Collapse AllGreenhead Park, Huddersfield Singles - Round 17 | Thursday 13 February 2020 to Wednesday 8 April 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 11 March 2020)

We may have had to end the round early but there were still some great matches to look back on, enough we hope to keep the spirit of friendly, competitve tennis alive in the memory as we await our next chance to get back on court!

Group Summary:

It was such a shame this round was cut short before the 'blockbuster in the making' between Jesuseun and Gary could be finished! The result was especially important as they tied on points when the round was declared over. Without a completed head to head to decide the group we have to look to games won and lost per matches played, and Jesuseun finishes ahead on both counts. So he takes gold this time and Gary takes silver but very well played both.

  1. Jesuseun Jaiyesimi 10.1 [W2, UF1] 5 WINNER
