Hall spoke about how both him and Macpherson controlled the match, despite their opponents having momentum at times.

The Scott is looking forward to a tough match against the number two seeds in Niclas Nohr and Sara Thygesen in the next round.

-We're happy with the game we played today. We were a bit wary beforehand as they've just won the European Juniors so knew that they would be high in confidence.

- But we managed to control the game well, even when they got a bit of momentum at the start of the second.

 - We're now looking forward to the next match against Nohr and Thygesen, we played them in Spain a few weeks ago so will be looking for a better result this time!
