Player Comments:

  • "As always, a competitive match with Adrian. I was quick off the blocks while Adrian was a bit error-prone in the 1st set which made it relatively straightforward for me. Adrian got into his groove in the 2nd set while I struggled a bit and had to dig deep in the end to close it out. Thanks Adrian for the game! "  -- Siddhartha

Player Comments:

  • "Our planned match got rained off so we played this match indoors. David applied a lot of pressure throughout with his pace and strong forehand. I took a strong lead in the second set and had match points at 5-2, but I was not able to convert and David won the next two games which put my final service game under significant pressure. A fun and tight match that was swung on account of a few unforced errors."  -- Paul

I was just able to pinch the winning points at the right time. Thank you for the game Ross and good luck."  -- David

Reveal CommentBen Coyle bt David Hurrell (Sep 7) 4-6, 6-0, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Beautiful late summer’s evening for tennis. David took a commanding 3-0 lead in the first set with some great passing shots and use of the slice. Took me a while to get the hang of his leftie serve as well. I held after the early break but couldn’t get one back until 5-3 when I scraped it. Only to immediately lose my serve in the next game and David to close out the set 6-4. Thankfully I’d built a little momentum by that point and shaken off some early nerves to comfortably win the second set. Third set was a tighter affair but I did get the early break in the first game which carried me through for a 6-3 win. Some top shotmaking from both of us today which led to a very enjoyable, competitive match. Good luck with the rest of the league."  -- Ben

I eventually won 7-3 on the tie break. We started the 2nd set but had to stop at 2-2 due to it getting dark. To be continued..."  -- Nadeem
  • "We finished our match today. The second set was very evenly matched. A few school boy errors allowed Mirko to break my serve and take the second set. In the third set, I was up against some very strong serves from Mirko.

The first set we were fairly evenly matched and was hard fought. But sadly the second set didn't go my way and was over fairly quickly. I managed to get some good shots in but you were the better player. Well done!

  • "Hi Siobhan, thanks for a great game. The first set was quite evenly matched. We had some great rallies. I remember one of the games had a 12 point deuce. We kept battling it out with no-one quite able to win the advantage point. I think the 1st set took us over an hour to play. At the beginning of the second set the sun decided to poke it's head out from behind the clouds blinding me each time it was my service. Combined with Siobhan's precision placing of the ball, she had me running all over the court and quickly finished me off. Well done!

Reveal CommentWilliam Essex bt Siobhan Hennessy (Aug 22) 7-6 (7-4), 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "This was a fun match on a damp slippery court. I started off well taking the 1st 4 games but Siobhan came back strongly and began hitting winners eventually getting to a 6-5 lead in the set while errors had crept into my game. In the tie break I was lucky to be starting off on the less slippery side of the court without the sun in my eyes. The start of the second set saw some exciting rallies, running from side to side, one of which left me flat on my back following quite a hard fall but luckily ungrazed and unhurt. I nearly repeated the trick a few rallies later! Eventually I took the 2nd set but was lucky on a number of shots catching the net and just landing the right side.Lovely to meet you Siobhan- good luck for your remaining matches!"  -- William
