Player Comments:

  • "Really enjoyed meeting - and playing - Kartik on a lovely evening in Highbury 👍 Unfortunately Kartik's strings broke 5 minutes in 😭 and his replacement racket was much more loosely strung, which caused chaos with rhythm and control.

Reveal CommentAndre McClean bt Alex Hicks (Jun 17) 6-0, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Tighter than the score suggests, I benefited from the fact that Alex had played a doubles match immediately beforehand. The conditions were rather different from our first three games, which were played in some sort of flood plain. This time, Court 10 gave a very high bounce and I was able to come to the net and poke away a few volleys. I got lucky on quite a few of my own lobs, which managed to nick the line. A tough but fun game, with skulduggery on both sides, including moon balls from Alex and daisy cutters from me! Really enjoyed getting this one played. Thanks for the game, Alex 👍" Andre

The 2nd set started with three very hard fought games that went many times back to deuce. After leading 4:0, momentum shifted again and Dan almost made the 4:4, but I was lucky enough to close the set 6:3. The 3rd set was played the next day, we had great rallies again and Dan broke me early in the set. At 5:4 he was serving for the match and had two match points at 40:15. I somehow defended and managed to break him, hold my serve and after 5 match points win the set 7:5. Dan was a great opponent! So much fun to play! This was definitely not our last match!
