Collapse AllLiverpool Singles - Round 3 | Thursday 3 November 2016 to Wednesday 11 January 2017 (Midpoint: Wednesday 7 December 2016)

Another fantastic round of this still young league - thanks to everyone for getting involved. Despite the winter weather there was still lots of tennis on show and many competitive matches made for some close run groups. Here's to more tennis in 2017!

Group Summary:

To win group two is impressive but to follow this up as group one champion in the next round is quite an achievement and that is exactly what Anais did - well played Anais. The race for second place was extremely tight, with Michael, Jonathan and Ioannis all tied on eight points. After a number of calculations, it is Michael who claims the runner up position thanks to the fewest games conceded on average per match - great stuff!

Final Rankings:

  1. Anais Dabbadie [W4, L1] 10 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Michael Petalas [W3, L2] 8 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP
  3. Jonathan Scally [W3, L3] 8 includes 2 bonus points
  4. Ioannis Leontaris [W3, L3] 8 includes 2 bonus points

Player Comments:

  • "Having been judged the game of the round in the last round of the league, this match with Adam was eagerly awaited. I managed to get an early break of service in the first set. However the rest of the set and in the second set, the games where extremely close. Long rallies and both of us going for shots made this match very even. The result does not tell the full storey as this could have easily been reversed in Adam's favour. As usual playing against Adam, the match was played in 'good spirit' and hopefully I look forward to playing Adam in future rounds of the league."  -- Keith

Player Comments:

  • "Having played a very tight match in the previous round against Jonathan. I was once again expecting a similar encounter. An early Sunday morning start at 9.00 the first set was extremely close with long games and consistent serving from both of us. I managed to take the first set with the only break of service. The second set was again tight with long rallies and both of going for every point. The match was extremely competitive and played with great spirit from both of us. "  -- Keith

Anthony and Shirley both made impressive debuts climbing to the top of the group two table.

Group Summary:

Edward improved on his runner up position in the previous round to take the group three title with four wins out of four. However this was by no means easy, Danny in particular pushed Edward all the way in a three set epic that Edward eventually won by the narrowest of margins - congratulations both on a great effort!
