Player Comments:

  • "A very tough match despite the scoreline. Jen returned and rallied very well, having me down 15-40 on serve first game of 2nd set. I had to focus to save the break points and win the game, and work hard to regain my focus after losing games on Jen's serve later in set. Hot work but great fun."  -- Robert
