Erin and doubles partner Sonay are on Court 11 today against Garland and Liang of Taiwan, who are seeded five. Liang is the current Junior Australian Open winner and is ranked 2 in the world.
Update: It was a close battle which saw Garland and Liang win 7-5 7-5. Erin and Sonay put in an impressive performance, with Erin battling injury, so we are incredibly proud of them both and hope they enjoyed the experience, soaking up the atmosphere in the famous SW19 grounds!
