Reveal CommentOliver Millett bt Joseph Gillings (Feb 15) 6-1, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Well organised Joe, tapped me up for a game on his home patch at the Uni. Hurricane Dennis made things a little tricky as I arrived wet through and cold. The open games were nervy but soon open up to unleash a barrage of powerful baseline rallies. I luckily broke Joe early and warmed up to chasing down everything he drove hard moving me around. Winning the first set to one was not the way in the second as Joe opened his shoulders to unleash superb power with a touch of an angel, to execute delicate drop shots. Games went with serve until an unfortunate double fault from Joe allowed me to close out the match to 3. Huge array of power made this an open entertaining match and a dual I will be apprehensive about on our next collision. "  -- Oliver

Player Comments:

  • "Thanks Joe for an enjoyable match today. I got into my stride pretty quickly, serving well and backing that up with some solid volleys and ground strokes. Towards the end of the first set it became a lot more even as Joe started to play some really clever and well executed shots. The second set was really tight and could have gone either way but I managed to break at 6-5 to gladly avoid the breaker! "  -- David
Reveal CommentNick Miles bt Joseph Gillings (Feb 3) 6-4, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Nick got off to a fast start in the first set racing to a 5-1 lead before the first of several momentum swings as Joe’s forehand and serve began to click and he reeled off three straight games giving Nick a scare before he finally clinched the set. Joe’s strong form continued at the start of the second set and Nick’s serve began to malfunction badly with a couple of games with multiple double faults but he clawed it back to 3-3. It was nip and tuck from there and either player could have taken the set but in the end Nick prevailed 6-4."  -- Nick
