Player Comments:

  • "Fun match with Graeme. This was definitely a match of two halves (and on 2 separate courts). I lost my focus and concentration in the 2nd half and Graeme certainly relaxed in to it and swung more freely. Not sure how I managed to get the win in the 2nd set as it felt like Graeme had all the momentum. Best of luck with your remaining matches Graeme. "  -- Ian

  • "This was a really enjoyable match. Claire was by far the better player 1st set and played countless winners. Momentum was on my side for the 2nd set but 3rd set was anyone’s with lots of long rallies. Thanks for the match Claire and good luck with your other matches."  -- Max

Player Comments:

  • "Thanks Ian for the game. Although my score was poor (as usual) I really enjoyed the game. It was a good learning experience for me. We did get up to deuce a few times so the score could have gone either way. Thanks again for the hit afterwards that was really enjoyable. All the best in your other matches. Till the next time................ "  -- Elaine
  • "Thanks Elaine for posting our results, it was a great pleasure playing you and I enjoyed your energy and enthusiasm on the court. You continued to "show-up", smile and enjoy yourself while still focusing on your technique as if it was our first point: hence we still achieved a few good deuce games getting towards the end of our match.....will look forward to another match sometime in the future..." -- Elaine

Reveal CommentIan McLeod bt Claire Edwardson (Jul 8) 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Some long rallies and competitive points. The score line doesn't reflect the closeness of some of the games. I think it was the 3rd game of the 2nd set that we shared about 5 deuces finally taking it to 2-1 in my favour. When Claire got her racket on the ball the way she wanted, the power and technique was strong and I had to step up my own game...enjoyable match played in good spirit - thanks Claire and good luck with the remainder of your matches."  -- Ian
Reveal CommentIan McLeod bt Laura Wallace (Jul 2) 7-5, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Laura and I started our match in beautiful weather. She got of to a great start taking me to 2/5 (I was feeling rusty), something then shifted and I got a bit more into a rhythm and managed to claw it back taking it to 6/5 in the 1st set. The skies then opened up and the rain came pouring down and after taking some shelter for about 10 minutes we agreed to postpone until we can reschedule.....look forward to seeing what we can bring to our next meeting to complete our match."  -- Ian
  • "....it was somehow fitting that Laura was my first and last opponent for round 58. My experience and confidence had improved a bit from our first meet (after getting a set from Max), but sadly Laura wasn't in full health or playing at her proven best ability level....look forward to future games with Laura when we don't have health, weather and fragmented match issues to contend with....best wishes for the next round. See you on court next time ...overall, great bunch of people in rounds 58." -- Ian
