The first set was gruelling with Matt winning the tie break (which he really wanted after I won our last match on a tie break) after a monsterous 30 point rally. I managed to find an energy reserve in the second set to level the scores and then the third set was anyone's game! Some great long rallies and some tricky serves particularly from Matt. Thoroughly enjoyed the game even if my shouts in frustration suggested otherwise. Please use your old racket again next time, look forward to a rematch."  -- Levi
