PLAYER COMMENTS:

  • "Beautiful day for Tennis! Having lost to Adrian last time we met I know this would be tricky. His relentless slices and spin shoots are very tricky to cope with. After losing the first set 6-1 I thought the game was lost then I remember how to hit a winner and played to my strengths taking the ball early to attack and not getting involved in the long rallies I kept losing in the first set. The Final set was tough but good quality - we had some long crazy exchanges with drop shots, lobs, volleys, a bit of everything. Very relieved to win in the end against a tough opponent!!" -- Marcos

PLAYER COMMENTS:

  • "A great match played in a nice weather. We both struggled to maintain consistency. I won the first three points then he rallied to win the next five points then I recovered to win the set at 7 5. We had so many ridiculously good and long rallies. I remembered at one point we had 16 deuces but eventually he won that game. I am totally exhausted and gasping for breath in between points. I tried to make every rally a short as possible as I am not keen on having a third set. At 4-4 (second set), I tried to be more aggressive and managed to break his serve and eventually closed the match on my serve. Really great match. We decided to play again after this round." -- Lito

PLAYER COMMENTS:

  • "Nick and I had a great match during a glorious evening. We traded breaks of serve in the first set until I just managed to hold my serve for 7-5. Nick's serve was a bit less reliable in the second set. This gave me some opportunities but we had some fantastic rallies which were not reflected in the scoreline. A most enjoyable match against the politest of opponents! " -- Rorie

PLAYER COMMENTS:

  • "A really good match with David-John, in some scorching sunshine - luckily we had some shade at one end of the court. We agreed it was a game of extremes - a lot of games either went very quickly or took ages stuck at deuce! David-John has a very good and consistent serve. And there was a passing shot on my return of serve that got me several times." -- Laura

Reveal CommentAdam Love bt Laura Ford (Jul 13) 4-6, 7-6 (7-3), 6-3

PLAYER COMMENTS:

  • "Great match - that was very close! Laura almost won, but just wasn't able to convert 3 match points in the second set when she was at 5-4. My consistency was poor to begin with, but as the match wore on we were both hitting with more confidence and power. Laura played some lovely ground strokes, but struggled at the net." -- Adam

PLAYER COMMENTS:

  • "Really enjoyable and close match with Jack. He hit some amazing serves in the second set which I struggled to return. It was very close with a lot of games going to deuce. We both got equally frustrated with our tennis throughout the match!" -- Laura

PLAYER COMMENTS:

  • "Brilliant sunny summer's day for tennis (we were spared sun stroke in a shaded court). In the second set Anna turned it up a notch with her groundstrokes and serves and I turned it up a notch with my unforced errors. Was 2-5 down at one point and had to fight to get back on par before eventually edging through. Great game." -- Benedict

Reveal CommentEdward Hamill bt Benedict Lam (Jul 13) 3-6, 6-2, 6-2

PLAYER COMMENTS:

  • "A bit of an epic match that lasted the full 2 hours with lots of long rallies and games getting to deuce. The local news heard about it too and sent a news helicopter to keep the public aware of the score (or this may be due to there being a new Prime Minister across the river at no. 10, either way it was annoying). Beware of going to the net against Ben, he should change his name to Ben Lob because he's such a master at lobbing his opponent!" -- Edward
Reveal CommentBenedict Lam bt Alex Cook (Jul 10) 4-6, 6-3, 6-1

PLAYER COMMENTS:

  • "A game that lasted over an hour an a half, with lots of rallies, lots of deuces, lots of break points - and even a rain delay at the beginning of the third set. Alex chases down every single ball." -- Benedict
John Barton bt Anna Jonsson (Jul 9) 6-1, 6-4
Reveal CommentEdward Hamill bt Anna Jonsson (Jul 5) 6-2, 6-2

PLAYER COMMENTS:

  • "A very enjoyable match which was much closer than the scoreline suggests. There were lots of long rallies (and pinpoint lobs on Anna's part) which meant it was very competitive and fun. There was even a 5 year old young fan who invaded the court at one point and demanded to play with his tennis idol - Anna. I'm sure he'll take a lot from the tips that she gave him and go on to stardom in his tennis career in the future." -- Edward
