Four youngsters just missed out on gracing the iconic grass at Wimbledon.
Shenley starlet Kade Neveling, who trains at Batchwood Tennis Club, lost in the HSBC Road to Wimbledon U14 Challenge to Adam Groves.
“I played pretty well, considering I’m coming back from a while away from tennis,” said Neveling, whose 12-year-old brother Sean also suffered a loss in the competition.
“I’ve been coming back from a couple of injuries. I’ve been playing well, it’s just playing consistently well, but it’s all good experience.”
Loreto College pupil Ekua Youri lost 6-3, 6-3 to Rachel Cranley in round two of the girl’s competition while Wheathampstead’s Annabel Davis made it through to the third and final round before going down 6-3, 6-1 to Arabella Moen
