BRITS ONE STEP AWAY FROM US OPEN

Mel South and Elena Baltacha have reached the final round of singles qualifying at the US Open in New York.

Having battled through a close three setter in the first round, South once again held her nerve to beat France’s Youlia Fedossova 6-3 4-6 7-6(8-6) on Thursday. The 22 year-old will now face Shuai Zhang of China in the third and final qualifying round.

Baltacha also needed three sets for a second time to book her place in the last round of qualifying. The British No 2 defeated American Carly Gullickson 6-1 6-7(2) 6-2 in just over two hours to set up a third round clash with France’s Julie Coin.
