Georgina Jeynes Cupper, a Year 11 pupil from Malvern St James, Worcestershire, has had a successful summer of tennis winning the RLK Edgbaston Priory Open. Georgina, who plays at the Manor Park Club in Malvern and for the county of Hereford and Worcester, went into the competition unseeded.
However, against the odds she beat the Number 2 seed and made it to the final against the Number 1 seed, 18 year old Nicola Tweedy. In a nail-biting match, she beat Nicola 6 – 3, 0 – 6, 14 – 12 in the tie break to ensure her surprise victory.
Georgina impressed once again at the Pegler Herefordshire and Worcestershire County Closed Championships, hosted at Manor Park. She finished second in the U16 singles, U18 doubles and U18 mixed doubles and third in the U18 and Open women’s singles.
Congratulations Georgina from everyone at ISA Sport!
