Reveal CommentJustin Kenny bt Martin Durrant (Mar 21) 4-6, 6-0, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Martin played a ver clever game in the first set and his cross-court backhand slice was often pulling me out wide, exposing the line. In the next two sets, I had to change my strategy and use deep slices and pressure on his forehand to create opportunities. A great competitive match that was very enjoyable."  -- Justin

Player Comments:

  • "Great match with Ali, first set was tight with almost every game going into deuce. Second set Ali started well and races to a 5-2 lead. I held on and manage to come back to make 6-6 and squeeze past in the tie break 7-5. Well play Ali"  -- Harpal

Match of the Group:

Reveal CommentMartin Durrant bt Harpal Singh (Mar 10) 4-6, 7-6 (7-5), 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "3 hour match played over 2 days. To be honest, if it wasn't for the enforced break, Harpal would likely have won in 2 sets. However, we reconvened at 4-6, 6-5 and I managed to nick the second set in a tie-break. In the 3rd set the conditions favoured my game - bright and windy and I quickly went 3-0 up. Thanks for the game Harpal, it was a great pleasure."  -- Martin
Reveal CommentEnrique Suarez bt Tom Courtenay-Evans (Mar 5) 6-1, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Difficult match in some thought windy conditions. It is always a pleasure to play against Tom who has a solid game plan and quite reliable shots. I was able to hold my serve fairly well during the match, and the only time I was broken I got it back at the very next game (match could have been very different if not braking back at that moment). Looking forward to play against Tom soon! "  -- Enrique

Player Comments:

  • "First time playing against Ali, I did quite enjoy it! Ali has a solid first serve and fairly good serve returns. I’m sure he will only get tougher to beat in the future. "  -- Enrique
Reveal CommentNav Aulkh bt Tom Courtenay-Evans (Mar 3) 6-1, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "I was lucky today as Tom didn't play his best on the hard surface at VP. I was all set for previous patterns of play where it was a tight scoreline. Unfortunately Tom made afew too many unforced mistakes today and handed me the game. Looking forward to our benchmark of play on our next match. "  -- Nav

Player Comments:

  • "The score is a bit flattering in this one, there were some tight games and a lot of duces but I managed to keep ahead most of the time and come out on top."  -- Harpal
Reveal CommentEnrique Suarez bt Martin Durrant (Feb 22) 6-1, 7-6 (7-2)

Player Comments:

  • "It is always nice to play against Martin at LLTSC. I managed to break early Martin in the first set and managed to set the pace from the start. However, the second set was another story, Martin level up his game and broke my serve twice; at 5-4 down I was able to brake back and hold my following serve with a pair of aces. Fortunately, my serve helped me through the tie-brake. Thanks Martin for such a thrilling match!"  -- Enrique
Reveal CommentTom Courtenay-Evans bt Darin Crosby (Feb 19) 6-1, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "We did well to get a game in on a wet and windy Saturday and after clearing the court from the aftermath of Storm Eunice we didn't really need a warm up. Darin has improved a lot since we last played a couple of years ago and his whipped crosscourt forehand is a great shot. Look forward to playing again in more benign conditions."  -- Tom
Reveal CommentMartin Durrant bt Tom Courtenay-Evans (Feb 17) 1-6, 6-3, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Epic. Tom battered me in the first set. 2nd and 3rd sets nearly every game went to deuce - really, nothing to choose between us."  -- Martin
Reveal CommentNav Aulkh bt Alastair Wood (Feb 17) 6-0, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "After playing Alastair in numerous friendly sets this was our first league match. Alastair's forehand continues to improve with added speed and depth. The first set we had numerous rallies and Ali had his opportunities but couldn't find the finishing shot. In the second set his first serve percentage was higher and a number of games went to deuce. So the score line could have been alot closer in the final set. Well played Ali, with another year of improving I'm sure you'll make those final finishing shots."  -- Nav

  • "First time playing Darin and it was an enjoyable encounter. The 1st set we have afew rallies but I was more consistent. The 2nd set Darin cane out fighting with some awesome cross court passing shorts. I managed to get through the set. Well played Darin looking forward to our next match."  -- Nav

Reveal CommentEnrique Suarez bt Harpal Singh (Jan 31) 6-4, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Great match! It was my first time playing against Harpal on a singles match and I would be thrilled to play against him again. It started with me losing my serve in the first game and was able to get it back at 4-3 in part due to Harpal doing some double faults. The second set was tighter, both of us serving more consistently than during the first set, I was able to break Harpal's serve at 5-4, 40-30, I believe I was a bit lucky with my return. Looking forward to play against you again mate!"  -- Enrique

Player Comments:

  • "Another beautiful day for tennis - blue skies and spring sunshine. I don't think either Neil or I would claim our tennis was as sparkling as the weather, but the frequent errors certainly contributed to an engaging match with plenty of ebb and flow. The final score flatters me - many of the games could have gone either way. It was a pleasure to see Neil again and I wish him all the best for the rest of his matches."  -- Martin

  • "A close fought match, which kept the tension going all the way to the end. After quite a tentative start, we both played well in the second and third sets, bringing the best out of each other and playing some great rallies and some lovely winning shots. A thoroughly enjoyable match, which I feel lucky to have won. I'm looking forward to playing Aida again in the next round. "  -- Tom
Reveal CommentAndy Silver bt Aida Nadar (Mar 5) 6-1, 4-6, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Great match with Aida with plenty of deuce games and some good long rallies. A bit chilly at the start but it soon warmed up - I got off to a fast start but Aida bounced back well to take the second set. The 4th game in the final set was the key one - I was 3-1 up and it could have gone either way, but in the end I nicked it then went on to take the set. Thanks for the match Aida - good luck."  -- Andy

  • "Really fun match in great conditions, managing to play the game before the sun fully set. The second set definitely felt closer than the score line suggests! Good luck in the rest of your matches and I’m sure we’ll play again in a future league!"  -- Neil
Reveal CommentAndy Silver bt Tom Dillon (Feb 27) 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Lovely day and a good match, with only a bit of sun-glare to blame for any wayward shots…. 😉. Most games were pretty close with a lot going to deuce and some decent rallies. In the end I edged it - mainly due to a slightly lower unforced error count…. Good luck with the rest of your matches Tom."  -- Andy
Reveal CommentAida Nadar bt Toby Barnard (Feb 23) 7-6 (7-5), 2-6, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "A three set saga at the mercy of storm Franklin that tested both our resolve numerous times. It was an intense yet enjoyable match against Toby, a player with impressive energy. He played fantastically in the second set, however I staged my comeback in the third set and after many deuces and a healthy handful of unforced errors on my part, I came out successful. Well played Toby, I look forward to playing again in the future. "  -- Aida

Player Comments:

  • "As ever, really good to play a match with Andy. We were very lucky with the weather- a beautiful afternoon. There was a pretty strong and gusty wind. A charitable observer might suggest that our frequent errors (on both sides) were due to that, but I suspect Andy and I would confess we were making them all on our own ! Either way we ended up with a close match. Good luck with the rest of your matches, Andy."  -- Martin

  • "Enjoyable match on a blustery day with most games much closer than the score suggests. To be fair, Toby had only 2-3hrs sleep the previous night which may have given me a slight advantage, but at no point did he actually fall asleep…. 😉! Good luck with the rest of your matches."  -- Andy
