Collapse AllBromley Tennis For Free Women's Singles - Round 10 | Thursday 23 January 2020 to Wednesday 18 March 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 19 February 2020)

A lovely round in Bromley with great tennis and fantastic commitment. Only 4 matches were unplayed which means 895 of all possible matches were! Hope to expand this league in future rounds and make it the great local fixture it deserves to be.

Group Summary:

Many thanks to everyone for the huge effort put into this round and also for entering into it in such good spirits. Some of the match ups were a bit uneven but there were so many generous comments it cheered us up in these troubled times. For example, Vicky said, 'Despite the score, it was lovely to meet Tracey and we did have a laugh,' We like the sound of the 'effortless backhand from Jude', Tracey's Federer-esque back hand winners and nice angled returns from Claire but in the end there was no one to touch Vicky, who takes gold, and runner up Lucy who lost only to the champ. Well played.

  • "It was nice to have a lovely sunny morning to finally get this match played after all the rainy days we have had this season. Sigita was a lovely opponent, still smiles in defeat.

Player Comments:

  • "Lovely to see you again Jude. I know your serve was ‘off’ today which was a shame and reflected in our first set score. BUT...I knew a comeback was almost certainly around the corner for our second set. You hit your stride. A great competitive match as always with some fantastic rallies (from most of which, you were the victor). The weather was absolutely glorious today and I thoroughly enjoyed our match and your company. See you soon :-) "  -- Rebecca

Player Comments:

Match of the Group:

Reveal CommentJude Urwin bt Pam Naylor (Mar 9) 6-4, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "What a battle against a challenging and sporting opponent! So many rallies and deuces. I was having a mare again with serve so I was under a lot of pressure. Fortunately the rest of my game was in tune today and the decent weather at last meant I was able to retrieve enough of Pam's tricky slice shots. Both sets hinged on a few key points though and I think the luck fell my way. "  -- Jude

Reveal CommentTracey Elliott bt Jude Urwin (Feb 19) 6-1, 5-7, [10-8]

Player Comments:

  • "It was a blustery and then wet match, and neither of us really got into our stride, so there were rather too many double faults and unforced errors! But it was enjoyable nonetheless, and I hope we can play again when we’re both on better form. Worth noting a seemingly effortless backhand volley from Jude - now part of her repertoire?!"  -- Tracey
