Charlotte Bardsley defeated the fourth seed on her way to reaching the last 16 of the Junior Girls’ Singles at the European Youth Championships.

The Stourbridge player sunk Russia’s Kristina Kazantseva in five games in the last 64, opening up a 3-0 lead and then sealing it in the fifth after losing the fourth on deuce.

Bardsley was not finished there as she followed up by eliminating 27th seed Kornelija Riliskyte of Lithuania in the last 32. Her next opponent in Ostrava is the 12th seed Ema Labosova of Slovakia on Monday afternoon.

Mollie Patterson gave a good account of herself in the last 64 before going out in six games to top seed Tania Plaian of Romania, while Megan Gidney went out in five to 28th seed Marta Vukelic of Croatia.

Ruby Chan made it through to the last 32 of the Cadet Girls’ Singles, thanks to a super 4-3 defeat of Dalma Hasanova of Bulgaria. She recovered from 2-0 and 3-1 down – taking the third with an 11-0 scoreline – and ultimately prevailed 16-14 in the decider.

In the Cadet Boys’ Singles, Naphong Boonyaprapa was knocked out in four by the ninth seed Andrei Tomica of Romania.

England’s remaining two pairs in the doubles were eliminated – Bardsley & Patterson going out to Russian fifth seeds Elizabet Abraamian & Anastasia Kolish in the last 32 of the Junior Girls and Boonyaprapa & Louis Price losing at the same stage of the Cadet Boys to Darius Movileanu & Andrei Tomica, the second seeds from Romania.
