Player Comments:

  • "Richard is one of the most athletic players I've ever played. His physical strength, agility and stamina are premia. We played a lot of long rallies which are always to his advantage coz of his stamina. In the second set, he had a chance of closing the set 4-5 (30-40), but I got lucky with the assistance of the net :-) Better luck next time, buddy. You are indeed a great player. "  -- Temitope
Reveal CommentRichard Randle bt Tosin Adenuga (Jul 16) 6-4, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Beautiful weather this morning for a good match against a great guy. Tosin is a solid player who hit lots of good shots. The first set was very close and I thought we were in for a long match. I was then able to find some winners and first serves in order to win it. Tosin deserved more than one game in the second set. Thanks for the game and I look forward to playing again."  -- Richard

Player Comments:

  • "Temi is certainly best player in the league. I was hoping to win a set maybe but he is just too good. My wrist and both knees being slightly injured did not help but even fully fit I'd struggle to get to that desired set most likely."  -- Eldin
Reveal CommentTosin Adenuga bt Allan Macalino (Jul 9) 6-4, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Allan started like a house on fire - holding his serves with ease and hitting excellent getting strokes, finishing at the net with aplomb He went up 4-1 then I developed some consistency and was able to work points better - the score isn't reflective of the closeness, and the game was played in excellent spirits. Thanks for the game, Allan. "  -- Tosin

Player Comments:

  • "The first set was 7-6 and could have gone either way a real 50/50 set. The second set Eldin’s level dropped and we still had a number of a deuce games, however I was able to take the set 6-0. Enjoyable game in windy conditions. "  -- Tom
  • "Agreed. And Tom is currently a better player. Sadly I have a few niggles including an uncomfortable wrist injury and pain in both knees and was unable to play full match properly." -- Eldin
Reveal CommentRichard Randle bt Josh Bullivant (Jul 2) 6-4, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "A good match which would've been even better had it not rained for the duration of the first set, leading to a slippery court. Josh is an excellent tennis player and technically one of the better players in the leagues I've played in. He will undoubtedly win a lot of matches and I'm pleased to have played him before he gets more singles practice. The next match we play could have a very different outcome. Thanks for the game, Josh."  -- Richard

Reveal CommentRichard Randle bt Allan Macalino (Jun 23) 6-0, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • " A year ago, I lost to Allan in this league, so I know what a good tennis player he is. A combination of an unknown court, distractions from other courts and a bad knee hindered him today but the scoreline in no way reflects the ability of the two of us. Allan is a quality player with good shots and an excellent understanding of the game - I hope we can play again in the future and have a close match." -- Richard

Player Comments:

  • "An almost identical scoreline to our match in the last round but sadly, without the same quality. Tom and I both made more mistakes than usual today and I scraped both sets. Another good workout in perfect conditions on a warm evening even if it wasn't our best match. Looking forward to our next game."  -- Richard

I was able to just stay in each point for a bit longer from 0-5 down in the first set tiebreak to win after a net cord in my favour at set point.

Player Comments:

  • "A great evening match against Joel, went the distance and couldn't have been any closer! Instead of buckling under pressure, both of us upped our game and played better in critical points. In the first 2 sets the scoreline remained pretty tight despite lots of breaks of serve. In the third set Joel got quite a big lead, 4-1, and it looked like he might run away with it, but I managed to turn things around and it ended with a tie break, which was very close, with match points for both players. By the time we finished it was about 9:40pm, getting pretty dark! It was quite fitting that a bat flew overhead immediately after we shook hands. Thanks for the game, look forward to playing again."  -- John

  • "Very close marathon match (about 3 hours!) which could have gone either way, shame we couldn't both be winners. Ruth is a tenacious tennis player and doesn't give up on points, and neither do I, which made for some long grinding points, and games which seemed to usually end up going to deuce.

Player Comments:

  • "An epic, gruelling, match which went the distance, about 2 1/2 hours long. Each set could have gone either way (except maybe the second one) and there were plenty of breaks of serve and also very long games which kept going to deuce, ad, deuce, ad... Conditions, which started out cool but humid and ended up just plain hot, may have played a factor as we both ended up using up our water reserves by the end, but I had the advantage in that regard, having brought almost 3 litres! Top quality tennis from start to end, look forward to playing again."  -- John
Reveal CommentJohn Hewett bt Lana Fedulova (Jun 29) 6-2, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Conditions were moderately cool but very humid, a little bit of drizzle thankfully didn't come to anything. Once Lana got into her stride, she made the second set rather tricky for me and it could have gone either way. After Lana's serve got broken in the first game, I was feeling quite comfortable, but then she took full advantage of a brief lapse in concentration and went on to win the next 4 games in a row, making it 4-1, with what felt like unstoppable momentum. I managed to turn things around and win the next 4 games but then promptly got broken, making it 5 all, followed by a couple of tight games which went my way on the day. Lots of games went to deuce and lots of great rallies. Thx for the game, look forward to playing again"  -- John
