Louise hunts down doubles title in Nottingham

30 October 2012

University of Bath student Louise Hunt claimed her fifth ITF 2 women’s doubles title of the year with victory at the Nottingham indoor Wheelchair Tennis Tournament at the weekend.

The London 2012 Paralympian partnered Germany’s Sabine Ellerbrock as top seeds for the Nottingham tournament.

The pair took the title beating Jordanne Whiley and Lauren Jones 6-0 6-2 in the final.

“I’ve been waiting to play doubles with Sabine for ages and it hasn’t worked out until now, so it’s a privilege to have played with her and we played a great final,” said Sports Performance student Hunt, who graduates in December.

“It’s a brilliant way to end my last tournament before making my debut at the Doubles Masters in a few weeks.”

But Hunt missed out on a place in the women’s singles final, going down 6-1 6-0 to Holland’s number two seed Jiske Griffioen in the semis. The Dutch player, who won the singles and doubles silver medals at London 2012, went on to win the singles title in Nottingham.
