Collapse AllBarnes & Sheen Singles - Round 37 | Thursday 9 May 2019 to Wednesday 3 July 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 5 June 2019)

Nearly three quarters of the matches were played in this spring in to summer round, and the sun even shone some of the time. Thanks for your commitment to the league. It certainly means a lot to us and we hope you really enjoyed the tennis. Here's to the next round!

Group Summary:

Cool as a cucumber, Ian plays three matches, wins them all (without dropping a set) and picks up the group crown. And that's despite two other players equalling his points tally. As Ian got his six points without the need bonus points his tally would trump that of Chris and Nenad, but as he also beat them both his win is beyond dispute. Chris beat Nenad in their head-to-head so the silver is his this time! Well played all!

  1. Ian Hancock 8.1 [W3] 6 WINNER
  2. Chris Moore [W2, L2] 6 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP

Group Summary:

A terrific win by Claire who was unbeaten this time winning all her matches in straight sets. Like the rest of the group (save Bernard) she picked up bonus points but really didn't need them. No commentaries from Claire so let us put words in her mouth - "A great round!". Nicholas, thanks to a set taken off Pablo, grabs second place by a point. A really busy group, well done.
