The final set could have gone either way, but Jeff just managed to hold on and take it 6-4. Some great rallies and many deuce games, really enjoyable match. "  -- Jeff

Player Comments:

  • "This was Paul's first game of the round and it took him a while to get going, with Jeff racing ahead to take the first set 6-1. The second set was very evenly matched and could have gone either way. The first 8 games were shared. Jeff then held his serve to take a 5-4 lead and then managed to break Paul's serve to take the match. Great game with some fantastic rallies on a very interesting 'clay' surface. "  -- Jeff
Reveal CommentGavin Kerr bt Carlo Ninchi (Jun 7) 6-2, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Gavin broke early and then held serve to take a 2-0 lead. With an epic game on Carlo serve, which had about 15 deuces (lost count!) before Gavin finally won after Carlo double faulted, was a key game as Gavin then went on to take a 5-0 lead. Carlo rallied and fought back to 5-2 with a break and a hold of serve, before Gavin took the set after a tight service game. Carlo didn't really get going in the second set and despite playing some wonderful winners and hitting some great serves, including two aces, Gavin won that set 6-0, although, there were a few close games in this set."  -- Gavin
Reveal CommentJeff Brown bt Carlo Ninchi (May 30) 6-3, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Carlo stormed into a 3-0 lead and had 15-40 on Jeff's serve to take it to 4-0. However, Jeff managed to hold his serve to take it to 3-1 and this proved to be the turning point, with Jeff going on to win the next 5 games to take the set 6-3. Carlo started well again in the second set taking a 3-2 lead. Jeff then broke Carlo's serve to draw level at 3-3 and then went on to take the next 3 and the match. A well fought, competitive game played in good spirit on another sunny evening. "  -- Jeff
Reveal CommentGavin Kerr bt Jeff Brown (May 27) 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (7-5)

Player Comments:

  • "An epic match that could have gone either way. The first two sets mirrored each other with Gavin taking a 4-1 lead in the first, a mini fightback from Jeff before Gavin took the last two games and the set. This was then repeated in reverse for Jeff to take the second set. The third set followed the same pattern of the first two, with Gavin taking a 4-1 lead. Jeff then broke and held serve to make it 4-3. A hold from Gavin took him to within one game of victory and at 30-30 in the next game Gavin missed a sitter of a volley to have match point. Jeff held to make it 5-4 and then broke to level at 5-5. Two more breaks were exchanged to take it to a tie-break. Gavin went 6-2 up before Jeff fought-back to 6-5. Gavin saw it out with a volley. "  -- Gavin
Reveal CommentGavin Kerr bt Ian Hirst (May 26) 7-5, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Ian raced into a 0-3 lead before Gavin held serve to pull one back. Ian held the break of serve until 2-4 when Gavin managed to break back after a very close game, in which Ian initially had a 40-0 lead before Gavin brought it back to deuce, then saved a few more game points before finally getting the break back. The next three games went with serve before Gavin managed to break Ian's serve to make it 6-5 and then held to win the set. Gavin then broke Ian in the first game of the second set to love and managed to keep the break until 4-3 when Ian broke back to love to level at 4-4. Gavin then immediately broke back to love and then held to win the match. A very close match with some good rallies and winning shots."  -- Gavin
Reveal CommentJeff Brown bt George Williams (May 25) 6-2, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Jeff stormed into a 5-0 lead,and then George found his touch coming back to 5-2 before Jeff held his serve to take the first set. The second set was very even and could have gone either way. George took a 4-3 lead before Jeff battled back to take the next 3 games and the match. Great competitive game in glorious sunshine. "  -- Jeff

Reveal CommentGavin Kerr bt Annie Brown (May 9) 6-7 (4-7), 6-4, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "A very close competitive match that swung one way, then another, then back again!. Annie took the first set on a tie-breaker after coming from 4-2 down. She then took a 0-4 lead in the second set before Gavin won nine games on the bounce to take the second set 6-4 and a 3-0 third set lead. Annie then won two games back to make it 3-2 but Gavin managed to take the next three games to win the match. Some epic rallies and long games in a match lasting two and a quarter hours. The key moment was probably Gavin changing rackets at 2-0 in the second set from a band new, never used before, racket to his trusted old one! "  -- Gavin

Player Comments:

  • "This was an epic match I was playing well in first set and was 5-2 up and at deuce when there was a medical emergency on next court. This resulted in delay as I dealt with the situation. On resumption I fortunately won the game to go one set up. Second set was close and credit to Martin he was able to edge it 6-4. He then raced to a 3-0 lead in final set. However I refocused and managed to claw the set back to 3-3 at this point the rallies became long and I could feel the lactic acid building up after each point. It remained close though and we got to 5-5. I was able to hold serve and then broke Martin's serve to win the match. Thanks Martin for great match and also assisting me in dealing with emergency."  -- Ben

In the second, it was his turn to run the tables, reducing a 5-0 lead to 5-3 but managed to take the next one otherwise the waiver would have become a wobble !! Thanks for a great match"  -- Derek

Player Comments:

  • "A highly competitive match where the momentum kept changing throughout. A tight first set with the lead changing hands many times ended in a tie break and Mark edging it. Philip then upped his game and Mark went into his usual second set dark place and the momentum carried into third set with Philip taking a 3-0 lead. Mark finally managed to find his game again and took the next six games, though with excruciatingly long rallies and lots of deuces. The match finally finished after over 2.5 hours just before night drew in. In short a very fun, close, but tiring match."  -- Mark

Reveal CommentCaroline Appel bt Peter Frost (Jun 3) 6-0, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Peter was swept away. Caroline has been the most technically gifted of the opponents I have played during the last twelve months. Considering also like many in our league Caroline has had a long lay off during the last few years. There is credit to the LTA to launch these grass roots competitions, for although we are not going to find another elite tennis player we will bring more tennis to the masses. Seeing the stats on obesity, we need to exercise more and eat the right type of food. Apologies to preaching to the converted."  -- Peter
Reveal CommentJeannine Mansell bt Peter Frost (May 31) 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Early start as Jeannine had to be away at 08.30 hrs. I made a slow start as I always do trying to work out a strategy which gives me an advantage. With volleying which is my game you have to put your opponent at a disadvantage by hitting the ball away. If not you are exposed and can be passed or lobbed. For both sets I allowed Jeannine to large a lead before I started coming back. With our last game in the second set, if I had won it we would have had to come back to finish it on another day. As it was I lost it and the match after a very enjoyable game."  -- Peter

Reveal CommentNicholas Battle bt Peter Frost (May 28) 6-1, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Played on a hot humid day. Nick was able to outlast Peter in the rallies. Peter played his usual strategy, coming forward as much as possible leaving him exposed to the passing shots and being lobbed. The second set had more rallies but Nick was able to perform much retrieving. in order to keep in the rallies. Not having played much up to now I can only see Nick improving and perhaps challenge for promotion."  -- Peter
