The second set went to 3 all and we were both using the full court to try to force the error, and again I just lasted in the rallies long enough to win the set. Very enjoyable game"  -- James

Player Comments:

  • "Great to meet Asterios today, another tough match with someone with loads of good rallies all over the court. The first set was with serve until 3-3 until I managed to get the important break and see it out. In the second set I was tiring a lot after recent illness / injury / too many games in a week as a result! Asterios also came out with a lot more attacking deep baseline shots keeping me away from the net, racing into a 3-0 lead. Luckily I was able to keep it together and break back and get back to 4-4, and a final break of serve got me over the line. Pleasure to meet you Asterios and hopefully play again soon."  -- Damon

Ernie came to Mossley Hill this time and it was a great match on a surprisingly warm and sunny day in South Liverpool in November! Score doesn’t reflect the match as a lot of games were at deuce, and he made it really hard to hold serve and get over the line at the end! Always a pleasure Ernie, best of luck in rest of matches and hope to play again soon"  -- Damon

Reveal CommentDamon Daniels bt Wulf Paul (Oct 31) 6-0, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Good match today against Wulf who I’ve met once or twice before at LCC, usually playing doubles so made a change today with a singles fixture. The first set looks comfortable but mainly because my serve was more consistent, but when the rallies started we had some really good points / games. The second set was more evenly contested, a few errors crept into my game which Wulf capitalised on every time it felt and his serve % improved massively too. I felt at 3-3 we may be heading for a tie break but luckily I got back to basics and saw out the match. Best of luck in the remaining matches Wulf, hope to play again soon "  -- Damon
