I had the edge on crucial points which made me come victorious this time round. Looking forward to playing John in the future!"  -- Ezequiel

Reveal CommentJohn Harrison bt Ben Friman (Apr 10) 6-2, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Very enjoyable game played with Ben on a very sunny Sunday afternoon in Bedford on the tarmac of Dynevor Road courts.. Ben started strongly with a combination of strong serves and ground strokes and the first set was decided on a few shots, which had been strongly contested. The second set went in my favour; but again had some long rallies and crucially pivoted my way due to a few well hit shots that drifted just out. Good luck Ben on your matches."  -- John

Player Comments:

  • "Great to meet and play Sophie for the first time. There was a bit of light rain at the start of the game which seemed to suit me as I managed win the the first set. Sophie took a hard fought 2nd set with plenty of deuce games. There were lots of great rally’s with lots of baseline battles in both sets. We decided to play a tie break to finish up which I edged 7-4. However it looks like we should have played first to 10 for it to count. Noted for next time. Tbh it doesn’t matter as it was a really enjoyable game. Thanks for the match Sophie and I look forward to our next game. "  -- Michael

Reveal CommentMichael Dyer bt Peter Hedley (May 27) 7-5, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Great to meet up with Peter for our match, on a perfect evening for tennis. Peter exploded out of the blocks and after playing some great tennis, took a commanding 5-0 lead in the 1st set. Somehow I managed to pull the set back round and came out a 7-5 winner after some really hard fort games. In the 2nd set, at 3-1 up i was just about able to win the 5th game after a ridiculous amount of deuces, in another tough game. I was then able to see out the set but not without some more deuce games. I look forward to our next game. "  -- Michael

Somehow I clawed my way back for a comeback. An even match with nothing in it. Thoroughly enjoyed the match."  -- Martin
Reveal CommentMichael Dyer bt Martin Copland (May 24) 6-1, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Great to meet and play against Martin for the first time. A torrential down pour, 45 mins before the start had put the match in doubt. However, the rain stopped and clouds cleared, for what in the end was a pleasant evening for tennis. The first set was dominated by us both being unsure on our footing on a slippery court. The 2nd set was where the real fun started. Martin went 2 games up, then followed a number of tight deuce games with some good rallys and winning shots hit by us both. At the end I managed to get one final break of serve to end up winning a very enjoyable match. Thanks Martin and I’ll look forward to playing you again in the future"  -- Michael

Player Comments:

  • "What an epic! We started in rainy conditions which became more and more humid as the match went on. Adriano raced to the first set as I struggled to deal with his never give up style. The second set was almost a reverse of that set but was closer than the score suggests. The third set was a true grind with neither of us asserting control but some more consistent play from both as it went mostly with serve throughout. A couple of mistakes and I came out on top but it it could have easily gone the other way. Brilliant match Adriano well played - look forward to the next time!!"  -- Martin
