Quick win for Melissa

The opening match of the day witnessed a quickfire win for France’s Melissa Alves. The 30-year-old seventh seed had too many weapons for India’s Akanksha Salunkhe, making her first appearance in the last sixteen of a PSA Bronze event.

Dominant in the opening game, Alves found a few tins in the open stages of the second to give Salunkhe some hope, but quickly regained her form to quickly close out the second and third games for an 11-3, 11-5, 11-2 win in just 19 minutes.

“When you get a 3-0 in the first round, that’s what you hope for at the start of the tournament. Make sure you get on and get out quickly so you can rest for the next match.

“Playing an opponent you’ve never played before can be tricky. I was a bit nervous, if I’m honest, so I’m happy with the win.”
