Reveal CommentTom Shrives bt Ben Coyle (Nov 4) 6-4, 2-6, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Another good match against Ben. Even as ever with a lot of great rallies, strong net plays, solid overheads, some not so solid overheads and a good mix of play. I hit about 15 net cords on the serve so a bit of luck there. Both actually served well but again struggled to hold serve at times - very even once into the rallies. Cheers Ben, good luck with the remainder."  -- Tom
Reveal CommentTom Shrives bt Neil Aitken (Nov 3) 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "That scoreline is unfair - it was actually a much closer match that probably should have been a 3 setter. I was lucky to find myself on the right side of the key points, having to defend a lot against Neil's great use of angles on the court. A good match, good luck with the remainder Neil."  -- Tom
Reveal CommentTom Shrives bt Georgi Zhelev (Nov 3) 2-6, 6-0, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "An odd match, with the scoreline demonstrating that! In truth I felt Georgi was often stronger but I managed to work out a way to get in front and my 1st serve then held up reasonably well. Good luck with the other matches Georgi. "  -- Tom

Player Comments:

  • "A really enjoyable game as always with Vanessa. Some very long rallies under bright floodlights that made it hard to see the ball at times. It was interesting playing on the artificial surface which I thought was really good. We had to rush through the game a bit as the light was fading but it was great fun! Thank you Vanessa and hope to play again some time!"  -- William

Reveal CommentWilliam Essex bt Harjinder Badyal (Nov 14) 1-6, 6-4, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "An overcast morning on a slippery court but a really exciting match.Twice during the match it tried to rain but luckily held off until just as we were finishing. I realised after the 1st set I needed to be more patient in rallies rather than too often attempting winners which has possibly been my downfall in previous league matches.This seems to have been the key and I was gradually able to win more of the rallies and after 3 set points take the tight 2nd set. I then got my serving working better in the final set but it required maximum focus and despite the scoreline I did not feel confident about winning until the very final point as each point and game was so close. What a match - great to meet you and I hope we can play again Harjinder!"  -- William

Some really good rallies and no opportunity to let the guard down at any point. "  -- Mark
