  • "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
Reveal CommentMagdalena Rucka & Doug Cooke bt Jane Youden & Sarah Brain (Oct 9) 6-4, 6-1

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!
