Player Comments:

  • "David had a slow start likely cause of his marathon played yesterday . I benefited from it , no doubt . Second set was much more competitive. After I took a 4-1 lead, David suddenly raised his game , came back to 4-4 , returning my serve much better and making great shots from all sides of the court . He had multiple break points to lead 5-4 which could have changed the whole momentum. I was fortunate to hold and managed to break his serve in the last game to win the match . Thanks David it was fun playing you . "  -- Robin

I've managed to get close to 5:4, but the set went Sam's way. I've had a great start in the second and won 4 games straight and managed to win the set 6:2 - setting up for a roller-coaster of a decider! I've started well to get 2:0 ahead, then Sam mounted a charge and won 4 games straight to lead 4:2! Somehow I've managed to win the next 4 games and win the set and match!

In the first set it was an even march to 5:5, with some good quality rallies and demanding serving in gusty conditions. I was able to win the last two games and take the set 7:5. In the second set Josef made some really good plays and led 4:2. Somehow I managed to mount a comeback to lead 5:4, couldn't close the set out and we ended tied 6:6. I was lucky to pull away early on and won the tie break 7:2. The match was very tense, conditions were kind of crazy, I broke my strings and had to use a 20 year old racket.

So much variation in shots too - which we always seemed to get back and thus rallies were endless at times and very exciting. Lots of skidding onto the shot too playing at Braids TC which is a fake clay surface, which took me a while to get used to but turned out to be very fun! The ball has a slower bounce too so it give you time to get into position and reach those short or wide balls. A great game and I hope to play you again soon Andrew.
