Reveal CommentAntoine Bardin bt Billy Howitt (Aug 1) 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Really enjoyed the match. The court was slippery which was tricky in the first set which caused an unfortunate slip from Billy resulting in a brused knee. As the court dried up some really nice points started to appear. My forehand was realiable enough today to come out on top. Looking forward to playing again Billy."  -- Antoine
Reveal CommentSiddhartha Kunzru bt Antoine Bardin (Jul 24) 4-6, 6-4, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Quite a topsy-turvy match with frequent changes in momentum. Don’t think either of us were playing at our best - quite a few errors from both ends punctuated with some great winners. Thanks Antoine for the game!"  -- Siddhartha
Reveal CommentSiddhartha Kunzru v Billy Howitt (Jul 17) 6-7 (6-8), 4-1 TBC

Player Comments:

  • "Really enjoyable game with Billy - both of us played with an aggressive style with plenty of winners and long energy-sapping rallies. I had my nose in front for most of the 1st set but then Billy pulled off a great Houdini act to save 6 set points and finally take the set to a tie break which he won after being down 2-6! I had a good start in the 2nd set and was leading 4-1 when we ran out of time due to the 90 min first set.. TBC.."  -- Siddhartha
Reveal CommentSiddhartha Kunzru bt Alex Hunt (Jul 14) 6-3, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "As always, an enjoyable match against Alex. 1st was relatively close with some really good exchanges, I managed to get a lead and close it out at 6-3. In the 2nd set I got an early lead and found my range which helped me close out the match. Thanks Alex for the game."  -- Siddhartha
Reveal CommentAlexandru Tataru bt Alex Hunt (Jul 7) 6-1, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A few rain drops 10 minutes before the match started but luckily that was it and we could play. Alex wasn't at his best today I reckon but still we had some long exhausting rallies. His unforced errors gave me the edge today. The score is a bit severe as Ales put up a good fight... we went to deuce a lot of times but he missed in the key moments. Nice meeting you Alex and good luck in the next matches. "  -- Alexandru

Reveal CommentAlexandru Tataru bt Siddhartha Kunzru (Jun 26) 6-4, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "I knew it was going to be tough against Sid and it wasn't easy. I really had to stay focused as Sid proved to be very dangerous. Even if I had a 5-0 lead in the first set, Sid managed to cut down on his unforced, played more carefully and came back to 5-4. In the end I managed to hold my serve somehow and get the set. In the second set history repeated it in a way... and even though I could see the finish line Sid made it really tricky for me to go past it. Really enjoyable match with long rallies, a lot of errors and winners (most of them from Sid's part)."  -- Alexandru
Reveal CommentBilly Howitt bt Alexandru Tataru (Jun 23) 6-2, 4-6, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Long and tiring match for both of us played on a hot day. Billy started strong with a 3-0 lead, I managed to get closer to 3-2 but again I lost my serve. To finish the 1st set in style Billy thought it would be nice to serve an ace! The best moment for it! In the second set I started leading and Billy was pushing to come back. I was lucky.. as Billy made a few unforced in the last game and lost his serve. There was no more time to play a 3rd.. and both of us were exhausted... A fun game overall with both players trying to hold their ground and push the other to the limit. To be continued..."  -- Alexandru
  • "Great to finish off our match from a few weeks back, some great shots made by both and some hit & miss net play! Some great exchanges from the baseline this time - hope to play with you again soon mate!" -- Billy
Reveal CommentAlexandru Tataru bt David Dyson (Jun 22) 6-0, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Another match with David and he really impressed me. Comparing with last time, he played much much better. Even if the score is a bit dramatic we had many beautiful and long rallies. I must have had a good day as I was not missing much and David helped as well with his unforced errors. David deserved more from this match but it wasn't to be today. "  -- Alexandru
Reveal CommentAlexandru Tataru bt Antoine Bardin (Jun 19) 6-4, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Match played under the clouds threat.. Luckily it didn't rain and we could finish our match. Antoine started strongly and was really close to take the 1st set. Unfortunately for him a few mistakes turned the tide and somehow I managed to win it. In the second, Antoine made a lot more errors which helped my cause. Nice playing again with you Antoine. "  -- Alexandru
Reveal CommentSiddhartha Kunzru bt David Dyson (Jun 19) 6-0, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Really enjoyable game with David to kickstart the league. I got off the blocks fast and won the 1st set relatively easily but then David found his groove in the 2nd set and hit some amazing winners. Unfortunately david’s serve let him down today which gave me the upper hand in the rallies else it would have been a much closer score. It was a pleasure to meet you David and I wish you all the best for remaining matches in the league."  -- Siddhartha

In the Second set Steve reduced errors and we battled game to game until tie break. There have been several close games and 3 match points canceled by Steve that has finally been able to close the tie break on his favour. We played a super tie break and luckily it went my way!
