Player Comments:

  • "This one was almost certainly going Darryl's way as he was firing on all cylinders in the first 2 sets. I had no flow, felt clunky and deservedly lost the first 3-6. I decided to switch rackets and played a bit better as a result, however, Darryl broke my serve at 3-3 in the 2nd to go 3-4 up and then won his service to go 3-5 up. I won my service to get 4-5, but he had two match points in his service game bit I managed to cling on to get my first break on him to 5-5. We ended the set on a tie breaker and I took it 7-4. But Darryl started to show signs of a back problem and was struggling from then on. I offered to stop but he said no. But he wasn't able to hit it as hard and I managed to get a win. You deserved the win in this one mate!"  -- EDWARD
