BNP Paribas Irish Fed Cup Team Update: Bowtell and Moriarty Defeated in Singles
After beginning the Fed Cup in fine fashion yesterday with a 3-0 victory over Malta, the BNP Paribas Irish Fed Cup team has fallen behind Morocco 2-0 this afternoon. Julia Moriarty represented Ireland in the number one singles, but was defeated by Fatima Zahrae El Allami in two sets, 6-3 6-3. Amy Bowtell also suffered a loss, with Nadia Lalami winning the second singles 6-2 6-0. Moriarty will team up with Niamh Coveney in the doubles against Lalami and Lina Bennani this afternoon. This will be Coveney’s first match after arriving in Cairo late last night.
