Player Comments:

  • "A really good contest over 3 sets. First set was even until 4-4, then Adrian pulled away. In the second set I found a rhythm but there were many deuce games and some tidy shots from both players. Adrian has an effective double handed backhand, and like me prefers to hit the ball hard! He also got a few useful serves in, and some devastating lobs. My forehand was warming up though, and I managed 6-2. I suspect we were both tiring in the third set. A few lucky breaks (including my volley close to the net that hit the top and rolled for 10 inches across the net 'headband' before gently falling on Adrian's side....), plus a second wind saw me to 6-1. Thanks Adrian, hope we get a rematch sometime!"  -- Nye

I think Juber played even stronger in the second set including some amazing passing shots, so I had to play quite defensively - but there were slightly more errors his side. A tough one to close out though with several deuces before the end. Thanks for a great game Juber, good luck with the rest of the round! "  -- David

It was clear he is a better technical player and hit the ball a lot cleaner than I can but due to being a bit rusty he made more errors.

Only difference was towards the end of each set I managed to cut out some mistakes to edge it."  -- Andrew

Player Comments:

  • "Great to play Eamonn as always, we have some great rallies and bring out the best tennis in eachother. I genuinely had to dig deep for the win and focus ... Eamonn has a way of making you play one more shot. Looking forward to a rematch :) "  -- Adam
Reveal CommentDoug Cooke bt David Wakeford (Jun 12) 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "There were some tricky conditions to negotiate for this match, with an overhead sun in a mostly cloudless sky and a strong wind that had a noticeable impact on quite a few shots and made for lots of quick adjustments thinking on your feet. We had lots of very closely fought games throughout the match, so the overall score was definitely flattering for me. Nice to meet you David and best of luck in your other games!"  -- Doug

Player Comments:

  • "On what must have been the windiest day of the year we turned up and quickly realised outdoor tennis wasn't viable so moved indoors. It was a really fun match with some great rallies with the second set going right down to the wire. Dougie and Keir hit some amazing winners particularly passing shots down the line and really deserved to take the match into a third set. At 4-4 in the second set we moved from the serenity of indoor back into the outdoor gusts of wind and we only just managed to hang on. Thanks for the game!"  -- Chris
