MARIA Ustic rallied from an early setback to claim her first Grade 4 tournament victory at Virgin Active’s pre-Wimbledon Week event.

The nine-year-old from Headington was seeded seventh in the 26-strong field for the nine and under category.

In the final she lost the first set seven points to five against Warwickshire’s Sophie Jordan, but hit back to win 8-6, 16-14, saving three match points in the process.

There was more success for Oxfordshire players, with Arthur Manson (10U), Chloe Elliott (16U girls) and Taysie Gujral (18 girls) all winning.

MARCUS Albert and Chris Gregory stayed top on matches won in the Oxfordshire Babolat Summer League to help Witney preserve their lead with a 4-4 draw against nearest challengers Woodstock.
