Player Comments:

  • "A good competitive match on a fine day. Steve came out of the blocks fast and went 3-1 up, but I knuckled down and won the next 8 games, winning the first set 6-3 and going 3-0 up in the second. It then went 3-1, then 5-1, then 5-2, then 6-2. Some good rallies and close games, but ultimately I won the match with drop-shots and moving him around. Good luck getting through your remaining matches Steve & look forward to the next time. "  -- Rory

Reveal CommentRory Scott bt James Burney (Apr 20) 6-0, 4-6, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "James started very slowly in the 1st set and made a lot of errors and I won easily 6-0. In the second set, he was like a different player. He played very aggressively, especially on his serve, while maintaining consistency. He broke me twice early in the 2nd set and nearly went 4-1 up, but I got it back to 3-2. Then it continued with serve and he won 6-4, having won a couple of long games on his serve. I took an early lead in the final set, going 5-1 up after winning 2 marathon games on his serve. Then despite me coming up with good first serves, he broke back & then held serve. There was then pressure on me to hold serve at 5-3 up, which thankfully I did. A great match thanks James and good luck with your remaining matches. "  -- Rory
Reveal CommentRory Scott bt Peter Voice (Apr 19) 6-1, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "A nice friendly match. Peter won his first service game of the match after a couple of errors from me and culminating in a long rally, which he won. He was perhaps a bit unlucky not to win any further games, as there were a few games that went to deuce. Good luck in your remaining matches Peter. "  -- Rory
Reveal CommentRory Scott bt Lee Keeping (Apr 18) 6-4, 0-6, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "An up & down match with some drama. In the 1st set, Lee took an early lead going 4-2 up but I clawed it back to win 6-4. Lee went 3-0 up in the 2nd set after 3 close games. However at the end of the 3rd game my string broke. Lee kindly offered me his spare racket so we carried on. He proceeded to win the next 3 games easily winning the set 6-0. I then asked him would he mind if I tried to get my other racket, which was with restringer Garry Bugler. Lee very graciously agreed. I called Garry who kindly agreed to drop the racket over in 15 minutes which he did & Lee very patiently waited. We had to change court, as the original booking ran out. We carried on & again Lee forged ahead leading 5-3, but I hung in & won 7-5. Unlucky Lee & thanks. "  -- Rory
