Reveal CommentCraig Armour bt Chris Warland (Mar 10) 6-4, 2-6, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Yet another close match with Chris played mostly in the rain. Some really good rallies and some speedy first serves from Chris. After a close first set which I took 6-4 Chris then took the second 6-2 and at that stage age was catching up with me and I thought the end was near. Fortunately for me, Chris hadn't had his Weetabix in the morning and I managed to take advantage of that and took the third 6-1 helped too by some lovely Scottish rainy weather! Look forward to having a rematch in the next round."  -- Craig

Player Comments:

  • "Thank you Chris for a great (and very close) game; it's a shame we didn't get to finish, although I don't think I would have had the energy for a third set, so I think I got off lightly! See you in the next round."  -- Anthony

Reveal CommentSimon Underwood bt Daniel Nelson (Mar 3) 6-4, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A great match in conditions we've not seen for some time! Sun and no wind!! A close and tentative first set with Daniel dropping some first serve bombs to keep me worried. The second set saw some more good tennis but (fortunately for me), Daniel's big serve was less consistent. Great fun, and I can't believe it's been 9 months since we last played. I look forward to the next one."  -- Simon
Reveal CommentBaris Ali Kibar bt Daniel Nelson (Mar 2) 6-2, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Very competitive match against Danial who has very strong first serv and brilliant single hand back hand. in the 1st set I was consistent with my rally shots and effective servs, forcing my opponent to make errors. In the 2nd Daniel improved his effective 1st servs forcing me to make most of the errors, hence I think the last set was close and could have gone either way. Looking forward to meet again for another tennis encounter with Daniel. All the best."  -- Baris Ali

Reveal CommentJerome O'Meara bt Chris Warland (Feb 24) 6-3, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Chris came out strong with his signature slam-dunk -walloper serve causing all sorts of trouble for a scrambling Jerome. The rhythm of the match settled in a strange way with the average rally length being 1.5 shots. Chris launched a few short balls into neighbouring counties but when he found his spots they were unreturnable hammer blows. Jerome had some success to leaning into a high margin game from the baseline but also found the short balls a problem when he attempted to create shape he would end up sending them to the clouds. Could that have been the reason the clouds responded with hail stone storm of fury? Or was that Craig who was on the court next to us activating his special elemental power to disrupt D1 Dan’s game? "  -- Jerome
Reveal CommentDaniel Nelson bt Craig Armour (Feb 24) 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "An old fan favourite fixture made its return to the fabled purple and green of Hampden Park as two top pros faced off in what turned out to be a crazy afternoon of tennis. Daniel took the first set after playing some aggressive tennis, despite Craig’s new and enhanced ‘Bazooka’ serve as fans are calling it, and some incredible defensive shots making every rally one to savour. After Daniel stormed to a 3-0 lead in the 2nd set, Craig decided to use his special ability to call down the Scottish elements and an almighty shower of rain and hail followed. Craig dealt with these conditions very well and made the 2nd set very competitive, with Daniel having just enough to edge the final set. Good game Craig!"  -- Daniel

Reveal CommentCraig Armour bt Caroline Blaxland (Feb 13) 7-5, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "If there was a prize for the most improved player in the league then I would give it to Caroline. She hit many superb serves, returns and ground strokes and she raced to a 5-3 lead in the first set. I somehow managed to win the next 4 games to take the set. The second set was close too but I managed to scramble through and take it 6-4. If it had not been for someone with the initials S U who gave me a few serving lessons last month then I would have been on my way home after half an hour! Thanks for a great match and workout Caroline and not looking forward to playing you again in the next round!!"  -- Craig

Reveal CommentDaniel Nelson bt Jerome O'Meara (Feb 11) 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "After 9 months of anticipation two tennis titans finally collided on centre court in the heart of Hampden Park. The two walked out to an absolutely raucous reception from local fans in attendance, and they certainly got their moneys worth. With more deuce points than stars in the known universe, this matchup was a gruelling one for both competitors. Daniel managed to edge the majority of these tight games with his signature glitchy movement around the court, showcasing great defensive skills against the ferocious Jerome “the juggernaut” forehand. Without doubt, this was the highest level of tennis seen in this age old rivalry and fans will be keeping a close eye on it to see how it continues to evolve in the coming years."  -- Daniel

Reveal CommentJerome O'Meara bt Craig Armour (Feb 4) 6-2, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "As the harsh North Atlantic winds battered the purple and green courts of Hampden Park, two titans, two rivals looked to settle the score in the purest form of combat… boxing. That’s right, instead of tennis we swung at each other, onlookers aghast at the sheer violence. Nah, but it might as well have been with the incredible fight from us both. Long deuce games. Drop shots. Underarm serves. This match had it all. Craig has developed a vicious serve and aced me quite a few times! All the best in the league and looking forward to our future clashes!"  -- Jerome
