Player Comments:

  • "It was a little wet and drizzly but we started the match. After 2 games I led 2-0, but Catalin wanted to stop the match, as he didn’t want to play the match if he couldn’t run as easily due to the wet courts. He decided to pause the match at 0-2, but to play on for fun/practice. We restarted a friendly match and I won 6-3, 6-1, 6-2. We hope to continue the match on Thursday. "  -- Rory

Some good rallies and good shots from Patrick. A few games went to deuce and no games were win to love. Thanks for the match Patrick & good luck in your remaining matches. "  -- Rory

Reveal CommentRory Scott bt Graeme Howell (Apr 24) 6-4, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "I started off playing with my second spare racket, as my normal racket broke yesterday. I didn’t like it so changed back to my first spare racket at 1-2 down. Then I fell over on a wet part of the court which almost never happens to me. I fell ‘well’ & didn’t hurt myself. We carried on and it was 3-3 and I slipped again but didn’t fall. We decided to move to a different court. Then Graeme broke a string, so I lent him my 1st spare racket and I played with my 2nd spare. I won 6-4, 6-4 in a close match. Last year I beat him 6-0, 6-1. Graeme has improved a lot since then and I was dreadful by my normal level with my good racket, but it made for a challenging match! Good luck Graeme & thanks. "  -- Rory

Reveal CommentRory Scott bt Vladimir Sluchov (Apr 23) 4-6, 6-4, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "A very long and close match. I went 2-0 up in 1st set but went 3-2 down, at which point my racket frame snapped on a first serve. It had already got a small crack in it which had been getting gradually worse. I had to swap to an old lesser quality racket for the remainder of the match, which I found difficult as I had less power and confidence. Anyway Vladimir played very well to win the first set 6-4 & he went 3-0 up in the 2nd set. His first serve was unstoppable and he covered the net amazingly well. I clawed my way back to go 5-3 up as his first serve % dropped dramatically & I won 6-4. In the last set, he went 2-1 up, then I was 5-3 up and I won 6-4 in the end, so all the sets were very close. The match lasted 2 hours 45 minutes"  -- Rory
