As he prepares for his senior debut at Wimbledon, Evan Hoyt tells Owen Morgan how his doubles campaign can help fuel his ambition for continuing the climb up the world rankings. Still reeling from defeat in the biggest singles match of his senior career, Welsh tennis number one Evan Hoyt received the perfect phone call to raise his spirits. The 24-year-old had lost in the first round of men’s singles qualifying for Wimbledon - his dream of playing in the main draw at the world’s most prestigious tennis tournament apparently on hold until next year.
Wales 1 Belarus 2 Wales finished sixth after losing their final game of the FIH Series Finals in Valencia. Skipper Leah Wilkinson netted with around 90 seconds left from a penalty corner with her fourth goal of the tournament.
Coming back from serious spinal surgery and attempting to regain your place among the elite of world sport is a difficult enough prospect. Doing so having just become a mum for the second time, and combining training with the demands of looking after two children aged under two, makes it even more daunting. Yet, that is exactly what Helen Jenkins, Wales' most successful triathlete, is attempting to do as she looks to win back her spot in the British team for next year's Olympic Games in Tokyo.
Ffion Tynan led the way as Wales golfers took three of the top four places at the Henry Cooper Junior Masters Girls in Nizels golf club in Kent. The Pontyclun schoolgirl underlined her status as one of Wales' top young golfers as she took a five shot lead into the final round and sensible golf saw her preserve that lead, with a competitive race behind her for second.
Jeremiah Azu, James Tomlinson and Sarah Omoregie have been named in Britain's team for next month's European Under-20 Championships in Sweden. The Welsh trio are among the first wave of selections for the championships in Boras from July 18-21. All three have set new personal bests in their respective disciplines this season to book their ticket to Sweden.
Just hours after defeat at the Wimbledon singles qualifying tournament, Welsh Tennis number one Evan Hoyt was awarded a wildcard into the main draw of the men's doubles tournament. Hoyt's Wimbledon dreams seemed to be in tatters after he suffered a hard fought straight sets singles defeat at the hands of Brazil's Rogerio Dutra Silva at Roehampton on Monday afternoon.
