On the first day of the Williams BMW Liverpool International Tennis tournament 2019 the Estonian sensation Kaia Kanepi cruised through her first round singles match against British qualifier Rhona Cook 6-0 6-1 under glorious sunshine.
We also saw crowd favourite Robert Kendrick fight back from a 5-1 deficit to eventually overpower the Wirral’s Adam Jones in a closely fought match 7-6 6-3.
Also joining the field this year is Paolo Lorenzi, an Italian former top-10 player who featured in a mixed doubles exhibition match pairing up with compatriot Corinna Dentoni against Robert Kendrick and Kaia Kanepi.
In the final match of the day the Taiwanese Junior World Number 1 Chun-Hsin Tseng cruised through his first match beating Liverpool qualifier 6-2 6-1.
This year you can see the likes of Mansour Bahrami, Kaia Kanepi and Tseng Chun Hsin, Robert Kendrick, Naomi Broady and local players Neal and Ken Skupski battle it out in singles, doubles and legends matches. Alongside the sporting action, a day at the Liverpool Tennis is filled with food, drink and entertainment and the tournament brings a fantastic opportunity for local kids to get involved too.
