West Lothian icon Lorna Smith is representing Scotland at the World Champion of Champions singles in New Zealand and has made an excellent start to reel off eight wins in a row.

Smith – of Linlithgow– defeated Cook Islands (8-6,11-5) then Botswana (8-6, 12-4) on day one and followed up on day two with wins over Malaysia (6-9, 16-2, 5-1), Ireland (15-1, 12-7) and Hong Kong Chone (14-2, 12-5).

Day three produced a further hat-trick of wins against Guernsey (7-4, 10-5), Spain (13-4,10-3) and Cyprus (8-5, 11-3).

Smith sits joint top of her qualifying section as we went to press late on Thursday.
