  • "A roller-coaster of a match played in some tricky windy conditions! In the first set the wind hadn't picked up yet and with new balls I played some good tennis and managed to make some close games go my way. As the wind gusts increased Seb found some great tennis and I wasn't able to take my chances, especially in the tie break. With wind now blowing quite hard, me low on energy Seb got to a 5*-2 lead in the decider and I struggled to adjust to the wind. Somehow, really not sure how, I've found the last bits of energy and managed to mount a good come back to take the set 6:4. Many thanks for the match Seb! "  -- Pawel

Player Comments:

  • "Fun grueling match at Merchiston on snow-dusted courts. After sweeping the courts, the conditions were surprisingly excellent - we had no issues with slipping, and the balls (mostly) maintained their consistency. The match itself was full of extended rallies, with both of us constantly moving around the court trying in vain to put the other away. Matthew got to a quick start in both sets, and I had to claw my way back with defensive tennis and some fortunate points. Both sets could have gone either way. Thanks Matt, and hope to play again in the near future. "  -- John

Player Comments:

  • "Really fun match played on slightly iced over courts at Thistle! I've definitely played better than usual and the conditions at my 'home' courts suited my game better. In the first I was able to apply pressure and win those key points, allowing me to take the first set 6.1 In the second my level dropped off a bit, John was getting more used to the surface and conditions and raced away to a double break lead at 3:0. I was able re-group, mount a come back and take the tightly contested second 6:4. Thanks for a very enjoyable match John!"  -- Pawel

Player Comments:

  • "What a crazy and tough match, with so many swings of momentum. A proper battle with bloody knee and elbow! Early on in the first I was error prone and gave away many points, with Dan getting ahead by two breaks of serve. Somehow I managed to tighten up my game and claw back step by step, completing a great comeback from 2*-5 to 7:5. My momentum continued into the 2nd set, where it was my turn to get ahead by two breaks. Dan mounted his comeback to lead 5:4. I had one more good chance when serving for the match at 6*-5 - again Dan came back and then played a strrong tie break to take the 2nd set. Another swing of momentum came when I played good early points in the match tie break and got a strong lead to 7:0. Thanks for the battle Dan!"  -- Pawel

Reveal CommentPawel Milto bt Matthew Strachan (Nov 19) 7-5, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "First match after a while and straight onto damp and skiddy courts at Merchiston club. I really struggled early on in the first set, going down one break to 0:3, then all the way to 3:5 with Matt serving for set. I was able to tighten up my game and came back to take the set 7:5. In the second I was off to a good start, breaking to start and getting to 2:0 lead, only to lose the momentum and let Matt even it and then get ahead to 3:2. We've had period of no or short rallies thanks to good serving, and then some tough games with punishing and tactical rallies. Luckily I was able to play more solid tennis from that point and just managed to make the important points go my way and take the second set 6:3. Thanks for the match Matt! "  -- Pawel

  • "Fun match with Daniel at Abercorn on a nice night for tennis. A lot of long deuce points and close games . Daniel has a dangerous slice serve that I had to just chip or slice back, getting some fortunate bounce in turn. I was luckier with the lines tonight as well. Thanks Daniel for hosting me; hope to play again and best wishes the rest of your matches. "  -- John

I managed to chase him down in the first set, however Alfredo kept a steady nerve. As I began to get into my stride, Alfredo lost consistency. Coming from a set down, I wanted to stay strong and tried my best not to let Alfredo regain control of the match. A fun and interesting match, glad we finally managed to get to play.
