  • "Finally we managed to play together and it was really_ good fun. The score is a bit tough, but doesn't reveal your level at all, and I have to admit I was in a good mood this morning. My serve was there and my backhand as well. I hope we will be able to play again. Thanks again Robin. "  -- Benoit

Player Comments:

  • "Fun and tricky match played at Merchiston club courts. I found it challenging early on deal with Matthew's slice and punchy serve. I was able to adjust and get ahead in the 2nd serve, but Matthew kept me on my toes by mixing up tactics and even won points on his two underarm serves! Thank you for a fun match played on a beautiful day and for inviting me over to the Merchiston Tennis Club courts "  -- Pawel

Reveal CommentDominic Calzetti bt Noah Schwartz (May 23) 6-0, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "After winning the first 7 games relatively quickly, I felt like Noah wasn't very comfortable in the match, and that this might be a quick and easy win. But that immediately changed after the first game in the second set, all of the sudden he settled and I found myself in a very tough battle. The unforced errors stopped and I no longer felt like I could spread the court as well as in the first set. He remained very solid off both sides and so it turned into a good clay court battle of one needing the push the other back after 5/6/7 shots and then really attack and often have to play more than 1 volley to finish the point. A really excellent second set and it was decided by me guessing right on a reflex volley. Nothing more.Good match Noah!"  -- Dominic

Player Comments:

  • "It was a strange match to be honest, some very unorthodox rallies as the wind was strong at times. At one side you really had to smack the ball to get it over the net, and at the other just feather it to stop it from sailing into the fence.. that considered we had some really fun points and some really interesting chats, nice too meet you Matt and best of luck with the rest of the round :) "  -- Dominic

  • "Such a great match! I had to fight seriously and throughout all the games. Every game was really balanced. I probably was more luckier due to your first serve that wasn't as successful as at the first session we started. It was a pleasure to play with you and I am awaiting for the revenge ahah. Good luck for the rest of the competition. Thank you for the game and for the invitation. Ben"  -- Benoit

Player Comments:

  • "Pawel kindly invited me to play at the beautiful Thistle club. Today's match was played in heavy, damp conditions on artificial clay - which unfortunately for Pawel suited my game perfectly. Pawel didn't play badly at all I felt, it was just one of those days that I didn't really (aside from one loose game) put a foot wrong. Match was good fun despite the lopsided scoreline, with plently of varied and interesting rallies - and played in great spirits. Thanks for the game today Pawel, good luck with the rest of the round :) "  -- Dominic

Player Comments:

  • "Thank you very much Noah for this game. It was really nice to play in the evening, and to meet an other French tennis player. I managed to get a head start in the first set but the second set was really different. Indeed, your serves and your returns confuse me a lot, I had to get focus on every ball to stop making faults. The second set was thighter and you didn't make many faults, you were really consistent. I had no choice to intensify my game to win. It was a pleasure to play against you Noah, good luck for the rest of the league. Ben"  -- Benoit
Reveal CommentDominic Calzetti bt Callum Macdonald (May 1) 6-3, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "A very topsy turvey match today played on the beautiful rubber courts at St Serfs. Generally it was a high quality match; both of us were playing well, although neither of us could capitalise on any momentum whatsoever it seemed! Many more service breaks than holds, but apart from that it was a very fun match. Generally points were won rather than lost, with either of us having to work hard to pull the other off the court. Many many times I found myself at the net after what i thought was a decent approach, only to be passed on either wing! Callum attacked and defended well off both wings, so it took me a while to find the balance between offense and defense in order to close out the match in straights. Best of luck Callum for the rest!"  -- Dominic

Player Comments:

  • "Good match today against Ben, who is a really nice guy. Timing the ball the much better today I felt like I did alot of damage with my return and that might have made the difference throughout the match. Ben was hitting some very good serves but I was seeing the ball big and he was having to pick a few off his shoelaces. I had to stay very focused in the second set as Ben managed to get himself out of a few love-40 holes, coming up with some big serves and smart plays to really put the pressure back on me in the following game. But I managed to stay level headed and wrap it up in 2 sets. Great match and best of luck Ben with the rest of the round! "  -- Dominic

Player Comments:

  • "Very enjoyable match played in the evening at Thistle courts. We've had some great and varied rallies - frequently ending with John's deadly slice backhand forcing me into an error! In the end I was quite to lucky to walk away with a win in this contest. John made more errors in key moments, including a decent number of double faults, and I had many lucky shots with the ball dribbling over the net or some favorable mishits. I did make some decent shots, managing to get past John's defense and managed to hit some aces too. Thank you for a very fun match John!"  -- Pawel

Reveal CommentDominic Calzetti bt Seb Cotton (Apr 21) 6-3, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "It was a cold afternoon in the meadows, and i knew very quickly i was in for a fight.. which atleast kept me warm. Every game bar 1 was a battle, for 6-3 6-3 it took a good one and a half hours. Seb is a smart player that constantly probes for weaknesses and uses his head really really well. I felt like I had to be switched on the entire time and hold my nerve, because he gave me next to nothing, and at no point in the match did I feel comfortable because of it. It was a great match with a bit of everything, and much closer than the scoreline suggests. "  -- Dominic

Player Comments:

  • "Great evening match with very fast running Callum! It was very difficult to get past his defence. In the first set I've done well to land many first serves, returned well and minimised errors. In the second Callum found another gear, we both struggled to hold our serve games and had some very long and tense games. I had a chance to serve for the match at 5:4 and in the end I succeed to clinch it 7:5. We've had some hugely fun rallies with 2-3 successful lobs, great passing shots and also some good winners. Thanks for match Callum and good luck in the remaining match ups "  -- Pawel

  • "Excellent match to kick off the league - very lengthy and varied rallies; alot of heavy baseline rallies, nasty slices, points at the net, passes, it had a bit of everything. Neither of us played our best tennis, but it was quite a fight. John has a dangerous forehand that i managed to navigate my way past only just, i managed to put the ball in some awkward places - but on another day the result could have been very different. Great match though!"  -- Dominic

The score in the second set doesn't really reflect how close the games were - I had a couple of lucky wind assisted back-of-the-line shots that helped me to victory.

Player Comments:

  • "Really enjoyed this match - the score line in sets 1 and 2 was crazy! The 3rd set was really close and was only down to a few points here and there. Guillermo was like a wall and was returning everything- Only fitting that it went to a tie break! Thanks for a great match Guillermo and good luck with the rest of the league. "  -- Keith

Player Comments:

Reveal CommentAlbert Heredero Lopez bt Michelle Coughlan (Apr 19) 2-6, 7-6 (7-2), [10-5]

Player Comments:

  • "Amazing match that I wish we could even have played 5 sets, but unfortunately we ran out of time after such a long and nice second set, so we had to play a 10 point tie-break. Michelle is a formidable opponent who brought out my best version, I'm still not sure how I managed to win the match after her outstanding first set (2-6). I had so much fun, we did lots of beautiful points and hopefully we can play again. Good luck Michelle for the rest of the league!"  -- Albert

Player Comments:

  • "Excellent evenly matched game with loads of deuce points. In our last set, 5-0 up, on my match point, at my advantage, my leg gave way to cramp and I could not go on. Rather than make me play or concede the match, Andy very graciously took the loss and gave me the win. Who knows if Andy could have climbed his way back. Stranger things have happened. What a gentleman and great sportsman. 10/10 would play again."  -- Scott
