Tennis: Wild card Maia Lumsden lands Junior International title

Glasgow's Maia Lumsden has won the girls' Tennis Europe 14 and under title at the AEGON Junior International in Wrexham, defeating Japan's Natsuho Arakawa in yesterday's final. The 12-year-old wild card took the title in straight sets, 6-4, 6-2.

For Lumsden, who is coached by Toby Smith, elder brother of British Davis Cup captain Leon, this is her second Tennis Europe 14 and under singles title of 2010 which is a remarkable feat for someone who is eligible to compete at this age group until 2012.

In Wrexham, there were five Scottish juniors involved as far as the quarter-final stage, including an all-Scottish boys' quarter-final featuring Stirling's Vincent Gillespie and Largs' Ross-Tiree Wilson, in which the latter was successful winning 6-4, 6-4.

Lumsden's result came only a few weeks after another Scot, Anna Brogan (Newlands), took the corresponding Tennis Europe title in Gothenburg, Sweden.
