Group Summary:

Different league, same result for Matt as his fantastic form carries over from the Ladywell Fields league remaining unbeaten to claim his third title on the bounce. Runner up Laurence and Rushabh gave it their best shot to try and disrupt Matt's rhythm but although they managed to win a set Matt was too strong in the decider - can anyone stop Matt's march?

Group Summary:

Alex produced a five star performance cruising to the top of the table without the loss of a set. The race for second place was much closer and it all came down to a battle of the titans between Duncan and Jim. This was a match that was decided by the smallest of margins with two seven point tie-breaks proving the difference. Duncan showed no signs of tension to pull out his best tennis when needed and sneak through into second place.

Group Summary:

While Shingi and Leroy played out a dramatic three setter (fantastic tennis both!), the group was rather more straight forward for Mike who dominated in each of his four matches to put himself clear of the field. David and Shingi finished level on four points each and their head to head therefore decides second and third position. Despite Shingi's comeback in the second set, David proved too strong and with it finishes runner up.
