Player Comments:

  • "What a crazy long hard game this was! 90% of the games went to deuce with very long rallies (10+) on every point. First set I led 4-2 then played a somewhat loose game and the set was gone in no time; Steven applying max pressure on every short ball. 2nd set Steven started 2-0 and was on fire winning 6 games in a row. I told myself I need to raise my game otherwise it might be home time soon. Barely won the 3rd game after about 5 deuces and the belief was somewhat back. 3rd set, we were both exhausted and Steven started cramping. I led 5-2 with 2 match points but Steve put them away fast and came back to 5-4 despite the cramps. One of the best matches I've ever been part of, thanks and play again soon!"  -- Paul Cristian

Player Comments:

  • "This match seemed to hinge on the first set- I got an early break, but Matt broke back, with some wicked forehand returns, to 3-3 and held serve (3-4) to put the pressure on. I then managed to save a couple of break points on my serve, to hold , break him and take the set. Unlucky for Matt he broke a string and had to change rackets. Think that affected Matts rhythm in the 2nd. Sorry if my celebrations at the end were a bit disrespectful bro. League 1, finally, here I come l!

Player Comments:

  • "As so often happens, the score don't divulge the quality of the match. Three hours, three courts and two venues only hints at the longevity of the match. The match was full of breaks, comebacks , long rallies, deuces, lucky net points and winners. The new set of tennis balls are now only suitable to play fetch with the dog such is the beating they have endured. With tiring legs but inexhaustible spirit the last set seesaw from attritional to sublime. Nice to meet you Burnham."  -- Vivek

Nick served too well in the 2nd set and took it without too much trouble. As cliched as it sounds, the final set was not as comfortable as the score looks - all but one game went to deuce and it took multiple deuces to win many games. I was relieved to avoid Nick making another incredible comeback against me to win the 3rd. Fantastic game Nick and look forward to playing again."  -- Rajiv

Richard made a good start and got the first two games 2-0, I won the sett 3-6 not realising at the time that he won just one more game on that sett which to me shows I was in the right place dialed into the moment.
