Emma Montebello is in the final of both the singles and doubles in the Tennis Europe Under 16 Tournament in Cyprus. Playing at the Field Tennis Club in Nicosia on clay, Emma had a very difficult match in the first round and was losing 1-4 in the 3rd set to a very tough opponent. She managed to turn the tables and won 6-4, 3-6, 6-4.

In the 2nd round Emma defeated the #1 seed and doubles partner Nina Andronicou with a very convincing score and found good form in the subsequent matches to beat strong opponents from Czech Republic in the quarter and Naema Labib from Romania in the semis. Emma will now face Alexandra Bayuschenko from Belarus in the singles final on Saturday.

Tomorrow, on Friday, Emma and Nina will play the doubles final against the duo from Romania Julia Maria Bucelei and Naema Labib.

Good Luck Emma!
