Collapse AllDundee Singles - Round 19 | Thursday 24 September 2020 to Wednesday 18 November 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 21 October 2020)

Another well contested round in Dundee Tennis League with 2 busy groups and 3 new players in the mix! Great to see you all making the most of the opportunity to carry on playing tennis north of the border and we're looking forward to seeing you in action again next round!

Group Summary:

An exciting contest at the top of Group 1 as Leagues debutant Michael tied with runner up Darren on 12 points from 5 wins, so who would take the title? This fell to Michael who figured out a way to play Darren's "unorthodox brand of tennis" and win their match in straight sets. Michael's serve helped him across the finish line in a close second set against Anthony too... well played!

  1. Michael Tomaszewski [W5] 12 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Darren Pake 8.2 [W5, L1] 12 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP

Player Comments:

  • "Was nice meeting and playing James today. It's never easy the first time you play in the league, especially for us non-club players! Looking forward to playing again."  -- Gavin
Reveal CommentDaniel Chambers bt James Williamson (Nov 12) 6-4, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Thanks for the game. James played some great angled shots and dropshots. It felt like I had to cover a lot of ground to win some of the points. I was hitting the ball cleanly off the ground, in spite of the usual mixed bag on serve. It was nice to meet you and hopefully we can play again some time."  -- Daniel
Reveal CommentJP Curran bt James Williamson (Nov 11) 6-0, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Thanks for playing the match at short notice James and in pretty damp conditions, not many are willing to play through the drizzle early in the morning! Due to the wet, the balls were heavy at times and play was inconsistent so the match obviously came down to keeping the ball in play and avoiding mistakes and on the day the balance of errors was in my favour. I look forward to hopefully playing you again in the future and of course in better weather." -- JP
Reveal CommentMichael Tomaszewski bt Gavin Nicol (Nov 10) 6-0, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Thanks for the game Gąvin! We had some amazing rallies and Gav hit some insane winners. At the end of the day, though, tennis once again proved to be a game of mistakes which I happened to make fewer on the day."  -- Michael
Reveal CommentAnthony Mordente bt Daniel Chambers (Nov 6) 6-1, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Thanks for the game Daniel. Score line flattered me today! Closer game than score suggests! "  -- Anthony
Reveal CommentMichael Tomaszewski bt James Williamson (Nov 3) 6-0, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Thanks for the game James! We had some nice exchanges and your drop shot can really be tricky to read! Like we discussed after the game, consistency proved to be the key. Good luck for your next games!"  -- Michael
Reveal CommentDarren Pake bt JP Curran (Oct 30) 6-0, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "JP beat me in our last match at the start of the year but I raced into an early lead here and played with a lot of confidence. Felt I moved really well in somewhat slippy conditions and played well off both wings. Thanks for the match "  -- Darren
  • "Darren outclassed me on the day in some difficult conditions. I didn’t feel that I could get a foothold at any point in our games and against such a consistent player like Darren I wasn’t ever going to get a chance to play my way back into the match following a slow start. Well done Darren, I hope any future match is just as enjoyable if not a bit more competitive." -- JP
Reveal CommentDarren Pake bt Gavin Nicol (Oct 24) 6-1, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Tricky conditions today with court being a bit wet and slippery but still some nice exchanges. Was trying to shorten the points by going to the net or being more aggressive from the back of the court due to the conditions. A few bad errors from me but overall solid match. Good luck rest of the round Gavin thanks for the match"  -- Darren

Match of the Group:

Reveal CommentDaniel Chambers bt Gavin Nicol (Oct 17) 6-4, 7-6 (7-5)

Player Comments:

  • "Great match today Gavin! Both sets were very tight. In the first, Gavin was dominating in the early games. He was solid on the return and I wasn't getting any cheap points on serve. Then I managed to turn it around with some good returning of my own. The second set could have gone either way. Gavin made a lot more first serves than before so I wasn't having as much luck on the return. My own serve was also more consistent though and I mixed things up quite nicely at the net. Thanks Gavin and good luck with the rest of your games."  -- Daniel
Reveal CommentMichael Tomaszewski bt Daniel Chambers (Oct 15) 6-0, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Thanks for the game Daniel and good luck for the rest of the round! If you get your serve as consistent as during our warm-down, you’ve some serious damage to make, I believe."  -- Michael
Reveal CommentDarren Pake bt Anthony Mordente (Oct 12) 6-1, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Anthony had beaten me each of the times we have played in the past but I got off to a strong start tonight. There were long deuce games at the start but I managed to find myself 4-1 up at a change of ends and from there I think Anthony started to lose some heart in the match. Anthony definetely wasn't at 100% while I tried to play my usual solid match and try not to make errors. There will be closer ones in the future for sure"  -- Darren
Reveal CommentMichael Tomaszewski bt Darren Pake (Oct 10) 6-3, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "It was a fun match despite the slippery/windy conditions and an unplanned break due to court bookings confusion. Darren plays an unorthodox brand of tennis and it was hard for me to figure him out at first. Luckily, I could rely on my serve again which gave me the comfort of trying out different strategies on return. Thanks for the game Darren and good luck for your next matches!"  -- Michael
Reveal CommentDarren Pake bt Daniel Chambers (Oct 7) 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Windy conditions made it difficult for long rallies as balls were drifting long a lot of the time. Daniel hit some big serves that I struggled to get back into play but with serving big there was also a lot of double faults. Thanks for match"  -- Darren
Reveal CommentMichael Tomaszewski bt Anthony Mordente (Oct 7) 6-3, 7-6 (7-3)

