Reveal CommentRichard Howells bt Andy Ferrari (Oct 14) 6-3, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Andy got off to a slow start, but surged from 5-0 to 5-3 after he began to outlast me in the rallies. I got over the line in a tight 9th game, but Andy continued his good form to go 2-0 ahead with three break point opportunities to take it to 3-0 when the lights went out..... It took us a little while to get back going and I think I benefitted from the delay, recomposing myself and saving the break points and then moving to 5-2 up, before the final two games went with serve. Thanks for the game, Andy. Hope to play again soon!"  -- Richard
Reveal CommentJaeson Debarros bt Arnis Lasmanis (Oct 13) 4-6, 7-5, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Felt like I was playing the terminator tonight! Every time I thought I'd hit a winner in first set it just kept coming back relentlessly. Arnis is a very solid player and runs like a machine which got in my head in the first set and definitely disturbed any rhythm I tried to get. First set was won 6-4 by Arnis after he got a crucial break at 4-4 and served out the set. Second set was equally as tight but this time I got a couple of lucky breaks and snuck it 7-5. Honestly didn't think I'd take the 3rd but I feel Arnis has a drop in concentration levels and made several unforced errors which I was grateful to accept. Final score was 4-6 7-5 6-1 to me. Great to meet you Arnis! "  -- Jaeson
Reveal CommentJaeson Debarros bt Andy Ferrari (Oct 11) 6-3, 7-6 (7-3)

Player Comments:

  • "Some how managed to survive Andy's booming serves tonight and scrape a 2 set win. I won the first set relatively comfortably but Andy came out fighting in the second, using his height to advantage at the net. The set finished in a tie break in which I took some early breaks and finished 7-3 with a lot of relief as I wasn't too confident of winning a 3rd set decider. Great fun thanks for the match Andy! "  -- Jaeson
Reveal CommentJaeson Debarros bt Ritvik Chotai (Oct 9) 7-5, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "An epic 2 hour battle in brilliant autumn sunshine! First set was like a boxing match, going toe to toe and no breaks of serve until 4-4 when Ritvik took the first break. I managed to break back and close out the set 7-5. Second set I put the breaks on a bit and probably played some horrible defensive tennis, forcing the odd error from Ritvik (apologies!) and after a lot of running and long rallies I took the set 6-3. Thanks Ritvik, pleasure to meet and play you. Look forward to the next one! "  -- Jaeson

Player Comments:

  • "A really competitive match in slightly tricky conditions this afternoon. I got off to a quick start in the first set and won the set 6-3. After a small rain delay Richard came out firing and raced away to a 3-0 lead courtesy of some fast, accurate serving. A lot of deuce games followed and I somehow managed to force a tiebreak which I ran out a 7-3 winner of. Final score 6-3 7-6 (7-3). Look forward to playing another time Richard! "  -- Jaeson
Reveal CommentJaeson Debarros bt Viktor Dinnyesi (Sep 29) 6-3, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Viktor had a slow start and his serve wasn't firing so I took the first set 6-3. Second set he mixed up his game plan coming to the net behind his solid volleys. This made a massive difference and I trailed for most of the set finally pulling ahead at 5-5 to close out the match 7-5. Well played Viktor! "  -- Jaeson

Player Comments:

  • "Really close match! We both tried and failed to serve out the final set without either of us seeing a match point with Ritvik roaring back from 5-2 down. The tie break was neck and neck all the way with both us seeing a match point. Couple of net cords at crucial moments to but at least it was 1-1 on those! Hope to play again soon"  -- Richard

Player Comments:

  • "Unfortunately an injury retirement for Marco today which is not a good way to take points. A real shame as the match was looking interesting. Marco took the first set relatively easily before I started to find some rhythm at the start of the second, going up 2-0 but then Marco suffered his injury and was unable to continue. Fingers crossed for a speedy recovery Marco look forward to playing you another time. Jaeson"  -- Jaeson

Player Comments:

  • "Played across two days, this was a pretty epic match. Graeme did really well to frustrate me in the first set, getting loads of balls back in play when we were playing in pretty slippery conditions. I managed to find my range (and my first serve) a little more but we ran out of time to finish the match. We came back tonight where I managed to seal the match, before playing a friendly set. Graeme was an absolute gent throughout and it was a real pleasure to play him. Thanks for a great match."  -- Rhodri

Player Comments:

  • "Another highly enjoyable match with Rhodri. I played some good attacking tennis in the first set and served well. But there were some deuce games and a few great rallies. Second set closer and I was probably fortunate for a few unforced errors but it could have swung either way. Small margins. Thanks for the game Rhodri and looking forward to playing again next month."  -- Andrew
