Shuker loving home crowd's central role
Lucy Shuker wants to continue feeding off the passionate home support on Eton Manor's centre court as she closes in on wheelchair tennis singles glory.
Shuker is into the quarter-finals, one win away from a shot at a first Paralympics medal, after conquering America's Emmy Kaiser.
The British number one, who trains in Taunton, dropped just two games and sealed a 6-0, 6-2 straight-sets victory to set up a last-eight clash with third seed Jiske Griffioen, of the Netherlands.
Despite being ranked lower than Griffioen, who saw off South Africa's Kgothatso Montjane 6-2, 6-2 in her last-16 tie, Shuker will be confident of further progress based on her centre court experience so far.

"Emmy [Kaiser] has the ability to hit lines, so I know she's a tough opponent. When's she's on her game, she is pretty hard," said the 32-year-old.
"I think the crowd maybe got to her a bit and they gave me a lot more. I just didn't seem to miss much, which was great.
"For me, I'm really loving being out on centre court. It's the second match I've played and I felt more at home than in my first game, and I'm looking forward to coming back. Hopefully the crowd will be helping me and not the others."
