Player Comments:

  • "This was a hard fought contest with the wind more than playing its part. Simon’s agility at the net and Caroline’s reliable ground strokes won the first set, but the return of the Beswick first serve brought the match to parity. The light was failing, and after some debate, we agreed to a match tie break. This was a very tense contest but won at the death with a crisp volley. Highbury tennis at its very best"  -- Alex
