Player Comments:

  • "The match started in cold, damp & windy conditions, in what was far from ideal conditions for tennis. The match was very even, with some fun rallies and good shots from both players. The first set was nip and tuck and could have gone either way. The second set continued in the same vain, with many games going to deuce with both players having chances. The weather conditions improved as did the play from both players, in what was a very competitive match. Fleur, thank you for a great game!"  -- Barrie

Player Comments:

  • "This one had lots and lots of running, and some exciting rallies with some excellent shot selection from both players. The match was much closer than the score suggests, particularly the second set where a lot of deuce games were played. Great opponent to end my matches with on this league cycle, and I think there will be some close matches to come."  -- Antony
