LTA WEBSITE - 31/10/2006


British No.2 Mel South suffered the narrowest of defeats in the first round of the Shanghai $50,000 ITF event on Tuesday.

The 20-year-old from Surrey put up a brave fight, but eventually lost 6-4, 4-6, 7-6(5) to China’s world No.197 Yanchong Chen.

South battled back from two match points down at 4-5 in the decider and led 5-2 in the tie-break before a disputed line-call at 5-3 turned the match once again.

Chen appeared to serve a double fault which would have left South with three match points, but the umpire overruled the call to give the Chinese No.7 a lifeline.
