Reveal CommentOllie Tomlins & Hugh Sultoon bt Oscar Howie & Ali Kyrke-Smith (Jul 9) 6-4, 6-1

PLAYER COMMENTS:

  • "Kyrke-Smith/Howie lured the as yet unbeaten Shopkeepers from their home from home in Brockwell down to their backyard in Vauxhall, unfamiliar territory for the travelling pair. The tube strike threatened to postpone the fixture, but neither the players nor the fans allowed the apparent impossibility of securing a Boris bike to stop them from getting to the court.
    After some dispute over the legitimacy of the court booking, the first set got underway. Momentum swung in both directions but first blood went to the Shopkeepers, who were wearing their recognisable brand of red and white, a tribute to John and Mary Ann.
    The Vauxhall faithful were out in strong numbers and they were treated to the full array of tennis shots in the second set as the quality of the rallies hit dizzying heights. Kyrke-Smith/Howie played their part but the Shopkeepers consolidated their lead to secure their fourth victory on the trot.
    In Wimbledon finals week, the Shopkeepers will wonder what could have been if they'd been granted a wildcard entry.

    Thank you for the game and booking the court (if you say so....)" -- Ollie

PLAYER COMMENTS:

  • "Another sun-kissed eve at fortress Brockwell bore witness to an international clash between the Shopkeepers and the Dunns. After coming through the first set, local Brixtonians were treated to some jaw-dropping doubles tennis from both sides until the Shopkeepers eventually saw off a spirited comeback. Thanks for a great match!
    From Hugh" -- Ollie
Reveal CommentOllie Tomlins & Hugh Sultoon bt Rachael Shaw & Kevin Saunders (Jun 16) 5-7, 6-0, 6-2

PLAYER COMMENTS:

  • "In the evening sun of the Brockwell plains, two well-matched pairs went head to head. After taking the opener, heady fumes of recreational medicines nearby and a waivering serve were too difficult for Saunders/Shaw to overcome and the Shopkeepers capitalised, winning a second match on the bounce coming from a set down. All credit to our tireless conditioning coach who's proving the difference this season. Thanks for the game!" -- Ollie
