Denise Payet, fresh from winning women’s singles bronze at the PG Mutual National Championships, was knocked out in the group stage of the Italian Junior & Cadet Open.

The 15-year-old Enfield player won her first group match in the Junior Girls’ Singles, but two subsequent defeats meant she was unable to advance to the main draw.

In the doubles, she and partner Annika Lundstrom of Finland were defeated in their first match, at the last 32 stage, by a pair from the host nation.
