A Merton schoolgirl has enjoyed an astonishing month of tennis by winning three consecutive titles.

Not only did Jasmine Asghar defend her Tunbridge Wells British Tour Championship crown at the beginning of August, she also won in West Worthing on the same tour two weeks ago.

Not satisfied, the 16-year-old went on to win the U18 Nike Junior Championships in Nottingham on August 21, despite being among the youngest of the competitors.

Asghar proved too strong in the final beating Eden Richardson 6-1 6-2, and now she wants more success and has left Coombe Girls’ School in New Malden to fit in her six hours a day, four days a week, training.

She said: “I left school to have more time to train, and after winning these championships it has given me the confidence to really progress.

“I want to build on this and progress further. I’m flying to Cyprus next week to compete in more championships, so hopefully I can really kick on with my career now. “

Her proud mother Lynne said: “After coming so close in the past, I am so proud of her for her achievements over the past few weeks.

“Having to train up to four times a week can be gruelling, but it’s all worth it to see her succeed like this.”

Hopes are high for the teenager, who is now ranked 30 in the British junior ladies standings on the back of her recent successes.
