Reveal CommentPhil Zana bt Alan Lam (Sep 12) 6-1, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Having had a close match against Phil in the West Ham league that went 3 sets and 3 hours, my tactics were to be more aggressive this time around and see where that would get me. As the scoreline suggested, Phil's defence was impeccable. There was no getting through. Never the less, it was thoroughly enjoyable and lots to learn to take into the next match. Current H2H is 4-0 in Phil's favour so hopefully the fortune favours my way next time :)"  -- Alan

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.
