Player Comments:

  • "Super close as usual Toby. Your coverage of the court was excellent, definitely up a notch on our previous matches. The first set could easily have gone your way and you rallied well in the second after a slowish start. A third set would have been a big ask! I struggled to get round the shops on the way home :-) Good catching up and best of luck in your upcoming matches."  -- Simon

Reveal CommentSimon Vening bt Patrik Huber (Sep 3) 6-2, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Nice match Patrik. Competitive but always played in great spirit. You found your level in the second set which resulted in some great rallies (and loads of running on my part!). If we’d gone to a third I reckon we’d both have struggled! Best of luck for the round and I look forward to next time!"  -- Simon
