Plenty of solid baseline rallies of 10+ shots in the first set where I managed to place the ball well and keep Juber on the run most of the time, which eventually paid me back. Second set started with 1-0 to me, I thought that the game is done for which Juber ruthlessly punished me with winners and unreturnables, and when I tried to turn the tide he used his dropshots, served ace or passing return. Third set - absolute drama. 1-0, 1-2, 3-2, 3-4, 4-4. Then very tight game on Juber's serve which went my way after a duce and I managed to serve 3 big unreturbanbles on my serve in a raw. Trully epic! Balls got unplayably flat by the end ))) Looking frwrd for another epic, Juber!"  -- Ivan

In the second I changed up my play a bit, and tried to play more at the net and low to his backhand, which seemed to pay off and I took the set 6-1. The final set we were both getting tired and the first three games were very close - then I got a quick break game to love with some mistakes from Alan and then won serve, eventually taking it but exhausted! A good match, hot for the time of year, and he really tested my defensive game and staying power. Thanks Alan! "  -- David

Andy came really strong and aggressive out of the blocks in our first set and blew me away for a bagel. Then I was 5-0 up in the second with a complete turnaound of form, then this morning was a bit of both as we exchanged service breaks three times before I pulled away to 5-1. Andy broke me again and held to come back to 5-3, but I managed to break for the match at 6-3.

Daniel hit some great half volleys/net shots in a close first set, which I managed to edge in the tie-break. In the 2nd set I think we were both reliant on some kind of wizardry to see and hit the ball. Good fun Daniel - thanks. "  -- Simon

Player Comments:

  • "Simon & I are regular sparring partners in this Leagues: but this was different. An epic match, three hours of see-saw tennis over two nights. On an artificial clay surface Simon showed in the first set he meant business, and I was relieved to sneak it 6-4. The second was just as even, 6-6, then Simon cruised the tie break - and our 2 hour court booking was up! Maybe this helped me as I was fresher when we reconvened, on a hard court. It stayed close, at 4-4: with neither player dominant. That I edged it at 6-4 was harsh on Simon. Looking. forward to the rematch already!"  -- Nye

Player Comments:

  • "A good contest on the artificial clay under lights, with a score line somewhat harsh on Daniel: there were many deuce games and I needed 4 match points to close it out. Daniel has a powerful forehand plus a tasty drop shot so I needed my serve to add something for once and found some better rhythm on my groundstrokes. An enjoyable game: thanks Daniel and hope to play again!"  -- Nye

  • "Stu gave me a tough battle in the first set especially, on a surprisingly humid evening. When he served an ace in his first service in the match I wondered if that was an omen for a serious contest, and I was right. Though I took a 3-0 lead, Stu fought back to 5-5 and I felt relieved to scrape home 7-5. We had some long baseline rallies, and Stu had me scrambling after several effective lobs. To my relief things came together for me in the second set. Thanks Stu - a good game and hope to play you again."  -- Nye

  • "Enjoyed this game with Mike... We played on clay which helped make it quite an attack-minded game. I found a good rhythm from the off but he grew into it much more strongly in the second set, by which time his serve was giving me plenty to ponder. Fun match though in beautiful tennis conditions. Good luck with your other games, thanks Mike!"  -- Doug

  • "A very fun match with Jane and Sarah after a loooong delay following me (Brad) running full speed into a wall and injuring my ankle in our first attempt. Thanks for the match, and for playing mixed after--a very fun afternoon!"  -- Bradford

Player Comments:

  • "Always enjoyable to play against Sarah and Jane, with whom we've had many a fun tennis battle of late and today was another good one! It was pleasantly warm conditions for October, although the bright overhead sun made every second service game a little tricky to negotiate. The first set was neck and neck up to 4-4, when we managed to sneak ahead for the opening set. That seemed to give us a nifty momentum boost going into set 2 where the games and rallies were just as tight, but the scoreboard ticked over in our favour. Thanks for the game - we look forward to the next time!"  -- Doug

Player Comments:

  • "Whew--what an amazing match! It was very much on a knife-edge the entire time. The first set took well over an hour and momentum just kept shifting back and forth. Clare and Josh have amazing touch at the net--Clare in particular killing anything that came near her--and Josh/Ivan had a lot of fun lobbing in the howling wind. We had a great time, really enjoyed. Best of luck in the rest of your matches!"  -- Bradford

Player Comments:

  • "Thanks for the match, Elizabeth and Alex - some good fun rallies in this, just a shame we had to to get through things so quickly with only having an hour of fading light to play in. I'm still reeling from comedy moment of the match when I tried to smash back a super high return on the still very high bounce and totally missed it, barely staying on my feet in the process of it all... not my most glorious tennis moment... ;) Enjoy your other games!
