Reveal CommentToby Wadey bt Peter Livesey (Mar 19) 6-4, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "The blustery conditions at Poole Park made this a very unpredictable match - with the gusts playing havoc with almost every shot. But it was good fun, and great to see Pete again for the first time in a couple of years. "  -- Toby
  • "Blustery conditions on an otherwise warm and sunny day made for an interesting and strangely enjoyable match as we both struggled to predict the flight of the ball. In the end you mastered the conditions better and I think it was a smart move to opt for a volleying game. Well played Toby and good to see you back on court again." -- Peter

  • "Thanks for the game Nigel. A beautiful sunny morning for tennis. The first set was a lot closer than the score suggests. I just kept edging the games that went to deuce. Hopefully see you in the next round."  -- Glen
Reveal CommentToby Wadey bt Florin Ismailciuc (Mar 15) 6-3, 2-6, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Florin came flying out of the traps with some huge serves in the first set, and there was nothing between us until I managed to miraculously take a break point at 4-3. The serving onslaught continued in the second, where I was never really in it. But thankfully for me everything seemed to click in the decider… although not before Florin saved three match points on my serve. A cracking two-hour epic - and I look forward to us playing again. "  -- Toby

Reveal CommentFlorin Ismailciuc bt Peter Livesey (Mar 12) 6-3, 7-6 (7-2)

Player Comments:

  • "As usual it was another balanced match and you made me work very hard to win this. I still don't know how I managed to push the second set in tie break (probably the prospect of having to play again a 3 set match was scary). Again, many competitive rallies and we had the weather on our side as well. Wish you all the best for your remaining matches and looking forward to playing against you in the next rounds! "  -- Florin
  • "Despite a rainy start to the morning it turned out to be a very pleasant sunny day for tennis with not much of a breeze. After you won the first set fairly comfortably the second set was looking a bit more even. I finally managed to pull ahead ahead and it looked like we might be heading for another marathon three setter. However as in our last match you once again pulled back from set points down and then went on to win the tie breaker with ease 7-2." -- Peter
Reveal CommentGlen Bessant bt Peter Livesey (Mar 10) 6-1, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Thanks for the game Peter. Good to play you again after a couple of years break. Once you warmed up the second set was really close. The crucial game in the second set was when I managed to level at 2-2 after several deuces. If that had gone 3-1 it could've been very different. Good luck in your remaining games."  -- Glen
  • "Well played today Glen and after over two years it was good to have a rematch with you. It definitely wasn’t looking great for me as the first set disappeared in a blur; though I’m not quite sure looking back what I could have done differently. Everything you hit seemed to find it’s mark point after point. In the second set I did manage to get ahead early on but after a couple of close games you pulled back and in the end it was your sheer consistency that made all the difference. All the best in your other games. I’m looking forward to our next match and maybe meeting up for some friendly doubles" -- Peter

Player Comments:

  • "Thanks for arranging the court Nigel, I enjoyed the indoor experience (and it seemed to help my first serve oddly enough!). You hit some well placed winners and we got some good rallies going. Best of luck in your remaining matches and I hope to play you again sometime."  -- Simon
Reveal CommentSimon Vening bt Florin Ismailciuc (Mar 5) 6-4, 3-6, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Very well played Florin, nearly 2.5 hours of extremely competitive tennis. Your strategy of attacking the net worked really well and your forehand consistency has improved immensely. Fortunately for me your level (and that sledgehammer serve!) fell away a little in the third set. Covering over 7km after playing a 3 set match yesterday is still pretty impressive! See you again sometime and congratulations once again on your new arrival."  -- Simon

Player Comments:

  • "A great day for tennis today after all the recent gales. I managed to take early 3-0 lead but then you moved up a gear or three and I never looked forward from that point onwards. Well played Simon you were way too good for me in the end. "  -- Peter

Player Comments:

  • "Thanks for the game Toby. Great to see you back on court after a six month gap. I think it helped me that you played a three set match just yesterday. I was really pleased with my play in the first set. You came storming back in the second set and were much more aggressive. The second set deserved a tie-break. Looking forward to our next encounter. Good luck in your remaining games."  -- Glen
