Player Comments:

  • "What a game! After I managed to win a tight first set 7-5, I managed to stretch out into a 5-1 lead in the second. A combination of me relaxing and Toby deciding it was all out attack, brought about the most amazing comeback and incredible run of play that brought Toby six straight games and the second set 7-5. With what had gone before, it was no surprise that the tiebreak also proved to be an epic. Despite my really solid start and racing to an 8-4 lead, I think both Toby and I suspected that things weren’t yet done. Toby again played some fabulous tennis getting his nose in front having match points at 9-8, 10-9 and 11-10 before saving one himself at 12-11 ! The incredible match ended with me getting over the line at 14-12. "  -- Paul

Player Comments:

  • "What a great match we had Jonathan! Your ability to move on the court is one of the best I have seen so far! You were also very resilient as you managed to come back in the first set from 2-4 to win it! Also in the 2nd set I was up 5-2 but you managed to get it to 5-5, and I was saved only by my first serve which was on point at the right time. Overall very close match as I was expecting. All the best for you remaining matches and enjoy your time with your family during Easter!"  -- Florin
Reveal CommentFlorin Ismailciuc bt Dinko Georgiev (Mar 16) 6-2, 4-6, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "As usual it was a pleasure playing against you Dinko! It was one of the most competitive matches between us. You have had a great come back in the 2nd set after you changed you racket and won the set after you were 2-4 down. Even in the 3rd set we were going head to head until 3-3 but then I managed to re-gain my pace and consistency and won 3 consecutive games which made the difference. In this match you had a fabulous first serve and I have experienced in this match how difficult is to return them if they are coming with that kind of speed. I wish you all the best in your new adventure in Swindon and who knows, maybe we will have the chance to play again in the future!"  -- Florin

Player Comments:

  • "What a match! Another classic close contest against Florin. Anyone who’s played him knows that if his first serves are dropping in… it’s going to be a tough day at the office. But in the first set they weren’t, and I was able to take advantage… but he found his radar in the second and by the third - well it could have gone either way. But I got the luck of the net cord on match point. Already looking forward to the next one. "  -- Toby
