Player Comments:

  • "After my match with Darren the Wall, I was so glad that one of my matches got postponed last night, as it was a draining match. As we all know, Darren gets everything back, and with his improved fitness the task of getting the ball past him was made even tougher, which is a scary thought. 5 or 6 games went to deuce in the 1st set, but I was able to win the big points to win the set 6-1 which could have easily gone the other way! The 2nd set was similar, a lot of deuce games. I struggled to deal with Darren’s forehand down the line and he punished any weak 2nd serves, and there were plenty of long rallies, too many! I was relieved to win it in 2 sets as I was exhausted from the long rallies and Darren’s drop shots! Thanks for a great match."  -- Owen

Player Comments:

  • "Thank you Rhodri for a really enjoyable match. I apologize for the numerous mishits at key points. 3 hours of pain on the clay at Cardiff lawn tennis club! Rhodri has a lovely all round game and hit winners from both sides regularly. Very quick around the court and hit solid volleys and numerous amazing drop shots which really suited the clay surface. I had a set point in the first set but failed to take it and he took the tie break with ease. It was only the fact that he was double faulting alot that kept me in the 2nd set along with my many mishit winners. A really good friendly match which I feel very lucky to win as his all round game was better than mine. Thanks again for the match and good luck in remaining games. 👍😀"  -- Mark

Reveal CommentOwen Morris bt Gergo Szudar (Jan 29) 6-0, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A match on a gloomy day that I had to remain absolutely focused throughout as I know how much of a tricky player Gergo is, particularly with his powerful forehand, which I envy! I was made to work hard for my points and having to do a lot of running as he was varying his shots, so no time to relax! There was some heartbreak for me, which there usually is, when I was 40-0 up on my serve in the middle of the second set, only for Gergo to win the next 5 points to take that game. I had a bit of a slip in the 2nd set when I got wrong footed, but nothing serious and I was able to close out the match. Thank you for the game Gergo and for your lovely complements. I look forward to our next encounter. All the best."  -- Owen
