Team Bath Tennis ace Alicia Barnett ready for Wimbledon

  • +1

Team Bath Tennis player Alicia Barnett and partner Olivia Nicholls have been drawn against Russia’s Veronika Kudermetova and Liudmila Samsonova in their opening women’s doubles match at Wimbledon 2023.

It is a challenging draw for the Brits against the number 9 seeds for the tournament, with Kudermetova having reached the final with Elena Vesnina on her last appearance at the All England Club in 2021.

The match is scheduled to be played when the doubles competitions get under way on Wednesday (5th July).

It is a second successive Wimbledon for Barnett, from Painswick in Gloucestershire, and Nicholls – Britain’s leading women’s doubles partnership – who reached the second round on their debut in 2022.

Barnett, coached by Ian MacDonald at the Team Bath Sports Training Village, will also contest the mixed doubles, an event in which she reached the quarter-finals last year.
