The league is:

  • For everybody!

  • "Good match and long rallies as is usually case against Chris...a few racket malfunctions did not help Chris' cause and I was happy to hold my serve throughout the match to pull ahead...we stayed on serve for the first 10 games, which I rather unusual for the K&B League "  -- David
Reveal CommentTimothy Jones bt Christopher Bunstead (Apr 13) 6-0, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "This was Chris's first match back after a really nasty injury to his playing hand, and this seemed to have at least some impact on a match where neither of us ever particularly got into our stride. As the match went on the rallies got longer and the games were tight - and had it not been for Chris breaking a string at the end of the second set it might well have gone to a decider."  -- Timothy
Reveal CommentDavid Jovic bt Jamie Feldman (Apr 10) 6-0, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Welcome to Group 1! David the powerhouse giving me a bit of a lesson as to the quality of tennis that I have to keep to if I want to keep my place in the top Group. The first set was over in a flash, with David consistently hitting body serve after body serve, shortly followed by winner after winner. I managed to give him a bit of a fright in the second set (or that may have been my dog, Rupert, who came along for moral support) but in the end, David was simply too good. I look forward to our next, hopefully more competitive, game"  -- Jamie
Reveal CommentTimothy Jones bt Jamie Feldman (Apr 6) 7-5, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "A really enjoyable match against Jamie, who along with Simon are very welcome additions to the competitiveness of Group 1. From my perspective the first set was all about hanging in there as Jamie hit repeated winners, punishing anything falling remotely short. I was fortunate to make it back from 5-2 down, and perhaps on an evening with fewer distractions from neighbouring courts and astro pitches I would have found myself a set down. The second set was an equally close affair (not done justice by the scoreline), with the final game alone lasting for over ten minutes, and I was relieved to stumble over the finishing line. We'll have to make sure to book for three hours next time!"  -- Timothy
Reveal CommentTimothy Jones bt Simon Wood (Mar 29) 6-2, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "A really enjoyable tussle against Simon, and one where the scoreline doesn't do justice to the competitiveness of the match. There were many times when I was just clinging on against Simon's powerful groundstrokes, and if it weren't for the ridiculous number of net-cords that went my way then the outcome would have been very different. Perhaps the most significant of these was when I was break point down in the second set, and had my shot fallen my side of the tape, Simon would have had a commanding 3-1 lead. I can only apologise again and hope that the luck is a bit more balanced next time!"  -- Timothy

The terraces were packed with fans for a beautifully clear evening that even J.M.W. Turner would have struggled to capture on canvas such was the evening's majesty! The match was engrossing, to the extent that at one point a child pitch invader stood in the corner just to be close to his tennising heroes and act for 10 minutes as ball boy... before he realised we weren't Andre Agassi and Justine Henin and walked off! Viv's groundstrokes are as consistent as the seasons and she has an unnerving habit of finding the lines which brought the fans into delirium on more than one occasion. Well played Viv."  -- Edward

The flowers were out, the birds were singing and the buzz of Kennington Park Road could be heard in the background. Add this to a mouthwatering game of tennis and it is no wonder that Kennington Park welcomed a record number of spectators to this eagerly anticipated clash of titans as the Saturday Telegraph Sports section billed this match. Forget Federer Vs Nadal (we've been there and got the t-shirt), this was the match of the weekend.

Player Comments:

  • "The crowds flocked to Kennington Park in their thousands to come and watch some quality tennis on what was easily the hottest day of the year so far. The tennis on display from Sam and myself matched the conditions as some sizzling serves were served, some too-hot-to-handle forehands were hit and scorching backhands were sliced. Sam's athleticism is something fans and pundits marvelled at, every time the ball dropped short he resembled a hungry wildebeest rampaging across the Serengeti to attack the ball and slam a winner past his hapless opponent. His return is another weapon as he broke my serve more times than Lance Armstrong broke anti-doping rules! The fans left knowing they'd witnessed one of sports great matches, well played."  -- Edward

Well with the amount of effort poured into this game Ghandi's socks would have been well and truly knocked off! Kennington Park was packed to the rafters as the fans were treated to a spectacle so great it is rumoured that it could be seen from space. Thomas' serve is a weapon that strikes fear deep into his opponent's hearts as it spits up at you like an angry cobra that has missed its breakfast. Add this to his slice backhand that is both pleasing on the eye and , like Rob Brydon's impression of Ronnie Corbett, frighteningly accurate, it's no wonder that the pundits were heard purring at the spectacle on display!

