Player Comments:

  • "Great to meet Vishal for the first time today. I was fortunately able to find my rhythm quite quickly and take control of the first set and then to keep it going into the second. Vishal has some good strokes and a strong first serve when it lands but as he has recently recovered from an injury, I think my increased time on court enabled me to just be a bit more consistent this time around."  -- Andy
Reveal CommentLee Healey bt Tom Guzik (Sep 20) 6-3, 0-6, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Where to start with this match! Firstly it’s always a pleasure to play Tom. He’s a super honest sportsman and it’s always a game played in the best of spirits. I somehow ground out a win tonight but Tom played brilliantly. He was super aggressive from the get-go. The first set was close but I just managed to put together a decent couple of games to nick it. Tom totally dominated the second set, dishing me out a most unwelcome bagel to send it to a decider. Thankfully I got my act together to take the deciding set and the match but it was still close right the way to the end. Well played Tom, see you soon for the next battle 👊"  -- Lee

Reveal CommentIan Wright bt Lee Healey (Sep 19) 2-6, 6-1, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Good to meet Lee but after making the trip to DL Gidea Park Monday night courts were so busy it meant we were unable to finish! Lee came out like a steam train and i was definitely taken aback, i had plenty of break points but Lee's style was frustrating me initially and any lead i had seemed to slip away so it wasn't a surprise when he took it 6-2...i knuckled down second set tho, turning the tables on Lee to go 5-0 up with much more patient play from me and even tho he broke to make it 5-1 i was able to break straight back to take the set, final set was played at Basildon and even after going 3-0 up Lee fought back to 3-3 with some great serving but i managed to stop the rot just in time to take it 6-3. Very enjoyable battle Lee."  -- Ian
Reveal CommentIan Wright bt Robin Oakley (Sep 18) 6-3, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Pleasure to meet Robin this morning and good of him to travel to Baddow, he got off to a bit of a slow start tho as i broke him in the second game but to be fair he was still trying to come to terms with a very different surface as the Baddow astro courts are quick and skiddy, he did break me back to get to 3-4 but i was able to break him again straight away and serve out the set...I felt like Robin was gradually starting to get to grips with the surface tho and several times in the 2nd set he had me at 15-40 on my serve but i was able to find decent serves at the right time to frustrate him and a couple of late breaks got me over the line. Thanks for the game mate and a visit to Colchester beckons for the return on a hard court :)"  -- Ian
Reveal CommentIan Wright bt Tom Guzik (Sep 17) 6-0, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Great to meet and play Tom and finally get my first Chelmsford league match played at last...As both Baddow and Hamptons were too busy we had to settle for one of the hard public courts at Admirals Park which neither of us were particularly keen on but luckily the weather conditions weren't too bad with only a very slight bit of wind...My first time on a hard court in quite a while because of a foot injury but fortunately for me Tom wasn't at his best on this surface either and i was able to dig my way out of any deuce games and the odd break point and then take my opportunities on Tom's service games in the first set, second set Tom deservedly managed to break me once but still struggled to hold himself. Many thanks for the game mate."  -- Ian
Reveal CommentTom Guzik bt Mohammed Shihab (Sep 16) 6-1, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Great to play Shihab again, as we’ve had lots of battles in the past. I knew if I didn’t want to get dragged into another slugfest, then I needed to be aggressive from the start. Was able to keep that intensity throughout and managed to get the win. Good luck for rest of your matches and hopefully again soon!"  -- Tom
Reveal CommentRobin Oakley bt Tom Guzik (Sep 5) 6-3, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Great match against Tom today at the Hamptons. Thankfully the conditions were a lot better than the last time we played so we were both able to go for our shots a bit more and we had some great rallies with Tom defending really well. Enjoyable match and I look forward to the next one "  -- Robin
Reveal CommentTom Guzik bt Vishal Davda (Sep 4) 6-3, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Great to see Vishal back in the league after some time away. I was able to be aggressive today and not allow him any time to get his rhythm, which prevented us having one of those long drawn out battles from the past. I’m sure with more matches under his belt then he will be back to it. Good luck for the rest of the round"  -- Tom

Player Comments:

  • "Nice match against Vishal today. Some great rallies. I think I caught him at the right time with a bit of rust after coming back from injury, sure it’ll be a lot closer next time! Nice to meet you and good luck with the rest of your matches "  -- Robin
