Even though we only played two sets, the match took two and a half hours. Hope we get chance to play again"  -- Joseph

Player Comments:

  • "An absolute epic - 2.5 hours, 3 sets and 310 points played. After tactical input from Raphael (our group’s own “Iago” - I’m pretty sure Jamie also received some advice!) I set out playing my favourite serve & volley style game which was working a treat: I won the first set and was 5-1 up in the second.. and then the tables turned. Jamie stormed back, winning 5 games in a row and then the tie break to clinch the second. The third set was a microcosm of the first two: I got to 5-2 before Jamie came charging back into it. The last two games each lasted over 10 mins, with the final game going to deuce 8 times before I finally wore Jamie down. Great match - thanks Jamie!"  -- Rupert

Player Comments:

  • "Thanks for this enjoyable match Josh. Your 1st serve was amazing and by far the best in the group I would say when it comes, no disrespect to any other players in the group. 1st set - Josh played really well and ran away with 3 -1. Then his consistency went down a bit which allowed me to come back and at the end it was anybody's game in the tie break. 2nd set - I managed to run away 3 - 0 and we had a really hard fight in the fourth game that I won and at this point Josh could not recover anymore and I managed to put it to bed."  -- Raphael

Player Comments:

  • "Match completed from January. Safe to say neither of us were particularly happy with how we played in this extremely tense affair! Very tight and could easily have gone either way in both tie breaks. Relieved to get over the line against a very challenging opponent - good luck Raphael in your final two matches"  -- Jamie

Reveal CommentRupert Duff bt John Madden (Jan 31) 7-5, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Fun game played in challenging conditions with gusting wind and the low winter sun. The games were closer than the second set score suggests (66 to 54 points overall), we were both a bit tentative in the first set but I gained confidence from just edging it 7-5 which made all the difference for the second set."  -- Rupert
