Carl complained about the ball quality (even though they were new) so a different brand was used in the 2nd set - a bad tradesman blames his tools - though in this case it make it for a closer set coming right down to the final points in the tiebreak. 3rd set started after 2 hours of play (thankfully no one came to claim their court) & it became strain of fitness, focus & determination. This time, Carl was lucky enough to win - though the tide could have gone the other way. "  -- Carl

As a new pairing they are getting to know each others game and am sure when they play together a bit more they will get the results they deserve, especially with Simon's powerful serve and big forehand and Winnie's lovely double handed backhand. Good luck for the rest of your matches."  -- Alan
