LTA WEBSITE - 2/06/2013


Melanie South joins her compatriots in the main draw after coming back from a set down to overcome fellow Brit Emily Webley-Smith 2-6, 6-1, 6-4 in the third round of qualifying. She faces Irina Falconi, ranked 337 places higher than her, in the first round.
Having struggled to find any sort of form after recovering from wrist surgery late last year, the 27 year-old former world No.99 battled her way past three Brits in qualifying occupying the court for nearly five hours on Saturday to edge past training partner Lisa Whybourn and Lucy Brown in the opening rounds.
South said: It feels pretty good, it has been a while since Ive won three matches in a row they were all tough against girls that I know well.
I can make the matches easier for myself, but at the same time Im getting through them and winning them because Ive lost so many three set matches this year.
I came out pretty sore today and was trying to get the momentum going. Emily came out on fire and I was slow and sluggish.
That first set went pretty quick for me so at the break I really through about how to chance it and I came back with a lot more energy and Ill definitely be looking to do that from the beginning of the next match.
I have more time to recover now, Ill get a massage, see the physio and Ill be fine for the main draw.
