A young lady on her travels€¦.Holly Horsfall travelled to Podgorica, Montenegro recently with International Travelling Coach Rob Smith. Making the main draw in the singles, unfortunately she went down in the first round to her Serbian opponent, Milica Cubranovic, 6-2 7-6(5).
However in the doubles it was a different story. Playing with fellow British partner, Lauryn John Baptiste from Middlesex, the pair were ranked no.4. They quickly progressed to the final, only dropping a total of 13 games, and knocking out fellow Brit and the no.1 seeds along the way.
Holly and Lauryn finished the tournament on a high taking out the no.2 seeds from Romania and Serbia convincingly with a 6-4, 6-3 win.
