Player Comments:

  • "Our last match in round 13 was selected as the match of the round and this match is a contender for this round. The real winner was the heat as both of us was struggling at the end of this three set epic. Graham led 3-0 in the first set and then saved three set points before winning 9-7 in the first set deciding tie break. The second set didn’t take as long as the first but there was a few deuces. The game deserved to go into a third and deciding set. Graham won this fixture by two sets to win in round 13 so now the head to head is even going into round 15. Well played as always Graham and I look forward to our next match. The winner today was Tennis haha 🎾😂 😂"  -- Wes
