Collapse AllKingston Parks Singles - Round 4 | Thursday 18 April 2019 to Wednesday 12 June 2019 (Midpoint: Wednesday 15 May 2019)
Sometimes the sun shone and gave the players a heat test, and sometimes the wind howled and the rain poured. And that is British tennis in a nutshell (no play at Queen's as we write!). But taken as a whole, this was a very nice round with nearly 60% of the matches played. Please do pass on the word if you can and we hope to have you playing again next time!
Siddhartha and James were both group winners from last round but who would top the group this time? Enter Neil making a triumphant return to the league and winning five matches in straight sets. With James sidelined after three matches that left Siddhartha, from our reigning champs, in the mix for the runner up spot. In the end he had to make do with bronze as Alex swept in to win silver. Well done to everyone and of course to Neil for his excellent group win.

Match of the Group:Neil Kapoor bt Juan Menacho (Jun 5) 6-4, 7-5
A big group but with Maxine picking up an injury and Leila not getting started, it settled down to a tough battle between the remaining seven. No one found it easy to pull clear though Cristian, the eventual winner, shared with Sebastian the most number of match victories. In fact, Sebastian got the better of Cristian in their heat-challenged three-setter, but bonus points came to Cristian's rescue allowing him to finish the round two points clear. Runner-up Yo matched Cristian on points but lost their three setter and with it the chance to top the group. Really exciting group!
