Player Comments:

  • "I always enjoy matches against Tom as it’s always a close game and topsy turvey affair. Tom stormed the first set, knocking me off my feet in double quick time. I got some rhythm into my game for the second set, and the third set was as close as it could be, on serve until the very final game. Excellent game, lots of fun and looking forward to the next one.

Player Comments:

  • "Scorcher in Burgess Park. I am still quite unsure how to handle Simon's unorthodox game but was able to pull it off this time somehow although Simon had his share of winners. First set could have really gone either way and I'm just delighted it did not go to 3 which would have been a struggle following my previous day's battle with Tom."  -- David

  • "A really good quality match against Tom, who was in the middle of an ambitious three-days-three-matches schedule. Both sets were tight affairs, each of us taking it turns to put together runs of games as the momentum swung forwards and backwards between us. Even had time to squeeze in a third set afterwards, which was equally competitive. Looking forward to our next match!"  -- Timothy

I edged into a 5-2 lead in the first set, but Simon suddenly broke into Sampras-esqe groundstrokes, knocking me off my feet, that I was unable to cope with and he deservedly won the first set. I tried to get on top of my game in the second and managed to get through that until the rain kicked in and we had to stop. To be continued on Tuesday at 9!"  -- Jamie

The (slightly dodgy) Larkhall park floodlights reluctantly flickered on, initiating and illuminating an impressive fightback. Nick's powerful forehand and precise volleying saved three match points over the next two games, bringing the score level at 5-5. Nick was on fire, Ed was rattled. Long rallies and tense moments defined the next two games, with Ed just managing to halt Nick's momentum and edge over the line, narrowly winning the set 7-5. An enjoyable match- thanks!"  -- Edward

  • "A match that was much closer than the scores suggested. I won an early break to go 2-0 up. However, Nick threatened to break back to make it 2-2, but I just held on. With Nick hitting some good passing shots when I came forward, I decided to retreat to the baseline which seemed to work. I saw out the rest of the set, despite several deuces. The second set saw Nick's serve misfire, and although he hit some nice forehands just lacked a bit of consistency. I've no doubt the next game will be much closer."  -- Adam

Mark breezed through the first set 6-1, with me struggling for rhythm and ideas. In the second, Mark was still making me run around the court with great variety and accuracy. However, I began to play a bit more tennis, attacking Mark's serve when the chance came. It finished 6-4 but could have gone either way. In the third, young legs began to tell. Whereas in the first I had been making the unforced errors, now this switched around. It finished 6-3 but it felt close throughout."  -- Adam

Player Comments:

  • "I did not deserve to win this match.... Laura has fantastic ground strokes and incredible consistency. I wonder if she is Andy Murray's sister: she hit a winner every single time she was heavily on the back foot. The first set was close, with robust rallying from the baseline, where I managed to break mid-set and hold for the remainder. In the second Laura rightly tore me apart. I served more double faults than I can count and showcased some truly awful net play. Credit to Laura, who maintained her consistency and hit sublime lobs on many occasions. By the third set we started to tire and minds drifted to what was for dinner. I scraped by pushing shots and was very possibly helped by our inability to remember the score mid-set. Thanks Laura"  -- Michael

In the second set she found her game, especially her ability to hold firm in rallies with some very penetrating, and deep top-spin – mixed in with some (I have to say) vicious finishing shots. All in all, a very enjoyable and even match ... On to the next one!"  -- Christopher

Reveal CommentMichael Chin bt Christopher Burkham (Jul 29) 6-3, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Having lost to Chris in a previous LTL round, I was keen for revenge. This time we clashed in windy conditions on the grass courts used for the Wimbledon qualifiers, with similarly robust baseline exchanges to last time. I raced to a 4-0 lead and a double break in the first set, though Chris went on to win the next 3 games by exploiting weak serving on my part. I managed to hold serve and steal a final break to close the set. The second set was tight. We both failed to consolidate some early breaks of serve, and I was down multiple break points when serving at 4-4. Fortunately I held on, and with luck managed to take the match through a couple shots of the frame being helped by the wind and divine intervention. A very enjoyable match again
  • "One win for Michael on the grass! A previous win to me on the hard court! All to play for ... If we meet in another group, I think we should settle this on the clay! Nevertheless ... two very closely fought matches!" -- Christopher

Reveal CommentElinor Wakefield bt John Macdonald (Aug 8) 7-6 (7-5), 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "A great, and close, match with some long rallies in the second set. John put up admirably with the tree overhanging one end of the court despite the fact the ball disappeared into its branches during his service toss."  -- Elinor
Reveal CommentMike Begent bt Dee Dinneen (Aug 8) 7-5, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Big match! A really tight couple of sets, with almost every game in the first set going to deuce multiple times. A slightly dodgy court gave both players a few wry bounces, but in the end I managed to find the lines enough to surpass Dee's epic running and some big returns. Really good fun!"  -- Mike
Reveal CommentMike Begent bt Elinor Wakefield (Aug 6) 6-3, 3-6, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "A match full of great, fun rallies, and interesting points. My serve was erratic as ever, a couple of aces mixes with several double faults. Elinor played very consistently, and kept the pressure on until the end, but as we rushed through the 3rd set to get done within 2hrs I held on for the win, but it could have gone the other way!"  -- Mike
Reveal CommentDee Dinneen bt John Macdonald (Aug 1) 6-4, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Tuesday evening saw the second meeting of John vs. Dee. Dee swiftly fell behind in the first set 1-4 and the match looked as though it would go the way of their first match (a comfortable win for John). However, a steam-roller come-back saw Dee win the first set 6-4 and go on to lead the second set 4-0. John delivered a number of aces to bring the second set back to 4-3, but Dee just about managed to hold on and finished the second set with a 6-3 win. -- A very enjoyable evening of tennis with some implausibly long rallies, looking forward to the third meeting.

Reveal CommentMike Begent bt John Macdonald (Jul 26) 6-4, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "In a bit of drizzle and a good deal of wind, that held the net horizontal at times, we had a really fun match up at Brockwell! With some strong service holds, mixed with games full of double faults by both players, consistency was, as ever, the enemy. As John's strong serve abated slightly in the second set, and despite some awful volley misses from me, including letting my racket fly out of my hand on one particularly ridiculous point, I managed to hold it together in the end. A great match to get the round started!"  -- Mike

Player Comments:

  • "A very fun match on a gorgeous evening at the top of Burgess Park. The first set was one of those genuine edge of the seat ones which could have gone to me or Magda. And I was sweating like mad in the second. Great game! Apologies Magda for hitting the ball at your head twice (accidentally!) between points - not great etiquette!"  -- James

Apart from the efforts of the court's cracks and bumps, this was a story of high concentration, long deep-shorter rallies and to-the-line shots in which the second set score belies the parity of the play.

Player Comments:

  • "The conclusion of the Wimb champ for another year, wasn't the end of top class tennis in Ldn. Just a day after the SW19 gates closed for the final time in 2017, Vauxhall Park played host to an epic. The match, contested by duos Rosie/James & David/Susannah went the distance, leaving everything on the uneven & at times, questionable court. R&J started the match brightly. Their teamwork & positioning, matched by their consistency on serve, was too much for a lethargic D&S. Within a flash R&J took the first set 6 - 1. The 2nd set was much more competitive, with D&S finally making a contest of it. The rallies were long, volleys sharp & the set, - even & decided via tie break. 3rd set 7-5 D&S, just"  -- David
