Player Comments:

  • "Hong is a much better player than the score suggests. He hit some excellent shots. Unfortunately the damp courts made running difficult and this impacted the quality of our game. An enjoyable match despite the wet courts."  -- Richard
Reveal CommentTom Bird bt David Crowley (May 10) 6-1, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Enjoyable match with David played in perfect conditions. David has a strong serve and good shots from both forehand and backhand. I was generally staying in the points longer and took advantage of short balls and came into the net when possible. Looking forward to our next one. "  -- Tom
Reveal CommentIan Emery bt James Cumming (May 9) 1-6, 6-4, [11-9]

Player Comments:

  • "I am sure James would agree but warming up it felt like David v Goliath such was the gulf in class. Predictably James won the first set in no time at all. Somehow I found myself 3-0 up in the second set. James started playing more conservatively and the rallies became more tense. At 5-1 up I thought the unthinkable might happen and I might actually win a set. James though won the next three games and I thought my chance had gone, however I won a tight 10th game to take the set. With time short we played a championship tiebreaker (had we played a normal third set I am sure James would have won) which I somehow won 11-9. We both left the court in a state of shock thinking how on earth did that happen! It felt like day light robbery."  -- Ian
Reveal CommentIan Emery bt David Crowley (May 7) 4-6, 6-4, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "At 4-6, 2-4 0-30 it looked like David was going to win in straight sets. I dug though incredibly deep to win the second set and eventually win the match after more than 3 hours. A very close match that could have gone either way."  -- Ian

Player Comments:

  • "A good match in nice weather this evening. I managed to start well and hit a few winners and first serves. Tyrell got around the court quickly and hit some very good shots. The second set was close and Tyrell served better, forcing me to hold my own serve. Thanks for the game "  -- Richard

Reveal CommentIan Emery bt Tyrell Bailey (Apr 29) 3-6, 6-4, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Before the match Tyrell suggested we book the court for three hours given our last match was a gruelling 3 setter. When Tyrell raced into a 4-0 lead in the first set I did wonder if we would even need the court for one hour. I avoided the whitewash but Tyrell won the first set fairly easily 6-3. The second set was a very tense affair with long games and and even longer rallies. It could have gone either way but I managed to win 6-4 and carried the momentum through to final the final set. After 2.5 hours I was very tired!"  -- Ian

Player Comments:

  • "Perfect day for tennis, first time this year it was actually warm on court. Tyrell started very strongly and was 3-0 40/30 up, I managed to start making more balls and was able to start winning more points and took the first set 6-4. The second set was close throughout and I managed to take it 6-3. Really enjoyable and competitive game played in perfect conditions. Looking forward to the next one. "  -- Tom

I was up at 5-2 in the final set and squandered that lead with far too many mistakes, but was able to close it out in a 3rd set breaker.
