In the second set I got lucky at times and my volleys got more accurate, but Mick always got into the rally and the 6-1 score was harsh on him. Good luck in the rest of your games."  -- Alasdair

We were both growing sceptical they would come back on, but apparently the delay is a safety feature so the bulbs don’t pop. Rob hit some powerful serves and we had some good rallies here and there.

Player Comments:

  • "Up with the larks for an early hit with Trevor at the Gorbals. I found some early rhythm that helped me to win the first set but life was much more difficult in the second as Trevor's serve became more consistent. I had to dig out some ugly games at 0-3 down to get into the set. Trevor hit some beautiful winners off both wings in an even set thereafter which I stole with a late break. Trevor is on the road back to match sharpness and it will only be a matter of time before he's winning more games than he loses. Thanks for the hit and I look forward to hosting you at Langside for a rematch soon."  -- Stuart

Player Comments:

  • "Thanks for having me over, Chris. I must say this was the hardest match I have played with you considering we have played loads of times. Yes, playing three days in a row is not ideal unless you are an 18 yr old Nadal. I am still unsure how I won the first set as I was already tired during the warmup. The second was clearly deserved to you as you ran away with it. We know each others game so much but, I see you have added a few more shots to your armamentarium and now have an aura of unpredictability. I think the difference today was a 5 min water break between set 2 & 3. As always it was a pleasure. "  -- Aji
Reveal CommentStuart Miller bt Aji Ugwu (Nov 12) 7-5, 2-6, 7-6 (7-1)

Player Comments:

  • "An excellent match played in two stages after time beat us first time out. Aji has a superb first serve that is fast and has a lot of dip on it and it took me quite a long time to get to grips with it. Allied to that he has a fierce forehand - he duly punishes short balls. I managed to overturn a break of serve to snatch the first set before Aji took control of the second. When we returned a week or so later I had to bring a better level of tennis. Both of us served well as the pressure grew towards the climax of the set. With no breaks of serve it was a tie break to settle it. I managed to get over the line after getting my nose in front. Absolutely nothing between us - already looking forward to a rematch. Thanks for hosting Aji."  -- Stuart

Player Comments:

  • "Always a tough match against Barnaby who was on top on the first set and recovered from the disappointment of losing a break advantage to take the time break. Barnaby's strength is his two-handed backhand and I had to vary my game to limit his opportunities on that side. Two long games at the start of set 2 went my way and that gave me the ascendency for the rest of the match. Thanks for coming over to Langside and good luck in your remaining games, Barnaby."  -- Stuart

Player Comments:

  • "Thanks Trevor for coming over. Like I mentioned to you, you will be unplayable once you fine-tune a few things. You serve from the 5th floor and there is not enough space to step back to get good purchase on those serves. Numerous times I was returning your serve above head height despite being 6 feet behind the baseline. Groundstrokes are fire 🔥. It would be a pleasure to play again as your game type requires a different set of skills to contend with. All the very best for the rest of your matches!"  -- Aji

The first set was determined by a couple of double faults in the first game (lucky I was not serving first!) while Trevor's strings broke at a terrible point for him in the second meaning he had to use a backup racket. Look forward to the next match"  -- Barnaby

The second set was a completely different story- Michael deservedly went 4-1 up in the second through a combination of skilful drop shots and powerful drives. Anything short or slow was put away with real aggression. The momentum then turned and Michael struggled to maintain the form he showed earlier in the set. An extremely competitive game- think we both surprised ourselves at the quality of some of the points.

I then managed to get a bit more consistency in my game and eventually won first set 7-5. 2nd set was tight too with some of the longest rallies I’ve had in a match for some time. Was delighted to get 2nd set over the line. Crucial match when I was serving at 3-2 up went on for some time with Charles pulling back from 40-0 down to take game to numerous deuce points.

  • "A hard fought game against Charles on his return to the leagues after a break of a few years. Charles took and early lead and there were several breaks of serve but in the end I was just a bit more consistent in some of the rallies. First set ended on a twenty five shot rally with several overheads and recoveries- best of luck with the rest of the league Charles."  -- David
Reveal CommentCharlie Connelly v Michael Law (Nov 5) 6-2, 3-6, 5-4 TBC

Player Comments:

  • "Michael and I agreed to play indoors due to weather forecast being poor so as we should have predicted under blue skies we headed into Gorbals tennis centre … Both first and second sets were very similar. I was 2 down in first before winning the next 9 games. At 3 down in second Michael then went on to win 6 in a row to take 2nd. In third we traded games until we got thrown out at 5 pm when Gorbals closed. As per previous matches with Michael it was close throughout with lots of deuce games so all to play for when we arrange to gets this finished. "  -- Charlie
Reveal CommentDavid Martyn bt Gary Vallely (Nov 5) 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Gary and I have very similar styles which made for a very enjoyable game: great topspin backhands one minute; easy forehands going six feet out the next. We both found our rhythm in the second set and had some good rallies. The only difference between us was my first serve. Thanks for the game Gary and best of luck for the rest of the league."  -- David

Reveal CommentDavid Martyn bt Amar Campbell (Oct 30) 6-1, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Always great to play Amar who had just come up a couple of groups having won his last one in some style. My serving was very consistent in the first set and Amar struggled a bit to find his usual rhythm. The second set was a lot closer as Amar’s well tuned tennis brain started to work out my weaknesses and he became a very threatening presence at the net. The scores would have got even closer if we had gone to a third. Amar embodies the fun and respectful spirit of the leagues and is a pleasure to spend a couple of hours with on a rainy Sunday morning."  -- David
