Reveal CommentSimon Vening bt Peter Livesey (Jun 24) 6-1, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Thanks Pete, good to catch up and the match was played in great spirit. You got me with some lovely drop shots! Best of luck for the rest of the round. "  -- Simon
  • "Well played today Simon and thanks again for playing at short notice. The benefit of your time spent in the higher division was plain to see as other than an occasional drop shot, you had me beaten all ends up in every aspect of the game. You were too quick for me around the court and anything short resulted in accurate unreachable put away shots which left me rooted to the spot to just stand and admire. All the best in your other matches - watch out folks!" -- Peter
