Player Comments:

  • "It was a great opportunity for me to return on the pitch after a pause of more then 2 months. Catherine is a lady that is impossible not to admire. Age is just a number and she proves that. She plays a nice tennis and always trying to win the point ! There are some players In this tennis group and in other Leagues that cab learn from that:) well done Catherine and nice to meet you."  -- Catalin
Reveal CommentVishal Patel bt Catherine Clifton (Sep 8) 6-0, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Really close second set with Catherine playing powerful precise corner shots from my defensive slices, a few lucky key points to me saw me through, in all honesty a third set probably would have gone to her on form over the entire game, with her playing an accurate attacking counter style to my defensive style. Catherine really is a lady that is impossible not to admire. She is really friendly and has no arrogance. She plays a good all round game and adapted her game to the style I presented her! There are some players in this tennis group and in other leagues that can learn from that :) well done Catherine and good seeing you again." -- Vishal
