Collapse AllBromley Women's Singles - Round 11 | Thursday 24 September 2020 to Wednesday 4 November 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 21 October 2020)

Such a shame we had to end the round two weeks early due to lockdown but at least quite a few matches had already been played in both groups! A great effort all round and we look forward to getting going again soon!

Group Summary:

There were quite a few matches still left to be played in this group but Rebecca claimed top spot with an impressive 4 wins and a 3 point lead over runner up Laura. Laura won their head to head but Rebecca played 2 extra matches although one of these was left tantalisingly poised late in the second set... such a shame the early finish meant this match couldn't be completed on a different day.

Reveal CommentRebecca Joe bt Val Cox (Oct 28) 7-5, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Always good to meet and play you Val. We had a very topsy turvy match with only a handful of games not reaching deuce. Our first set was reminiscent of our last meeting (which you won deservedly so on a tiebreak), I had to hold my nerve at 6-5 to close out the set. Being such an experienced player, I knew not to take any lead for granted, the comeback queen would have been hot on my heels if I slipped up. Great battle against one of my favourite people in this league ;-)"  -- Rebecca

Player Comments:

  • "What a match! So much fun playing Val again. I think it was a couple of years ago when we last played together. It took me a while to warm up but otherwise it was so close with our scores throughout. In the tie breaks it was typically 4 all, 5 all 6 all, etc! Val is a skilful and lovely tennis player making our match relaxed and fun. I think Val remembered my weakness from the last time we played so gave me a lot of practise at that today... I feel like I've improved at that now! There was a lot of running around for both of us but I think that's why we love singles and signed up for this.... I look forward to next time. Thank you Val."  -- Suzy

Reveal CommentRebecca Joe bt Jude Urwin (Oct 7) 7-5, 7-6 (9-7)

Player Comments:

  • " What a battle! Our first four games must have taken at least 30mins to play out giving us an indication of just how much of a slog our match was going to be. With a few court changes (my fault Jude for not doing my bit), we were on court for nearly 3 hours! Jude’s sharpened her toolbox of first serves and precision slices landing on the lines. The scoreline says it all, this match could have gone either way. Well played Jude and let’s definitely meet for a hit. "  -- Rebecca

Player Comments:

  • "Lovely match which was a lot closer than the scoreline suggests. Laura has a really solid game with some wicked topspin winners and rattles the games off at a cracking pace. I had to keep cool and absorb the pressure! "  -- Jude

Group Summary:

Claire impressed in Group 2 winning 5 matches to take top spot, however she was put through her paces by runner up Silvia who recovered from a slow start to take Claire all the way to a deciding set tiebreak in a "true 2.5hr workout"! Luck was on Claire's side in the tiebreak though helping her secure the title... but a great effort from both players!
