Collapse AllHighbury Fields Singles - Round 52 | Thursday 12 January 2017 to Wednesday 8 March 2017 (Midpoint: Wednesday 8 February 2017)

Following hot on the heels of our Christmas and New Year bonus round (short format matches, smaller groups) the first round proper of the New Year was soon in full swing. And an excellent round it was too with, despite some challenging weather, a very decent proportion of matches played. Thank you for all your efforts and thank you for helping to make these courts some of the most vibrant in the country. Between the mix-ins, the club team tennis, the coaching and the courses offered by Better and the borough's tennis development officer, we are spoilt for choice!

Group Summary:

The top group of Highbury Fields is consistently highly competitive and this time round was no exception. Kenny, Franck, Stuart and Mark and Daniel were all within 1 point of each other for the runner up spot, which eventually went to Kenny - however with 4 wins and bonus points, Darren gets the win by a margin of 4 points! Well played.

Player Comments:

  • "Another game of big momentum swings. With mark starting the quicker and playing the conditions a lot better, he run away with the 1st set and was 4-2 up in the 2nd before I held a service game. On this the momentum swung and I won 9 of the next 11 games and was 5-2 in the 3rd before mark saved 3 match points and managed to get it back to 5-5 dead on time. Good game and very good rallies especially considering the wind! "  -- Stuart

Player Comments:

  • "A fun game in the rain and wind with big swings in momentum. Both sets Franck started the quicker and was leading 3-0 in the first and 5-2 in the 2nd. Neither of us at our best, and was more playing the conditions rather than the opponent!"  -- Stuart
Reveal CommentDarren Turpin bt Stuart Broad (Feb 22) 7-6 (7-5), 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "This was an epic match with wild momentum swings. The result was in doubt right to the end, and with the winning stroke finally hit at gone 9pm, we were only able to complete the match because the Highbury Fields park keeper was unusually tardy turning off the lights. An unfinished match would have been a fairer result as Stuart was probably the better player tonight - he really should have taken the first set having led 5-1 and had set point chances at 5-2."  -- Darren

Player Comments:

  • "I really struggled to get to grips with Daniel's dogged defending (and also the indoor ITC courts) early on. Daniel was good value for his 5-2 lead in the first set, and had he managed to close it out I suspect the second set would have been very different. Fortunately for me I was able to turn things around and then ran away with the second set."  -- Darren

Group Summary:

A shame we didn't see a few more matches played in this group, particularly as the matches that did take place were very competitive affairs. Nigel and Neil's match would come first on the highlight reel for this group, a marathon encounter that could of gone either way but in the end it was Nigel who found that little bit extra to sneak through 6-4 in the third. This proved to be a top of the table clash as Nigel finishes on top ahead of Neil in second. Well played all!

Group Summary:

Played five, won five this looks like a straightforward round for Atanas but in fact that was anything but the case. Atanas' round was characterised by three set matches, with Thomas, Simon and Nick all forcing a deciding set in titantic tussles. Helen also tested Atanas' nerve in an epic first set tie-break which the champion just edged 9-7. Great stuff!

Group Summary:

Congratulations to Ireo who recorded a full house of wins to cross the line first in this round. The race for second place was much closer. Charles finishes with four wins to Julian's three and won their head to head but crucially Julian bagged himself a couple of points from three set losses and more importantly showed excellent scheduling skills to earn bonus points to leapfrog Charles into second!

Group Summary:

Caroline and Gabriel were involved in the marathon match of the group that took place over two days and was so long it troubled our scoring system. It finished 8-6 to Caroline in the third but you both deserve a big round of applause. It is Tom who takes home the trophy thanks to four straight wins and two bonus points, however Alexander made sure it wasn't all plain sailing winning a set to take their match to a deciding third.

Group Summary:

Fantastic to see all but one player earning their bonus points to keep us busy in the prize department - great effort everyone. Alex and Alan are obviously used to being at the top of the standings with a name at the start of the alphabet and they made sure it was no different this time round as they pulled themselves clear of the field. With six wins out of seven and perhaps that extra motivation from finishing second in the last two rounds it is Alex who comes through to take the gold by one point.

The title goes down to the wire as Marcus and Walter both finish on an impressive twelve points. Sometimes top of the table clashes don't live up to their billing but the head to head between the top two did on this occasion.

Group Summary:

James was the standout player in this round with four comfortable victories putting him in the driving seat. Jonathan added bonus points to his three wins to put pressure on James but James victory in their head to head sees off Jonathan's challenge this time round. A special mention to Wael who alongside Jonathan played the most matches in the group - good work!

Abi and I managed to claw back and serve out the set, and a similar second set followed. Lots of rallies, shot variety, running...very enjoyable game. Thanks both"  -- Patrick

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. Well play guys. "  -- Patrick

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
