It was an exciting two and a half weeks for Whitewater’s Reese Brantmeier at the Wimbledon Junior Championships held at the All England Lawn and Tennis Club.
Before Wimbledon, Reese participated in an International Tennis Federation tournament held at the University of Roehampton in England. This event is at the level of the junior U.S., French, and Australian Open. Reese Brantmeier and her doubles partner, Ashlyn Kreuger from Highland Village, Texas, won the ITF doubles championship with a 6-4,6-2 win over Greece’s Michaela Laki and Serbia’s Lol Radivojec.
At Wimbledon, Reese participated in both singles and doubles competitions. Reese reached the round of 16 in singles before losing in a tough three-set match against the #1 junior player in the world. Reese had advanced farther than any U.S. singles player in the tournament.
Reese had another strong showing in doubles. Her doubles partner at Wimbledon was Elvina Kalieva from Staten Island, New York. They advanced to the Wimbledon semifinals before losing to the eventual doubles champion 3-6, 2-6 Kristina Dmitrok of Belarus, and Diana Shnaider of Russia.
Reese would like to thank everyone for their support and encouragement!
