Player Comments:

  • "A really enjoyable match on a sunny Sunday morning. Lovely venue at Esher tennis club and always fun playing on the clay. Roberto played some great tennis and most of my service games went to deuce, but somehow I managed to keep ahead in the first set and then the second set went my way. Thanks for arranging Roberto - hope we get to play again soon. Tom"  -- Tom

Player Comments:

  • "Epic match with Mike in two locations, it had everything! First part of the match was in Giggs Hill where I started much better and put the 5-0 in the scoreboard. But Mike had an incredible come back and won the set in the tie break. I managed to win the second set in a more comfortable way but with 2-2 in the third set our time in the court was finished and we needed to move out. We quickly booked another court in Moseley Hurst and Mike drove us there to complete the match. This third set was also so close and it ended in another tie break where in this time I was luckier and closed the game 10-2 (we didn't know that it was to 7 only). Anyway, amazing game in a great spirit. Thanks Mike and hopefully we will play again soon! "  -- Javier

Player Comments:

  • "This was I think the tightest game of tennis I have ever played in the league and as always was another really enjoyable match. We started early and the court was quite slippy to begin with before drying out. We had many really long rallies but were both a little cautious at times chasing the ball so some could have lasted longer. The wind was also a feature but as it came right after storm Eunice we were very lucky to have got the match played at all as rain came shortly after we finished. Kevin very sportingly gave me the benefit of the doubt on a key line call on the point just before match point. It was an absolute pleasure to meet and play Kevin and I hope we can play again some time!"  -- William

  • "We nearly postponed but I think we were both glad to have risked the weather and windy and slippy court for a thoroughly enjoyable game of Tennis on a Sunday morning. Most games went to dueuce and we both trod quite carefully due to the conditions but that did not stop many long rallies with plenty of court coverage from both of us. Elaine generously gave me the benefit of the doubt at one point when we both forgot the score at a game point (or possibly not!). Thank you so much for agreeing to play Elaine and good luck with your remaining matches!"  -- William

Player Comments:

  • "A really enjoyable good humoured game of tennis. I don't think I have ever played with such a low bright sun in my eyes which was challenging for both of us, not only in serving but also in rallies, but added to the fun. We had many long and exciting rallies. Our match started just after the Nadal v Medvedev epic Australian Open final which I think inspired both of us and I had to apologise for being a little late due to this! It was lovely to meet you Leanne and good luck in your remaining matches!"  -- William
Reveal CommentMichael Dwyer bt Amelia Alston (Jan 29) 6-0, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Amazingly Amelia only started playing tennis last year and had never played a competitive match before! It was very windy and this played havoc with her service toss. On top of that, it was very very sunny, with the morning sun very low in the sky. Unfortunately, Amelia didn't have a visor or baseball cap so she was blinded half the time. Amelia has huge potential with a fine natural ability and top fitness. She was returning many of my widest serves and best shots with ease, improving fast as the match progressed. Such a pleasure meeting and playing Amelia, I do hope we get to play some friendly matches soon."  -- Michael

However, William got into his groove right from the start of the 2nd set and it was level pegging right up to the tie-break. In the tie-break William took an early lead, but faded a little enabling me to close it out. A real pleasure playing William again as a fierce, fair and good spirited competitor.
