Player Comments:

  • "The scoreline really wasn't indicative of ability and how this match could have been. Dimitri was carrying an injury which meant that he couldn't hit many of the shots on his forehand. I have met another player that I will have many matches with in the future. Really hope those injuries heal up soon Dimitri and catch up soon. "  -- Winston

The final set probably took as long as the first two sets combined. Game 3 in the final set was probably around 20 minutes. Great playing Ryan again and look forward to our next match. "  -- Winston

Player Comments:

  • "We played this match with some remnants of Storm Franklin winds at Lee Valley which occasionally made things a bit tricky for both of us. There were quite a lot of deuce games, and some longs one at that, not reflected by the score in the second set. It was generally a pretty tough match and on another day the score could be very different. Thanks for the game Adam."  -- Paul
Reveal CommentPaul Malone bt Pauls Ilzins (Feb 12) 6-3, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "This was Pauls’ first match at Lee Valley and it wasn’t so much a baptism by fire, but a baptism by wind. The Lee Valley wind tunnel was in full effect and it made it very tricky for both of us but I just managed to get the measure of it quicker. There were quite a few deuce games and I think in decent weather conditions it would have been a very different match. Thanks for the game Pauls."  -- Paul

Player Comments:

  • "The first day I went to the wrong place and when I eventually got to the right one, Tamzin came out the blocks quickly her killer forehands giving her the edge in the first set to win it. At 5-4 up when time elapsed we had to continue on the last day of the round by which time my serve had returned, giving me an edge which I used to clinch the 2nd set and win the third. Terrific game, all sets very close, reallly enjoyed it and look forward to a rematch! "  -- Luke

Player Comments:

  • "It started out perfect weather for tennis with no sun or wind, I managed to get out the blocks quickest and at the vital moment in the second half the sun came out to blind Kit for the first set! Second set and almost all the games went to juice and I edged slightly more of them. Great game and Kit’s a top man, look forward to rematches!"  -- Luke

Reveal CommentLuke Newman bt Kurt Williams (Mar 20) 6-3, 3-6, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Real quality set with not a lot in it. I got an abnormal amount of first serves in which was the difference, play suspended due to rain. When we returned Kurt got on top on the second set and I couldn't wrestle it back. Third set and a mixture of a broken string (forcing an unhelpful change of racket) and my first serve returning meant that I had a strong advantage which I made full use of! Really good game, thanks Kurt and best of luck with the rest."  -- Luke

Player Comments:

  • "This was a highly competitive match played on a beautiful morning! Carly was edging ahead in the first set and I couldn't quite keep up, and in the second stormed to a 4-1 lead which had me in trouble. Having to throw hell to leather and play some of my best tennis of the round, I managed to come back and win a number of straight games in a row to pip the second set. Thoroughly enjoyable and a shame that we will not get to finish due to Carly's injury, hope it recovers well and look forward to a rematch!"  -- Luke
Reveal CommentLuke Newman bt Jack Alexander (Mar 18) 6-1, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Whilst it took a while for Jack to get in the game the last game and second set were very competitive. Strong serves and several winners meant the second set probably swung on a few key moments. A god game and a different challenge - I’ll look forward to playing again once you’ve had a few more games under your belt! Al the best with the rest Jack "  -- Luke

Reveal CommentLuke Newman bt John Sanfey (Mar 7) 1-6, 7-5, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "Lovely sunny day, although the wind was at times ferocious. John was dominant in the first set and went 5-2 up in the second, however I played with more freedom and clawed my way back to 5-5, working out the wind (eventually) to make it a much more even game. The third set was anyone's game and poked my head in front early doors and just about hung on. John's killer forehand was certainly impeded but a very tight match throughout. Good game John and all the best with the rest of your matches."  -- Luke
