Collapse AllMilton Keynes Singles - Round 21 | Thursday 1 October 2020 to Wednesday 4 November 2020 (Midpoint: Wednesday 28 October 2020)

Such a shame we had to end the round two weeks early due to lockdown but at least quite a few matches had already been played! A great effort from everyone and we look forward to getting going again soon!

Group Summary:

There was a lot of tennis left to play in this group however we welcomed 2 new faces at the top of the table with Wai Kong winning an impressive 5 matches on debut to finish 6 points clear of runner up Simon. The pair benefited from getting off to a quick start too as they were the only players to bag midway bonus points. Wao Kong won the group's only 3 setter against Ryan by "hanging on" against Ryan's "rocket fast" serves and groundstrokes.

Final Rankings:

  1. Wai Kong Kwok [W5] 12 includes 2 bonus points WINNER
  2. Simon Collard 8.2 [W2, L1] 6 includes 2 bonus points RUNNER UP
