No joy for Joelle in the Caymans

Joelle King has missed out on a spot in the quarterfinals of the Cayman World Open.

The world number five has been upset in five games by three time World Open runner-up, Natalie Grinham from the Netherlands.
 
Joelle twice went a game up, only for Grinham to fight back on both occasions, forcing the match into a fifth game decider.  The 11th seed then continued the momentum she had gained in winning the fourth game to wrap up an 8-11, 11-3, 8-11, 11-8, 11-7 victory.
Grinham will play Egyptian second seed Raneem El Weleily in the quarterfinals.
