Collapse AllIslington Women's Singles - Round 11 | Thursday 12 September 2019 to Wednesday 6 November 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 9 October 2019)

Another excellent round done and dusted, but that's not quite all the tennis for 2019 and we have one more, 2019 into 2020 round starting shortly. It's a special ten-week round to allow for the festivities and the shopping (that won't take long) and is the perfect antidote to the over-indulgence of the season. Do hope you can play!

Group Summary:

A great return to the league for Marcia who celebrates by taking the group win - all done without the drop of a set, let alone a match. Tara played one more match than Marcia, and that along with her excellent four wins made it quite tight at the top of the table and earns her a well deserved silver! Well played everyone!

  1. Marcia Mihotich 8.2 [W5] 10 WINNER
  2. Tara Cemlyn-Jones 10.2 [W4, L2] 8 RUNNER UP

Group Summary:

It may have been unfinished business, but Cath's match with Jane proved crucial in the end, providing the extra point that allowed Cath to overtake runner-up Chloe in the standings. In truth there were so many good wins in this group, and just a few bonus points floating around, that you were never quite sure who would make it to the top spot. In all respects, this is a very well-deserved group win for Cath!

Group Summary:

Even if one of her matches was unfortunately a walkover, Luisella played more and won more matches than anyone else in the group and that helped her earn an unassailable 13 points. But don't let that allow you think that it was an easy ride, just take a look at that fantastic three-setter against Maria-Sofia! Closest in the rankings, and earning silver, was Orla who had she managed to play a few more matches could have made it an even tighter finish!
