Player Comments:

  • "Really enjoyable match which was to decide who would top the group. I was 1-5 down in the first set and didn’t much fancy my chances at that point… but I had a few lucky shots that clipped the net and somehow dropped in, and suddenly found myself right back in it. The second set was very tight and could have gone either way - but the real highlight was George managing to salvage a ball that had become lodged high up in a tree branch. Great to meet you - and hopefully we’ll play again soon. "  -- Toby

Player Comments:

  • "Nice to catch up and play with Toby. Very good serves and placements by him. 1st set was dominated by tiby. In second I took quick lead. 3rd set was a good fight back from both of us and could go either way. Day was bit humid and we both were tired with long rallies and drops at net. Definitely need to start carrying some spare water bottles😀. All the best Toby for next games and would love to play again sometime soon.. "  -- Amit
Reveal CommentToby Wadey bt Florin Ismailciuc (May 20) 6-4, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Another great match at Bournemouth Gardens which really could have gone either way. Florin began the game with his trademark thunderous serves but ultimately I think it was a case of death by drop shot for him in that first set… and that combined with a bit of luck just about helped me get over the line. It was another tight set in the second with plenty of high energy points. Great match - and I look forward to our next one. "  -- Toby

  • "A really enjoyable match down at Branksome Park. Ended on a pretty dramatic point with lobs and volleys flying all over the place that typified a fun game with lots of good rallies. Good to meet you Marcus - and hope we get to play again in the future. "  -- Toby

Player Comments:

  • "Great to play with Florin today. One of the fastest serves I faced after long time. Not easy to return if first serve falls in, I tried on few occasions and ball flew away outside court. First set went fast. Opening game in second set was highlight with 10+ duece with lot of long rallies in following games. Enjoyed the match and will play again with him. All the best Florin for next games.. "  -- Amit
Reveal CommentGlen Bessant bt Florin Ismailciuc (Apr 23) 6-4, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Thanks for the game Florin. Thanks for coming down to Swanmore. This was our second game in as many weeks. The first set hinged on a game number 10. An eleven minute game with me serving at 5-4 for the set. I went down 0-40 and was thinking hopefully I'll get another chance. I managed to take it to deuce and then four more deuces later I closed it out. (Try not to lose sleep over this Florin). I think this then continued to play on Florins mind through the second set. Good luck in you remaining games."  -- Glen

Player Comments:

  • "I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve played Glen over the years - but this match was right up there with our best. There were so many enjoyable points - in fact 175 to be exact. The wonders of Glen’s Apple Watch mean - as well as knowing how many calories he burnt - that when it came to individual points, I won 90-85 … and I don’t think it gets too much closer than that! Great match and I’m already looking forward to our next one. "  -- Toby

Player Comments:

  • "A real classic Local Tennis League match with plenty of swings in momentum and dramatic moments. Alex’s style of surging to the net had me easily beaten in the first set, but thankfully I was able to hit a few more of my lobs in as the match went on… and after two hours of hacking away I think we were both exhausted. Great game - and I look forward to playing again. "  -- Toby

I went 4-0 up in the third but then Amit won 5 in a row to make me serve to save the match. I held my nerve and then managed to win the last two games. Good luck in your remaining matches."  -- Glen

Player Comments:

  • "Good to meet you Indra and thanks for an enjoyable game I think in the first set you were getting used to being back on court after a holiday break because in the second things were quite different and I was struggling to get to those drop shots with added severe side spin. It was all very tight at 4-4 but I got a couple of lucky breaks on your serve and managed to win the set 6-4. All the best in your other matches "  -- Peter

I couldn’t get near some of those devastating top spin backhands of yours either. Well played Josh and all the best in your other games."  -- Peter

Player Comments:

  • "Thanks for an enjoyable match Tom. Apologies for the parking difficulties today. I didn’t know the Poole Park run was taking place this morning. You have a great style and your backhand slice with side in particular had me flummoxed in the first set That combined with your agility and speed around court made for quite a short set. In sets two and three I think my winning them was more down to the fact that you are just back from a long lay off than for any other reason. Looking forward to playing you again. "  -- Peter

Player Comments:

  • ". Perfect conditions for tennis this Easter Sunday evening. It was certainly a match of three very contrasting sets. I couldn’t get anywhere near you in the first and I think had it not been your first match in a while the final score line would have been very different. Good to meet you Marcus and I look forward to playing you again. "  -- Peter
