Player Comments:

  • "Paul is technically very good, which meant long but enjoyable rallies, clean shots, and some tough attacks to counter. I thoroughly enjoyed the match. "  -- Michael
Danny Gallagher bt Xabier Garmendia (Aug 15) 6-2, 0-6, 6-2
Reveal CommentDanny Gallagher bt Michael Petalas (Aug 13) 3-6, 7-6 (10-8), 7-6 (7-4)

Player Comments:

  • "A match for the ages. A match that lasted just shy of the 3 hour mark. Michael was a set and break up and served for the match twice at 5-4 and 6-5 with a match point thrown in. Then it was Michaels turn to comeback in the deciding set after being a break down and once again he had a few match points. Match was decided by a tiebreaker in fading light. There was a few outside distractions including a man and his dog watching, who was like our own commentator. There was some extraordinary rally's that defied belief. One game lasted about 30 minutes. I was pretty proud, that I didn't make 1 double fault in nearly 3 hours of play. Hats off to the League for making these matches possible. "  -- Danny

Player Comments:

  • "Not too sure about the exact score of the tie brake but, anyway, great match. Kind of crazy first set of more than 60 minutes with really long rallies. Joe has been ahead 5-0 and we have arrive to the tie break, a real flip coin with both players absolutelly exhausted. Great to meet Joe, great player with a very consistent game and a really good serve. "  -- Xabier

Reveal CommentPaul Overend bt Joe Brindley (Jul 16) 4-6, 7-5, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Great match - Joe took the lead and at 6-4 4-3 I thought I was on my way out. That moment took the pressure off and my errors reduced and winners crept up. More confident I managed to turn it around. Played at midday with the sun over our heads... both blinded when serving ha. The match was hotly contended and could have gone either way - Joes got an excellent serve and is a great sportsman - really enjoyed the match!"  -- Paul
Reveal CommentRob Slade bt Paul Overend (Jul 15) 6-4, 6-4

  • "Consistency won out - Rob chases every ball down and places them in tricky positions. Really good match - rob upped his game at the critical moments. We even had a dog as a spectator for most of the match ha"  -- Paul

Jonathan Scally bt Danny Gallagher (Jul 9) 6-3, 7-5
Reveal CommentRob Slade bt Danny Gallagher (Jul 8) 7-5, 5-7, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "One of the best and longest matches of my life, played in two different locations and three different surfaces over four hours with a 10 minute shuttle between Sefton Park and the Liverpool Tennis Centre. We ran out of time at Sefton Park, then we got moved on from the acrylic to the tarmac at Liverpool Tennis Centre because they had to lock up the acrylic courts at 5pm. Hundreds of long rallies and deuces, match could have been won by either player, neck and neck the whole match. Danny has got a powerful attacking forehand, and a steady backhand, so he won more points than me but also made more mistakes."  -- Rob
Reveal CommentRob Slade bt Michael Petalas (Jul 8) 0-6, 6-4, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Excellent match. Michael is very accurate and consistent with his shots and he crushed me in the first set. The next two sets were more even because I attacked the ball more, took it early and came to the net more. If you hit the ball short he will hit a winner and if you at the net he will pass you with deadly accuracy or hit a sublime lob"  -- Rob
Reveal CommentRob Slade bt Daniel Carr (Jul 6) 6-1, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "A lot of very good attacking play by Daniel who has a good forehand and can place it deep and wide. Most games in the first set went to a few deuces and as usual dogged defensive play by me won the games. "  -- Rob
