Player Comments:

  • "Kenneth has great groundstrokes and good passing shots. I had some good luck with netcords and a couple of undeserved fluke drop shots. Kenneth certainly deserved the second set and the first was closer than the scoreline may suggest. We had a very enjoyable game. "  -- Alasdair

Reveal CommentDaud Sakandar bt Thomas Oldham (Jul 28) 6-1, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "LTL always asks if the match was a walkover; despite having played the match, I was tempted to tick yes on this occasion... Daud is a top player, and as is often the case for the weaker opponent I thoroughly enjoyed getting thrashed. It might not look like it by the scoreline, but he bought out some of my best tennis, forcing me to serve tactically and deploy every shot I have (when I could). On top of a fun match he is also a gent. However, hopefully you won't manage to complete all your other matches thus allowing me to illegitimately claim the League One throne muhahaha! Thanks a lot Daud, and looking forward to another hit soon!"  -- Thomas
  • "Good match v Thomas. A lot of winners and big returns. Will get another hit with you soon." -- David

Player Comments:

  • "Really brutal first set for both of us - we both seemed capable of punishing each other in similar ways, and running things down too. Ooofff. Second set had a few swings in form as the light drew in but Scott saw a wee comeback from me off very tidily in the end. Onto the champ toebreak and I returned the favour seeing off a comeback from Scott. Really enjoyable and physical game as always against Scott, thanks a lot!"  -- Thomas

Mick Mooney bt Barnaby Webb (Jul 25) 7-6 (10-8), 6-2
Reveal CommentGamal Haddou bt Craig Chamberlain (Jul 21) 6-3, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "In the 28°C heatwave we played our game. The first set edged forward neck and neck until I was 4-3 ahead and then luck was on my side to get the next two games. Craig plays some very strong serves which I could only block to return. One game was over before I knew what happened! However too many faults during other games allowed me to keep level. Some rallies he won with brilliant shots and the heat was reminding me of my last 2 losses. Somehow the score got to 5-4 in the 2nd set and I had 2 game points. Craig stayed focussed and levelled it. But his lack of play this year was to my advantage and I managed to win 2 points to finish the ordeal. I joked winter 🥶 3°C is more my temp. Hope for a rematch in the future."  -- Gamal
Reveal CommentGeoff Nathan bt Andy Rhattigan (Jul 20) 6-7 (3-7), 6-4, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "A really tight match played over a very long 2 1/2 hours on one of the hottest days of the year. Record amounts of water downed during the game. All of which probably took a toll on the quality of the match but it seemed like an achievement just to get it completed. Phew!"  -- Geoff
Reveal CommentGeoff Nathan bt Kevin Kelly (Jul 12) 7-6 (7-4), 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Match played in a good spirit on a beautiful summers day. A very tight first set with as many breaks of serve as holds. Don’t think Kevin’s injury helped in the second set. Sure once that hip is in full working order Kevin will be a seriously hard nut to crack. "  -- Geoff
Reveal CommentCraig Chamberlain bt Kevin Kelly (Jul 7) 6-4, 3-6, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Enjoyable match on a slightly sweaty indoor court at Newlands. I got off to a good start in set 1 but Kevin came back and nearly took it to a tie breaker. Set 2 was a struggle for me with consistency and Kevin played much better. The final set saw Kevin struggling with an injury initially but he battled to win a couple of games before I was able to close it out. Always a pleasure to play Kevin. Thanks for the match and good luck in the rest of the round. "  -- Craig

Reveal CommentBrian Polding-Clyde bt Nicholas Ward (Jul 23) 6-0, 4-6, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Usually when a 6-0 occurs, the players will sometime say the set was much closer than the scoreline suggests, but in this instance I got completely annihilated. 3rd set I lost a few key points which led to a pretty comfortable victory for Brian. My serve was horrendous but Brian kindly gave me some vital pointers which'll add some much needed consistency to it. He's a top fella, and if you read this Brian, thanks again for all the advice mate. Best of luck in your final game (if you manage to play it)."  -- Nicholas

  • "Really competitive match with very little to choose between us One game in particular was a marathon and must have lasted over 20 minutes. Larry has a wicked slice backhand that had me picking the ball up off my toes when it wasn’t skimming past me. The last two sets were nip and tuck and could have gone either way. Just came down to the odd point here and there. Thanks very much for the match Larry and best of luck with your remaining games."  -- James
