Player Comments:

  • "Always a pleasure to play with Steve. He Always trying to put you in difficulty and tries to win the point and personally I appreciate that a lot on a player. Is not about keeping the ball into the court... anyway.. Steve couldn't play after we finish the second set due to his condition. He advise me to take the win. However I refuse. For me is important to enjoy the time on a tennis court and play some great tennis. Once again is not always about winning is more about playing and try your best. Get well Steve and for sure we shall see each other very soon on the court. Congratulations Pawel ( winner of the group) you are for sure the most entitled to win it as your tennis is great .

  • "Vlad has been playing really decent tennis keeping that ball on the court and trying to make me making more errors, which worked well! First two sets very close. In the last one Vlad run out of stamina I guess as with new Crawley courts he spends hours daily practising :) which works! So keep up a good work mate and looking forward to another battle!

Thankfully I’ve managed to hang on and Jame’s level eventually dropped abit, and with a bit of luck I’ve managed to finish that match in my favour. Great fun as always playing against James.

Player Comments:

  • "What a game we had! I had a very slow start like always unfortunately ( probably I need more warm up) and more focus on the game. Anyway James smashed point after point in the first set and he won it easily and well deserved with 6-1. I start serving well in the second set and bring some constancy in my game and managed to win the second one with 6-4. Third set was very balanced until 3-4 when James break my serve and was up 5-3! Wheather try to ruin our game with some showers. Managed to come back to 5-5 with some great services which helped me today massively on key points even managing to save two Match points. I break James service and manage to serve some aces on the last game for a 7-5 win! Is always a pleasure to play with James "  -- Catalin
