British Tennis - LTA Official Journal - 1/12/2002

The cup goes west

Taken from the article on the Maureen Connolly Trophy.

Melanie South was so edgy in the dressing-room beforehand that the 16-year-old asked team-mate Emily Webley-Smith to calm her down. The nerves continued in the opening set, which South dropped against Californain Riza Zalameda, but she then began to swing freely, enjoying herself for a 4-6, 6-4,6-1 debut victory.

Keith Wooldridge, manager of women's national training for the LTA said that the rubber, completed with a pair of sweet, perfectly timed lobs in the final games, was "a perfect example of why matches like this are so important in the development of our players. It shows us how well they respond to the pressures of playing for their country and not just themselves."
