POULSHOT teenager Amelia Bissett's tennis career hit another high mark this week as she made a winning debut at Wimbledon.

The 15 year old, who trains at the International High Performance Centre at the University of Bath, made her bow at the All England club in the girls' doubles on Tuesday with partner Morgan Cross.

The duo met three-times Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic and fellow multiple Grand Slam winner Stan Wawrinka on the practice courts before facing 17 year old Italian Elisabetta Cocciaretto and her partner Nika Radisic, 18, from Slovenia.

The British pair recovered from an early break in both sets and saving a set point at 5-3 down in the second.

They were broken again at 5-5 but hit back immediately to take it to a tie-break, where they again recovered from 5-3 down to take the set and the victory, prevailing 6-3, 7-6(5) to progress into the second round.

Bissett and Cross, coached by Eve Hughes and Ian MacDonald at Team Bath, have won four international U18 titles together during the year.

Bissett also being handed a wildcard to play in the pre-qualifying women's singles at Wimbledon last month, conducting her practice session on Court 17 with former women's champion Maria Sharapova on the adjacent court.

The Wiltshire teenager has also been picked by the Lawn Tennis Association to represent Great Britain in the U16 European Championships in Moscow, one of only two girls and two boys flying out on Sunday.

Bissett will also be one of a trio to represent Great Britain in the U16 Summer Cup in August.

In January of this year she was chosen as one of eight girls between ages of 14 and 21 for a National Age Group programme award by the LTA, a significant boost for her tennis career.
