Collapse AllFrome Singles - Round 13 | Thursday 6 June 2019 to Wednesday 31 July 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 3 July 2019)
Only the one group this time, but all but one of the matches was played which is excellent. And judging by the brilliant commentaries (there seemed to be half marathons happening on and off the court) this round was a lot of fun. Thanks for taking part. If you can spread the word about future rounds we would be really grateful. The more players, the better the mix of standards and the more enjoyable it is for everyone (we hope). If you are telling other players, don't forget to mention that players who complete three matches by the mid-point receive a free can of tennis balls, there is a winner's prize to the value of £20 and the league offers lots of other discounts and offers (including the chance to take part in the Local Tennis Leagues section of the annual Wimbledon ballot!).
Just one solitary match remained unplayed in this terrific round. Of course every match can be important in the points chase and the chances are that if Adam had taken on Jeremy he might have picked up the extra point that would have allowed him to draw clear of Terry at the top of the table. As is is though, Terry picks up his second group win. Although he tied on points with Andy, and although Andy ended the round with one more win, Terry beat Andy in their head-to-head. When it comes to breaking ties at the top of the table, that matters! Terry should be congratulated too for earning points for sets won in two of his losses. In the end these were also vital. Huge commiserations to Andy who picks up the silver. There is a lot to fight for in the next round!
