“In the girls section, Cape Town’s Jessica Simpson oozed class as she brushed aside Ghana’s Elizabeth Kapari 6-2 6-1.
The third seeded Simpson played aggressively from behind a strong serve and she did well to eliminate unforced errors throughout the match.
Conditions were wind-free on Thursday and Simpson, who has campaigned in Kenya and Spain earlier this year, never looked to be trouble from the start.
Simpson will play the top seed Janet Koch who was forced into an extra set by the fourth seed, Zimbabwe’s Valeria Bhunu, but she came good in the end with a 7-5 5-7 6-4 triumph.”
Both Simpson and Bhunu train at the GROWING SPORTS ACADEMY