Player Comments:

  • "Such a nice game today Anthony! Anton is a great guy with incredible footspeed and a really strong mental game. I think you saved at least 20 break points today mate. I served big when it mattered, got some free points on my first delivery, guess that's what gave me the W in the end. Best of luck for the rest of your matches Anthony!"  -- Michael
Reveal CommentAnthony Mordente bt James Williamson (Oct 2) 6-0, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Good game today James. Welcome to the league! Nice guy that has a cheeky drop shot!! Well played mate and all the best for your matches."  -- Anthony
Reveal CommentDarren Pake bt James Williamson (Sep 28) 6-0, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "James first match in the tennis league so was going to be tough for him. I played a very solid match and me playing fairly regularly meant I was a lot more consistent. Good luck the rest of the round James. "  -- Darren
Reveal CommentAnthony Mordente bt Gavin Nicol (Sep 28) 2-6, 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Was a really fun match to start the round off with! I played lots of errors in all my matches last round, so was happier to play more consistent today, especially in the first set. Anton lifted his level and didn't let me into the 2nd and 3rd, a really good performance from him. Well done Anton!"  -- Gavin

  • "Well played today Jordan, sorry I wouldn't play the full match, the foot injury was just hampering me too much. Look forward to a rematch in future when I'm fully fit. Good luck with your remaining matches!"  -- David
Reveal CommentKenneth Lindsay bt Mitchell Rologas (Nov 7) 6-3, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Was very gloomy with the thick fog at Baxter Park. Though surprisingly the floodlights were on to brighten things up. Well played whoever fixed that. Mitchell had a slow start but then eventually got swinging and we both played some good tennis. Some great long rallies and many lengthy deuce game battles. Look forward to playing again. All the best."  -- Kenneth

  • "Well played tonight David. Especially when feeling that ankle. Looking forward to a rematch soon. Thanks again mate. "  -- Kris
Reveal CommentKenneth Lindsay bt Kris Mordente (Nov 3) 7-6 (8-6), 4-6, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Kris has improved a lot since our last league outing and ran me really close this time. I felt fortunate to win the first set. Saved set point earlier in the set and came back from 3-6 in the tiebreak. And 3rd set at 0-3 down was staring at defeat. I was feeling very tight at that stage but gradually edged my way back into it. Was a good competitive match throughout. Well played Kris and thanks again with the tricky scheduling."  -- Kenneth
Reveal CommentJames Morrison bt David Anderson (Nov 2) 6-4, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "It’s not every day I manage to claw a win against a player as good as David, but I’ll take this victory and enjoy it while I can. Some razor sharp shots down the line and first-class serves from David kept me on my toes but I somehow managed to pull through and edge it. I credit the new balls, which just seemed to like my racquet! "  -- James
Reveal CommentMitchell Rologas bt David Anderson (Oct 30) 6-2, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "I'm sorry that your mobility problems affected your play David, fully fit you probably would have won this. Thanks for coming out even though you weren't 100% and it was great to meet you."  -- Mitchell

Player Comments:

  • "Another good game against James on a very leafy court 3. Looking forward to the next one. Cheers mate. "  -- Kris
Reveal CommentKenneth Lindsay bt David Anderson (Oct 16) 6-4, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Was a great game under the lights latterly, and we both felt we were playing well. David playing the more enterprising tennis, it felt cruel in a way he didn't get more out of the match. I was playing the more consistent and arguably more boring defensive tennis. Plus ça change and all that... Keeping the ball in play is often good enough and sure was the case tonight. David though played some amazing shots: volleys, drop shots, rescue shots a la Djokovic from behind the baseline. Every shot in the book basically. Thanks again David and good luck in your return to the league. Welcome back!"  -- Kenneth

Reveal CommentKenneth Lindsay bt James Morrison (Oct 3) 6-2, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "'Normal sane people' wouldn't have played in today's conditions. But we are James and Kenny, the 2 longest players in the league having played every round from day 1. Let's just say we've both played in a lot worse over the years and well, isn't actually too bad to be honest once you are out there. No wind at least. It looked like I was going to run away with it today racing to 5-0 in a flash. As James then got to grips with the conditions was a really close competitive match from there on. Got a bit farcical towards the end, maybe, with the heavy rain but glad we played after all. Thanks again James. Was hard to bear today. Great comebacks especially 2nd set from 0-5."  -- Kenneth
