Player Comments:

  • "Great match played over nearly 3 hours at 2 venues/surfaces due to rain (switched from hard court to artificial clay). And in the end Jim was basically beaten by a banana!! Being 1-4 down in final set and lacking energy, I was staring defeat in the face.. but Jim kindly gave me half his banana, which seemingly gave me the power to win the next 5 games and the match! Either way my best tennis seemed to come up right up the end... Some quality rallies, attack and defence coming into play. Great tactics and net play from Jim esp. in 2nd set. Look forward to the rematch!"  -- Alex
