Player Comments:

  • "Poor Steve had just played Graham before playing me to finish a game we started on Sunday. I was leading 4-2 before rain stopped play on Sunday. It was a very competitive and enjoyable match in which could have easily gone Steve’s way. There were many deuce games and the match was deserving of going to the wire. I look forward to more encounters with Steve in the future. Well played Steve and very unlucky not to have won this match. "  -- Wes
