Player Comments:

  • "Great game, tightly contested. Some really nice points in there with cross-court exchanges building up, both looking for that opportunity to hit the winner. Really losing light at the end of the match, was well past sunset when we finished but great to get the game fully played."  -- Richard

  • "Great game, we started playing outdoors, the game was interrupted when it started raining and we continued playing indoors. Eventually got kicked out by another booking and we finished the game outdoors where, luckily, it wasn't raining anymore. A couple of long games with a lot of deuces, good match overall."  -- Mihail

Reveal CommentMG Bouchard bt Amelia Farebrother (Oct 4) 6-0, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Sadly this was the kind of unfair mismatch the bottom group often throws up when tennis newbies are up against wily veterans. While it was a very comfortable win, aside from one game late in the second set where Amelia had two break points in a game that lasted 16 points, there was still plenty of fun, running around, and chatting enjoyed on a gloriously-autumnal Monday morning, and Amelia hit fewer double faults! Small victories! :-) I'm sure with more time on court crafting technique and gaining match experience, and not playing just after recovering from an illness, Amelia will become a difficult opponent. Thanks for the hit! Best of luck for the rest of your matches!"  -- MG

Reveal CommentMG Bouchard bt Michaela Dankova (Sep 14) 6-0, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Fantastic hit over two days at St John's. Too many service issues in the first set did most damage, but Michaela still hit some great winners and even pulled off a successful serve and volley, which she described as the highlight of her day! Second set was much tougher with several deuce game, especially tough with super bouncy new balls that helped Michaela come from 3-1 down to level but, once we were acclimated and ripped some of the felt off them, they also helped me get over the line. Best of luck for the rest of the round and look forward to hitting again soon!" -- MG

Player Comments:

  • "A close match which could have gone either way. Amelia is just starting competitive tennis and she had a few niggles despite which she put on a terrific display and at one stage had me hanging on for dear life at 1-3 in the final set. Fortunately my greater matchplay experience enabled me to prevail (just!) in the end. Amelia is a promising player and with a little more experience will be more than a handful on the tennis court."  -- Biswadip

Player Comments:

  • "A challenging hit with the wind having a party at one end of the court. Plenty of fun all-court rallies and some outrageous mishits going for winners but serve was the big difference in this match. Tough day on court when you get just 7/45 first serves in and hit 13 double faults, but we both had fun and the scoreline doesn't really do the match justice. Thanks again for the hit and best of luck for the rest of the round!"  -- MG

Massimo and I were up 4-2, then going down 5-4, up 6-5 and wasting a set point, eventually taking the time break. After that we rode the high and didn't let the guys back in.
