Really evenly matched throughout. Enjoyable as always, thanks David!"  -- Jerome

Reveal CommentJerome O'Meara bt Ben Mayhew (Nov 26) 7-5, 0-6, [11-9]

Player Comments:

  • "Once the blood got moving around the body we enjoyed ideal conditions. With the still day and dry surface a competitive match ensued. After a tight first set with a lot of running and rallies, Ben gathered himself and began blitzing me with angles and depth. Thanksgiving happened recently across the pond, but over here it was more like Shanksgiving with the state of some of my forehands ending up as mad winners. In a deciding tiebreak Ben had a match point but I managed to glitch it back in and just about pull out the win. Good to meet you Ben!"  -- Jerome

Reveal CommentChris Warland bt Jerome O'Meara (Nov 19) 6-0, 3-6, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "In a tennis duel against Jerome, battling gusts of 50 mph added an unexpected layer of challenge. Frustration loomed as the wind played havoc, balls were booted and rackets found themselves victims of our shared vexation, tossed in moments of sheer exasperation. Yet, amidst the turmoil, a fierce determination emerged. Each point won felt like a triumph over the uncontrollable elements. The match became a test of resilience, pushing us beyond our limits. Despite the adversities, there was a strange satisfaction in confronting the chaos together—a shared experience etched with the gusty struggles that defined our tennis encounter."  -- Chris

Reveal CommentJerome O'Meara bt Jessica Hylands (Nov 11) 7-5, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Stunning conditions as the winter sun glistened off the coastal Fishermen’s Green courts. The game was more back and forth than Ange Postecoglou’s 9 man high line against Chelsea last week. Much like that match it was entertaining and hard to tell which way the momentum would swing at points. Jessica always kept me guessing by finding angles and short balls to throw me off my rhythm. Made for a fun but taxing game! Thanks Jessica "  -- Jerome

Reveal CommentJerome O'Meara bt Craig Armour (Nov 3) 2-6, 6-2, 7-6 (9-7)

Player Comments:

  • "A moments break from the storm. Blue skies shining forth. This could mean only one thing. The Craig and Jerome Derby took centre stage at Hampden Park. Craig wasted no time laying down his mark early on. Slicing balls so much as to skin them of there yellow felt covering. A vicious start from Craig, 6-2. I managed to fight back in the second: Craig was moving me around the court until I was able to mitigate his slice with a pizza cutter of my own. In the final set Craig brought out the moonball: placing balls high bouncing right into my eyeline with the sun. I felt like phoning Local Leagues and having him arrested for this tactic. But as the old saying goes, all's fair in love and war. And with that phrase in mind, I returned the favour."  -- Jerome
