The second set was much closer and could have gone either way but I found my groove amongst some great rallies with plenty of powerful shots either way from the baseline. 3rd set was just hard work after already playing 2 hours and David jynxed himself by saying he never gets cramp! Looking forward to a 3rd match with you!"  -- Levi

Player Comments:

  • "Pleasure to meet Scott and what a game in difficult conditions. The wet ground probably allowed me to take a fortunate 6-0 lead but Scott soon found his stride when the rain stopped and I struggled to keep up! Some great serves from Scott and many lobs plus what has to have been the longest deuce I've ever played, but unfortunately before we could finish the match the floodlights went off... Saved by the bell like Joshua against Usyk."  -- Levi

Player Comments:

  • "Great Marathon Game really close which could I’ve gone either way. Many long serves and rallies. Andreas managed to save several match balls in the second and third set. In the third set, he was serving for the game to win 7-5 @ 40-30 but I managed to save it and lots of Cypriot words could be heard across Beacon Park. Both Tie Break were very close but I managed to finally win my first out three tie break in this tournament. Thank you for the game Andreas and I’m looking forward to the rematch! "  -- Matt

Player Comments:

  • "Great game really close with many long serves! I could tell Matt had improved with the help of a new racket that allowed him much more power, highlighted by his first serve which bounced and hit me in a sensitive area... (a medical timeout was needed haha) The Tie break in the first was a big challenge and the second set produced some great rallies at the net in which Matt was sending me left to right but I managed to just hold in this time. looking forward to a rematch!
