Reveal CommentAlison Bowditch bt Benjamin Wong (Jul 25) 6-1, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "The score does not reflect the match. Many games had three or four deuces with many long rallies. Some great angles from Ben which had me running back and forth and a superb point winning cross court backhand volley from him at the end of a long rally when we both ended up at the net. Lucky for me my serve went well when I needed it and my legs were up for being made to run all over the place. Overall I think we had a really good workout and a very intense morning of tennis. Thanks Ben and see you again I hope for a rematch"  -- Alison

Player Comments:

  • "Great match with Ben. I managed to start well to claim the first set but the second set Ben raised his game so it went to a tie break! It was very tight between us and when I was ahead Ben kept coming back so it wasn’t easy, but luckily I held my nerve at match point! Hope we get to play again in the future 😊 Sam "  -- Samantha

Some good rallies and many deuces with Elgan making less errors than me in the end which decided the match!!"  -- Benjamin
