Player Comments:

  • "Great match! Played outdoors and were blessed with decent tennis weather, especially for Edinburgh in January. Both sets were very close and could have gone either way. Guido took the early lead in both; I had to amp up the aggression and close to the net to come back. A lot of long intense rallies. Many thanks to Guido, was really fun. --- John "  -- John
  • "What a game! Amazing match against John. I was up 4-1 (1st set) and 3-1 (2nd set), however John managed to come back and win 6-4 6-4. His mental strength and capability of changing his tennis style during the game was outstanding. Definitely enjoyed playing against him. Very good tennis player!!!" -- Guido

Player Comments:

  • "Another fun match with Alex H on an absolutely freezing cold evening. It was -3 outside and felt not much warmer inside CL...After a short warm up we got on with the match. Alex has had a tennis lay off and came out flying. Alex broke me a few times to easily take the first set. I got my act together in the second set but score was most definitely flattering. Heading into the Match tie break with the clock ticking we quite frankly rushed the set and made more UE's than necessary. Again I got the rub of the green and had slightly less UE's and had a decent go at my serve. Score lines don't matter so much, a fun game was had by both parties. All the best with your remaining matches Alex"  -- Alexander
