Denise Payet dug deep to reach the last 16 at the Spanish Junior & Cadet Open, before being beaten by the second seed.

The 16-year-old, fresh from the World Team Championships, won her group in the Junior Girls’ Singles and was drawn to face Merve Nur Ozturk of Turkey in the last 32. In a remarkable match, Payet led 3-1 but saw her opponent fight back to level. The decider was a lengthy affair, which Payet eventually won to complete a 4-3 (9-11, 11-9, 12-10, 11-6, 7-11, 5-11, 17-15) victory.

However, No 2 seed Zdena Blaskova of Czech Republic was too strong in the last 16 and won 4-0. Megan Gidney and Jasmin Wong both won one group match but were unable to advance to the knockout stage.
