Player Comments:

  • "Brilliant 2 sets - so close - so much running and long rallies- both tired and pleased with how we played. The third set could never compete with the quality of the first two. Much closer than the score would suggest - but Jill's serve held up and Kathi's form was not as good as the previous week. Great match though. Very enjoyable."  -- Jill
