nice to see you sober! Hope you enjoyed Wimby! 🙂 x”

Hunt and her partner Kruger now face Lucy Shuker and Sabine Ellerbrock in a third place play-off on Sunday.
