Fortunately for me I was able to turn things around and then ran away with the second set."  -- Darren

I was staring defeat in the face down 5-2 in the second and a couple of match points, but I dug deep and threw in a bit of serve volley and from no where managed to level.

Matt and Joel stepped it up in the second set and stuck to their strategy. Abi served at 5-2 and I at 5-4 for the match, but Matt and Joel did very well to save two match points from 40-15. We got to a tiebreak and some great, tense, long points ended when Matt was serving at 5-6 to give us the win. Really good fun and could easily have got away from us in the second set.

Player Comments:

  • "Apart from the first couple of games, we were pretty well out played for the first half of the match by Adam and Stephen: pin point groundies and cunning volleys. Also aided by the fact we couldn't put a first serve in and quite often neither a second serve as well. Down 5-3 in the second and facing a couple of match points, we hustled our way back in and level it up. Riding on the momentum, we took an early couple of breaks and managed to ride it out when things tightened up again for the decider. Good match, thanks very much guys."  -- Jeffrey

A very tight first set saw the deciding moments after 4-4, with the momentum switching repeatedly: 4-4 0-40, Philip and Julian managed to come back to deny us the break; when it looked like Mouche and I couldn't overcome our disappointment for the missed opportunities, finding ourselves in a hole facing 3 consecutive set points down, Mouche stood up playing unbelievably solid tennis, returning everything that was thrown at her and eventually allowing me to close the point at the net. After denying 7 break points opportunities, we broke in the next game and held to seal the first set. Interesting second set too, but I ran out of characters.Thanks"  -- Salvatore
