I claimed a straight sets win over Dublin debutant Rob Cross.
For the last three days I’ve bombed out early so I wasn’t feeling too confident but you’d give all that up to get through in this so I’m over the moon.
The first set was a bit jittery and it’s a tough format, and if Rob had started better it could have been a different story. Rob will learn from where he’s gone wrong tonight but I’ll keep fighting.
I’ve played well this year so I knew it was there. Rob’s not played in this event before so I knew if I started well I could get on top of him.
I’m looking forward to playing Raymond in the second round on Tuesday evening !!!!
