Published Add your comment

Great Britain's Tara Moore won only her second ever WTA match after seeing off Donna Vekic at the Aegon Open but she is still sweating on a place at Wimbledon.

The 23-year-old, who reached the final of an ITF event at Eastbourne last week, got the better of the world number 111 in straight sets in Nottingham, winning 6-2 7-5.

It represents a steady improvement for Moore, who last won on the main tour in 2012, and this victory is the first time she has ever qualified for an event and then won a game in it.

A run deep into this tournament will help the world number 280's chances but as things stand her fate rests with the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club.

"I take it from day to day. I'm still in the tournament here so I am just going to look forward to the next match I'm playing," she added.

"As far as the next few weeks go, I'm not sure yet.

"I have put in a request but it's not my decision. It's the All England Club's decision and I respect the decision."

On her victory over Vekic, she added: " It was really good. I played some good tennis out there. Donna is a tough opponent - I played her last week - and I am really happy to get the win."
