The decisive match was his head to head against last year's winner Phil, which he won in 2 sets although they "stayed for a third set, which Phil comfortably won". Michael played well to finish in third spot too, including an impressive 3 set victory over Phil which couldn't have been tighter! Great play everyone.

I had to adapt my game to recover and finally win it. Konsta was visibly tired from previous day (he played another league match) so he run out of stamina at some point.

There were lots of bonus points scored this round by people scheduling their matches early, so that's good to see... and quite a few match commentaries too! Our winner is Sophie who won 5 matches and finished 2 points clear of runner up Pravin and third placed Paul, so well played Sophie!

Reveal CommentPaul Traynor bt Sophie Tan (Aug 3) 6-3, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "This was a great match and the score doesn't reflect how close a lot of the points were as these two sets took about 80 minutes to play. At 5-3 in the first set I saved myself from two break points to finally take it after 8 long-fought deuces. Then in the very next game in the second set we fought it out over 5 deuces. Sophie plays with a lot of power and great control. The only thing that let her down was a number of double faults. Thanks for the match Sophie!"  -- Paul

Group Summary:

It was a dominant display by Emanuel Bursuc topping the group with 6 wins and 14 points, a clear 6 points ahead of runner up Nayeem. Emanuel was also the only player to schedule 3 matches by the midway point and claim 2 bonus points, so let's see if more of you manage to do this next time! Their head to head was "characterised by wild shifts in momentum" but Emmanuel won in 3 sets. There were two other 3 set matches in the group, including a great win for Angelo against Nicholas, coming back from losing the first set tiebreak.

Player Comments:

  • "Vik and Nayeem played a tough match win which neither gained any rhythm on their shots due to swirling winds and a bright sun shining on one side of the court. However both, gamely gutted it out playing some tough deuce games. Vik got back into the match with a break of serve to lead in the second set. Nayeem then managed to hit some attacking shots in the return games and that made the difference in the end."  -- Nayeem

Fiona is new to tennis and her aim for this round was to win one game so now she is going to have to reassess her objectives!! Judging by some of her forehand winners, she certainly has the ability and enthusiasm to. No double faults, either! I was very impressed with her level, given she is a beginner. All the very best with your remaining matches, Fiona, and you are doing absolutely the right thing in order to improve i.e. playing more matches."  -- Jamal
