Collapse AllEdinburgh Women's Singles - Round 6 | Thursday 11 April 2019 to Wednesday 5 June 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 8 May 2019)
Only two of all possible matches were not played, which by our reckoning, means 87% of all available matches were played. That's a great statistic. Many thanks to everyone for their commitment. This may have been a small league with just one group but as the many match commentaries show, games were played in a great and friendly spirit. Well done all!
Last time Roberta played in this league, back in round 1, she topped the group. Now she has done it again. A clear round with 5 wins out of 5 and bonus points to boot, lands here at the top of the podium, so many congratulations to her. Lindsay was only two points behind, losing only to the champ, though she did make her work for it. "So many long rallies," said Roberta. "I don't think I could have survived a third set." Thanks for all the great match commentaries and good to hear of Eleanor's "great forehand", Christiane's net skills, Ana-Maria's persistence and the enjoyable games with Mettje. Well played all!
