Harriet Dart news: Brit’s Nottingham journey comes to an end
Harriet Dart managed to make it to the quarter finals of the LTA’s Rothesay Open Nottingham, but she was beaten by No 6 seed Alison Riske in three sets.
Dart had a great run in the competition up until now, in the previous round she defeated Camila Giorgi to book her place in her first her quarter final in a WTA event.
Although she showed real fighting spirit after coming from a break down to win the first set, she lost 4-6, 6-2, 6-1.

“Today was an absolute battle, Harriet played some awesome tennis and I think I’m quite fortunate to get through this one, I’m definitely excited to be in a semi-final, to be able to play another match and thank you to everyone who came out,” Riske said after the match.
“I was so preoccupied with what Harriet was going to do to me that the conditions were the least of my concerns, it was challenging at times but my biggest challenge was Harriet herself.
“Harriet is awesome on all surfaces but I think she has a great game for grass, she changes direction really well and it was a battle. I’m fortunate to be victorious today.”
Riske is looking to win her fourth WTA title and she is in with a good chance as she made it to the final and will play Beatriz Haddad Maia from Brazil later today.
“It’s the ultimate goal to win the tournament but I can’t get ahead of myself,” the American explained.
Dart will next be in action at the Birmingham Classic which gets underway tomorrow and she will take on Camilla Osorio from Colombia in the opening round.
This is all in preparation for Wimbledon which so far has been shrouded in controversy due to their decision to not allow players from Russia and Belarus to take part t, but it gets underway from June 27 and runs until July 10.
