Player Comments:

  • "An absolute pleasure to meet and play Graham in perfect conditions for tennis. Graham was close on several occasions to securing the points he needed to put games on the score board and his serve out wide into the deuce court I found particularly difficult to return. I have no doubt that with more match experience Graham will soon be winning matches in the league. The very best of luck with your remaining games and let's play again soon."  -- Paul
