Player Comments:

  • "A great encounter which simmered nicely and finally kicked into gear in the second set (after I gave Keelan some tips on serving!) Keelan has a wicked one-handed backhand and hits the ball with plenty of spin off of both wings. We had some great rallies, with both of us hitting cross court winners and rushing to retrieve lost causes. All the best for the rest of the league Keelan and sorry to future opponents for helping him to improve his serve...!"  -- Adam
