Player Comments:

  • "There were certainly a few swings of momentum in this one, with some good serving and powerful shots interspersed with a few runs of unforced errors on both sides. I found it hard to control Ollie’s serve for quite a while and he generally easily finished off any mid-court fluffs that I sent his way. Me having hung on for dear life at times in the second set here was finally a bit of a period when Ollie was off his timing slightly and that let me get a few games ahead in the third. It was still tricky to finish it off and I needed about 5 set points to do it. Great match played in good humour. Very nice to meet you Ollie."  -- Ian

Player Comments:

  • "Court was a bit wet, slowed the ball and the whole game down. Still had a nice time, some good points and rallies. My serve was just a little but more reliable. Thanks for the match James. Good luck for your next matches."  -- Antoine
Reveal CommentIan Edwards bt Sergio Aguiar (Jan 26) 6-4, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Great game with Sergio. Definitely our best match to date with some pretty professional looking rallies and some very controlled play. The highlight was a cross-court volley that Sergio put away after the biggest hitting rally of the match- a shot so good that even I was pleased to see it, despite being on the receiving end! Thanks for the excellent game and good luck with the rest!"  -- Ian

Player Comments:

  • "Enjoyable game with David as usual. A long Christmas break made for some slightly more ragged hitting than usual for both of us, but there plenty of deuce games and it felt like a good run out for the time of year. Thanks for the game and good luck with the rest David, cheers"  -- Ian
Reveal CommentIan Edwards bt Craig Kelly (Jan 12) 6-1, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Conditions were a little slick, but we avoided the rain which in itself felt like a victory! Good match with some well contested games, although with a long injury break slowing Craig down a bit I was able to take the win with some reasonably solid hitting. Thanks for the match Craig and good luck out there! "  -- Ian
