Player Comments:

  • "Another close match against David. The 1st set was poor quality from both of us. I just edged it on a tie break. The 2nd set was much better tennis with long rallies. After losing the 2nd set to some great backhand winners from David we decided to play a championship tie break due to time constraints. Again I just about edged it. Well played David, looking forward to our next battle "  -- Nav

Reveal CommentTom Courtenay-Evans bt David Renney (Sep 18) 6-4, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "A match of two halves. We started on the astro at Leamington Tennis club on Thursday evening and played out a very hard fought first set. I just managed to edge it in the gloom before bad light stopped play. Malfunctioning flood lights meant that we reconvened for part 2 on Saturday afternoon at Victoria Park. I got off to a fast start and managed to maintain the momentum. We then played a very competitive 3rd set for fun and enjoyed a pleasant post-match beer in the Cricketer's. Great fun."  -- Tom
Reveal CommentEnrique Suarez bt Martin Durrant (Sep 17) 6-3, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "I really enjoyed playing against Martin. We had a very competitive match, specifically the second set where I had to bring my A game on. We had a 15 minutes long game which in the end was won by Martin sending a ball just in the line of the left corner. Looking forward to our next match Martin! "  -- Enrique

Reveal CommentEnrique Suarez bt Tom Courtenay-Evans (Sep 11) 6-4, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "It is always great to play against Tom, we had many rallies during the match. The first set started with a few serve brakes and was only defined at the very end. During the second set my accuracy at serving improved which I believe was key in winning the set. Looking forward to play against Tom soon!"  -- Enrique

Player Comments:

  • "The score doesn’t depicts the reality of the match, most of the games were very difficult to win and where many of them ended after various dueces. It was great to play against you David, looking forward to a next match against you!"  -- Enrique

Player Comments:

  • "Slight delay due to the rain however we managed to get it done. Rod started off strongly before i managed to pick up my game. An injury prevented Rod from firing on all cylinders but there is good improvement since we played last. Good luck for the rest of the matches."  -- James
Reveal CommentSimon Rutter bt Rod Bond (Sep 11) 7-5, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Always a pleasure to play Rod and this was another competitive match. First set was a tale of lost service games which eventually swung my way after a series of long deuce games. My consistency improved in the second set which was probably the difference between us. Great match, and good luck Rod!"  -- Simon
Reveal CommentHarpal Singh bt Oli Lorimer (Sep 4) 6-4, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "A tight match that could have gone either way. Many games were went to long deuces, with both of us of coming back from 0-40 down to force a deuce many a time during the match. I had a bit of luck on the day which helped me keep the edge. Overall it was an entertaining game with Oli. "  -- Harpal
Reveal CommentHarpal Singh bt Gabor Kovacs (Sep 1) 6-4, 4-6, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "An incredibly tough match that lasted almost 3 hours. Gabor with his speed chased down every ball and made me work for every point. I was quick out of the blocks and got an early break in the 1st set which I managed to hold throughout. 2nd set was Gabor's turn to get an early break, I tried desperately to break back but couldn't and Gabor manage to close it out, we had to wait for the lights to close out the 2nd set. 3rd set was a repeat of the first, I got an early break and manage to close out the match before the lights went. An extremely enjoyable match, looking forward to our next one."  -- Harpal
Reveal CommentHarpal Singh bt Simon Rutter (Aug 30) 6-2, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Great match with Simon, I was quick out of the block in the first set. 2nd set was much tougher staying on serve until 4-4 before I managed to break and gain the advantage. Simon has improved a lot since we last played, looking forward to our next match"  -- Harpal

Thanks Chris and good luck with the rest of your matches."  -- Andy
