COMPETE TENNIS starlet Tiffany William has reached the third round of the under-18 ITF junior girls' tournament held in Malta.
The 15-year-old, who trains at the Redbridge Tennis Centre, defeated Nina Stojanovic from Serbia 6-3, 6-1 in the first round and then saw off eighth seed Italian Marta Bertolasi 6-3, 6-4 in round two.
She now faces Karin Kennel from Switzerland, who is the 10th seed.
Meanwhile, fellow Compete member Lewis Thompson suffered a heartbreaking defeat in the AEGON junior international boys' singles event in Roehampton.

Thompson, 14, from South Woodford, (pictured above) had knocked out Max Wenders and Nico Mertens in qualifying, before defeating Ukraine's Khrystyyan Shpila in the first round.
There he faced seventh seed Billy Harris and the game was one set all, before Thompson took a 5-1 lead in the third, but his opponent proved too strong and came back to seal a 7-6 victory.
