Player Comments:

  • "Really nice weather and a really good game. Some really good rallies and a match which reads very differently on paper than in reality. Thanks for the game, Andrea. I’m taking a few months off to attend to a knee injury but we’ll play again in a few round time!"  -- Chris

Player Comments:

  • "Harsher score than really represents the play. I was just finishing points well today, so managed to close off most games and have a convincing overall score. Nice weather, despite the growing number of people waiting to use the court so we had to finish most points a little faster than might have been more enjoyable. What chat we managed to squeeze in was really nice though, hope to play again!"  -- Chris

Player Comments:

  • "Perfect day to share some tennis, light breeze and gently overcast. Great to play with someone so enthusiastic about tennis. One of those matches where score does not reflect the dynamic, many deuce games. I was lucky Peter didn't have his new racket."  -- Peter

Player Comments:

  • "A very nice day to play the friendly game. The court turned out to be perfectly sheltered from the gusts, allowing a very needed breeze. We had a third player - the Sun, blasting directly where you'd toss on one of the court sides, prompting for very creative serving. "  -- Peter

Player Comments:

  • "Really tight match in quite windy conditions. Took the first set with a break and some decent ground strokes but Zachary took control of the second set with some big flat forehands. I attempted a comeback but lost the tie break. Managed to reverse the game and take the match tiebreak in the end but really could have gone either way."  -- Chris

Player Comments:

  • "Super warm conditions, bright sunny and very muggy. We traded breaks more than a few times in this match with a few brutal rallies in the sunshine. I had a good lead at 5-2 in the second, but Bruno managed to peg a break/hold back to make it 5-4, thankfully I managed to serve it out. Thanks!"  -- Chris