  • "Kennington Park has seen many a tussle over the years, and today's match will go down in the history books as another of those tough battles. Chris has a background in squash, as evidenced by his rubber like wrists that exact insane amounts of spin and angles on the ball that I though only existed in trigonometry lessons at school. Marry this with his cobra like enthusiasm to get to the net, seriously, he's quicker out of the blocks than Usain Bolt, and we are left with a formidable opponent. The fans flocked to Kennington Park and enjoyed themselves on a balmy South London night. They left enthused and marvelling at the spectacle of tennis they had witnessed with winners, aces and lobs a plenty. Great game, well played."  -- Edward

Player Comments:

  • "It seems to me that I need to start booking three-hour slots in this round ... A very tight and enjoyable game with Michael so far; with a number of long and probing rallies; both serves broken and held; heavy and consistent hitting ... a perfect start to the w/end! At the moment, you couldn't slip a cigarette paper between us ..."  -- Christopher
  • "The score in the final set doesn't reflect how close this contest was, fight fans ... as always it hung on two key shots! One was a lob that I was surprised beat Michael and caught the bassline, the other was (although I say it myself!) a rather fine passing shot. Great match-up!," Christopher

Player Comments:

  • "It was great to meet and play against Christopher. The match was much closer than the scoreline suggests with lots of good, long rallies and several games which Chris could and probably should have won but I somehow ground out. Afterwards Chris schooled me in a number of drills which was fun. Paul"  -- Paul

Reveal CommentAdam Love bt Laura Sweet (Apr 20) 6-3, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A good match in excellent tennis conditions. Laura started well with her powerful double handed backhand and my lack of consistency earning her an early lead. However as the set wore on my spinny shots started to take effect and I was able to build some games to see it out 6-3. In the second set, Laura confessed she was thinking about her dinner by the midway point. A fun game and Laura was a lovely opponent."  -- Adam
Reveal CommentAdam Love bt Arthur Blair (Apr 20) 6-0, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Easily the most enjoyable game I've had in ages! Although always easy to say when you win. Two similar styles made for exciting, hard-running positive tennis. Big serves, big forehands, sneaky slices and a lot of net play. The score in the first set didn't reflect Arthur's commitment and he came back strongly at the start of the second. Deuce in game 5 at 3-1 Arthur was a crucial point. We had at least 8 goes with no one quite able to see it out. Eventually a net winner and long shot from Arthur made allowed me to break back. Although we both dropped games immediately after the momentum swung back my way and I was able see out the remaining games from 3-4 down. Great game, can't wait for the rematch!"  -- Adam

Reveal CommentAdam Love bt James Taylor (Apr 10) 6-0, 6-7, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A long, topsy-turvy match in which the scoreline didn't reflect the closeness of most games. The first set was fast paced with both of us playing for winners, with every game going close but with my luck holding incredibly. In the second James took an early 3-1 lead before our court time ran out. When we resumed, I found my rhythm more quickly and at 4-3 thought I was on for the second set. Wrong! James fought back and took us into an epic, nail biting tiebreak which he won 13-11 after what seemed like an eternity. At the start of the 3rd, with us both dropping serve, it looked like we might be in for a marathon. However with the pressure of tiebreak lifted, I started hitting more positively and was able to see out the match."  -- Adam

Reveal CommentAdam Love bt Elinor Wakefield (Apr 6) 6-4, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "A real game of two halves. The first set was cagey, tight with neither player really able to establish dominance. Although Elinor continued to play shots of great depth, I found my rhythm in the second, and my serve got going, which saw me take a 5-0 lead. But before I could see the set out, Elinor threatened a come back at 5-2 but I was able.to hold on to see out the match."  -- Adam
