Next opponent: Amina Orfi

Nour :  “You try not to stay too long on court, it’s a long week and I know Menna’s young but I don’t think we’ve played in a PSA match before but we’ve definitely played before but it was a long time ago. You can never expect what’s going to happen but I’m definitely happy with the way I played.

“The conditions were really tough today so I don’t want to take anything from today so hopefully it’s not going to be the same at the next venue! It was very windy and the ball was stopping short so I tried to focus on my length and try to put it back into the corners and try to attack.

“Everyone has seen how good Amina is and how quickly she’s climbing the rankings and she’s been testing the top players. To be honest, I’ve been waiting for this match since the beginning of the season and I just want to play this match. I think I’m the most ready for it and I’m going to focus, have a good plan and I’ll be ready for it.”
