Collapse AllKilburn Grange Park Singles - Round 5 | Thursday 15 June 2017 to Wednesday 9 August 2017 (Midpoint: Thursday 13 July 2017)

This was a competitive round with lots of 3-set matches and group wins that came down to who prevailed in the head-to-heads... and with many matches played in hot conditions. Maybe because of the heat - there were some scorching battles - we had a few more unplayed matches than last round, but none the less this is seriously good league tennis!

Group Summary:

It couldn't have been closer at the top of this group, with Thomas edging out Mark by virtue of winning their 3-set head to head... with Thomas losing a tight second set tiebreak 8-6 before going on to win the third set 6-4. In fact the group saw no fewer than five 3-set matches which shows how competitive it was, with lots of games going to deuce as well - great play everyone!

Group Summary:

A close group with only one point separating winner Alastair from runner-up Krzysiek, Alastair was helped points won in tight three-set losses and by earning his midway bonus points showing it pays to schedule your matches early! There were three walkovers unfortunately, but congratulations go to Stephen and Alastair, and to Antonio and Alastair for completing three-set matches on really hot days... great effort! Well done to winner Alastair, and commiserations to runner-up Krzysiek.

Reveal CommentStephen Hoffman bt Alastair Noble (Jul 2) 4-6, 6-1, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "A great match in warm, but just about manageable heat! In the 1st set me and Alastair seemed to be in a competition on not holding on to serve. The charitable explanation as Alastair put it to me is that we were both great returners! Towards the end of the set I caved in to Alastair's returns and he deservedly won the set. In the 2nd set I changed tactics by putting more spin on to my serves and groundstrokes and this had the desired effect as I won the second set, although given the length of the rallies and every point being an event it was closer than the scoreline suggested The first four games of the 3rd set went the way of the first with nobody holding on to serve. However, I held on to my serve somehow and then broke twice."  -- Stephen

Reveal CommentAntonio Messina bt Alastair Noble (Jun 17) 2-6, 6-3, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Wow, what a day! We have played with temperatures as high as 29°C today! I haven't actually beaten Alistair, the sun has. I simply took advantage of my Sicilian DNA and managed to stand up in the court and hold the racket for longer...it was rather survival of the fittest in the hot, I guess! Looking forward to a replay under fairer weather conditions"  -- Antonio

Group Summary:

It was close at the top in this group with 3 players tied on 8 points, with Luca winning due to his head to head results. The match commentaries refer to winning drop shots, powerful serves and great baseline rallies... so we've seen some good all-round tennis skills on display in this group. Well done to our champ Luca and well played everyone!
