Sophie’s last 16 match against Welsh star and number 3 seed had it all as Sophie edged Anna 13-11 in the final (7th) set. Sophie won the first, fourth and sixth sets to level the match at 3-3, with her spot in the quarter-finals going down to the last set. Sophie found herself 10-8 down but keeping cool and showing her winning mentality won 13-11.
Overall an incredible performance against one of the best players in the world and well done to Conn Higgins, Irish coach, in her corner through it all.
Next up for Sophie will be the winner between superstar Miwa HARIMOTO and Veronika MATIUNINA
Congratulations Sophie from everyone at Ormeau!
