Player Comments:

  • "Started off very cold but at least it wasn't snowing! Then the sun came up and we both found it very difficult to see a lot from the 'sun end'. The match was really close and very tactical, with contrasting styles of play. Adam played some good topspin shots whilst I countered with flatter and slice strokes. Match could have gone either way but I just won through on greater consistency, refusal to go away (!), and perhaps unpredictability of 'courtcraft'! A very close and competitive match. Hope to play again soon!"  -- Lionel
