Player Comments:

  • "As in all of our previous encounters, another close match which I just managed to come out on top this time. Think Angus won n the last round. Plenty of deuce games and good rallies. From my end of the court one of the deciding factors would be the number of net cords that went in my favour. Crucially to give me a break point in the last set and fittingly at match point as well. Apologies Angus and look forward to playing again in the next round."  -- Peter

Player Comments:

Player Comments:

  • "Angus and I had an epic battle on the court, with plenty of sunshine to keep things heated up. The momentum shifted back and forth, making for a nail-biting tie that could have easily gone to a third set. I'm glad it didn't as I was feeling drained at the end. Thanks, Angus, and looking forward to playing again soon."  -- Philippe
