We had some good rallies. I think it just boiled down to me serving a little better and making a few less errors. Other than that there was not much in it all. Thanks Steve for being a wonderful host and I look to a rematch soon. "  -- Dav

Player Comments:

  • "Dav and I had a really close encounter today and after the warm up and losing the first two games of the first set very quickly, I was massively concerned that I was about to receive a 6-0, 6-0 defeat as Dav was 'on it' in every department of his game. Thankfully for me, I managed to get going and definitely benefitted from some luck at times. Dav hits the ball so well and has confidence to place the ball with purpose with almost every shot. I had to rely on my engine and a bit of good fortune. We had a really close first set and then the second I manged to get ahead and hang on to see it out. In the 3rd, Dav relaxed and his game came back into its own to see him take it on the tie breaker. A great encounter & I hope we play again!"  -- EDWARD

Player Comments:

  • "Today, Lucy and I both had an unusually early start to the day to play at Vicki Park, in glorious sunshine yet again. We both have a similar game and enjoyed some good rallies throughout. Having taken the first set quite comfortably, Lucy switched it up and started really taking control of the match, getting everything back with consistency and really pushing me - in fact, she was really unfortunate not to win the second set 6-3. I managed to get back into it and at 6-6, we went into the tie breaker and I just managed to limp across the line. Phew! We had some really long and tactical rallies, waiting for the errors from each other. Lucy plays a really nice game and it was enjoyable to play. Good luck with the rest of your matches!"  -- EDWARD

  • "I have had a lesson today from Darius. He seemed to have great consistency and assured shots in every department of the game. He was coming into the net straight from the serve, which I didn't know what to do about. He has a great first serve and a reliable second serve too. Great touch on drop shots, passing shots, lobs, volleys. Nothing phased him. I have to hold my hands up today and just applaud. I gave it everything, but it wasn't enough. The weather was perfect, the clay court at Oadby is a delight to play on and all in all, you just have to acknowledge that you got smashed by the better player sometimes 👌🙂 Hopefully we can play again soon buddy, but good luck with the rest of your games 👍"  -- EDWARD
Reveal CommentEDWARD MORGAN bt Dean Norwood (Jul 9) 6-0, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "It was an absolute pleasure to play Dean and to play at Roundhill Tennis Club. The courts are situated in the heart of Evington, yet it's so peaceful, it was as if we were playing our match on a village green in leafy Leicestershire. Both Dean and I struggled to find our rhythm early on and although the score doesn't reflect it, we had plenty of games that took an age to complete. Dean came back strong in the second set and very nearly made it 3-3 on my serve, but luckily for me it went 4-2 up and managed to get across the line thereafter. In the third (friendly) set, Dean started dominating and played his best tennis of the night. Hopefully we can meet up again for a match soon Dean, come over to Oadby TC, you are always welcome 👌"  -- EDWARD

Could have gone either way. It was the first time for both of us in a league match - and the nerves showed early on. Some brutally long rallies though once we settled. Looking forward to social match with Darius in the near future. All the best for your remaining matches."  -- Dav

Darryl's technically a much better player than me, but I just tried to hang in there and managed to hit some decent, but at times, fortunate winners. On another day, I'm sure it would have been a very different result in Darryl's favour. I really enjoyed the game and hope we can play again soon 👌 It was my first time playing at Enderby. The courts were really good and it's a nice atmosphere down there too. Cheers Darryl, good luck with the rest of the games and see you soon 👍"  -- EDWARD

Aziz played some amazing shots that put me on the back foot but I managed to get ahead in the first set after some gruelling and long deuce games. An early break of serve in the 2nd was enough for me to see it through on serve, but this wasn’t without Aziz saving 4 match points in 2 separate games at 5-2 and 5-3.

We played ourselves slowly into the match with me probably capitalising more on Mit's struggle to get into form with his serves. His serves improved a lot in the second set and it was a much tighter affair with some epic ralleys and Mit valiantly fighting back from being behind.

In the second set Lin attacked more and it paid off. In the final set we both stepped up our game Lin mostly on the attack with me mostly playing a defensive. placing the ball kind of game , eventually at 5-5 it was anybody's match. At 6-6 we only had enough energy for a tie break conclusion. The tie break ebbed and flowed with breaks and holding of serve all over the place.

Player Comments:

  • "An epic match that had plenty of ups and downs. Very close all the way through set one, but with me holding serve at the crucial time. Set two saw Ben lead 4-1 before a fight back to 4-4. Then with me 5-4 up and with a match point - it was saved and we went 5-5 and then 6-6. The tie breaker saw me get the early advantage at 3-0 then it came to 4-3. Finally with three match points at 6-3, I managed to win through. Nerve wracking and exhausting tennis for both of us. I think it was a good introduction to the tennis league for Ben who hopefully will have many other epics down the line."  -- Tim

  • "Good to meet Arjun and have a competitive game with him. It was a wet day but fortunately the weather held for us over at Victoria park. Both of us won our first sets well and Arjuns drop shot and net play were excellent throughout the match. It all came down to the third set which Arjun started the stronger but seemed to over think his lead which fortunately gave me the set. Arjun was the stronger player on balance so a fortunate win for me. Good luck in the rest of your matches mate! "  -- Paul

Player Comments:

  • "Midday at Victoria park and the weather is great and stayed dry with no rain for the duration of the match. My arms and legs are not as heavy as they felt on the last match. Set 1 started off with a long deuce game that included game points for both players however after 5 deuces I finally broke serve and went on to complete the 6-0 bagel. Awesome feeling for getting past set 1 and winning 6 games in a row. That soon turned into 8 games in a row until I wasn’t able to break making it 2-1 in set 2. Another long deuce game at 3-1 and I was forced to hit more accurate strokes often finding the side lines as luck would have it. Not as much sprinting as there was in my last match and slightly more shot making. Good luck Arjun for future matches!"  -- Mayur

Player Comments:

  • "Early start at Victoria park. I wasn’t able to hold any of my opening 2 or 3 service games in set 1. Few aces are the positives out of a back and forth first set. Set 2 was a mirror of the first except not on my side of the scoreboard. I was having to work harder on returns in set 2 and got out of breath chasing balls often ending up losing those points. I started out on the front foot in the third, stayed ahead for the whole set with just 1 single break of serve but I couldn’t find that second break of serve that might have given me a bit of security. Kept my focus and got myself over the finish line. I’m pleased that I got the win however neither player deserved to lose. Great to be back playing singles. Good luck Mark for future matches!"  -- Mayur

Player Comments:

  • "Great to play James over at Rothley on a day where we battled the elements. I got out to a good 1st set lead, albeit with a break to hide in the car whilst a thunder storm came through. James continued to find his range in the second set, really grew into the match and when the big first serve went in it was unplayable. I got lucky to squeeze out the second set under a tie break. Really good guy and would happily play again."  -- Paul

Player Comments:

  • "Really good to meet and play a really competitive match with Dave over at Newton Regis tennis club. I jumped out to a 1st set lead, having a purple patch where everything seemed to go in. A complete reversal in the second set where Dave controlled the action with strong serves and well crafted points that had me running all over the place. The third set was down to the wire with both of us battling hard. Lovely to meet you Dave, good luck with the rest of your matches and hopefully we'll have another hard fought game once the league has finished."  -- Paul
