Player Comments:

  • "We were going toe to toe until unfortunately Tyrone injured his back. I can't remember if it was 3-2 or 4-2 at that point, but it was clear he could no longer run for my shots as he was in the opening games. At 5-2, Tyrone had no choice but to stop. Hopefully he recovers quickly. A shame we couldn't have played it out. I think it would have been close."  -- David
Reveal CommentAvery Jackson bt MARIUS MALINESCU (Jun 3) 6-2, 5-7, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Another enjoyable match played in good spirit in blistering heat at Christchurch park. A tough first setter with both players hitting and serving well. The second and third sets was keenly contested and could have gone either way. "  -- Avery

Player Comments:

  • "It's been a while but another great match against Jamie. After feeling quite comfortable for the first Jamie upped his game and took the second. The effort in the second may have taken its toll as I went on to take the third. Match highlights were the double cramp jump and Jamie's crazy trick shot. I expect at least one tweener at our next meet.... ooh and looking forward to seeing your television debut!!! Always a pleasure Jamie."  -- Zelma
Reveal CommentMark Scott bt Harrison Lockwood (Jun 4) 6-4, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Perfect conditions at ccp. First time for Harry, who started a bit tentatively, but soon got into it. At 4-4, the set could have gone either way, but i took it. Harry was 2-0 up in the 2nd set, but i dug in and a key point at 2-2, saw me retrieving a low ball, turning it into a cross court winner. A hard fought battle im happy to have won. Thanks for the match Harry."  -- Mark
  • "Great match with Mark at Christchurch Park. After Mark raced into a 3-0 lead, the first set became very close and the second started in a similar manner up until a great shot from Mark turned the tide at 2-2. His experience and consistency eventually told and resulted in a deserved win. Best of luck in the remaining fixtures." -- Harrison
