Player Comments:

  • "Always a tough and balanced game against James! I start the game really well and solid and had 3-0 in the first set. After James played really well and won 7 games in a row! Somehow i managed to find some good shots and service and a]with an overall solid game i managed to turn the game around and won the last two sets . But way harder then the score suggest as James is a fighter and work for every single point! Until next time mate. Good luck for your remaining games"  -- Catalin

Player Comments:

  • "The first set flew by but things tightened up in a closely contested second and it really could have gone either way but for a couple of net cords in my favour. "  -- Chris
Reveal CommentChris Billington bt Neil Twelves (Jan 26) 6-1, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Neither of us have played a league match for a while so it was good to get the first one out of the way. The conditions didn't help though under the floodlights and in the rain. Regardless, it was an enjoyable match with quite a few deuce games so could have easily been a closer score."  -- Chris
Reveal CommentJames Burney bt Chris Coles (Jan 24) 6-0, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Unfortunate for Chris, he probably deserved to win a few games. He has strong groundstrokes but just lacked consistency and match practice."  -- James
