Reveal CommentAvery Jackson bt Nick Anthony (Jan 21) 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (7-3)

Player Comments:

  • "After a change of venue due to a frozen court Nick and Avery served up a thriller at Christchurch Park. Avery raced into a powerful 4-1 lead, and although Nick pinched 2 games, Avery held on take the set 6-3. In the second Nick missed a great chance for a 4-1 lead and Avery hit back to level at 3-3. But with backhand slices doing the damage Nick managed to pull away and take the set, also at 6-3. The final set was a story of Avery holding serve and a lead before Nick levelled with his own serve. The inevitable tie break was reached and again neck and neck at 3-3 it was Avery’s power and clever shot selection that sealed the breaker 7-3 and the match. Another great contest against a tough opponent. "  -- Nicholas
