Hunt makes terrific start to 2012

18 January 2012

University of Bath student Louise Hunt has made a terrific start to 2012 winning back to back tournaments in Australia.

Hunt, who is a Sports Performance student, won the women’s doubles title at the Melbourne Open disability event partnering Jordanne Whiley. The number three seeds beat Japanese top seeds Yui Kamiji and Yuko Okabe 6-2, 3-6, (10-6) in the final.

That performance came just a week after the pair won the women’s doubles at the Adelaide Open. That time Hunt and Whiley, seeded two, beat top seeds Katharina Kruger of Germany and Kgothatso Montjane of South Africa.

“I’m so excited about winning back-to-back doubles titles in what is my first ever trip to Australia and I’m now just one place away from equalling my career best doubles ranking,” said Hunt, who now joins a host of other British players at the Sydney International Open, the first Super Series tournament of the season, which begins on Friday.

“It’s a great start to 2012 and I’m very excited for Sydney later this week, where I aim to be playing some more great tennis. I’m loving the atmosphere at the Aussie tournaments and it really feels like the past two months of hard training back home has paid off.”
