  • "Exciting match played in the sunshine. After an awful start and easy 1st set for George I managed to regain some composure for the second set and played better tennis. We had to rush towards the end of the third set to try and get this one over the line which could as easily have gone the other way. Thanks for the match George and best of luck with the rest of your games."  -- Francois

After a tight first set that could have gone either way, the score in the second makes it look like an easier victory than it was in reality. With all 3 of my service games going to deuce. Thanks a lot James and good luck in the rest of the league"  -- Sean
