Player Comments:

  • "Pleased to finally get a league win against Danny after losing 4 match points in our last encounter. I knew that even when leading in the second set Danny has the determination to claw his way back into matches so I had to keep concentrated to close out the match. This was my last match in the Liverpool league, thanks for organising it, I've met some great people and had some epic matches!"  -- Edward

Player Comments:

  • "It was a pleasure to meet Alasdair. Despite me leading Alastair was clearly finding his shots as the match gathered momentum. An unfortunate turn of events saw him injure his achilles. "  -- Michael
Reveal CommentMichael Petalas bt Edward Mills (Jun 4) 6-2, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "It was good to play Ed again. We had a laugh, played some great tennis, and the friendly atmosphere did nothing to remove the competitiveness; Ed had an answer for every ball I threw at him. Ultimately he made a few more unforced errors than I did - it could’ve have easily been Ed writing the commentary. "  -- Michael

Player Comments:

  • "Always good to play Rob. His competing spirit saw him get frustrated to the point that it became his weakness. Still he played some brilliant points, showcasing his true potential. He’ll be unbeatable on the court when he harnesses that..."  -- Michael

  • "Good match, all long points and games. Two hours on court. My first match ever in Princes Park. Good courts, weather and views. Need to take a measuring tape and an adjustable spanner or net winder. No toilet or cafe so Sefton Park better and you can also reserve courts in Sefton Park"  -- Rob

Player Comments:

  • "Had a good, friendly game at Prince Park. I started well and took the first set 6-2. Ste took a little while to get going but the second set was a much closer contest. We both had chances and it could have gone either way but in the end I took it 6-4."  -- Matthew

Reveal CommentRoger Colman bt Steven Segerberg (May 25) 2-6, 6-1, 7-6 (7-1)

Player Comments:

  • "Two hours Wednesday 23rd (3 - 5 pm) and we finished 2-6, 6-1 and 5 each. Time was up, the court booked by someone else, all others being used. We finished today. I broke Steve, he broke me and I pinched the tie break. The scores don't show the full picture, most games going to deuce. We were evenly matched with the same 'chase everything down, keep the ball in play' attitude resulting in a bit of an epic tussle. A tough workout, competitively fought (every flipping ball!) but in a really pleasant and enjoyable manner. A great game. Thank's Steve. "  -- Roger
Reveal CommentPeter Baxter bt Matthew Adams (May 24) 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "An enjoyable game with Matt. Both of us made quite a lot of errors, and it was a bit scrappy at times, but plenty of good points as well. I edged it only by virtue of making fewer mistakes."  -- Peter
Reveal CommentPeter Baxter bt Steven Segerberg (May 22) 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "A good match with plenty of deuce games and some long rallies. Conditions were truly sweltering and both of us wilted in the heat towards the end of the second - a third set would have done for me. "  -- Peter
Reveal CommentMatthew Adams bt Atsushi Uchida (May 19) 7-6 (7-4), 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Nice, sunny day for my first match in the Liverpool league, after recently moving here. The first set was very close and momentum swung either way. Eventually it had to be settled by a tie break which I won 7 points to 4. I managed to get ahead early in the second set and I think we both actually improved in that set, hitting more winners with fewer mistakes. Thanks to Atsushi for an enjoyable match. "  -- Matthew

Player Comments:

  • "As Barbara and I warmed up we immediately new this was going to be a tough match as we were both evenly matched. first set was neck and neck right up to six all, in to tie break and again very close but I just managed to take those two extra points of her. Quick drink and Barbara was straight up for next set , she was steaming ahead now 4-1 up my game had gone down hill so I pulled out all the stops and managed to pull it back to 4-4. By now Barbara was feeling fatigued and I took full advantage of this and took the last two games to win . what a match ! could have quite easily gone any way."  -- Peter

Reveal CommentPeter Brook bt Adam Hughes (Jun 7) 6-4, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "In the warm up I thought Adam would not be a problem, but I was wrong. He is a very strong determine player who lets nothing past him. His serve varies witch is an other challenge .First set went to four all and we were both sweating in the evening sun. Second set I felt I had more control at 5-1 but then Adam upped his game and brought it to 5-2 however I managed to just take the next game and secure the match .What a match!" Peter

  • "Lovely match against Ernie on a sunny Sunday morning in Princes Park. We both played well and had some great rallies. I played against Ernie in a previous round but this felt like a much tighter match and I was pleased to get through in the end. "  -- Barbara
Reveal CommentPeter Brook bt Andrew Tarjanyi (May 26) 6-0, 6-0

Player Comments:

  • "Andrew was a very pleasant man who is a very keen tennis player. we were both of similar age and both started tennis late in our lives.The score does not represent the the true game, Andew had a very good serve,slightly in consistant but very fast even his second serve. We both enjoyed the match and i hope to compete against him again in the future. "  -- Peter
Reveal CommentErnie Traynor bt Adam Hughes (May 25) 6-4, 4-6, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "An epic game After going down 4-1 in the first set Adam brought it back to 4-4 before Ernie took the set 6-4. Second set Ernie again took the lead at 4-2 before Adam won 4 games in a row to take the set 4-6. The third set looked like Adam had got into a roll by taking a good lead for the first time at 2-4. However, Ernie played his way to victory (6-4) with some great rallies, sneaky drop shots and one or two (I’m looking at you “match point”) clips of the net. A great game with both feeling like winners at the end (Ernie a little bit more of a winner)."  -- Adam
Reveal CommentAdam Hughes bt Andrew Tarjanyi (May 21) 6-3, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Great game and good fun. Some good rallies and both broke serve. Andrews first serves are powerful and if more accurate it would be hard to break his serve"  -- Adam
