Glen fought back from 1-4 down in the second and saved a match point in the tie-break before keeping his nerve to set up a very tense decider. Thankfully for me I just about edged it, but it could have easily gone either way. Lots of dramatic points and always a pleasure to play Glen - looking forward to our next battle!"  -- Toby
