Player Comments:

  • "Another 3 setter, played over two separate sessions. David showed good grit and determination to up his level and take the second set to force us to return for a decider. The 3rd set was fast paced, with some heavy hitting baseline exchanges but shorter games and not a lot between us. Good fun as always mate - best of luck in the rest of your games. "  -- Nick

Player Comments:

  • "Once again a really tough match. The first set of 6-1 to David was extremely hard fought and the second set was even harder with Manuel just clinging it in the tie break. The final tie break could of gone either way but Manuel made unforced errors at critical times. "  -- David
Reveal CommentNick Jones bt Rafael De Lima (Sep 17) 6-1, 5-7, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "A great match played over two separate days. From the off Raf was a little slower to get that big serve firing which just gave me the confidence to take risks and go for some bigger returns. The second set was completely different to the first, Raf served and returned well and hit some some cracking big backhands under pressure. Despite being 5-4 down Raf played exceptionally to take the next 3 games and the set with me hardly winning a point. We started the 3rd set tussle with the clock against us but I just managed to get the all important break to leave things at 3-1. When we resumed I think Raf was a bit slower to start again and just ran out of runway. Great game though with really enjoyable rallies. Cheers Raf! "  -- Nick
Reveal CommentManuel Fernandez Ramon bt David Anyinsah (Sep 14) 6-1, 7-6 (8-6)

Player Comments:

  • "I started the first set a bit more consistent than David and that was reflected on the points. Second set started the same 3 - 0 but David had a great come back and getting more comfortable on the court the game resulting 3 -3. Second half of the second set developed by more rallies and runs across the court. Tiebreak carried on the same dynamic but managed to steal a couple of consecutive points to win. Thanks for the game David."  -- Manuel
Reveal CommentDavid Winston bt David Anyinsah (Sep 12) 6-1, 4-6, [10-7]

Player Comments:

  • "Although the first set was 6-1 it was very hard thought with virtually every game going to duce. The second set was also tough but a few games was quite short. Both players were quite steady and consistent but Winston just managed to edge out Anyinash in the tie-break. At times this match was a real war of attrition with Anyinash have to hit 5 smashes to win a point. Is that a RECORD!!!! "  -- David
Reveal CommentNick Jones bt Nicky Morgan (Sep 10) 6-3, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "A really enjoyable match in a great location. The two courts in Aber are in the local park, nestled in the heart of the community with surrounding terrace houses and views of the valley and tree lined hills. Nicky is clearly a skilled tennis player and even though he's just getting back into playing more regularly, showed he has weapons and clever tactical play. I was perhaps a little more aggressive and maybe a bit sharper in the first set but Nicky responded well. The second was much tighter and Nicky had a chance to close out at 5-4 up in the second, his serve just faltering a little at key points. Looking forward to playing again and visiting again when the courts are resurfaced. Cheers for the game Nicky!"  -- Nick
Reveal CommentMark Thomas bt Rafael De Lima (Sep 10) 7-5, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A scoreline that doesn't tell the whole story. A few tight games, then Raf took control of the first set at 5-1, Raf's level dropped a bit as I finally found my game to claw the set back and take it 7-5. an early break in the second set was never going to be enough, but the crucial 4th game saw me claim the double break which allowed me to relax and swing freely towards the end. Thanks for the game Raf"  -- Mark
Reveal CommentNick Jones bt Mark Thomas (Sep 9) 7-6 (7-2), 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "We were both not quite up to our usual standard for this one for some reason. Mark was quick off the blocks in the first, serving and returning well (that damn slice forehand!) It wasn't until I found myself 5-1 down that I woke up a bit and started to find better shots of my own. I think Mark may have suffered a strain/injury when pushing off somewhere around 5-5 which hindered his ability to move and play to his usual high standard. It was very noticeable in the second set as more shots were hit long or wide after being out of position. A pity as I know Mark is pretty much unbeatable when on top form. Cheers for the game though bud and have a great holiday! "  -- Nick
Reveal CommentDavid Winston bt Nicky Morgan (Sep 3) 6-3, 1-6, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Unbelievably difficult match. Nick has either a severe slice or massive topspin forehand. Adapting to the very different shots was very difficult."  -- David
Reveal CommentMark Thomas bt David Anyinsah (Sep 3) 4-6, 6-4, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Another epic for David and I. There must have been 15 service breaks in total (and even more service lets!) with David taking the crucial break in the first. I hung on in the second before getting a break at 4-5, then the third set is a blur but I managed to break at 4-5 again to seal the win. Thanks again David, let’s play a tiebreak third set next time! "  -- Mark
