Back to News
All eyes will be on centre court after 1pm today at Calderstones Park as Liverpool’s Chloe Murphy walks on court to take on former World No. 1 and nine time Grand Slam winner – Martina Hingis.
18 year old Murphy has played at the Liverpool tournament for the past 5 years and has been fortunate enough to play against some of the WTA’s finest players including, current number 1, Caroline Wozniacki.
Tournament Director, Anders Borg said: “I started this event to give people like Chloe a stage to show their talent and the opportunity to play against professionals on the circuit. What makes today even better for me is that a Liverpool girl has made to the final of the 10th Liverpool International and she is coached by one of our performance academy coaches! As far as I’m concerned – it doesn’t get better than that!”
18 year old Chloe said ahead of the match: “I’m really looking forward to playing Martina, I didn’t sleep much last night, but I am focused and feeling positive about the game.”
Her coach of 10 years and Head Performance Coach of Northern Vision’s Academies said: “I have been Chloe’s coach for 10 years, what she has done this week is amazing and will be a great send off for her before she goes off to the states on Collegiate Scholarship at Texas Tech. Bouchard is the Number 8 Junior in the world and for Chloe to even beat her is amazing.”
