Player Comments:

  • "What a great rollercoaster of a match. Didn't knew what to expect from Mike, as he didn't play much in this round. But very first game proved I'm facing all round strong opponent that has no weaknesses but great serve and strokes on both sides. There was everything in this match, crazy shots, aces, drops and passing shots, frustration and anger, luck and relief. Fell into tennis because of matches like this. Thank you Mike 🎾"  -- Vladimir

Reveal CommentRory Scott bt Catalin Iordache (May 15) 6-0, 7-6 (7-3)

Player Comments:

  • "Rory played better and he deserved the win. I been 4-1 up on the second set when I start struggling with a big shoulder pain and I lost all the control and power. Pitty but is ok. Next time will be a different game for sure"  -- Catalin
  • "So we continued the match from 2-0 to me on a glorious sunny evening. I was in good form and won the first set 6-0. I then went 4-1 down in the second set, largely due to unforced errors from me. I then steadied up and cut out the errors and clawed my way back to lead 5-4, but then it went 5-5, 6-5 to me and then 6-6. I then won the tiebreak 7-3. Catalin was complaining of pain in his arm from around 4-5 down, which was the first I noticed it. He was also playing with his spare racket, as he had broken his strings the day before. It was a competitive match which is nice. See you next time Catalin. 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
