Millie Rogove went the furthest of four young English players in singles action at the Serbia Junior & Cadet Open.

Rogove, ranked third in her Cadet Singles group, won all three matches to top the standings and go into the main draw. Twice, she came from 2-1 down in games to win 3-2, taking the deciders 12-10 and 13-11 respectively. It put her straight into the last 16, where she was beaten by the 13th seed Kavya Sree Baskar from India, who went on to reach the semi-finals.

Anaya Patel got through in second place in her group and was beaten in the last 32, also by an Indian opponent, Anargya Manjunath.

In the Cadet Boys’s Singles, Louis Price won all three group matches to join Jamie Liu, the sixth seed, in the main draw. However, both boys went out in the last 32, Liu to China’s Liu Zhenlong and Price to Khalid Alshareif of Saudi Arabia.

Liu & Price combined to beat Chinese opponents in the last 32 of the Cadet Boys’ Doubles and then went out in the last 16 to a Belgian pair, while Patel & Rogove also went out at the same stage.

In the team events, Liu & Price picked up a good win over a Romanian team in the group stage, but defeat to Belgium meant they went out. Patel & Rogove were also unable to get out of their group.
