Player Comments:

  • "Really enjoyable match with Miguel. Having realised in the warm up that it would have been futile to try & compete with Miguel’s very impressive top-spin ground strokes I was fortunate that my approach of slow balls & drop shots did the trick. Miguel also threw in a fair few double faults which helped me win against a far better player. "  -- John

Player Comments:

  • "Fantastic match on a humid Weds evening at the indoor courts of the Bathgate Sports Centre. Both of us live in Edinburgh but Sean spoke highly of the courts at Bathgate and given it's only 25 minutes away, it was rude not to try! Sean edged out a tight first set with I think just one or two breaks of serve. Second set score line may look impressive but don't be fooled. Most games went to deuce which was great after playing so much Fast 4 tennis. In the Tie Breaker Sean blew me out of the water! A great match with a really friendly opponent in Sean. Thanks for the game and the banter"  -- Alex

Player Comments:

  • "Great match with Alastair on a Windy centre court at Craiglockhart. He's recently getting back to tennis but you wouldn't have known. Lots of fun points and occasional aces along with the dreaded Unforced Errors made for an entertaining match! Very tight second set too. Thanks for the match "  -- Alex
