Although these courts are free, unfortunately we were unable to play the first hour as the guys refused to vacate the court despite us booking with ClubSpark. One of them was particularly unpleasant and threatening, please be aware if booking these courts at Hermit Road (it was Saturday 12pm). "  -- Jonathan

I managed to serve more consistently than my previous matches, and had the initiative in most of the games played, which gave me the advantage today. Good to have you back in the game and hope you'll regain your strength and see you on court next time."  -- Adrian

Player Comments:

  • "Stopped due to rain. Adrian to open the 3rd set"  -- Mathieu
  • "An epic hit with Adrian! Made a hot start thanks to some solid serving and aggressive net play before rain, wind and heavy balls entered the party and Adrian was able to come back in a close second set. Third set a few days later took a 2-0 lead only to suffer a knee issue that made running difficult and Adrian got back in the match before his first serve abandoned him, while my limited movement meant it was a dropshot showcase for a few games. Failed to serve out at 5-2 despite saving four break points. We then had a ridiculous 18-point game, which Adrian eventually held, and a final deuce game that I just squeezed over the line on the fifth set point. Thanks for the battle and best for rest of the round!"  -- Mathieu

Reveal CommentMG Bouchard bt Patrizio Tamborriello (Jan 13) 6-1, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Got lucky to play a rusty Patrizio. A bit one-sided compared to our last hit, but we still had some fun rallies, there were a few deuce games, and a solid practice hit after the match. Serving was the big difference, but I’m sure with more court time he’ll find his game. Thanks for the hit and best of luck for the rest of the round!"  -- Mathieu
