Collapse AllBracknell Singles - Round 15 | Thursday 27 June 2019 to Wednesday 21 August 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 24 July 2019)

A big group this time and just a few more matches not played than ideal, but there was some great, friendly tennis nevertheless. Thanks for all the hard work scheduling the matches and thanks too for the excellent commentaries that really brings it all to life. Here's to the next round! If you can help spread the word we would be really grateful!

Group Summary:

A nice return to the league for Andy - a group winner from Round Three! Even though he wasn't able to grab his bonus points, which made it tighter at the top of the table, he won all his six matches in straight sets! A great effort but well done too to Jesus for making it as close as he could and for earning the silver.

  • "An hour and a half of a 6-0 6-1 is not really a 6-0 6-1. Quite intense match with good rallies and lots of close games. I enjoyed the match a lot. See you soon Neale!"  -- Jesus

Match of the Group:

Reveal CommentMarcello Caramma bt Chris Chan (Jul 23) 3-6, 7-6 (7-4), 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "t didn't start that well for me in the first set, and I expected it was going to be a disaster as in my first match. The second set started better, with me attacking and leading 4-2. Then I lost concentration, and Chris came back. Although I managed to focus on the tie-break and win the set. When we resumed today after stopping half way through the 3rd set we both were melting under the heat wave. Chris was playing some really good shots, but fortunately for me I was starting with two games advantage from before the break, so I managed to keep the distance and win the match. Heat aside, an enjoyable match!" - Marcello
Reveal CommentMarcello Caramma bt Hellinda Smith (Jul 21) 6-3, 3-6, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "We were worried about the weather, as it started to rain as soon as we got in the court, but then it stopped. In the first set Hellinda had to 'warm up', so despite her superiority in the rallies I managed to serve particularly well, and also to win enough break points to win the set. In the second set the situation was quite the opposite, and Hellinda got the best out of me. It really could have gone either way. I will enjoy playing some friendly matches after the tournament is over," -- Marcello

Player Comments:

  • "What a enjoyable match with Hellinda! We had to postpone the match for an hour because of the rain, but I really wanted to play that day because I had all the hype from being at Wimbledon the day before. I think I got some tips from the best players and I think I played one of my best matches ever. Hellinda was fighting and playing always with a smile, and we had lots of long rallies, balls to the lines and very good quality tennis. See you in the next league Hellinda!"  -- Jesus
