Team Bath Tennis Academy player Richard Gabb’s Junior Wimbledon campaign came to an end with a quarter-final defeat today (Friday).

Gabb, and former Team Bath player Ashley Hewitt, went down 6-4, 6-4 to Russia’s Mikhail Biryukov and Alexander Rumyanstev in this afternoon’s boys’ double clash on court five.

Yesterday the unseeded pair ousted the number two seeds from the draw to reach the quarters.

Gabb, who is 18, has been training at the University of Bath Sports Training Village for the last three years
