Player Comments:

  • "It’s amazing how close almost every game can be and yet one point makes the difference seen in the results. A great evening to play, and as I’ve suggested, the reported result doesn’t tell the story in a match which swung back and forth with very few ‘easy’ games. Great to see you Andrew, thanks for the very enjoyable match . , very enjoyable "  -- Simon

Player Comments:

  • "A good match in perfect conditions albeit a little humid. Very close in the first set but I just managed to get the vital points. Both playing a little cautiously trying not to make any errors, but making them anyway! I went well in the lead in the second set but Andrew came back strongly and I was very relieved when I just managed to win the final game. Thanks a lot Andrew for a great game."  -- Clive

Player Comments:

  • "A hard hitting match with some great rallies played in almost perfect weather. Adam won the first two games with outright winners and seemed to be storming ahead but somehow I just managed to come back and win the set. In the second set Adam again was back on form and winning every game but again I just managed to stay in and eventually won 7-5. A great match which I was very grateful to win. Thanks Adam for an enjoyable game which was much closer than the score suggests."  -- Clive
