Player Comments:

  • "Thanks for the game Nigel. We had a balanced start and many deuces in the 1st set where my first serve saved me quite few times. Also the 2nd set was much more balanced than the score shows it. Good luck for your remaining matches and looking forward to playing against you soon!"  -- Florin
Reveal CommentFlorin Ismailciuc bt David Light (Aug 1) 6-4, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Nice to play against you after quite a while David. As before, the match was balanced especially in the 1st set where I managed to break your serve and made 5-4 which ultimately made the difference but even so, in the next game I was 0-40 and managed somehow to win the game and the set. Nice rallies and altogether a very enjoyable game on a perfect weather for tennis. All the best for your remaining matches and looking forward to playing against you soon!"  -- Florin

  • "Sweltering heat for this one; and I think you’ll probably agree Nigel, a match where we quickly fell into playing at a sensible pace given the conditions. Thanks for organising the court - superb even bounce artificial grass at David Lloyd, Ringwood."  -- Peter

Player Comments:

  • "Great to finally play against you Indrajit as we have been in the same group before but for various reasons we have never played. It was a much closer game than the score suggests but I had the luck to somehow win all the points who have reached the deuce stage. All the best for your remaining matches and looking forward to playing against you soon. "  -- Florin

Reveal CommentSimon Vening bt Glen Bessant (Jul 23) 7-6 (7-4), 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Well played Glen. A humdinger of a first set which lasted 74 minutes (some nice stats courtesy of your app!) and had loads of energy sapping rallies. Your level was way up on a few weeks ago with hardly any unforced errors. That consistency coupled with some excellent drop shots and your trusty backhand had me struggling to stay in it. Given that I was 3-1 and then 5-4 down you could quite easily have taken the set, although it’s perhaps appropriate (as you said at the time) that we finished on a tie-break. I think we were both pretty exhausted in the second! Thanks for helping me out with the sports drink btw, I was fading fast :-) All the best for the rest of the round and I look forward to our next match. "  -- Simon

  • "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
